📗World Book Day 2021 – Digital book token 📚

📚  As part of World Book Day, the children always love to be given their book token in school.  This year I have been given a digital book token for parents/carers to save onto their phones and use in participating stores.  The children can get one of the £1 books using this token or they can get money off the other World Book Day books.  This can be used until March 28th.

Enjoy 🙂 and remember to send in your extreme reading photos

🏠P6 Home Learning in Lockdown Info – W/B Mon 11th January 2021

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year! I hope everyone is safe, rested and well. Thank you so much for the lovely gifts I received before Christmas.

As you are all aware, children will be home schooled until further notice. This can be incredibly stressful and difficult to manage; I am well aware of the challenges this presents to parents and pupils alike and so, aim to provide a good balance of activities which will revise recent P6 work and offer a little progression too. I hope my activities are straightforward to complete, bearing in mind many of you may have to share devices.

What Will Home Learning Look Like?

Home learning will be provided via Google Classroom or a Home Learning Pack of worksheets and activities.

Google Classroom  💻

There will be 3 – 4 tasks per day.

  • Numeracy/Maths
  • Literacy
  • Health & Well Being
  • Other ( this could be Topic, French or Art for example).

I will post tasks daily and these will be available from 08:50. I will be checking in at regular intervals to give feedback on assignments handed in.

I have prepared a Slideshow in Google Classroom with more information on it which can be viewed from 08:50 on Monday 11th January. Included in this is a rough guide as to the weekly timetable to expect. 

💬I will turn the ‘Chat’ function back on in the Stream. Children can  put questions on here or send as private comments on an individual assignment.

Home Learning Pack 📝

Please let me know ASAP if you would prefer a Home Learning Pack instead of using Google Classroom. However, I am going to wait and see who would like this before I assemble any packs but the plan is that these packs will be available to collect from the School Office;  if you request one, I will notify you about when your pack is ready.

 

This is a very difficult time for all of us but I am here to help and support you through this Home Learning period. Easy to say but try not to worry about it; problems can quickly be turned into solutions so please do let me know straightaway if there are any issues.

If you have any queries, please contact me through my work email:

S.Brunt@mgfl.net

Kind regards, stay safe,

Miss Brunt

Thursday Christmas Fun Afternoon – Children can wear a Christmas jumper on this day. Thanks to everyone who has already handed in £2 towards costs/ charitable donation.

Thanks for your support,

P6 Info W/B 7th December 2020

Hi all,

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.

 PE  – Tuesday and Thursday – Children should come to school dressed for PE outdoors please.

Spelling – as normal

Numeracy – Times tables practice.  This week, we’ll link measure activities with decimals work –converting cm to mms and cm to metres.  Lots of practical ‘hands on’ measuring to be done.

December Activities

Christmas Cards – Children are now able to post Christmas cards to other pupils in school as we have a Covid friendly system in place. Envelopes should have names and classes written clearly on the front.

Christmas Song – P6 chose ‘Walking in a Winter Wonderland’ to perform and film.

Christmas Activity Afternoon – Wear a Christmas jumper! Thursday 17th December. This costs£2  and covers food, prizes and a charitable donation. Thank you.

Pantos – We have two online Pantos to watch this year. We will watch the Brunton Theatre ‘Rapunzel’ performance this Thursday.

Mandarin – Children were so pleased to welcome back Miss Sun to teach Mandarin on Wednesday. Last week saw revision of greetings and numbers followed by a look at the Beijing Opera. Mandarin will continue on Wednesdays from now on.

Science – Again, children have been very enthusiastic, putting thoughts and ideas into practice with Mrs Cumming. Recently, we have been developing, testing and improving planes with ‘O’ wings. This has also allowed children to put maths into practice; measuring time, distance and ultimately working out speeds.

That’s all for now,

Miss Brunt

 

 

 

 

 

P6 Info W/B 30.11.20 ***Edited***

Hi all,

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.

Space Presentations

We had our first presentations last week and I have to say I am so impressed with each pair and individual who presented their talk on Space. Some of the graphics ,models and animations used to support what was being said were amazing.

Here’s the rota for this week. Everyone gets a practice beforehand.

Week beginning 30th November

Monday 30th – CK

Tuesday 1st Dec – OC

Wednesday 2nd – CG & EvT

Thursday 3rd – Emc & LC ; IG

Friday 4th – EW & AR ; EH & CL

 

PE  – Tuesday and Thursday

 We may be able to get another PE slot soon ( indoors) but children will still need to come to school ready dressed. Info to follow once a hall time has been confirmed. Our 2nd slot will now be on Thursdays, starting this week!

Spelling – as normal

Numeracy – Times tables practice. This week , in class we are continuing to revise decimal numbers and fractions.  We’ll also be revising telling the time ( analogue, digital and 24hour clock)

This week, we’ll link measure activities into decimals work and  make comparisons between imperial and metric systems.

December activities – We started to chat about what’s coming up in December and hopefully a newsletter will come home soon with all the dates and times of events.

A quick summary:

Every child received a letter regarding our filming of a Christmas song in school. This year every class has chosen a Christmas song and we will be filming us lip syncing or using sign language along with the song. This letter must be initialled against every statement and signed by Monday 7th December, if you wish for your child to take part. If this letter is not returned or filled out then your child will not be taking part. 

Christmas Cards – Soon, children will be able to post Christmas cards to other pupils in school – we have a Covid friendly system in place. *** The post box is now ready! ***

Christmas Party – Children can wear a Christmas jumper this day rather than bring party clothes to change into. Each class will have a separate time slot in a hall for games but most of the fun will happen in the classroom.  Date to be confirmed. Cost £2 (This covers food, prizes and a charity donation).

Pantos – We have two online Pantos to watch this year. One is from the Brunton Theatre.

That’s all for now,

Miss Brunt
