Primary 6 are continuing to learn about ‘The Industrial Revolution’. This week we will be learning about Robert Owen, how concerned he was about factory working conditions and what he did to improve them. We will also be going on our class trip to New Lanark on Thursday 26 September. This will be fantastic as we will get to see a real mill town, the factory and also the cotton making machines.
The ‘Inventors Challenge’ homework was given out last week. As you will have seen, by Friday the children should have a rough plan of their idea and be ready to share it with the rest of the class. We can’t wait to hear about all the fantastic inventions primary 6 think of. When the challenge is completed, all parents and carers will be invited in to school to see and hear about the inventions too.
In gym we have been training for the cross-country run in October. The children are all becoming much fitter and faster. Letters about the event were sent home last week.
Please remind your child to bring suitable gym kit to school.
Have a great week.
