P6S have had another busy month!
This month we have been learning lots about Scotland, in particular learning about our national bard Robert Burns. We went to visit the Wellwood Centre in Irvine through Irvine Burns club and really got an insight into his the life of Burns and what he did whilst living in Irvine.
In literacy, we have been studying poetry. We have been learning about and writing different types of poetry such as haiku, kennings and cinquain poems. We had a school poetry recital competition which Katie won reciting the poem A Red Red Rose. P6 were also really lucky to be invited to attend the Burns Supper hosted by Primary 7.
In maths, we have been learning about different types of triangles and their properties. We have also been developing our knowledge of time via use of timetables.
P6S have had a busy start to the New Year!
In literacy, we have been practicing the Burns poem ‘A Red Red Rose’ in preparation for the school Burns competition. We have been developing our knowledge of Scots language through translation of Scots rhymes and poems.
In numeracy, we have been further developing our knowledge of time through calculation of time duration and studying of timetables. We have been developing our problem-solving skills via practical activities such as use of technology and jigsaws.

We linked our Titanic topic into science lessons and investigated whether materials floated or sunk and which were waterproof or not.
We were also made boats using recycled junk materials and investigated if they stayed afloat or not.
Primary 6 have had a busy month. We started out new topic learning all about the Titanic. In literacy, we have been investigating sources to decide who we feel was to blame for its sinking! In numeracy, we have been developing our knowledge of time and measure. We had lots of fun estimating and measuring using different containers. In personalisation and choice, we made boats out of paper and investigated whether or not they would sink or float! We had lots of fun doing active music – keeping and maintaining a rhythm to music.
