Class Teacher: Ms Kinnon & Mrs Birrell
Hi. We are P6 and here are the things that we use to learn and work together as a team:
• Listening and Talking Skills
• Visible Learning
• GIRFEC Flower
• School Values
• Rights Respecting Charter
• Skills for Learning, Life and Work
• Restorative Conversations
We always try to think about what these mean to us and how they help us to grow and learn.
P6 have worked hard this year to further embed visible learning in our class and across the school. At the start of the year we launched the learner dispositions at our assembly by taking a a journey through space to visit each of the disposition planets. We also created a song and actions to help all pupils and staff remember what each learner disposition means. Visible learning encourages us reflect on our learning. In each lesson we try to think about where we are in our learning, where we are going next and how we are going to get there.
High quality listening and talking underpins all that we do in P6. We use our skills to work together to challenge each other’s thinking, build our ideas and problem solve collaboratively. Our listening and talking rules help us to ‘think out loud’ in order to understand our thinking and share our learning strategies with each other.
P6 are a very talented group of performers. We love to sing, dance act and many of us are learning to play a musical instrument. In January we showcased our skills at the Inverclyde Music Festival.
We are a multilingual class and love to celebrate and learn about our own and other cultures. We are very proud of our progress in learning French, Arabic, Gaelic and Scots.
We continue to build on all of the above and much more in preparation for the transition to P7 in order to be the best role models for all Whinhill boys and girls.
