P7 Homework for 16th of November


Please see the spelling patterns for this week. Choose an activity from the grid to complete at home. Remember, you can also upload photos or documents onto TEAMS for you homework instead of using the folders.

This week in Primary 7, we shall be looking at the challenges set by the Junior Road Safety Officers in P5. Instead of the reading comprehension task, have a look at the home tasks on the grid below. There is also a template that you can use to help you to design the helmet. You can email your entries to the office or upload on TEAMS.

Mental Maths

We are continuing our focus on mental maths in class. Please choose an option from those highlighted on the document attached.

Continuing the Conversation

Below is a summary of some of the aspects of learning we have been doing in class this week and suggestions for ways you may wish to continue the conversation at home. These suggestions are optional but if you would like to share anything you have been doing, please email or share them with me on P7 class TEAMS.
