After listening to numerous speeches of good quality, asking questions and voting democratically, P7 have elected four representatives to share their views and ideas within the ECO Council and School Council groups. Our two ECO reps are Erin and James - congratulations!
The two School Council reps are Emma and Dan. They have already attended their first meeting and undertaken some other work such as designing factfiles and timetables.

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:

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.
Holly, Dan and some other P7 students as you have never seen them before!

Thank you to all the parents who attended the P7 information session this afternoon. It was great to meet you all and I look forward to working with you throughout the coming months. If you were unable to attend the session, a copy of the information booklet which was distributed will be given to your child tomorrow.
