P6 Week Beginning 26.10.21


I hope you all had a wonderful and restful October break. The children had lots of fun things to share today, and it all sounded like a lot of fun. 

We have come back to school with a very busy week! Today (Tuesday), we became scientists and designed our own carbon net zero towns, and had a call from the National Mining Museum to discuss our ideas. I was so impressed by how many brilliant ideas the children came up with! Then, after this we started our first workshop with Dunedin Consort, we will be working towards creating our own composition, which will then be performed by them later in the year. These workshops will run in school for a number of weeks. 

 P.E. is on Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child comes to school dressed for P.E. and has a water bottle, filled with water only. 

Homework will be handed out on Tuesday and should be handed in on Friday. This week, there will be spelling, reading and numeracy. This week, the numeracy task is a revision of multiplication, through a fun Halloween activity. 

Mandarin with Miss Sun is on Wednesday afternoon and on Thursday, we have the fantastic opportunity to meet a real life scientist online. It is certainly going to be a fun and busy week!


Important Letters went home with your child today.

  • You should have received a milk letter, which needs to be returned by Monday 1st November, if you wish for your child to receive milk in school.
  • A letter about guitar lessons also went home, please fill this in and return it, if your child is interested.
  • Finally, a letter regarding our Learning Trio’s was also handed out this afternoon, please complete the slip and return it to school by Friday 29th October by the latest. 

We will have our ZOOM assembly on Friday at 11:30am and the children have a dress down day too. This week is one of our Health Weeks, so we ask that the children wear clothes which make them feel happy on Friday. (For example, maybe their favourite top or a dress in their favourite colour?)

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch, if you need anything.
