P7L

Welcome to Mrs Lewis' Primary Seven class 

Click HERE for more information on Leavers' goodbye on Tuesday 30th June.

P7's, please come to school on Tuesday 30th, from 11am to 12 noon to collect your hoodie, report, leavers booklet and York refund.
Looking forward to seeing you all.
Mrs Lewis and Mr Donaghy xx

 

P.7 - this is your last homework of the year!


Please send myself or Mrs Lewis a short video (30 seconds max) with a message. It could be about what you loved in Rosetta; what you will miss; your own idea; or simply wave if you don't want to say anything - it's your choice (but you have to send us something!!!).

We are planning to put all your videos together to do a leavers video - you don't want to be the only one left out!!
See the teachers videos on the website if you want some ideas.
Please send the videos to your teacher by this Friday (19th June).

If you didn't complete your last homework about your memories we are going to give you an extension until Friday 19th June. There will be no extension possible beyond that date as we will need to write up and print the memories so we have them ready to give you when you collect your hoodie!

Both classes were always really good at getting homework done well and on time - make sure you keep it up to the end!

SPORTS DAY RESULTS 2020:

Congratulations to all those who took part!

 

P7,
We need you think of your journey through Rosetta. For most of you, you will have been a pupil in Rosetta since Nursery; for some, it will be a shorter length of time. However, it doesn't matter how long you've been in our school, you just need to think back from your earliest memory in Rosetta until now in P7.

We want you to think of just 4 specific memories and write a brief sentence/explanation for each.

The 4 memories are:
1. My funniest memory is...
2. One of my happiest memories is...
3. My biggest/best achievement/My proudest moment is...
4. The best thing about Rosetta is...

Your memory can be from any year that you were a pupil in Rosetta.

Here are a few examples of the sort of thing you can write.

Example 1 - My funniest memory is in P6 when we were acting in our classroom and __________fell backwards into the bin!
Example 2 - One of my happiest memories is sitting outside in the field eating lunch, playing and laughing with my friends.
Example 3 - My proudest moment is when I got picked as captain for the football team.


Remember, the important thing is that what you write is your memory and it means something special to you.

Just one more thing (I promise) - some of your memories may include other people. Please think carefully about what you are writing about them and consider if they would be ok with it.
For example, you may have thought it was hilarious that________ coughed and accidently farted at the same time! They may not have thought that this was funny and would be annoyed if you wrote about it. You know each other very well, so please be considerate .

 

Can you also email us 2 or 3 photos of yourself that we could use alongside your memories?
We need 1 of the photos to be a recent one, the other(s) can be from any time/age.


All you need to do now is type out your 4 memories, attach 2 or 3 photos and email it, sending it to me by Friday 12th June.

Thanks,
Mrs Lewis

Well P7,

It’s hard to believe this is your last month of Primary School. It’s definitely not the way we want your time in Rosetta to end, and we know you feel the same way too.

For those of you who have managed to make it onto Google Classroom,  your work will be posted there.

If you are collecting a work pack this week from school,  your instructions will follow underneath this message.

We hope you and your families are all still keeping well, and we look forward to when it is safe to see you all again. 

Love Mrs Lewis and Mr Donaghy. Xx

 

Hi P7, We know some of you have finished all the work on India and are eager to start our new topic. Work will be available from Tuesday on Google Classroom. If you would like a pack printed, email Mrs Crawford tcrawford036@c2kni.net and you can collect it on Friday 5th June. Packs will only be printed if requested. 

 

Before starting something new, please share some of the work you did on India, you have my email address, clewis444@c2kni.net, I'd love to see some photos of your work.

  4. Look to see the work that has been assigned - there is already something there for you to do!

If there are any problems then please email Mrs Crawford - tcrawford036@c2kni.net 

 

 

Hi P7,

We hope that you and your families are all keeping safe and well. 

We’re sure you have really enjoyed finding out and exploring lots about India...it really is a fascinating country.

Just a little idea if you want to start thinking about our next topic which is The Vikings. Our Class Novel for this topic is Arthur Quinn and the World Serpent by Alan Early.  It is available to buy from Amazon if you wish to do so. Paperback copies start at £7 and Kindle price is £3.99. It is an amazing book,  one which you will definitely enjoy reading, no matter what your preferred genre is!

 

If you are finished / finishing your India project you can begin  your work on our Viking topic.

 

Before you conduct any research describe and draw what you think a Viking man and woman look like and what they do.

 

For  some initial research on the Vikings open/copy this link to find out more: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/ztyr9j6

There is also additional information if you open/copy this link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/history-ks2--ks3-vikings/zhys92p

 

Following your initial research, has your opinion of Vikings changed? Why?

 

Viking topic information with details on activities to complete will follow here soon, but feel free to conduct more of you own research - there is so much to find out!

Stay safe and look after one another.  We miss you greatly and wish we were back in school to finish your last term in Rosetta. 

 

Love Mrs Lewis and Mr Donaghy.  Xx





 

P.7 have been busy while they have been away from school!

 Message from Scripture Union about online RE lessons below. These lessons have been delivered in Rosetta before by Heather Bailie (Knockbreda and Ballynafeigh Methodist youth worker) and aim to help children transition from primary to post primary school.

 

What are the ‘It’s Your Move’ lessons?

The 'It’s Your Move' lessons link to the RE curriculum, with interactive activities helping pupils to explore the themes of change, choice and challenge, specifically helping them think through their move to their new school. Each week there will be a link to the Bible, delivered appropriately and sensitively for the classroom.

 

Everything you will need for the lessons will be accessible via this link each week:

https://suni.co.uk/itsyourmovelessons/

There you will also be able to access any related activities or sheets needed for that week’s session. The videos will contain all the content needed for the lesson, and therefore don’t need to be teacher led.

 

You can also follow our Facebook page for weekly updates and a P7 assembly which will be released on Thursday 28th May, 10amhttps://www.facebook.com/ScriptureUnionNI/

Hi P7,

We hope you are all keeping well and staying safe. We’re sure you are enjoying finding out lots about India. Why don’t you try cooking a simple curry and bake some roti or naan bread to go with it?

Make sure you spend time outside safely and have some fun with your family - we definitely are!

We miss you very much and want to get back to school as soon as it is safe to do so.

Looking forward to seeing you all.

Love Mrs Lewis & Mr Donaghy

We have been researching life in Victorian times

We problem solved using Victorian money and recorded the answers in Victorian Imperial money and modern decimal money

We researched and recreated a range of logos of companies that existed in Victorian times

Enter text...

We researched aspects of The Crimean War and wrote a chronological account of The Charge of the Light Brigade from a Russian gunner's point of view.

We read The Charge of the Light Brigade and then created our own parodies based on a range of different ideas such as The Charge of the Spider Brigade

We researched a range of toys used by rich and poor children in Victorian times and then recreated them.  We also created factfiles based on the toys we made.

Following our work on the colour wheel we drew things in use in the Victorian times and used a colour wheel in the picture.

We read the spell from the witches in Shakespeare's Macbeth and then created our own spells
