P6 News and Update – Monday 17th May 2021

Hi all,

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.


Class Photo – This year, due to the ongoing Covid restrictions, there will be no official photographer visiting the school. Instead, there’ll be a P6 class photo taken by staff on Thursday.  Therefore, can all children please come dressed in school uniform on Thursday please.

P6 Elections – To coincide with the Scottish elections held on May 6th, P6 had their own election with candidates supported by party members, manifestos, political broadcasts and ballot papers. This was a super learning experience and the children excelled. I’ve put together a Google slideshow of photos  which can now be viewed in Google Classroom.

Debates – Children will be learning debating skills in class over the next few weeks. In the past, I have set this as a homework research task but due to time restrictions, we’ll complete the necessary work in school.

Art – Children are studying the art works of Van Gogh as P6s featured artist.

Science – Children have been enjoying weekly Science sessions with Mrs Cumming. Electricity is the ‘current’ topic!

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


Spelling– as normal

Numeracy Wed 19th May is National Numeracy Day ! A Sumdog homework challenge will be set on this day. In school, there will be a fun focus on numeracy and maths with some themed activities.

That’s all for now,

Miss Brunt
