  • Buddy Net Task:

I have uploaded a “Buddy Box” net template for you but you can create your own. The idea is that you decorate it with information about your hobbies, personality and favourite subjects at school. You can even write a nice message to welcome your buddy on it and give it to them when you are in Primary 7!

Buddy Box Net

  • Create a Memory Box of your favourite times and stories from Primary 6! You could recycle a cereal box and decorate it. Remember to include all the fun we had at the Science Centre, looking after the Brown Trout fish and our great Footprint Fridays!

 

  • Make a Sundial STEM Task:

This is a great activity for this time of year! Find a nice robust stick and place it upright in the ground – somewhere it can stay sturdy for a while! Once the time hits the hour, place a stone, make a mark or chalk a number to note the position of the sticks shadow at the time! You could mark it as often as you want. For example, every hour, every half hour or maybe even every 15 minutes! Good luck!

 

Week Beginning: 15th of June 2020

Good morning Primary 6! It’s hard to believe we are now in the final weeks of Primary 6 before the Summer Holidays! You have a lot to look forward to next year I’m sure with new roles and responsibilities as Primary 7 pupils!

RE

  • I know that in normal circumstances, you would be preparing for your confirmation and we are all sad that this has been postponed. To reflect on the life of your Saint, make a mind map in your jotter with a sketch of your chosen Saint and information about their life and work.
  • Remember to stop and pray at 3pm! Pray for your own special intentions and for all of your friends and family.

 

STEM – Coding

  • I’ve posted a link below to a fantastic website which allows you to try out coding! I think you will love this! You could start at a beginners stage and move onto a more advanced game in time! I particularly enjoyed the Barbie Vet one!

Easter Message

Hi Primary 6! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your home learning!

I just wanted to leave a little message from Romeo! Maybe you could have a go at making your own poster to display in your window at home!

Easter Tasks

I know that staying at home can be hard boys and girls, so I have posted some optional Easter Tasks to keep you busy over the holidays!

  • As we approach Holy Week, perhaps it would be a nice idea to make your own crosses for Palm Sunday! You could use sticks or small branches from your garden. I have been making crosses out of lollipop sticks with my family this week and we are going to post them to our friends.

 

Easter Tasks:
* Design an Easter Egg and have a competition at home. Let someone in your house pick the winner!
* Jesus on the cross Art Task
What you will need:
Two sheets of A4 paper
Glue
Scissors
Black pen
Task: make a silhouette of three crosses on one sheet of paper and colour them in black.
On the other sheet of paper, design a background. You can glue the crosses onto this sheet of paper! Have a look at the example below.
* Instead of having an Easter Egg hunt why don’t you have a Nature Hunt instead!
*Easter Board Game: you could design an Easter themed board game for your family to play. You could even use some Semana Santa knowledge from last week in your game! Remember to include a set of instructions!
*Bunny Markers: you could make bunny bookmarks or plant markers for your garden!

Have a wonderful Easter and don’t forget to keep smiling and laughing!
