Virtual Sharing Learning Information Event

Dear Families,

At this time of year we would usually welcome our parents into the school for an Information Evening. Unfortunately, due to ongoing health and safety measures, in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this isn’t possible.

Your child’s teacher has instead created a short video introducing themselves and outlining key information regarding the class, curriculum and school day. This video is available by clicking the following link:













We also have a very active twitter (@sunnyside_ps) and website ( where you can keep up with your child’s learning via our class blogs, weekly tweets and regular newsletters.

If you have any enquiries please do not hesitate to contact us via phone (01259 452319) or email (

Thank you for your continuing support.

This week in P5/6S

This week in P5/6S we have had a very creative last week of term.

Over the last couple of weeks, we have been working on writing menus in our French lessons. This week we made woven placemats, decorated plates and learned how to sew aprons, in order to create our very own French cafe in class. Miss Steel was really impressed with everyone’s sewing skills and perseverance in making their own aprons, including having to thread needles!

In our class cafe we  tasted some French foods and practised our French vocabulary – everyone enjoyed this a lot.

Wishing you all a wonderful summer.

This week in P5/6S

This week in P5/6S we have had a fun, calm and relaxing week.

In Literacy we are making our own robot characters and creating stories about them. (Mac)

In Numeracy we did text books on division. (Jamie) We practised using the written ‘bus-stop’ method to solve division problems.

In P.E we had an outdoor sports day – we also had an extra P.E lesson and in that we did throwing and catching games (todge-ball with rugby balls instead of round balls). I enjoy mush ball which is a mix of regular balls and different balls. (Sophie-Leigh)

In I.D.L/art we made collages of Scottish landscapes (Callum). We did it with paint and tissue paper from different magazines and catalogues. It was amazingly awesome (it did take ages though).

In Health and Wellbeing we have been learning about consent (Jamie). Consent is A LOT bigger than I thought to be honest and I know now to ask people if I have their consent.

Have a lovely day/weekend all!

Hope to see you all soon and good luck in your new classes after summer.

This week in P5/6S

We have had a very enjoyable but busy week in P5/6S.

In Literacy we have been learning more about punctuation and all the different ways to use a comma correctly. We also practised our spelling rules and learnt about creating a character. We invented our own robot characters inspired by the story ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes. We discussed how the author had used repetition, similes, personification, onomatopoeia and adjectives within their writing to give details and provide impact.

In Numeracy we continued practising our division skills by playing dice games to create number sentences. We also used our measuring skills as part of our Human Body topic to estimate and measure the size of body parts. Did you know the small intestine is approximately 7 metres long?

We have enjoyed PE with Miss Clarkson this week and we have been taking part in team games.

In IDL we have made models of skeleton ribcages and learnt about the composition of blood and how the stomach breaks down food through class experiments – these involved plastic bags, crackers, lemonade, cereal, marshmallows, water and food colouring! We also located where all the major organs are in the body.

In French we created our own French menu to practise using our French vocabulary. Everyone enjoyed creating their own individual menus with their favourite foods.

Have a lovely weekend.
