In our music lesson last week the boys and girls in P6a got the chance to make music. After making lots of noise they came up with these great sounding musical patterns!
They used lots of different kinds of instruments. I wonder if anyone can correctly identify all of them!
A lady from France came into our class to teach us some more about our French, her name was Mariam . She spent an hour with us talking French! She taught us more about or colours and we all got fake french names to learn. We had to walk around the class, meet people and have a conversation in french(including our fake french name and age.)
We also learnt about France and she said if someone draws France quickly it is the shape of a hexagon (if you draw it on paper.) It was really interesting and I didn’t realise I knew so much french!
I have written a poem and I want to share it with you.
Friends by Shannon Geoghegan
Friends will never let you down,
You know they’ll always be around,
They see your life through thick and thin,
And even if you never win,
Friends will guide you through the dark ways,
And will always be with you through the bright ways,
You may fall out from time to time,
But you’ll be friends that I rhyme,
They know you like the back of their hand,
And will be with you all over the land.
I really like reading because its fun and exciting. The book is Wellington square.
In primary 6 we do outdoor gym every Wednesday. We do rounders and football and other games.For football we do team captains,it is normaly a girl captain and a boy captain.Whatever teacher is taking the football they are the referee and if you do a bad tackle you have to site out for five minutes. For rounders the teachers put us into teams and then we decide who is going to bat and who is going to field.
On Wednesday the 23rd of March primary 6 went into the noisy quiet room 2 to watch a video of Oliver Twist for our Drama. We had to take notes on 2 things: Main Events and Victorian Clues. We had to take along a piece of paper, something to lean on, a pencil and a rubber. After we have finished our notes we are going to write a recount on what happened to Oliver in the movie.
On a Wednesday Miss Brogan, Mrs McMann and Miss Grenfell took a class called cycling proficiency. Some of the primary 6 classes joined. I joined it and it tells you about riding on the road safe. It is only primary 6 classes that can join. To join you need to have a helmet and a lock to lock up your bike at the bike racks. Your bike needs to be in good condition. We learned the start and finish position when you are riding on the road. Next week we will be learning the emergency stop. The cycling proficiency group is on from 3pm till 4pm. A man from the bike shop comes and checks your bike if the brakes are working and other stuff.
This year in primary 6 we have been playing different games. This year we are aloud to play football and rounders. This year we can also play with the other class.For football we choose team captains, the winner of heads and tails picks first.Mr Clark takes turns with Mrs Macman to be the referee .If Mr Clark is the referee Mrs Macman prepares rounders.
I really like cycling proficiency because you learn to signal left and right and how to cycle on the road . We also learn how to start off and stop properly. Here are a few things that we have learned:-
Lifesaver -second check behind right shoulder.
The right pedal goes at 2 o’clock (about 50 degrees around the wheel) so that you start off without any wobbling.
On a wednesday some of the primary sixes have joined cycling proficancy. In the morning we get off our bikes at the gate and we chain them up at the bike racks. Then at the end of school we go into miss cunninghams class and wait for thr teachers to come. Miss Brogan ,Mrs Mcman and Miss Grenfeild. The club is on at 3 until 4. On the first weeek we had to cycle through cones and had to keep our balance then we changed stations and we had a race but it was the slowest person that won.The second week we learned our saftey check we had to look behing our right shoulder then put out our right arm and wave it three times then we looked behind again and the we used our brakes.Then we moved station we had to travle through two lines with out hitting one and we had to pretend one was a car and one line was th kirb. We moved station againg and we done our saftey check and we cycled up and down but before we cycled we had to do th saftey check.
