P6 Info W/b 21st June 2021

Hi all,

The final week of P6 is upon us. It seems no time at all since the start last August!

What’s on this week?


There is no homework this week.


PE  – Tuesday

School finish – Friday 25th @12:25pm


Kids Teach – Wow – what amazing lessons we were treated to last week! A range of topics covered too; types of car engines, budgeting and finance, judo, paper sculpting and games/races in PE! Every single ‘teacher’ presented their topic content and follow up activities with developing confidence and ease. I  am so proud of you all!

This week’s lessons to look forward to include graffiti art, farming, origami, obstacle races and ancient Gods!

Carrier bag – It would be helpful if pupils bring in a carrier bag to take old   school work home (although some jotters might be kept for P7).

Google Slideshow – I hope to put some recent photos of P6 into Glow so you can see what we’ve been doing lately. I’ll let the children know when this is available.


I want to say a big thank you to my class for being so resilient throughout a very difficult year. Their ability to cope with all the changes and restrictions has been remarkable. They are a fantastic bunch and I look forward to taking them on into P7 and although it’s too early to say yet, hopefully things at school will be back to normal a bit more next session. Fingers crossed!

Have a safe and relaxing summer,

Miss Brunt






P6 Info w/b 14th June 2021

Hi all,

The final two weeks of term are upon us but there’s  still so much to do!

Parents Consultations – You should have received an 10 minute appointment time for Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday.

BRAKE Walk – BRAKE is a road safety charity and on Wednesday 16th , each class will walk approximately half a mile to promote road safety awareness. The route will take us out of the school premises.

Sports Day – Well done P6 Dryden for winning this year’s P6 sports. Photos of the day can be found on the Loanhead PS Twitter feed.

Poetry Competition – Class winners and overall winners of this year’s poetry competition will be announced at Friday’s assembly.

‘Kids Teach’ – Children have been excitedly planning  lessons to teach to their peers over the final two weeks. We have been able to use Chromebooks to plan this too, which the pupils have loved.

Picnic Lunch– I haven’t chosen a specific day for our picnic lunch -we’ll be spontaneous on the day depending on weather and staff.

Euro 2021 – Children will be split into small teams, given a country to represent and then play in a fun football tournament this week.

PE – Tuesday

That’s all for now,

Miss S Brunt

Spelling Homework week beginning 7/6/21

There will be no spelling homework this week as P3 will be completing a spelling test in class on Friday. Instead I am asking you to revise all previous sounds that have been covered. Prior homework  assignments should still be available to view if you are looking to see what sounds this might include.

Please assure your little ones that this head is no big deal! They get a little anxious when the term assessment or test is mentioned. It is simply in place to inform the p4 teachers of strengths and supports needed for spelling in p4.

P6 Info W/B 7th June

Hi all,

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.

What’s on this week?

PE  – Tuesday – P6 Sports afternoon! Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions, we cannot have any spectators.


  • Spelling – as normal
  • Numeracy – A maths sheet will be sent home on Wednesday.


Order your P7 hoodies now! – Open up the school website, click on the uniform link and details should appear so you can order P7 hoodies from ImageScotland. However, you may want to wait until near the end of the summer holidays to order to allow for growth spurts! Also, hoodies should only be ordered in time for term times; the school office is closed over the summer break and so, is unable to accept deliveries during the holiday.

Class Novel StudyThe Wreck of the Zanzibar by Michael Morpurgo – developing higher order reading skills such as making inferences and discussing writer’s craft.

Picnic Lunch– If the weather stays nice,  I might take the class for a picnic one day ( just outside of the school boundary, where lots of outdoor learning already takes place, up on Ramsay Bing) Children all bring a packed lunch each day anyway and so it might be a last minute decision, depending on weather and staff available. It would be lovely to do something a bit different and we can play games too. The local outings letter signed at the start of the year should suffice as permission for this outing.

That’s all for now,

Miss Brunt
