Primary 7’s topic work on the Human Body is well underway. We have looked at the organs in the body as well as the skeleton. We can name bones and know the 3 main purposes of the skeleton: to protect, to support and to help with movement. Every Tuesday we are doing practical activities to back up what we have learned in Monday afternoon sessions. These pictures show a mixture of children from both classes designing a protective package for a Tunnock’s Teacake. The teacake represents delicate organs like the brain or lungs and the packaging each group designed represents the job of PROTECTING which the skeleton (skull or rib cage) does for our organs. We will post some of our write ups here when they have been completed.

As part of our ‘Mighty Me’/Human Body topic, we investigated if people who are taller have bigger feet. To do this we decided to order ourselves from tallest to smallest within our groups. Then we recorded the shoe size of each person in a table. We thought it would be easier to show the pattern on a bar or line graph. Each group proved the theory that generally, taller people have bigger feet than shorter people.

 

Primary 7 Classwork

Primary 7 are also mixing on a Thursday after break to complete literacy AND numeracy comprehension activities. We hope this will help us, especially with our problem solving abilities. Our numeracy comprehensions help us give our maths a context in real life!
