Hello Primary 6 2017/18!

What a fantastic start to Primary 6 – pupils are already demonstrating that grown up and responsible attitude that is expected when you are ‘up the stairs!’

A reminder to check the website (and Twitter) for information about current learning, homework, and other exciting happenings.

This term, we are full steam ahead, learning and preparing for our P6 assembly EXTRAGAVANSA which is on Thursday 21st September. With skiing, and walking on the new Queensferry Crossing bridge, we are all very excited to take part in these special opportunities.

See below for our term 1 plan, which includes our Egyptian and Financial Education topics.

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.

 

 

 

P6T Bikeability

Primary 6T Bikeability                                08.03.17

Dear Parents/carers,

Next week P6T are receiving their Bikeability training. The bike checks are now taking place on Wednesday 15th March, as well as the training sessions. 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.
