Edinburgh International Festival Schools’ Concert

On Monday, 27th of August, P7 were invited to see watch the Virgin Money concert with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

They were performing pieces from Gustav Holst’s, ‘The Planets’. They played Mars, bringer of War, Saturn, the bringer of Old Age, Uranus, the magician and Jupiter, the bringer of joy!

We were seated next to lots of Primary 7s from schools around Edinburgh.

“I liked it because I love classical music and how it was a live performance of the music. I also liked the sound of the music and my favourite pieces were Mars and Jupiter.”

“We really enjoyed it, it was super fun!”

“Everyone enjoyed the concert very much, despite the never ending wasps!”

Welcome to Primary 7

Welcome to the Primary 7 blog 2018/2019! As the new term gets underway, please find below some information that should be helpful.

 

PE is on Monday and Friday. Please ensure that your child has indoor shoes, a PE kit (shorts/tracksuit bottoms and a t-shirt). These are usually kept in school on their peg.

 

Thank you to everyone who made it along to the homework session yesterday. For those of you who could not make it, some useful information is below and the powerpoint is attached to this post.

Each P7 pupil has a homework folder in which to write out their spellings and choose a spelling task from the grid (which can be ticked and dated when done). The spelling words are copied into the homework diaries, but will also be posted on the blog each week.

There is a reading journal in the folder. Choose a task each week to complete in relation to a book that is being read and enjoyed at home. These do not have to be completed in order.

From next week, Maths consolidation tasks will be set on Education City. For this week, please re-familiarise yourself with the website and check the login works. The login is the same as last year and a copy of it is stuck in the homework diary.
