Afternoon boys and girls,
If you are reading the Street Child novel, task 2 is incorrect for today's reading lesson. Please write a diary account as Jim describing your feelings at this moment of the story. Use lots of ideas from the text to support your writing. It should be full of description and emotions.
Home Learning Week Beginning 18th January, 2021
So, here we go again boys and girls... another week of home-learning with the best teachers around! Remember, that a your parents and guardians are also trying to work so try to be independent, mature and do not be afraid to use a safe Internet search engine should you get stuck (with parental permission of course!)
I have uploaded some videos and games below to accompany your lessons for this week. Please use these on top of your worksheets or you may need to use them for support with some of your home lessons.
Have an awesome week boys and girls, be good, stay safe and we can do this. Should you want to forward any photos please do so via email and remember to get your parents/guardians to give permission to display the photos on class page of school website.
Stay safe and my kindest regards,
Mr Corkin ☺️

Home-schooling WB: 11th January, 2021
Afternoon boys and girls,
Hopefully, your first morning of home-schooling this week has not been too bad... and you have been super-independent, not stressing your parents/ guardians too much.
Keep your eyes on the P7 class page for more updates, videos, games and support for you during home-schooling.
Take care, stay safe and be good,
Work for week commencing 11th January, 2021
BACK TO HOME-SCHOOLING...
Dear P7 pupils, parents and guardians,
I would like to thank all of those parents and children who came to collect their work-packs yesterday and today. If, however, you have not managed to collect yours, please come to school tomorrow and collect it as you really want to keep up with what work the other children are doing, plus I promise that it is not too bad at all...
These packs should be returned and new packs collected on Monday 11th during the hours stated within Mrs Williamson's letter that was posted via the school app.
I can only thank you for your dedication, patience and hard work during these extremely difficult and challenging times.
To finish, I will be posting videos and examples of work on here throughout the home-schooling period so please keep an eye on this page over the upcoming weeks.
Do you love learning about flags, capital cities and countries?
Check out these cool games... learn your countries, continents and cities plus many more cool things!

We really appreciate the time and effort of sending us photographs of the children working hard at home during Lockdown
However, could we please ask you to attach a maximum of three photographs per email to avoid it not reaching us because of the capacity of the attachments.
If, for some reason, you do not hear back from me for more that 48 hours, please re-send the email as I would hate it if parents were to think that I was not responding to an email!
My kindest regards and thanks,
Mr S Corkin
Thank you to all of those parents who have forwarded photographs of their children working hard at home with schoolwork or extra-curricular activities... they're great!
Can I ask you to use only your child's first name on any sheets or activities that you are sending me. Also, when emailing these over, please advise me if you give permission for your child's work to be posted on to the school website!
I can't remember how to do multiplication or division calculations...
Don't worry, watch the videos below for some help!
Evening boys and girls- please find below some great practical, fun STEM activities. STEM means 'Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics'. I have used a lot of the ideas at home with Charlie and Esmee, and they had great fun! Some are easier to organise than others so choose ones that are not going to give your mums and dads too much of a headache!
Numeracy Games and Activities:
Dear Parents, Guardians, Boys and Girls,
RE: Bug Club Reading
I have been having a browse through some of the children's answers to their BUGs where the children have to type in an answer to a specific question related to their book, and it is evident that the children are not reading the books properly as their answers very often lack depth or are not reflective of what the question is asking them to do.
Please read the books at a pace where you can take the main points from the text to help you answer the questions properly.
Thank you for your support and take care,
Welcome to Year 7!
A very warm welcome to you from all in Year 7 at Dickson Primary School!
Within Year 7, we want the children to be happy, safe and become life-long learners, and with the enriched, differentiated and stimulating curriculum, your child has the opportunity to do this.
The current staff within P7 are Mr Corkin, Mrs Holmes and Mrs Wells.
This year, your child will be engaged in a range of exciting, broad, innovative activities that will give them the opportunity to work to their full potential.
Within Numeracy we will embed skills within Place Value; learn more about the complex world of Calculations including Problem Solving and cover a range of intentions in Shape and Space, Information Handling and Measures...
In Literacy, the children will improve on their knowledge of sentence structure while learning about how to use commas and other more advanced punctuation correctly. We will study a range of different Fiction and Non-Fiction texts, and the children will have a go at writing their very own versions of the texts. Should be fun!
Our topic this term is the fateful tragedy of 'The Titanic'... The children love this topic, and it always engages all children where they can produce excellent pieces of work from right across the curriculum, from Literacy to Art!
Along with a multitiude of other activities, this is just a snap-shot of the fun, happy and enriched learning that goes on within the Year 7 classroom!
We look forward to meeting you all throughout the year!
Mr Corkin and the P7 staff!
PE days in P7 are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Swimming is on a Wednesday- if your child cannot take part in either PE or Swimming, a note must be sent in to school.
All monies sent into school must be sent, on a Monday, in the money wallets provided.
Thank you for your support and cooperation.
