Boy’s Football is tomorrow afternoon (Tues 21st) ; the boys know who is involved in this tournament.

Looking ahead…

Next week is Health Week (WB 27th May) with the focus on physical activity and Mrs Duncan has already done a sterling job organising many sporting taster sessions. More details to follow but for now, Monday 27th (pm) is Sports Day and on Friday 31st it’s the Sports Showcase AND the day of the Summer Fair!

Busy, busy, busy!

Hi all,

Here is the homework for the week.

Spelling – New list as usual.

Reading – We’re reading poetry books in school so no books will be sent home.

Numeracy – I’ve put a new challenge on Sumdog. It’s a decimal challenge with 100 coins to get.

Pupil Talks/Kids Teach –  As we don’t have enough time to do both, children will choose to do either a Pupil Talk or plan and teach the class a short lesson. Children can work in pairs if they wish.  Some children are champing at the bit to get started. More information will follow on Tuesday. Everyone will get a couple of weeks to prepare.

PE is on Tuesday and Thursday.

Reminder – Next Monday (6th) is a holiday and the school is closed to pupils and staff.

That’s all for now, thanks for your support.

P6 Home Learning and News W/B Tuesday 23rd April 2019

Hi all,

Welcome back!  I hope everyone had a relaxing break and that this recent glorious weather stays around for a long time.

The final term is here, with a couple of Monday holidays in May for the pupils. Time seems to have whizzed past. We have such a lot of learning to squeeze in: with mini science topics such as Electricity, Space and Living and Growing; a historical look back in time studying The Jacobites; the annual Poetry Competition, Health Week with Sports Day , Bikeabilty, a Novel StudyPupil Talks and/or Kids teach; the Summer Fair… the list seems to go on!

Homework this week consists of spelling only. There will be lots of information to follow about other events and tasks when required.

Children will continue to read daily in class, choosing from a set range of novels this term and there will also be poetry homework soon.

Housekeeping

It would be very helpful if children can come to school prepared with writing pencils, rubbers, sharpeners, coloured pens etc. Everyone is required to bring indoor shoes and a full PE kit. At the moment, PE is on Tuesday and Thursdays. Children should only have water to drink in class although may bring juice as part of a packed lunch.

 

Thank you,

Miss S  Brunt

Hi all,

It’s the final week of term. There will be no homework set but here is a quick reminder of events this week.

Debates – Round 3 starts this week and will occur on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Children will get time on Monday to practise with their group. Next term, children will be asked to prepare another Pupil Talk on any subject (with a partner if so wished). A further talking and listening challenge will be ‘Kids Teach’ where children  plan and  prepare a lesson of their choice to teach to the whole class. I’m just giving children plenty of time in advance to start thinking about these two projects.

Wednesday Dr Bike visits Loanhead so P6 can bring in their bikes to get checked over.

Thursday eveningEaster Event – tickets on sale now or can be bought at the door.

Friday – Children will walk from school up to the local church for an Easter service.

Term ends Friday 5th April @12:25pm.

All resume Tuesday 23rd April.

Have a great break,

Miss Brunt
