To the greatest bunch of Primary 7's,
We hope you enjoy looking at our little collection of photographs. Have you changed? We don't think so. Make sure you turn on the volume just on bottom right of video to hear the music. Tissues at the ready Mums and Dads.

Delighted to see Hannah Murphy's excellent map work skills of our village Kinallen. So impressed with this remote learning.
1.Click on link for ideas to complete this week. I would like you to concentrate on Tuesday's activities for literacy this week. We have been concentrating on formal letters over the last term so now we will write an informal letter to a granny, grandad, aunt or friend. Try to lay out your address correctly in the top right hand corner and then begin to tell them all about your time in lock down. Why don't you post the letter and you might even get a reply? Edit and improve your work. It would be lovely to see you try the other challenges in the link also. I've written a letter to you just so you can see how the style is different in an informal letter. Open the link below.
P.S I know for a fact that grannys and Grandads are not doing well not seeing their grandchildren so they would be thrilled to get a letter.
2. Literacy unit of work comprehension, vocabulary and grammar work. Explore a text
This unit would take a week to finish if you choose to complete all the activities.
3.Maths: Go to www.whiterosemaths.com
Click on home learning and complete the activities in the maths videos. You need a pencil and paper and pause the video when you need to complete a task. Choose year 7 or move up or down a level.
4. Spellings: Learn 10 each day. Click on the link to open.
5. Fun for a wet day: Mountain bike challenge (indoors) Active learning at home. You just need a chair.
6.At this time of year we would normally be enjoying important Health & Wellbeing lessons from the lovely Jeannie. Please have a look at the powerpoints and activities below, perhaps with an adult who can answer any queries you may have:
7. WAU: When you left school you had a WAU booklet based on map skills. If we were able to attend school we would have gone on walks around the village noting the buildings and names of main roads. We would use these rough sketches to make our own map of the local village and even produce a key showing which buildings were educational, housing or business; noting whether the buildings were detached, semi-detached or terraced.
Perhaps you could have a go at this and try to produce a map of Kinallen or the roads near to your own house. Try asking an adult for help, or maybe a phone app like google maps etc might be of some use. Use rectangles to mark out any buildings. If they are detached, perhaps this could be one rectangle, semi-detached two rectangles together, terraced housing could be rectangles joint together. Use a different colour for each different type of building. Ideas below, but maybe you can come up with your own better idea of setting it out?

Lovely art work Aaron
Thank you Bradley for this outstanding panda art
Great ICT skills used here, I'm sure you'll agree. Thank you Bradley.
James C has created excellent rainforest activities also; but in other news I hear he can now drive a tractor and plant a field of potatoes. Multi-talented. I think I recognise that hoodie?
