Literacy in P7

ActivitiesPosted by Miss Hamilton Wed, September 13, 2017 11:11PM

Over the past fortnight, we have been learning about hurricanes as part of our work on "USA." We learnt about how hurricanes form, read and wrote poems based on hurricanes and viewed online footage of both hurricane Harvey and hurricane Irma as they made landfall in Texas, Louisiana and Florida. Today, we looked at newspaper reports detailing the aftermath of hurricane Irma in Florida and selected key information to explain the numerous problems that this state now faces. We had the tricky task of prioritizing the issues with a talk partner and deciding which problems should be tackled first. Some fascinating discussions took place with some excellent reasons and opinions being shared in the written task which followed. I was very impressed with the standard shown throughout this activity - well done and keep up the great work!

Here are Cavan & Steven, Roxan, Erin & Callum and Abbie & Julia reading and selecting relevant information from the newspaper article to use in their discussions:

Self Portraits with a Difference

ActivitiesPosted by Miss Hamilton Wed, September 13, 2017 10:56PM

P7 combined their ICT and art skills to create digital split self portraits. A digital photo was taken, cropped and resized and then cut in half. Students then had the task of drawing in their features to create a full picture. The pictures make a striking display on the key stage 2 stairwell. Thank you to Mrs. Mack and Mrs. Allen for sharing their skills with the art part of this activity.

USA Hurricane Tracking

ActivitiesPosted by Miss Hamilton Tue, September 05, 2017 10:42PM

AS we are studying "USA" for our topic, P7 have been tracking the path of Hurricane Harvey over the past few days as it made landfall in Texas and then Louisiana. They have learnt about how hurricanes form in the Atlantic Ocean and can gather speed as they move across the Gulf of Mexico towards the southern United States. They are now waiting to see if Hurricane Irma strikes Florida.

Backing Books

ActivitiesPosted by Miss Hamilton Tue, September 05, 2017 10:35PM

During the first week in P7, students have been thinking about the skill of self management and have learnt how to back their own books. They quickly discovered it was much easier to work with a peer than alone. I'm sure a lot of parents will appreciate theis independence next year when a large pile of books for different subjects arrive home from post primary schools to be backed!
