First Week Back P6M

Hello P6M,

It has been a good first week back at school. I have enjoyed getting to know you all and we are looking forward to the year ahead.

Our focus over the next few weeks will be mainly; maths, literacy and health and well being.  We will have PE everyday apart from a Tuesday. Please come prepared for all weathers and with suitable clothing for the field and pitch.

Have a nice and relaxing weekend.

Mr Morrison

Personal Project

Due March 27, 2020 11:59 PM


Good morning class,


We have been faced with a challenge like no other. I feel that we have been preparing for this and I am confident in each and every one of you. We have to create an entirely new classroom in a largely virtual space and with this in mind I am going to give you a series of linked tasks that will allow you to get used to this new space.


We found that you are more excited by a project if you have some level of choice, so I am giving you only one directive on choosing the topic of your project. This must be on something that makes you happy. Share with the class something that brings you joy in the hope that your enthusiasm and hard work will let someone else appreciate it.


I would ask that, where possible, you stick to the timeline I am giving you and strive to get the most you can out of each part of the process.


Monday: Choose the topic of your personal project. Remember it must be something that makes you happy when you think about it. Once you have chosen this then you can put together a mood board.

Open up a word document and fill it with pictures that link to your chosen topic. These will come in handy later so make sure to fill the page.

Add a brief three/ four sentence paragraph explaining what your topic is and why you choose it. Maybe say why it makes you happy.

Hand this in on the assignment page by uploading the document there.


Tuesday: Compose a poem about your chosen subject.

Make sure to choose your words carefully. I’m looking for up levelled vocabulary.

Thesaurus may be required.

Try to express with your words the feeling of joy that inspired you to choose this subject.

These poems are to by uploaded to the FILES tab inside the poetry folder there. Try dragging your poem pic/ document from your desktop to the folder.


Wednesday: Gather information for a presentation. I would like you to use your class notebook to store the information. Remember that you already have a whole bunch of photos from Mondays task.


Thursday & Friday: Time to put together a powerpoint presentation on your chosen subject.

Think about transitions, colour theory and not overloading slides. 4 to 5 key points on any given slide. 2 to 4 pictures. The poem and the mood board should help you in this editing process. This should be uploaded to the assignment page when completed.


This should hopefully help you to navigate with my help around the Teams Classroom.


All questions welcome. Use the Teams post board, chat and email to enquire about anything.


On you go,


Mr M


Maths task 23/03/2020

Due today at 11:59 PM


L.O To understand and convert units of weight.

Measuring Weight


Hello Mathstronaughts,


See if you can click on the link to watch a quick video on where to find units of measure in the house.

Warm up your maths brain by having a look at the attached power point.

Remember: to multiply by 1000 then all digits move 3 columns to the left. 7.4 multiplied by 1000 = 7400

to divide by 1000 then all digits move 3 columns to the right. 7400 divided by 1000 = 7.400 or 7.4


Have a go at the worksheet attached. REMEMBER TO LOOK AT THE EXAMPLES!


Happy calculating,


Mr M

All of these will be going on the Blog as well just in case of any internet issues.

If you have any problems then ask via the general post board/ chat/ school blog or email. First of can you practice tagging me in the reply section of this post. Use @Mr Morrison “got it”. This will let me know who is here.


Your daily tasks for today are as follows:

  1. Spelling (It is Monday morning after all). We will be revising words from the beginning of the year. Remember to stretch out the sounds and look at the syllables.
  2. Maths…weight for it… is weight conversions. Part of this task involves you hunting for g and kg on food packaging. Please leave cupboards as tidy as you find them or tidier.
  3. It is an illustrator task. As it is a nice day you could always complete this outside in the garden. Remember to read at least 15 to 30 mins before starting the task.

You also have a personal project to start. Look carefully at the instructions and complete the part for Monday. This project will be due on Friday 27th, March, 2020.

P6M Homework 26/08/19

Welcome back!

This is the first homework of the year so we are focusing on our new spelling homework. Reading books will be assigned in class this week, to be sent home next week but if the children could note down any books they are independently reading at home at the back of their homework jotter. Math homework will also start next week to allow the children to focus on their spelling work.


This week we have been looking at words that have either –age or -ege. Each child has written in their jotters what is expected over the week to practice their words. We are also using Highland Spelling in class and pupils are encouraged to find the root of the word and as many shoot words as possible.

Any questions please do not hesitate to ask.


Mr Morrison
