Primary 7 - Mr MCquitty
Welcome to Mr McQuitty’s P7 class page!
We’re going to be extremely busy this term, but we’ll be aiming to showcase some of the work that we produce along the way, including photos of us in the process of completing it.
Be sure to check back to see how we are getting on!
Planning is well underway for our upcoming Space themed animations. Some great ideas are already coming together within our newly formed 'Production Companies'.
On Monday 19th April, P7 began the work of creating the clay characters for their upcoming animations. Still a bit of modelling to go, but the models are coming along well!
Rocket Design Technology Challenge
On Thursday 15th April, P7 had a great day completing a Technology Challenge, when they had to design a rocket, using A3 card and lollipop sticks, to be launched via a launchpad powered by energy from elastic bands.
Some great ideas, excellent teamwork and very impressive distances covered by the rockets!
Primary 7 Leavers Hoodies
While we severely hampered by the low sun when taking these photos, it has been great to see everyone in P7 wearing their impressive leavers’ hoodies to school since Easter.
A very special final term at Meadow Bridge for our class awaits!
Green Screen Recordings
As part of their work on Earth and Space, P7 have been working hard on scripts for 'A Tour of the Solar System'. Each pair collaborated well with others in larger groups, as they recorded their pieces to camera in front of our Green Screens using the iPads.
Next step, putting things together in iMovie!
'Odd Socks Day' in Primary 7
Anti-Bullying Week in Primary 7
We concluded an extremely worthwhile set of Anti Bullying Week activities in class with a special virtual assembly, followed by a positivity partners task, where each P7 was matched with an anonymous classmate, for whom they created a positivity puzzle to complete and enjoy. Some photos of this task, and our Anti Bullying Week class notice board can be seen below.
Remembrance Day Art
P7 marked Remembrance Day by creating their own version of late local artist Neil Shawcross' painting, 'Poppies'.
We were delighted when Rachel won a prize for her entry into the Royal British Legion's Remembrance Day competition, and you can see some of the finished 'Poppies' reproductions on display behind her winning entry!
The Properties of 3D Shape
There was some great teamwork in evidence in Room 12 when P7 revised the properties of 3D shape, and collaborated to create some attractive and informative posters. Well done everyone!
