Pr 7A Kakatsitsi Drummers

We had a loud and exciting start on our return to school today!

A drumming group from Jamestown, Ghana were showcasing their fantastic skills.

“It was cool how they played the instruments and used everyday materials to make them from e.g. cow skin, seeds, grasses” Gold group feedback

“We liked how they didn’t just show you but they gave us something to do and we had to join in.” Platinum group feedback

” Very interesting to find out how the drums were made and learn more about their culture.” Titanmium group feedback

“It was fantastic how they changed the sound with their feet.” Tungsten group feedback

We had a great first session at World of Work. We looked at the engineering and technology around prosthetic limbs. We designed and created our own robotica arm and relected on the skills we used e.g. setting goals, cooperation, problem solving, explaining . Thank you to our parent helpers for their time and support.

We are sending home our first Key Assessment Task. We would appreciate it if we could have it returned by Wednesday 18th September. KAT 1 has a Health and Wellbeing focus. We hope you enjoy sharing our work.

Have a lovely long weekend!

We had a big Lost Property clear out this afternoon. Bags of items had appeared at the end of last term. One of our Pr 7 jobs is to sort Lost Property every week.

Our reading group routine was established this week and we are getting into our new books. Ask us about our unusual group names!

Great start to spelling and getting homework done on time. Keep it up.

The Tungsten group were our group winners this week and we have also had a few successful “Secret Students”.

Pr 7A Welcome Back

We have all settled in and are geting into the school routine.

An overview of our plans wil be added to the blog at the end of this week to give you a bit more information about how what we will doing over the term.

We all enjoyed supprting our buddies last week. It was lovely to meet their parents and give them a “Welcome to Pr 1” card we had made. We will keep an eye on them in the playground for the next few weeks.

We have made our class charter and have our new homework jotters covered and ready for action!


This week the upper school started Explore classes: our new outdoor learning lessons (p3/4 will have this next week). All 250 kids had the chance to say what they thought Explore should be about and what they wanted to learn. All the classes started making class totem poles! To quote one P5, “This sounds amazing!”
