We are now at the end of our Changes Unit and the children will take part in a Reflection Week. The is the week when the children have the opportunity to look back over their learning and feel so proud of all the new knowledge, skills and understanding they have acquired. To help with this the children will be partnering up with Mile Post 3 children to share their personal timelines with the P6 class and the P7 children are going to coach the P1 to help extend their knowledge of symmetry using butterfly symmetrical patterning. 
This week the Exit Point for the P1 will be a class assembly performed to the whole school and parents on Friday 19th at 08:40  All of the learning throughout the Changes Unit will support the children with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need for this Exit Point. 

We will also send home a Summary Reflection Report of your child's learning over the course of their changes unit. The report will be sent out at the end of our reflection week. 

In addition, the children will reflect on all the Personal Qualities they have investigated so far and read the Personal Quality books they have been exploring during each weeks focus.
