It’s fair to say last week’s focus on health was packed full with amazing sporting taster sessions, including cricket, tae kwon do, karate, dance, hockey, cycling and basketball. Feedback from pupils was very positive about the whole week, including Sports Day and the Summer Fair!
Athletics – A super well done goes to the P6/7 athletics team who saw off competition from 14 other small schools to WIN the Midlothian Athletics Championships on Thursday! A large, shiny trophy is on its way to our trophy collection soon! Great achievement everyone!
**P7 Red Hoody – The 2020 red hooded tops with P7 names on the back are now available to buy in the online shop.**
With only four weeks to go, we still have a lot of our planned curriculum to get through so it’s back to ‘normality’ this week.
Spelling – There will be a new list this week so children should complete spelling activities as normal.
Pupil Talks/Kids Teach – Children should be preparing their presentations/lessons at home. I’ll catch up with everyone as to what they’re doing, what resources/spaces are needed and pencil in a date and time. Well done to OM and RA for coaching tennis and LW and EvC for their presentation and activity about protecting the environment. Both pairs were awesome!
Topic – We are going to start a new topic on Space so if anyone has any books or resources to bring in, that would be great. We’re going to be looking particularly at the future of space travel and current technology/space missions. Ideally, I’d like us to think about a ‘Futures’ theme, linking in with current global issues of climate change and sustainability.
Living and Growing – Week beginning Monday 10th June, P6 will have some lessons about growing up and how their bodies start to change during puberty. There’s three lessons altogether; the second lesson covers human reproduction and the third lesson covers child birth. There will be activities and worksheets to complete but the main part will be discussion. To recap, the lessons are:
- How A Baby Is Made
- How A Baby Is Born.
There is a drop-in session this Thursday if you’d like to chat about this planned unit of lessons.
Here is the diary for the week ahead:
Monday – P6 BIKEABILITY for those who applied. Bring bikes AND helmets please.
Class Photos – School photographer is in ( not for individual pics). School uniform required.
Tuesday – PE
Wednesday – Report Cards will be sent home; please check bags!
Thursday – Drop in session from 15:30 to 17:00. Please feel free to drop in for an informal chat, see the classroom and view your child’s work. It’s helpful if your child is there with you.
Friday – Poetry Assembly for winners of class poetry competition. Well done to AO who won P6’s category.
