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!
