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¬†‚Äď 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‚Äôs ‚Äď 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

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.

PRIMARY 6 MATHS

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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKCE8ohIBqE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zF3JSnEq7tU

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

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Search.aspx?q=volume

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

1.

2.

3.

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!
