C7

This week, we have been continuing to work on enterprise in maths. We researched how much our calendars were costing us to make and then did market research to ask people how much they think they would pay for them. This helped us to work out the costings for our business and we are looking forward to selling them next week.

In literacy, we did an extended piece of Gaelic story writing and thought about using a variety of more interesting adjectives and similes to make our writing engaging.

We are really enjoying reading Wonder as a class novel and it has helped us to discuss many themes including bullying behaviour. It is helping us to think about how others can feel and showing the importance of showing kindness and respect to others.

 

An Aimsir

Anns an sgoil-àraich tha sinn ag ionnsachadh mu dheidhinn an aimsir. Chuidich a’ Bh-uas NicNeacail sinn a’ cruthachadh stèisean na h-aimsire   airson a’ ghàrradh againn.

A-nis ‘s urrainn dhuinn tomhais agus clàradh àird na gaoithe, an teothachd agus dè na thuit de uisge gach là.

Bidh sinn cuideach a’seinn an orain seo airson ar cuideachadh leis na facail Gàidhlig airson diofar seòrsa aimsir:

 

Dè seòrsa tìde a th’ againn an-diugh?

Dè seòrsa tìde a th’ againn an-diugh?

A bheil an t-uisge ann,

A bheil e grianach,

A bheil e sgòthach,

Dè do bheachd?

A bheil e gaothach,

A bheil e tioram,

A bheil e reòite

Làn le sneachd?

Dè seòrsa tìde a th’againn an -diugh?

Abair thusa tìde a th’againn an-diugh!

Abair thusa tìde a th’againn an-diugh!

 

In sgoil-àraich we have been learning all about the weather. Ms. Nicolson helped us to create our own weather station for the sgoil-àraich garden.

Now we can measure and record the wind direction, the temperature and the rain fall each day.

We also sing the song above to help us learn the Gaelic vocabulary for the different types of weather.

 

Là Naobh Anndra

Bha tòrr spòrs againn anns an sgoil-àraich a’ comharrachadh Là Naobh Anndra an t-seachdain seo.  Bha spòrs againn ag èisteachd agus a’ dannsa ri ceòl Albannach agus a’ dèanamh dannsa Albannach còmhla ri chèile. Abair thusa gu robh sinn a’ coimhead spaideal anns na fèileadhean agus bonaidean againn cuideachd!

This week in sgoil-àraich we celebrated St Andrew’s Day. We had great fun listening to and dancing to Scottish music together. We tasted different Scottish food and enjoyed dressing up in traditional Scottish dress. Don’t we look great in our kilts and bonnets?

Là na Taingealachd Stàitean Aonaichte Aimeireagaidh

Anns an sgoil-àraich bha sinn ag ionnsachadh mu dheidhinn Stàitean Aonaichte Aimeireagaidh agus na tha iad a’ dèanamh ann an sin airson comharrachadh Là na Taingealachd.

Thainig dà mhamaidh Aimeireaganach a-steach dhan sgoil-àraich airson innse dhuinn beagan mu dheidhinn Là na Taingealachd. Dh’innse iad dhuinn carson a tha iad a’ comharrachadh an là seo agus na tha iad a’ dèanamh mar theaghlach air an latha sònraichte seo.

In sgoil-àraich we have been learning about the USA and about why many Americans celebrate Thanksgiving.

Two of our American mums came in to tell us a bit about Thanksgiving. They explained to us why Thanksgiving is a special celebration day in the USA. They also told us about what they do as a family to celebrate this special day.

C7 Pizza Party

A group of C7s made pitta pizzas on Friday during our skills for life, work and creativity lesson. First we had to wash our hands and the tables to make sure we were being hygienic. We washed the vegetables and then we chopped them and made sure the oven was at the right temperature. We learned how to peel mushrooms and we were practising using knives safely.

‘It was so satisfying peeling the mushrooms!’

This week, we decided to share out the cooking and everyone got to taste the pizzas.

‘They were healthy and tasty!’

We also recently made Blueberry Muffins and unfortunately we didn’t have a scale to measure the weight of the ingredients so we had to do a lot of maths calculations to work out the right measurements. We converted the measurements into cups.

We have also had a group playing music together and a group learning how to use a sewing machine. We enjoyed a great dance performance from a group who had worked hard to make a well coordinated routine.

Maths

In maths we have been making calendars so we have been learning about time and the biggest part of our learning in maths just now is Enterprise.

We are learning about profit and loss and how important it is to think about money when running a business. This week we are working out how much we are spending to make our calendars and then we will decide how much to sell them for to make sure that we make a profit.

Literacy

We are learning about how to analyse a text and how to create character logs and we are also learning about how to create a setting using interesting vocabulary. For writing our own settings, we were given an image and we had to use it creatively.

We are reading ‘Wonder’ just now as our class novel.

‘Wonder is helping us to think about what might be going on around us and that everything isn’t perfect. It has helped us to look through the eyes of someone who has a disadvantage. It helps us to think about how everyone is not the same and that it is important not to judge people because they are different.’
