Welcome to Primary 7OC

Rotary Club General Knowledge Quiz-


Congratulations to our Primary Seven representatives who took part in the recent Rotary Club General Knowledge quiz. Battling against Breadalbane, Kenmore and Grandtully Primaries, Orla, Oscar, Cameron and Millie pooled their collective knowledge and worked together to claim the victory.

After an hour of quizzing they scored an impressive 106 points and claimed first Prize- a magnificent £100 cheque for the school.

The team now go through to the next round, against the rest of Perthshire later this month.

Well done Millie, Cameron, Orla and Oscar.


Winter Term 2017

Friday 27th October.

Our topic this term is ‘Electrical Moving Models’. Our aim is to make moving Christmas Models- which will demonstrate our understanding of the transference of Energy from one state to another.

This week we were revisiting electrical circuit making to refresh our understanding- and to check that the equipment is still working.

By creating a variety of different circuits we learned how to create a complete circuit, how to adjust a circuit to give brighter lights, how not to overload a circuit, and how to check for faults.

We worked in pairs and remembered quite a lot of information from our previous learning.

 Next week we are going to investigate conductors and insulators. 

Autumn Term 2017

Poems available to view in Gallery below

Thursday 28th September was National Poetry Day.  Mrs Sherriff and Mrs Radford visited Primary 7OC to inspire and stimulate the class into writing poems around the theme of ‘Freedom’.  After a thoughtful and insightful discussion on what freedom meant to them, the pupils began to write their own Acrostic Poems.  I think you’ll agree that they have created sensitive and perceptive verses.

Well done Primary Seven and thank you to Mrs Sherriff and Mrs Radford for the ideas and input.

 Primary 7 also get an opportunity to go to Loch Insh in May. More information and a parents’ night will follow so keep an eye out for letters home about this trip.
