Happy New Year Everyone!

We hope that you had a fantastic festive period. We were very happy to welcome the children back to school today and hear about their exciting holidays.

This week is the start of a very busy term for Primary 6. Today we began learning songs with Mr Platt for the P6/7 Show which this year is “Alice in Wonderland”. Some children have chosen to audition for bigger roles in the production. Everyone will find out their role within the show in the next couple of weeks. Please look out for scripts in your child’s school bag. We appreciate all of the support you give children to prepare for school shows at home.

We will be continuing to work on “A Tale Unfolds” for the first few weeks of this term until our class film has been completed. Once this is completed we will begin work on our new Interdisciplinary topic: The Titanic.

This week the children have also been reflecting on their own progress last term and will set themselves new goals for what they would like to achieve both in and outwith school in 2017. Please discuss these targets with your child.

PE days are now:
Indoor PE – Monday
Outdoor PE – Thursday

Thank you for all your support. See you next week!

Hello everyone

Primary 6 are enjoying getting into the festive spirit throughout the last week. As well as our Christmas Party the children enjoyed watching the P2/3 Nativity and the P1 Nativity. Well done to all of the Primary 6 children who took on narration roles at both the P2/3 Nativity and the Nursery Christmas Concert. They were a fantastic help to staff and pupils.

This week we will be working more on our “A Tale Unfolds” Topic, learning more about script writing and stage direction. We are looking forward to filming more soon! This topic will carry on into the New Year and we look forward to finishing our film.

A letter should have been sent home with your child on Friday detailing costume requirements for the P6 Assembly which is this Friday. If your child has no clothing suitable for their role please ask them to let their teacher know and we will try to accommodate them in school.Β On Thursday the children are looking forward to watching a pantomime that is visiting the school. The children also have the opportunity to attend the local church next Tuesday to partake in a variety of activities related to the Christmas story. The session is entitled: “Bubblegum and Fluff!”

This will be the last blog post of the year. School will resume again on Wednesday 4th January for another busy and exciting term. Next term we will finish our “A Tale Unfolds” topic, start to learn about the Titanic and take part in the P6/7 School Show.

We hope that you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! See you again in 2017!

Hello everyone!

Primary 6 are having a very busy and productive week so far. Our “A Tale Unfolds” topic is well underway and the children are participating very enthusiastically. We have been exploring different camera angles and have been using these whilst filming others to great effect. We’re looking forward to the rest of the topic!

The children have also begun rehearsing hard for their assembly which is next Friday. Please continue to encourage them to practise their words at home.

In maths both classes have been continuing to work on our multiplication skills. We have been doing this through a variety of activities including whole class multiplication challenges. Well done to Murray & Louisa who are the current champions in Miss Clark’s maths class. Keep practising!

Please note that the children no longer have indoor PE with Miss Inglis on a Wednesday. From now on P6 PE days will be:
Monday – Indoor Gym with Miss Clark & Mrs Wylie.
Thursday – Outdoor Gym with Miss Clark & Mrs Kelly.

Enjoy the rest of your week! 😊

Miss Clark, Mrs Wylie & Mrs Kelly

 

UPDATE:

The date of our assembly has now changed to Friday 16th December – even more time to practise! 😊
