Primary 6 and PACE Theatre

Our Primary 6 classes worked with PACE Theatre yesterday morning to produce a short anti bullying play which was performed to the P5 year group and our P6 parents.

The children worked extremely hard in the morning to learn actions, lines and stage directions.  The show delivered a strong anti bullying message and encouraged to reach their full potential.

Thank you to all the adults who were able to join us for the performance. It was great to see so many people there. We’d love to hear your comments about the show below.

Thank you to Mrs Williams for organising this excellent experience. ?

Super total raised for STV Children’s Appeal!

A big thank you to all pupils and parents who donated and participated in our ‘Onthank Danceathon’.

We all enjoyed sessions led by the dance coach Claire Adam who has appeared on the reality TV programme “Got to Dance”.

We raised an amazing total of ¬£469.42 for the STV Children’s Appeal 2018!!

No Pens Day in P6A

Primary 6A have had a very productive day during their No Pens Wednesday. The class worked hard and participated fully in talking and listening activities, maths using laptops, drama work portraying John Muir’s life and nature art work where the children studied the leaves, colours, textures to create a new picture.

Joe commented, ‘ Today I liked the fact that we could just put our pencils down and get up instead and be more active in our learning. My favourite bit was using my imagination to create my leaf ladybug.’

Phoebe explained, ‘Sometimes today I wanted to write things down but instead I had to talk and explain myself.’


Dean Castle Rangers to P6

Primary 6 will be working with two Dean Castle Rangers on Tuesday 2nd October and Tuesday 23rd October. In these sessions, the children will participate in tree identification and den building activities at the Foxes area near the school. These activities link into our John Muir Award and the Wilderness Wars novel that we are currently reading in class.

Parents, carers and grandparents are welcome to join us on these sessions. If you can come along then please complete the form below.

Children should wear outdoor clothing to school on these days but have their school uniform in their school bags to change into afterwards. Wellies/boots should be worn also.  Spare socks are always a great idea!

P6K – 9.15 – 10.45
P6A – 11 – 12.30
P6M – 1.30 – 3pm

World of Work

We have all been enjoying learning about ‘Our World of Work’.

We have shared ideas of careers which we think we might enjoy in the future and we have been considering what steps we would need to take to be able to do certain jobs.

Importantly, we have been discussing the strengths and talents we have already and how we can continue to develop these.

We have had lots of fun playing games, participating in roleplay and some of us have even tried to fill in application forms for our dream jobs.

P6K worked with Miss Smith to create a ‘World of Work’ Assembly. Through drama, music and dance they demonstrated that if you are determined and work hard you can achieve your dreams.

The whole school enjoyed the assembly on Monday and today we welcomed parents and relatives to watch.

Well done P6K!

P6A created Nature Palettes

P6A headed out to garden to look at the colours, scents and textures in nature. The children selected natural items and stuck them to their ‘Nature Palette’.

Rhys said, ‘I was surprised by how soft the leaves were.’

Owen shared, ‘When I was looking at the flowers, I saw lavender and it smelt so good!’

Once back in the classroom, Liam interviewed Ellie and they discussed the lesson and heard more about Ellie’s choices for her Nature Palette.¬† Watch the video below.
