Big Pedal 2021

Sustrans Big Pedal - Sustrans.org.ukThis year, as always, the school will be taking part in the Big Pedal, the Sustrans national competition to get everyone moving – cycling, scooting and walking.

Below you will find a video and information sheet.

This year will be a little bit different as we are asking children to bring their bike or scooter on alternate days.  Please see the timetable below for your child’s days.

Date Classes
Mon 19th April P2,P5,P6,P7
Tues 20th April P1,P3 and P4
Wed 21st April P2,P5,P6,P7
Thurs 22nd April P1,P3 and P4
Fri 23rd April P2,P5,P6,P7
Mon 26th April P1,P3 and P4
Tues 27th April P2,P5,P6,P7
Wed 28th April P1,P3 and P4
Thur 29th April P2,P5,P6,P7
Fri 30th April P1,P3 and P4

There are only a few simple rules –

all children must wear a helmet on a bike

bikes and scooters should be wheeled through the playground on the way in and out of school and on the ashy path.

Parents and younger siblings are welcome to join in the challenge.

Every child will get the chance to cycle or scoot with their friends in the playground during the day.

We would ask that you check over bikes and scooters to make sure they are safe to use, especially if they haven’t been used for a while.

Please don’t worry if your child is unable to bring their bike or scooter on any of their days.  Walking counts too!

We are all looking forward to the Big Pedal.  It should be lots of fun.

Online Learning 26. 01.21

Good afternoon P6,

We hope you and your families are all keeping safe and well. Times are challenging at the moment for all of us and we wanted to say how proud we are of you for adapting to online lessons again.

As we are in the middle of Primary 6 the expectations differ from last lockdown and new learning is taking place. Lessons have been pre-recorded to support your understanding, as it would be in class. We are noticing that some of these lessons are not being viewed online and work is not being completed correctly or handed in without any work. Could you please make sure that you are following all instructions, watching the pre-recorded lessons and if you have any questions you can ask us in our teams chat or through email. Your work should also be uploaded into your assignment area before handing in. If this is not working you can email your work to us. We understand that assignments may not always load first time and ask that you try again or ask us and we can send you another link.

Your Daily Task post will let you know what lessons you have to complete each day just as you would in school.

If you have any questions please let us know that is what we are here for!

Thank you

Miss Altman, Miss Gemmell and Mr Morrison

Optional Outdoor Learning Cards

Outdoor learning cards

Welcome back!

With everything being a little different we thought it might be good to give you a reason to take a break. It helps you now and again to step away from the screen and to get out and about in your local area. With this in mind we have set up 16 cards across Bishopton and Dargavel for you to spot when you are out playing or going for a walk. If you find one don’t keep it to yourself; make sure and share where it is with everyone else. There are challenges/ stories/ poems and facts on them.

This is an optional activity and if you don’t want to do any of the suggestions on the card then that is ok. They are simply an excuse to get you out exploring everything our beautiful village has to offer. You may even learn a little Scots along the way.

Happy hunting,

Team Bishopton

Primary 6 Home Learning.

Happy New Year Primary 6!

We hope you had a wonderful holiday. We will be starting our online learning on Monday 11th January 2021. We are looking forward to hearing from you all. 😊

While we are trying to keep our days as close to a regular school day as possible, we understand that everyone has different circumstances. All we want is for you to try your best. If you need any help, let your teachers know.

Here is a little rundown of how we would like our home learning to go:

  • Every day you should respond in the Morning postbefore starting any work. This will let us keep a register.
  • We will also have a Daily Task postwhere you will find the tasks for that day.
  • We will have a Pupil of the Day postwhere you can leave a compliment for your friend.
  • We will have a Team meetingevery Monday and Thursday at 09:30am
  • Assignments– Please upload your work to the assignments so we can give you feedback directly.
  • Daily Tasks– Every day you will have Literacy (spelling and at least one other task), Numeracy and Maths (mental and one main task), Health and Well-Being (Pupil of the Day, daily fitness or PATHS) or another curricular area. (topic, art, music)

We plan to post the tasks for each day the night before on Teams. This will hopefully help you plan how your day will go. In the daily post we will detail how the learning will be delivered. This may be via a recorded PowerPoint, a link to an online lesson, videos, games etc. Please do not worry if you cannot make these lessons, they will be recorded and posted afterwards.

A rough timetable is attached at the bottom of this post, you can adapt this to suit your own circumstances. If you, or your grown-ups, are finding it difficult to balance the online learning with life at home, take a break and come back to it when you can. All we ask is that you try your best. 😊

Enjoy your weekend!

Miss Gemmell, Miss Altman & Mr Morrison

P6 Homework Letter and Information

 

Welcome to Primary Six               

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We hope you have had a lovely summer. It is lovely to have the children back to school and ready to start Primary 6. We will be starting homework from Monday 31st August.

If you would like you can download a PDF copy of the homework letter – Primary 6 Homework Letter

Please visit the class blogs at:

P6AG – https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/re/primary6bps/category/primary-6a-g/

P6M – https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/re/primary6bps/category/primary-6m/

This year the children will have a variety of homework tasks. The homework will be posted on the blog every week so you can check what is expected of your child. We are not using a Homework Diary this year but on a Monday the tasks are introduced and explained. As much as possible we would like the spelling homework to be uploaded to Teams or emailed to the class teacher. Please do not allow your child to become upset/distressed about homework. If we can provide you with any advice or help to support your child with their work, please do not hesitate to get in touch. All homework will be issued on a Monday and is due on a Friday, unless otherwise stated.

Spelling – All pupils will have a weekly spelling rule to focus on.  Each child will be given 8 words which follow the spelling rule and 4 commons words each week.  You will find these in the files section on the blog for each term and we will also post an assignment each week with the spelling rule.  Your child should use the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check method and write six sentences using their spelling rule. To help them focus on the spelling, they should underline the spelling and common words they have used. Finally, to encourage self-assessment they should check their work for any quick fixes .e.g. missing capital letters or punctuation. We are continuing using the Wraparound Spelling method where your child should record any shoot words they can think of.

Maths – Homework will be issued as above. Maths homework will be added to our Teams assignment area in a Chilli Challenge style, this should be completed online and handed in when completed. We may also upload specific worksheets to support what we are learning in class. Children, on occasions may be set SumDog challenges.

Reading – Children are encouraged to read for a minimum of 10 minutes a night across a variety of genre. When reading with your child please use the 3 P’s – Pause, Prompt and Praise if they are unable to read a word. Another strategy you could use is the Three Sharings: 1. What are your likes/dislikes about the book? 2. What are your puzzles/questions about the book? 3. Can you find any connections in the book? Does it remind you of anything in your lfe or a book or film/TV you have seen?

Other curricular areas – As the topics develop, homework may be issued to accompany learning from class.

As many of the homework activities will require access to the internet, we would be grateful if you could let us know if there will be any problems with your child using a computer. It will be possible for paper-based exercises to be given. However, to reduce items being brought back and forwards from school, we will try to use Teams.

Throughout the year, if you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Thank you,

Miss Altman, Miss Gemmell and Mr Morrison

P6 Homework Information

Dear Parents/carers,

We will be starting homework on Monday 31st August. We will post a Homework letter on the blog to explain the P6 routines but we will not send a paper copy home as we are trying to minimise paper and resources travelling between school and home.

As a result of this our homework tasks will be uploaded onto teams. Every spelling task and maths task will show as an assignment and this is where photos of your child’s work should be attached. We will go over this with your child in school but it is the same procedure as they did during lock down. If you have no access to the internet or a device to use, please let us know so we can work around this.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Miss Altman, Miss Gemmell and Mr Morrison
