Thank You P6A

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all of P6A for all your hard work and resilience. The past few months have been strange for us all and I am so proud of how well you have all coped with the changes. It has been lovely catching up with you virtually and I am looking forward to catching up with you properly all being well in August.

Have a fantastic summer, relax, have fun and I look forward to seeing you all in person very soon.

Thank you for a fantastic year.

Miss Altman

Thank You Primary 6G!

Hi everyone,

I want to send you all a quick message to say I hope you have a fantastic Summer. I am so lucky that I had such a wonderful class this year and I will treasure our memories together. I am so proud of all my Primary 6G pupils who have shown understanding, patience and resilience during this time. I feel very lucky to have been their teacher.

You are an asset to Bishopton Primary and I have no doubt you will continue to thrive in Primary 7.

I want to thank all the parents/guardians of the children. Having only been at Bishopton since August you have all been incredibly generous, understanding and welcoming. Thank you for all your support and I hope you have a wonderful Summer. You deserve it!

Have fun and enjoy this time.

Take care,

Miss Gemmell 🙂

Bishopton Pedal 2020

Today should have been the start of the Big Pedal walking/cycling/scooting national competition that we all enjoy so much each year.

This year we’re turning it into the Bishopton Pedal.

As part of your daily exercise, we would like you to try to cycle, scoot or walk every day for the next 2 weeks.  Please make sure that bikes and scooters are safe for you to use and that you wear helmets on your bike just as you would if you were at school. If you do not have access to a safe place to cycle, scoot or walk please just carry on with all the other daily fitness ideas provided by your teachers.

Remember all your family are welcome to join in too.

Be safe and have fun.


Daily Tasks for Friday 27/03/2020

P.E. with Joe Wicks- He will be live from 9:00am on this link. Please wear appropriate clothes for P.E. (You will be roasting in that onsie!)
Spelling Quiz- Please ask someone at home to quiz you on your spelling words. Ask them to use it in a sentence.
RME Hinduism Comprehension- Remember to highlight key words in the question and link that to the passage.
HWB Make someones day- A nice way to end our first week in digital space.
Week 1 Maths Roundup Quiz- Checking if there are any bits we need to go over.
Also Project- I’m going to extend the deadline for this until next Tuesday to help folk who were having technical difficulties. It was meant to let you explore different parts of the virtual classroom.


Hello everyone, today we are continuing to look at our volume and capacity topic.  Have a look at the video linked below.

After watching the videos you could give some of the Volume games on Topmarks a go. These will help to develop your understanding.

Can you find 3 items around the house and list the volume/capacity of the items ?




If you manage this you could try the mild OR hot pages that are attached. This will look at a variety of measurements we have covered. Some of this sheet requires you to match up items, you could use your jotter to do this or if you are doing it in a word document just put the measurements next to each other.  Any issues then please let me know!


Daily tasks 26/03/2020

Good morning. P6M Bishopton Primary 2019_20 I hope you are keeping well. Remember to get out and play in the garden when you can as it is important to stay active. This is why I have started your day with a work out every day.

The tasks for today are:

  • P.E- Again I have asked Joe Wicks to step in and do a little workout. He will be live from 9:00am on this link. Please wear appropriate clothes for P.E. (You will be roasting in that onsie!)

If the link doesn’t work then search for youtube and from there look for the body coach tv.

  • Starter Spelling– Please complete an active spelling task.
  • Literacy– Back by popular demand is the inspired by story. This is your chance to impress with how many grammar tricks you can use to excite readers. There is no maximum for words but I think that you will need at least 200 words to develop your story.
  • Maths- A little recap on volume, measure and weight today.
  • Project- Day Four is creating your powerpoint to celebrate your chosen topic. Double check the assignment for details.

Spelling 26/03/2020


Hola Spellers,


Your spelling revision for this week is a return of two end patterns. -ate and -ible.


Remember if you are unsure of what the words means please check in a dictionary.


Hibernate, complicate, certificate, chocolate,


invincible, convertible, possible, gullible.


Thursday is time to practice your words. Look, cover, write and check please.


And then


Choose one activity to complete from the menu. Upload the activity evidence to this assignment or put it into the literacy part of your class notebook.

The Inspired By Story!

story writing checklist


You are so lucky!


I am so excited for this task as I know just how good a group of Primary 6 writers that we are blessed with.

I’m taking the shackles off. I’m only going to give you one instruction.


  1. Write from something that you know!

What I mean by this is think of the stories that you have grown up with. We are lucky to be surrounded by quality literature in Bishopton Primary School. Take elements of a story that you love and see if you can create a new tale.

It could be the missing pages from the Diary of a Wimpy Kids, or forgotten tales from Hogswarts, or even Olaf vs Summer (aka Not So Frozen!).


Now this can be typed or handwritten. We only ask that you remember all of those previous writing lessons.

Can I see paragraphs, hyperbole, metaphors, alliteration, personification, correct punctuation… don’t waste an opportunity to add exuberant, vibrant vocabulary.


Really enjoy the process of creating something.


A very jealous,


Mr M


p.s your teachers are on hand to support your creations so run those ideas past us and ask if you need reminding of anything.
