Pirie Park Primary School

Respect, Learning, Kindness, Friendship, Trust


Welcome to P6a with Miss Ross and Mrs Nickson 🙂 

Summary of Learning

This term, we will be expanding our skills in multiple areas of the curriculum through our topic, ‘The 1960’s’. We will be developing out note taking skills and using these notes to write our own news reports. We will also be continuing our digital literacy input with Mrs Nickson.

As a class we are doing lots of reading in the classroom and will continue to enjoy a reading café on Fridays. This is where we share and discuss the books we are reading with our friends in P6b. We encourage children to read for enjoyment as much as possible and would welcome your support with this at home.

In Math we are focusing on ‘money’ and using our skills to answer a variety of different money problems. We will also be continuing to build our numeracy skills through the four operations. We practise our times tables regularly in class and would encourage over-learning these at home.

Our topic takes a look at the 1960’s and all the exciting events that happened during that era. Come along to our assembly to see what we have been learning about.
