Home Learning

Hello everyone 🙂

Tomorrow we will start our home learning journey. Class teachers will be posting a variety of assignments on each class page. Remember it is up to you what order you complete these activities.

There will be a mix of numeracy/mathematics, literacy, health & well-being & IDL activities set. You can also use the yellow jotter that was sent home for any work you complete.

You do not have to be on the page from 9-3:15 but you should manage your time effectively. The class teachers will be available to help you throughout the day. A quick register will be taken and you can respond with a simple ‘hi’ to show your teacher you are online today- again there is no set time for this.

We are all learning this together. Looking forward to starting our home learning journey tomorrow. Remember if you have any questions then just ask.

Rangoli (not a pasta!)

Bonjour artists,

Today we travel to exotic India to explore patterns and colour.

A Rangoli is a colourful design drawn on the floor near the entrance to a house to welcome guests. During Diwali, Hindus draw bright Rangoli patterns on the floor by the front door to encourage the goddess Lakshmi to enter their homes. Rangoli can be square, rectangular or circular. They are traditionally drawn using rice grains, flour, sand or chalk (but please don’t use the flour/ rice or sand).

Rangoli designs are usually taken from nature. Peacocks, swans, mango and flowers are popular. Rangoli come in all shapes and sizes!


Your task is to create your own Rangoli pattern to add a little colour and interesting design to your house. The key is not to rush. Use pencils to plan out on paper the design you want. I have attached a few templates that can be printed. or you could go online and research your own. Try looking around the house for inspiration.

Post a picture of your design in the assignment tab.


Au Revoir,


Mr M


Garden/ House Angle Hunt

Good day hunters,


With the weather improving I thought is would be a great idea for you to show off your ICT/ Maths skills at the same time. Similar to work previously done in class I would like you to show me examples that you can find of each of the different types of angles.


Acute- Aww it’s so small and dainty, remember that the range of this wee angle is between 1 and 89 degrees.

Right- The famous one who even had a triangle named after him. So cool he only is at 90 degrees.

Obtuse- A little awkward this angle is somewhere in between being right and being a straight line. The range is 91 to 179 degrees.

Straight- Never getting into trouble and keeping itself on the straight and narrow. 180 degrees and only 180 degrees.

Reflex- The biggest range of any angle but weirdly the least spoken about. Help reflexes PR problem and find some angles between 181 and 359 degrees.

Full turn- The whole turn. Easy to find if you know your shapes. 360 degrees.


Use a digital devise to take pictures and then edit the picture to draw on and name the angle.


Post the pictures to the assignment if you can. If not you can always add them to your class notebook under maths or pop them into files.


As in school remember to put your name on your work!


Good luck,

Primary 6G

Hi everyone 🙂

I just wanted to send a quick message out to everyone today!

All the children have been set up with their glow email and password and have been working on using teams. Please remember that this is new to us all and we only ask that you try your best. I know that everyone has different circumstances.  I will try my best to make all activities and tasks set as clear as possible.

I know this may all be overwhelming for the children and I want them to know that I am available to them during this time. I hope they know they can contact me if they are feeling overwhelmed or if they need any help with anything!

A special thank you to all the parents and families this year. You have been extremely kind to me since starting at Bishopton.  I want to let you know I will be trying my best to support your children during this time.

To all of the children in Primary 6G.  You have been an amazing class to teach this year. I am so proud of all of you and I hope you continue to work hard.  I want to thank you all for the amazing memories so far. I hope we can continue our time together very shortly.

Remember I am still here for you.

I hope to see you all soon.

Take care,

Miss Gemmell x

Big Pedal 2020

Good news !  The Big Pedal cycling, scooting and walking challenge is back.  From Wednesday 22nd April to Tuesday 5th May we would like you to bring your bike or scooter to school every day. You will get the chance to bike or scoot with your classmates and your teacher. If you can’t bring a bike or scooter, you can walk and that will count too.  For more information have a look at the Big Pedal website.

This is a national competition to see how many journeys we can make biking, scooting or walking. Please ask an adult to check that your bike or scooter is in good working order. You may bring a lock to use but you must be responsible for the key.

Rules – all cyclists MUST wear a helmet

– no cycling or scooting in the playground ( or the ashy path) unless you are with your teacher (on the way in/out, playtime and lunchtime)

We have taken part in this challenge for the last few years and it is always good fun.  We are usually in the top 10. Let’s try for top 3 this year!

Happy cycling/scooting/walking

Mrs Ferguson
