Mrs Patterson, Mr Colville and Mrs Barclay would like to welcome you to the P7 page.
We have a very exciting year planned for you all with lots of fun and interesting things to do.
This year may look and feel a little different to ‘normal’, but we hope that you will all be glad to get back to school to see your friends and have a great final year in P7 at Abbey.
The teachers are here to help you each step of the way and
REMEMBER; we are learning and adjusting too!
P7 brings lots of exciting opportunities to hold positions of responsibility too….
Would you like to be a House/Sports Captain; an Eco Warrior or even a Playground Buddy?
This year we will be exploring the topics of The Victorians, Africa, Fairtrade, The Irish Famine and Jimmy on the Road to Super Health. There will be interesting learning opportunities through all of our curricular subjects.
We will also be concentrating on -
Mental Maths strategies and how they can help us when solving problems and completing investigations.
Reciprocal reading methods to help us understand the content of the text and extend our vocabulary.
The Accelerated Reading Scheme, which is being embedded from Primary 5 to Primary 7, to promote and encourage independent reading. Every child aims to achieve a personal target and is rewarded if this is met.
Make sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page for lots more updates.
Teacher's email addresses:
P5 - P7 pupils are each placed into a house as part of the school behaviour system and earn points to decide on which house will win the cup at the end of each year.
In P7 pupils are chosen by their teachers to become house captains, vice captains and sports captains.
This is a new position that has been created this year for our P7s. The pupils were chosen because:
- They have previously demonstrated great responsibility.
- They are extremely trustworthy and can be relied upon to carry out tasks on behalf of the teacher and class.
- They are also supportive to their fellow classmates and can act as the general class representative and the pupil voice.
