Dear Primary 7

Dear Primary 7,

I hope that you have had a good week and that you and your families are safe and well at this time. We are now approaching the Easter Holidays, which will look quite different from how we may have planned them to be.

The second level team have planned a holiday grid  of fun activities if you choose to do them! This is your holiday and for you to enjoy how you can! This will be posted at the start of next week, so look out for it if you want some ideas!

My store cupboard baking was almost successful! The flapjacks taste good, but I added too many raisins, so they crumbled apart (I should have added more butter and golden syrup to bind the extra dry stuff added). The cookies were more of a success! The recipes are in the links below if you want to have a go yourself!

(remember you can add in or swop ingredients for what you have in your cupboard-any soft sugar will be fine for the cookies and you can swop golden syrup for honey or maple syrup in the flapjacks) You can also type what ingredients you have into bbc good food and it will give you suggestions of recipes.

I hope you have planned some nice activities to enjoy over the holidays. I plan to read some new books, walk Copper, revisit my ‘how to draw book’ (as you have all seen my attempts!), chat to friends online and try some cross stitch sewing. (I have a picture of a bee to try, will upload a photo after the holidays!).

Copper is still loving life but he is very sleepy these days! He usually sleeps when we’re out at work and now he is awake all day. Now he tends to fall asleep on the sofa by about 5pm!

I hope you are staying well, safe and being kind and patient with one another. I will be thinking of you all during the holidays and hoping that you are having a restful, enjoyable time.

Look after yourselves and take care!

Miss Kerr

P7 Twitter Account

Dear Parents/ Carers and pupils,

To help us keep in touch we are setting up a class Twitter page. The age limit is 13 on Twitter so it is important that parents and carers monitor and oversee the communication on this account. The account will be private and monitored during school hours only. It is important that your child stays safe on line so here is some information for you. https://www.net-aware.org.uk/networks/twitter/

If we have photo permission for the school website and blog we will apply this to this Twitter account as well. The code of conduct applies so everyone should be polite, considerate and respectful. It is a good way for you to share what you have been doing and for us to keep in touch.

You can follow us @BenNevis2019 and the school Twitter account @royalmileps

The Twitter accounts are linked to the Blog as well so you can see see these posts as well.

Our first challenge is for you to design us a Profile Picture for the account!

Your submission must be in the shape of a circle but it can be drawn by hand or made on a computer or tablet. It can be a drawing or a collage or some other electronically made image. This post from yesterday can help you if you want to scan a picture to send in. (Kindly put together by Mrs Aylward). You may wish to use this document to help your design: Twitter Profile Picture Competition. Please email submissions to admin@royalmile.edin.sch.uk.

  • What we are looking for:
    • a clear, neat picture/image either shaded using tone or popping with colour to grab attention!
    • the picture should have something to do with Primary 7! (think of our experiences as a class for example)
    • No larger than what can fit onto an A4 page.

Thank you! I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Second Level Home Learning for School Closure- Week 2

Dear Primary 5, 6 and 7.

We hope that you and your families are keeping well. We are thinking of you all and hoping that you are safe, well and content at this time.

Beneath this message are some further links to support you in your home learning. We hope that you have found the previous grid both helpful and enjoyable. If you have not yet had a chance to look at them, please do not worry. We understand that this is an unusual time and it can take a while to settle into a routine that works for you and your family.

The first link is the new home learning grid for this week. Within it are suggested activities for each curricular area, building on those from last week.

The second link is a list of classical music pieces and suggested activities. It contains information about the composer, the music, links to an introduction online and a full performance. At the end of each page, there are suggested creative activities to link to the music.

Finally, the third link is a list of helpful websites, all of which are free and designed to support you in your learning. The document contains links and descriptors, for you to explore those which interest you.
