Welcome to Room 7’s Class page
May has been a busy month for Room 7. We have continued with our Forest School learning and have started our swimming sessions. We are also all working very hard on our individual targets. Please take some time to have a look at our learning this month.
Our Recent Learning
It has been a busy few weeks in Room 7! Enjoy looking at some snapshots of our learning from the past few weeks…
Our Learning This Week
What a busy week it has been for Room 7! We had a great start to the week trying some pancakes for Pancake Day on Tuesday…everyone agreed they were delicious. On Thursday we had a great day for World Book Day…especially beating Mrs Loggie at the World Book Day quiz! We have also continued to work hard on our targets and engage in lots of literacy and numeracy activities. Have a look below at what we’ve been up to.
This week in Room 7 we have been learning about half past times, the ‘th’ sound and all about the seasons. We are looking forward to World Book Day next week and will be working on some World Book Day activities throughout the week.
Enjoy having a look at some of our photos below.
Below are some photos from our last two weeks at Hamilton Accies. Everyone in Room 7 has had a fantastic time!
The boys in Room 7 have been busy for the last few weeks. We have continued with our Day and Night topic, had a few more visits to Hamilton Accies and have been learning all about time. Below are some photos of learning experiences.
A Busy Few Weeks
It’s been a busy few weeks in Room 7. We’ve started our visits to Hamilton Accies on a Friday and we are all having a great time! Two weeks ago we celebrated all things Scottish with Room 1 and tasted some Scottish foods, the shortbread was definitely the winner in Room 7. Our Purposeful Play Area has a Scottish theme at the moment and we are enjoying working in the Tourist Office and making castles from sand. We have a few snapshots from the last few weeks below:
Adverse Weather Activities
In the event that we have adverse weather over the next few weeks and the children are unable to make it into school, there are some activities that they can be working on at home:
- RM Maths
- Topmarks website (literacy and numeracy activities)
- Doorway Online website (literacy, numeracy and mouse control activities)
- Reading Books
- Letters – use to make words, play missing letter games, etc.
- Words – can they find these words anywhere else? Hide them around the room to find.
- Play (cars, play doh, action figures, I Spy, jigsaws, etc.) – focus on turn taking, discussion about toys, colours, counting.
Remember our topic this term is Night and Day so any programmes related to this or articles or books that they find would also be relevant. Most importantly though…have fun!
This week we have been continuing with our IDL topic and have really enjoyed the story Day Monkey, Night Monkey by Julia Donaldson. We have continued to work hard on our literacy and numeracy activities and have enjoyed working on throwing and catching during our gym lessons with Room 1.
It’s been wonderful to welcome all of the Room 7 boys back after the Christmas break. Everyone has settled well getting back into routines. This term our IDL topic will be Night and Day. We having been working on numbers to 20 in numeracy and have almost finished learning all of our initial sounds in literacy. It has been a busy first week back!
We hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas holiday! We look forward to seeing everyone back after the break.
Another Busy Week!
Another busy week for everyone in Room 7! We were lucky enough to go along to the cinema at Hamilton Accies on Thursday and watch a Christmas movie and today we all performed in our Christmas Extravaganza. Everyone did a great job up on the stage! We’ve also been busy making crafts for our enterprise which was sold today and we’ve being working hard on some Christmas themed numeracy and literacy activities.
Enjoy looking at the photographs below from our busy week…
What a busy week it has been in Room 7! We are so proud of all of our boys for giving the pantomime a go on Wednesday afternoon. Everyone was able to stay for a different amount of time but they all did fantastic!!
Nativity rehearsals are in full swing so lots of our time this week has been spent singing our songs, practising in the gym hall and making our headbands. We have a few snapshots of our week below. We are looking forward to our trip to the cinema next week.
This Week’s Learning
This week in Room 7 we have been celebrating all things Scottish as part of St Andrew’s Day celebrations. We’ve listened to Scottish music, baked some shortbread and tried some haggis (although not everyone was up for it!). We had a great time at gym on Tuesday playing with balloons and we worked hard on making our Christmas bauble to decorate the gym hall. Enjoy looking at our photos below.
