This week is designated Science Week.
On Monday, P6 will have a visiting science workshop and the topic is called Fizz, Bang, Boom! Over the week, we will remind ourselves about fair testing, develop lots of science skills and finish off some of the bridge work from before the holidays.
Homework this week:
Spelling – There’s a new spelling list this week plus hear and here.
Pupil Talk – Well done P6. Everyone overcame their initial nerves to deliver a talk about a Scottish pioneer. These were interesting and very informative. This term, as part of our Talking and Listening development, we’ll have a go at holding debates about different topics. More info to follow next week which will involve some reading and research at home.
Writing – 500 words. The annual Radio 2 writing competition is upon us and closes on the 8th March so there’s not much time for us budding authors to get our stories written. I’d like this to be a flexible home/school task whereby children will get ample time in school to work on this and can save their text onto USB sticks. I can also email stories back and forth so that these can be worked on at home too. Of course, not to forget good old paper and pencil written stories!
Reading – Everyone will read for a minimum of 20 minutes per day in class.
Ski-ing – Wednesday. Children should bring their ski-ing gear with them to change into at school before we leave on the bus (after break). Please note that children should bring a packed lunch as we return to school after the dining room has closed.
Mandarin – P6 will continue to learn Mandarin from a specialist teacher.
PE – Tuesday and Thursday
