P6 Learning Log – Week Beginning 09.09.19

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.

Since the weather has been nice we have been doing a lot of sports like rounders. In rounders there are two teams, one is the team who bats and the other team are fielders. The bowler throws the ball to the batter who hits it and the fielders have to try to catch it.

On Tuesday we had a STEM workshop with Eileen from Fife College. We had a budget to buy materials with, and had to make something that would protect an egg when dropped from a height. It was difficult but fun, and we worked hard to improve our communication and creative skills.

In maths we have been learning about measurement, and have enjoyed measuring and weighing things around the classroom, and thinking of creative ways we could measure zoo animals!

We also had the last day of our co-operative games workshop on Thursday. We have been discussing how to manage our emotions and playing games to develop our resilience and teamwork.

We also learnt about cellos, and some of us went to workshops to see if we wanted to learn to play with cello next year. We enjoyed listening to lots of different genres of music and considering what emotions music can make us feel.

Finally, we would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who donated money to the WWF at our assembly. We raised a phenomenal £155, which we used to adopt another three animals: an elephant, a dolphin and a jaguar.

Stop Motion Animations

Last week, we taught everyone in Primary 5 how to create stop motion animations using the ‘Stop Motion’ app on the school iPads. We had a task to create an animation about all the causes of animal endangerment. We could choose how we did it; drawing on a whiteboard, using toys or acting it out. It was great, engaging and everyone enjoyed it!

The next day we made another stop motion animation but this time it was about our highlights of Primary 5. Most people chose to do the zoo trip and animal adoption. We also added sound so it was more realistic. Some people managed to get the pictures to go so quickly and smoothly that it really looked like a video!

Everyone got to show their own stop motion animations on the Apple TVs and all of them were great!