It’s been a busy week in Room 7 even though we have only been in for four days. We have had lots of reading opportunities as part of Book Week Scotland and we’ve been enjoying our role play corner as part of our People Who Help Us topic. Below are some photos from our week.
What Have We Been Learning This Week?
This week we have continued with our People Who Help Us IDL topic and have been learning all about the doctor. We have set up a small doctor’s surgery role play area in class which we have all enjoyed. We have also continued with our hard work on addition and enjoyed some Children In Need activities today. Here are a few snapshots of our week…
This week we made firework biscuits on Monday and have worked hard on our People Who Help Us Topic. We are continuing with our Time To Talk social skills programme and have been learning about our emotions and what they look like, we particularly enjoyed making faces in the mirror to do this! In maths this week we have spent time exploring the water tray and learning the language which goes along with this (empty, full, etc.).
Another busy week had by all!
Our Learning This Wek
This week has been a busy week with lots of Halloween themed activities. We have read Room on the Broom and completed Literacy, Numeracy, Art and Homework activities related to the story. Well done everyone for some fantastic homework once again! Some of the boys chose to dress up on Wednesday…we had a skeleton, Chase, a clown and a monster in Room 7! Everyone enjoyed Halloween themed Purposeful Play activities, especially dooking for apples. Below are a few photos from our busy week:
This Week’s Learning
Another fantastic week for Room 7.

Super Star Learners
What a busy week for everyone in Room 7! We have been painting, walking on sensory tiles and, of course, continuing our hard work on our numbers and letters. We now have an HNC student working in our class on a Thursday and Friday, Miss Foley. She has been busy getting to know the boys and learning all about our class routines. A huge thank you to everyone for their hard work on homework over the last few weeks…everyone is making a great effort! Finally, we would like to wish everyone a fantastic October week holiday and we look forward to seeing all the boys back on Monday 22nd October
Our Learning This Week
This week we have been very busy developing our play skills.

Below are some photos of our week…
It has been a busy few weeks in Room 7. We had our sponsored event last Friday afternoon and we continue to work hard on learning our sounds, working on our Materials topic and practising our writing. Here are a few snapshots of us all hard at work…
What Have We Been Up To This Week?
It’s been another busy week in Room 7. We have continued with our 3 Little Pigs story, been busy learning our ‘s’ sound and have had a great time down in the gym hall. Here are a few snapshots of our week…
The 3 Little Pigs
Today we listened to The 3 Little Pigs story. Afterwards we used the Duplo bricks to build our own houses. We enjoyed the story so much that we pretended to be the Big Bad Wolf and try to blow the houses down!
Here are some photos of us working hard on our numeracy today. We played a ladybird counting game on the Clever Touch and worked hard on matching ladybird numbers at the table.
Last Week’s Learning
Here are some photos of activities we engaged in last week in Room 7.
Thanks to everyone who came along yesterday to Help Your Child Succeed. I mentioned a few websites and have listed them below to use at home for various activities:
This website has a variety of literacy and numeracy activities which your child may enjoy engaging with.
This again has a variety of literacy and numeracy activities but also has activities to support fine motor development, such as the moving targets game.
This is the song we use during tooth brushing time and it plays for the length that the children should brush their teeth.;
This is our alphabet song. It’s not the same as the usual alphabet song but the boys seem to enjoy it.
If there are any other websites which I think will be of use I’ll post them on our page
Our First Few Days
It has been a busy few days in Room 7! Everyone is settling in well to new routines and working really hard on new learning activities. Here a few photos of us all in action.
We have all had a fantastic first day at school! Lots of outdoor play today and getting to know our new classmates.
Our PE days are on a Tuesday and a Wednesday and polo shirts should be worn. Children may change into shorts if they wish.
We will post updates regularly throughout the term.
