P6 Europe Holiday Pitches

Dear Parents/carers,

As part of our learning all about Europe and applying our skills in using persuasive language, both Primary 6 classes are currently working really hard to create a presentation all about a European city.

On Thursday 30th March, we would like to invite you to our holiday sales pitches, where you will get the chance to listen to each group’s sales pitch. You may also get the opportunity to vote for your favourites!

The pitches will be taking place in both classrooms in the upper stages from 1:30pm – 3:15pm. Please free feel to drop in at some point during these times.

Thank you for your continued support.

P6 STEM Reflections

“I learned that STEM gets your brain working hard so you can complete challenges.” – Cara.

“STEM is science, technology, engineering and maths. My group made an Olympic kite representing Greece.” -Grace.

“Our STEM skills helped us build our kites and understand the importance of having a good, strong structure.” – Abbie.

“I enjoyed the making and flying parts. I learned how to fly a kite.” – Frankie.

“I learned that building suspension is always a good thing, but to not put too much on otherwise it will weigh the kite down. I enjoyed flying the kite in the field and the suspension worked!” ‘Kyle.

“We learned how to catch the wind to make it fly.” – Freya.

“We learned proper teamwork is probably best because someone might be good at maths more than the others, and another person might be more observant of the structure of the Kite.” – Christopher.

In order to make the best of the training, the class will participate in a cycling skills lesson on Monday 13th March. Therefore, all pupils in P6T need to bring their bike and helmet (if you have them) on Monday and Wednesday next week.

Thank you for your continued support.

Life in P6T

The First Blog of 2017!

23rd of January: We got our new CLIC maths groups and then we started to look at time in maths. Then we watched an educational living and growing video about how babies are made. Next the people who needed to recite their poem again got a chance to do so and the people that had already recited their poem self assessed it on the SC grid. Then we worked on our Egypt project on mummies and played handball in PE. YAY!
24th of January: On Tuesday we started off our day by writing a Scots language mingin recipe. After that we looked at all the different time zones in Europe. We learnt that there are 4 main different time zones in Europe. Then we had our Burns Poetry Semi-Finals competition. Ewan, Abbie and Bryce competed for our class and Abbie got through to the finals which is on Friday.

25th of January: We had our CLIC maths session and then we finished our European time zones work. We had an awesome break after that we played netball in P.E. and we were learning how to use useful tactics while working as a team. Finally, it was HOME TIME!

26th of January: Firstly, we looked at our OneDrive and our e-mails and found out how to work it. Then after break time we had art with Mrs Love and we were looking at watercolour and finishing off our Paul Klee inspired wax art. In the afternoon, firstly we started taking notes for our Chapter Two of our Egypt Project and we were looking at how we can make an interesting and engaging introduction to it.

27th of January: Firstly, we presented our non-fiction reading homework in pairs. Secondly we wrote Kyle’s Special Person comments. Then we went to the Burns supper in the gym hall and we had haggis, neeps and tatties. We heard the contestants say their poem for the Burns poetry Final and they were all really good.
