Happy Christmas everyone, and here’s something to maybe make you smile over the break!
This term we have been learning just how powerful magic e is. This is our song all about what magic e can do.
See if you can read these words and explain the rules.
We are trying very hard to learn to read and write our tricky words.
They are tricky because
- there are sounds that you hear but you don’t use to spell them
- there are sounds you can’t hear but that you have to remember to write down
These are the new tricky words we are learning this term:
eight, learn, money, people, four, again, write, great, move, school, before, because, story, does, done
Here is a list of the all tricky words we have learned since primary 1. We are trying hard to spell these words correctly when we are writing stories.
Remember Santa is always particularly impressed if you spell these words correctly in your letters.
It’s amazing that we are nearly halfway through the year already! The children have been working really hard right across the curriculum, while taking onthe duties of P7 well.
Since the beginning of November we have been at Benmore, had Parents’ Evenings, welcomed Pudsey to a Strictly Assembly, been immunised against the flu, learned about the Old Testament during Bible Alive presentations and helped at the Christmas Fair! And this is all as well as the Number Talk numeracy, improving our reading and writing and the Remebrance and Friction work we have been investigating.
And what’s coming up? Next week we’ll attend the P1-3 Nativity (not the staff one…) and are looking forward to Macastory’s Festive Friday show, The Frost Giant 2 – The Mirror of Malice. Don’t forget your winter jumpers!
On 18th December our violinists will entertain us with a concert and Wednesday 20th December is…our ceilidh!
We have hired a 6 piece band for this event, and the children are encouraged to dress well for this. More grown up than a “just” party they will dance with the invited guests and take part in games.
We also ask that each child brings something for the buffet table – enough for themselves and one other or tow others, not all 55 pupils! – and will ask them for their ideas in advance to prevent 55 plates of sausage rolls which, while delicious, have finite appeal…
Term will end after the church service on Friday 22nd December at 12 noon. Then we’ll see you are the break for 2018!
All Primary 6 pupils have each received their loan of £1.00, and they are already busy putting together their business plans and recording expenditure.
The main aim – to make a profit!
All other classes will be invited to our sale on Friday 10th November, where all products will be available to purchase – all your support is greatly appreciated, as all profit made will go towards a P6 school trip.
Photos and the final total will be available via our QPS Twitter page.
Thanks for all your support!
