Teacher :- Ms Giebeler
We’re off to a great start in P7G this term, everyone’s back and full of enthusiasm. This term we are participating in the Shakespeare Schools Festival again and this time it’s a comedy – A Midsummer Night’s Dream. We’ll be performing at the Brunton Theatre in Musselburgh this year and tickets go on sale on September 10th. Watch this space for more updates coming soon!
Our work on A Midsummer Night’s Dream has come to an end and we were delighted to perform the play at the Brunton Theatre on 8 November. It all went very well indeed and we have just received our appraisal from the Shakespeare School Foundation. Click on the document to download here:
We have been working on studying Charles Dickens’ novel, Great Expectations and are enjoying the plot and the characters. We have completed writing tasks linked to the story, including a biography of Miss Havisham.
For reading lessons we have been using extracts from other novels, for example Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Alexandre Dumas’ Three Musketeers, H G Wells’ The First Men in the Moon and probably our favourite was Wilkie Collins’ The Woman in White
We have continued our Beat That Challenges and are making great progress. We have been covering lots of work on fractions and calculation, including multiplying by 2-digit numbers and subtraction strategies.
We always enjoy problem solving activities and practical maths activities.
The topic this term is WWII.
