P7 - Mrs Gill

Welcome to P7!


The Seed Stop, our Young Enterprise business, is now closed. We have sold a staggering 230 sunflower-growing kits and made a profit to buy some end-of-term treats after all our hard work. Thank you to everyone who supported our business and we hope you enjoy planting and watching your sunflower grow.

Party time in P7! 

Today we finished making and wrapping gifts for Christmas before enjoying our much anticipated Christmas Party! The boys and girls had budgeted and planned the party food earlier this week, so today they very much enjoyed eating and drinking alongside their chums! 

Followed up by some festive fun and games, the room was filled with merriment and laughter. What a great wee day! 


Time to budget in Year 7

Today the boys and girls had to plan Mrs Gill’s finances for some classroom resources! They worked well together and stayed within the budget as they browsed through the catalogues, determined to get the best value for money!

Pudsey Day Year 7’re never too old for a day in your PJs! What a cosy and colourful crew! 


Our colourful, “crazy-haired” Year 7s enjoyed the pumpkin trail and treats organised by the PTA this morning. It’s been a lovely way to end  this half-term so a million thank-yous to all involved in organising it! 


It’s Maths Week Ireland this week. 

Our Year 7 pupils have been enjoying their daily Numeracy activities in class, alongside playing Numeracy games, getting creative with their Maths skills and thinking about how useful Maths is to us all in everyday life!

An energetic end to the week for Year 7 as they completed some circuits in the sunshine for PE this afternoon. 

This afternoon, our Key Stage 2 classes enjoyed taking part in a live session from BBC Teach called Wellbeing: Bouncing Back to School! We discovered lots of useful tips for looking after our wellbeing and had some fun along the way!

After a busy morning in the Year 7 classroom the boys and girls relaxed and got creative this afternoon. They learnt about Picasso and cubism and then created some amazing abstract portraits.
