The information for this week is as follows.
Wednesday – Skiing
Primary 6 will be skiing at Hillend ski centre. Remember to bring your warm ski clothing to change into and a water bottle. Last week was a lot of fun and the children all seemed to enjoy it. I was very impressed with the skiing skills that I saw!
Thursday – Junk Modelling
This Thursday, Primary 6 are joining their Primary 1 buddies to take part in a STEM challenge. P6 and P1 have designed their own baskets to carry apples by zip wire from class to class across the atrium. They have given careful thought about the strength, durability and weight of their materials. If you have any junk and packaging at home that you would be willing to donate to us to help us build our designs, Miss Ramsey and I would very much appreciate these donations.
PE – P6 have their PE lesson on a Thursday afternoon, so it is a reminder that all children will need their kit to change into each week.
Friday – Spelling dictation and revision of Numeracy homework.
Other News / Events
Times tables practice
I recommend continuing with some practice of times tables at home. The children all have their log in details for Sumdog and they can also access the website topmarks, which has fun games for practice.
Learning Trio Meetings – Term 2
All children in P6 have received a note with the time and date for the Learning Trio meetings for Term 2. These have been set for Thursday 6th February and Friday 7th February.
I want to congratulate the children who were involved in the Athletics competition last Tuesday, as they came in first place! This is a remarkable achievement, and all the children that took part were given a round of applause and much deserved recognition in assembly. Loanhead P.S were competing against schools from all of Midlothian, so very well done!
Burn’s Poem Recital Assembly
It was a fantastic assembly last Friday listening to all the wonderful poems being read and sang aloud. The children put in a lot of effort and it showed in their recitals. I want to thank the children in P6 for reciting their poems in class, which I really enjoyed! As well as the children who performed in Friday’s assembly. It was wonderful to see! Congratulations to the two winners from our class!
