Lucky Dip, #supersentencestackers, Jane Considine’s lesson

Technical problems this morning meant that the live stream didn’t happen, so here is the recorded lesson for Lucky Dip.

Jane’s “lenses” for this lesson are checking (sound), the passive voice and using adverbs.

Have a go and don’t worry about anything other than using the FANTASTIC’s.

Primary 6 Home Learning Tasks for Thursday 26th March<p><a href=””>via GIPHY</a></p>

Good Morning P 6

Today will be a bit of a change for us, it has proved to be tricky and confusing trying to access Classroom and Teams, so today all your tasks will be posted here and you can feedback to me via email or on the school Facebook and twitter pages.


We have a busy day ahead, so please try to attempt as many tasks as possible. I know that Mrs MacDonald has spoken to many of your parents and they are going to be looking out for your work being posted.

Mrs MacDonald spoke to you all about having a routine in place and what better way to start the day than with a bit of P.E.

Task 1      Joe Wicks Morning PE class at 9 am

 Task 2    We didn’t get a chance to see Jane Considine  visit the school on our last day, however she has been facilitating writing every morning. At 9.45 am she will introduce a video and a “chunk” for you to write about, look for her on twitter under #supersentencestacker,  see the link below.

The video for today is here;

Watch the video and choose your “chunk” to write about.


Follow her live lesson on YouTube supersentencestackers. Jane will model how she creates her sentences and you have a go after. I’m excited to see what you are able to create, remember it is just one chunk of the video.

Task 3    5 a day in Spanish

Get your hips and legs moving again learning some Spanish vocabulary.

Task 4   Maths starter

A two stage starter for you, yellow is simple, challenge yourself with the blue.

Next complete Information handling, exercise 2 questions 1-4. These questions move on from the data in displayed in tables to display in a bar chart.

Task 5, use the link below to the “hour of code” and create your own dance party.

Remember if you have any questions message me on my email and don’t forget to post or message your work.

Have a great day and keep safe,

Mrs Coyle
