P5/6I Term 3 Parent Plan

Your child will come home today (Friday 20th January) with their learning journey jotters, which will have work from Term 1 and 2. They will also have a new jotter with their new target sheet in it. These are also attached below.

The Parent Plan for this term is attached and outlines the learning your child will be doing in school. There are ways you can support this and these are stuck in to your child’s learning journey and attached below.  

The expected home learning for this term is the Personal Project for P6. More information will be shared with you nearer the time.

Your child has created a personal target in school and we have discussed what an appropriate target might look like. Your child will need to create another target at home too. Please take the time to look through your child’s learning journey with them and discuss their work, before returning it to school by Friday 27th January.

P6 Term 2 Plan and Targets

What a start to our second term in Primary 6! Halloween, followed by our £1 challenge sale preparation – it’s a busy one!

Learning Journey jotters have been sent home with examples of work from the first term – it would be great if you could spend some time with your child to look at these, and they can tell you about all their hard work! You will also find the targets for this new term, as well as information about home learning.

Please decide on 3 targets with your child (could be from the list provided, or your own one) and the learning journey jotter must be returned to school by Monday 14th November. This is so we can start showing off all our current work in it!

Thanks for your continued support.

Empowered Learning at QPS

We are now in the final few weeks of preparation for our participation in Edinburgh’s Empowered Learning iPad project.

An email will go home to the parents/ carers of pupils in P6 and 7 with a bit more detail and a link to the agreement which needs to be signed before we can send iPads home.

Key dates for us are…

  • Wednesday 23rd November – all P6/7 pupils will be given their own iPad for school use.
  • Tuesday 29th November – we will host an information evening for families to discuss our intended use of iPads and answer any further questions you might have. iPads may be taken home by attendees after this event.
  • Wednesday 30th November – all pupils with signed agreements may take their iPads home.

P5/6 Meet the Teacher Summary (14.9.22)

Last Wednesday (14th September), we had our meet the teacher event and it was great to see so many faces. I know some families couldn’t make it along, so here is a summary of what was covered:

This is detailed on the parent plan that was emailed home and can also be found on the school website. Topics this year will be:  Ancient Egypt, Body Systems, Europe and Parliament.  

P6 are currently covering some RSHP units (a letter has been sent home regarding this). This work has been paused momentarily and will resume, but we will of course let you know when this happens. P5 will be moving on to this in the later part of Primary 5 and will also notified in advance.  

Weekly timetable:  

PE – Tuesday and Thursday taught by me. Miss Seeger will be teaching RME and French on a Thursday and Mr Carson will be teaching Technology on a Monday.  

Home Learning and Targets:  

Your child has come home and filled this out – thank you for returning. Moving forward, children will create 3 targets to do with their learning each term and ways to support them.  

These include ideas of ways to support your child – please encourage them to use Sumdog where there will be set challenges.  

  • Reading – weekly expectation in reading record so please sign if this is completed.  
  • Spelling – practice list of words using active spelling ideas. There is no expectation for this to be returned, but please send in the jotter everyday so words can be added.   
  • Any other ideas! 

Events:  

P5 are currently finishing their block of swimming lessons.  

P6 will get the chance to participate in skiing next year, more information will be available nearer the time.  

P5/6I Parent Plan and Targets

Dear Parent/Carer,

Please find the Parent Plan and Targets attached for Term 1. Your child’s learning log has been sent home for you to look at over the next week. Please return this by next Monday 12th September. There is a range of learning on these targets and space for your child to create their own personal target at the end. Please sit with your child and together, write down a personal target and ways they could achieve this target in school and return the learning log back on Monday. There are suggested home learning activities linked to the learning we will be covering this term. The expectation is that reading will be completed at home. Spelling words will come home weekly in your child’s home learning jotter and can be practised using the active spelling suggestions. Please make sure your child brings this jotter in to school on a Monday, so the new words can be added. 

As always, please ask if you have any questions and I would love to see any other photos or activities of learning linked to topics this term. 

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Innes
