 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,

Mr Corkin


Welcome to Year 7!laugh


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!
