A wee reminder for all pupils in Primary 6T – you can wear non-school uniform on Wednesday for Bikeability.
PLEASE make sure you are wrapped up super warm, and have waterproof clothing on. You need to be prepared for any Scottish weather!

“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.
Friday 10th -Thursday 16th March 2017
In Literacy this week we will be focusing on listening and talking, learning and using new words as we explore our word of the week ‘respect’. We know that this is a tricky word but we like to challenge the children!
Our Curriculum for Excellence sessions for parents take place on Tuesday and Thursday morning at 9am. We look forward to seeing you there!
In maths and numeracy this week, we will be investigating sharing out a group of items or splitting a whole object into smaller parts. We will do this at snack and with dough and other resources.
In Science this week we will be exploring the difference between living and non-living things, looking at movement, feeding and growth.
Our Health and Wellbeing focus will be on physical skills such as balancing, throwing and catching. The children will take part in some active sessions in the gym hall.
PARENT MEETINGS ARE THIS WEEK AND NEXT
Please sign up for an appointment to meet with your child’s key worker if you have not already done so.
Primary 5 have a new Maths challenge to complete in under a minute.
Primary 6T Bikeability 08.03.17
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.
