P6 Learning Log – Week Beginning 16.09.19

It was a great start to the week because we had a Monday holiday!

When we came back to school on the Tuesday, we did Early Intervention, which was all about Internet Safety. We watched a video about a man who was pretending to be someone he wasn’t online, it made me more aware of how careful you have to be.

In PE, we have been playing rugby. This week, we were put into teams and were assigned a country. We did training for our own rugby world cup and started our pre-season by playing other teams and creating our own celebrations.

On Wednesday, we did some imaginative writing, we enjoyed using interesting vocabulary to describe a hideous beast. Check out our blog post about it here.

As part of our focus on the solar system, we watched an informative documentary about the planets. During the afternoon, we were surprised with a yummy space cake! It was delicious! We then spent Friday making posters or leaflets about planets to show off our learning.

We have had a fun week!

P6 Getting Ambitious with their Writing

Today, Primary 6 got started with their work on Big Writing. They were given an extract from a story about a hideous beast to discuss at home and today their task was to continue that story.

They started by brainstorming some interesting examples of vocabulary, connectives, openers and punctuation. Then, they put this into practice by working in pairs to uplevel some boring sentences, making them much more exciting!

We think they did an amazing job, and their hard work paid off, because the final written pieces were of a very high standard! Well done P6!

We have had a very busy week!

In PE, we have been considering what skills an astronaut might need to go into space. Once we decided what they would need to work on, we pretended we work for NASA and, in groups, created fitness games and drills to work on a variety of skills.

Continuing the space theme, we have been learning about the phases of the moon, and are excited to look at the full moon this weekend! On Thursday, we displayed our learning so far about the Earth, sun and moon on book creators, and enjoyed presenting these to everyone.

We have been working really hard in maths this week, learning all about decimals and managing to add and subtract numbers with one decimal point.

We were given our home learning this week, and we now all have a reading book and some activities to do at home, along with spelling, Big Talking and our termly home learning grid. We will also have a weekly Sumdog challenge if we want to practise our maths. More information about home learning can be found here.

P6 Home Learning

We will be organising our home learning differently this year in Primary 6. Your child has been sent home with all the information that you might need, however we have uploaded the documents here in case you would like to refer to them.

We appreciate your ongoing support.

P6 Learning Log – Week Beginning 19.08.19

We have had a very busy week!

We have been learning about our rights and responsibilities. We discussed what responsibilities we have at school and created a class charter to make sure everyone knows how we can respect the rights of everyone. We made jigsaw pieces to put on display so we can make sure we always remember our responsibilities.

In maths, we have been doing lots of chilli challenges, with different levels of spicy to choose from depending on what level of difficulty we need. We have been revising addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

We have been learning about sports in French and discussing what we like to do and play. We have completed some writing tasking about this and can now say what we like and don’t like to do in our spare time.

We are very excited about PE this term. We are learning about rugby because it is the rugby world cup soon. We have been playing games to practice moving in space and defending ourselves. Soon, we will be getting into teams and playing in a tournament. We will all have a different role, like coach or manager.
