Eventful Short Week – Creativity Challenge

P6a have been very busy this week! We had our firsr visit to Mearns Primary to begin our creativity challenge. The design brief has been set. It involves many different components. We have to design and make an outfit and accessories which has a given science focus, select music and write a script for our fashion show and produce a movie of the process! We will continue this throughout the month. Keep an eye out for photos from the the show!

Bikeability

With two bikeability sessions under our belts P6a is ready to venture out on to the road. We will be doing this the week after next, as the class are not in school on Tuesday (it is an in service day for staff). We are learning how to travel safely on our bikes and how to indicate our intentions to other road users.

Keep studying your bikeability books as there will be an assessment of your road rules soon!

Election Fever

This week was Ballot Week in P6a. The candidates had written their manifestoes, presented them and produced their own election marketing material such as rosettes and posters, before a final question and answer session with the electorate. The admin team made a ballot box, polling station and voting slips for the big day. 

Heather was successful in winning the election and was named Class President Heather. She won following a campaign which focused on allowing the class to sit with friends until Easter, ensuring a fairer allocation of the p6 muga time for all the class, maintaining the class pencil drawer and a pledge to set up a class forum for discussing any issues which arise over a week.

Well done to Heather, her campaign manager Abby, all involved in the campaigns and the election preparation!

Sumdog

Congratulations P6a! You finished this week in 8th place overall, out of 111 East Renfrewshire classes that competed and qualified to enter . Your average score was 850! Wonderful work!

Abby’s final position was actually joint 7th place with three pupils from other schools, with 985/1000. Great work, Abby! Tom was joint 14th in the authority and Cameron was joint 42nd with 981 and 954, respectively. As you can see the competition was stiff! There were 2739 pupils competing so this is quite an achievement!

Next time we compete it will be a national contest with 1450 classes currently entered. As always there are 1000 questions, aimed at your level, and accuracy is key. If we all answer our 1000 questions we can climb even further up the table as the score is a class average for correct calculations, no matter how many you answerred. Last year Mrs Horne and Mrs Jamieson’s class won access to all areas of sumdog, not only maths, which was an exciting tool for their class to use while learning in P7.

Mark the 3rd – 9th of May in your diaries!

Sumdog Update

We are now in 8th position in the East Renfrrewshire contest.  Congratulations to Abby who has completed 1000 questions and is currently in 8th position overall with 985 correct answers! There is still time to climb up the leaderboard. The contest ends at 8pm tonight. Good luck!
