Primary 6 have made an excellent start to the year. Mr Drysdale and I are very impressed with the children’s hard work and effort during the first week. P6 have made fantastic first impressions showing themselves to be kind, caring and helpful – well done everyone!
In the first week the children have made a fabulous start in several curricular areas. In Numeracy P6 have shared their knowledge of place value. In Reading they have shared their thoughts on our new novel “You are Awesome!” by Matthew Syed and made informed predictions on what this non-fiction text is going to be about. In PE the children helped to create a PE charter with Mrs Ferguson. In Topic the children shared what they would like to learn and how they would like to learn about our new topic of “The Industrial Revolution and Inventions”. P6 have also began learning about how to be a member of a connected, compassionate classroom through the creation of our class charter.
This week the children will take part in football activities in PE, create a wall display all about the SHANARRI indicator – responsibility and will create other fabulous pieces of art work for our classroom walls.
A newsletter will be sent home this week detailing this terms learning and events in more detail. In the meantime here are some helpful reminders –
– Please can you ensure that your child has a pair of indoor shoes to wear in the classroom.
– PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. This term PE on a Tuesday will be outdoors and on a Wednesday will be indoors with Mrs Ferguson. Please ensure your child attends school in the school’s PE uniform on these days. A non-uniform jumper/hoodie can be brought in your child’s school bag to put on later when taking part in Outdoor PE on a Tuesday.
– Please also ensure that your child brings a full water bottle to school each day. This can be refilled in school when required.
Thank you very much for your support. If you have any questions please leave a comment below or contact us via the school office.
Mr Drysdale and Mrs Scott
