Primary 6 1.2.17

Hello everyone!

Primary 6 have enjoyed a very busy week so far. On Monday the children researched and created character profiles for their given passenger who was on board the maiden, and only, voyage of the Titanic. Today the children were able to develop their facts and created a biography of their Titanic passenger. The children worked extremely hard and we are very pleased with the results.

In Science, we have begun learning about The Human Body. Children learned about the main organs, their functions and locations inside our bodies. The children are looking forward to learning more about the different systems of the body including the respiratory, digestive and nervous systems.

On Monday and Tuesday we explored the celebration of Chinese New Year. Children explored the traditional story of Chinese New Year and some also created cards for family and friends in the lucky colour red. A big thanks to Cameron (P6C) who even taught some of us how to write and speak in mandarin!

On Monday, the school held its annual Burns Afternoon. As part of this we sang “You’re Welcome Willie Stewart” and Daisy and Aleigha recited their winning poems. A group of P6 and 7 pupils from the Senior Challenge Group organised and ran the whole afternoon. A huge well done to them for planning such an excellent and well received event!

This week is Assessment Week which means that children have been completing all of their work in a special assessment jotter. The children have been working extremely hard to complete their best work. Please look out for these jotters in your children’s jotters next week when you are in school for parent consultations. These will take place on Tuesday 7th February 5-7.30pm and on Wednesday 8th February 4-6.30pm. You can book your appointments online or through the school office.

This week, P6C have been given their new reading books. Each group should have read Chapter 1 by next Monday (Chapters 1-3 for the blue group) when we will start Literacy Circles. The children will be given a homework booklet on Monday with one piece of homework to complete each week for the following Monday. Please look out for these novels and booklets in your child’s homework folder beginning on Monday.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Hello

Thank you to all the children who handed in very creative and well thought out inventions to school today.  We can’t wait to look at them in closer detail! Our Inventions Showcase will be on Wednesday 12th October.  Parents and families are able to visit the P6 classrooms to view the inventions from 9:45-10:45am and 2:15-3:15pm.  Please enter and exit the school through the P4/5 entrance.

Parents’ nights are on Wednesday 12th (5-7:30pm) and Thursday 13th (4-6:30pm).  We look forward to seeing you all to discuss your child’s progress.

Please note that next week our Indoor PE day has changed for one week only. This week PE with Miss Inglis will be on Thursday.  Miss Clark’s class should not come to school dressed in their PE kit as they do on Wednesdays as our time for PE on Thursday is later in the day. Outdoor PE will be on Monday as normal.

Have a lovely weekend

P4/3 Update 12.2.16

Thank you to all who attended our parents evening meetings. It was nice to see so many friendly faces and to be able to feedback positively on so many of the class.

Hope you are all looking forward to a lovely relaxing long weekend and maybe even have some fun plans. We start back on Wednesday and next week homework will be maths and reading but no spelling.

Our parent assembly is on 26th February (2 weeks time) More details on this to follow next week.

Enjoy the break, see you all on Wednesday.
