P6 Week Beginning 10.1.22


I hope you all had a wonderful and peaceful festive break, it was so lovely to see all the children today. I feel like it has been forever since I last saw them all, and I loved hearing all about their Christmas news.

P.E. has now changed to Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, please can your child come to school dressed for P.E on these days.

We begin our skiing lessons next week (Wednesday 19th January) and I know the children are very excited for them. Please remember as it is cold the children will need:

  • Warm trousers or loose fitting jogging bottoms (no thin leggings)
  • Warm jumper and a waterproof jacket 
  • Waterproof outerwear is advised 
  • Ski or good hard wearing warm gloves
  • Warm/thick long socks

Please ensure that your child is on time for school as the bus leaves promptly on Wednesday morning! It is also advised that hair is worn in low pony tails and no hair products are used on skiing days. (e.g. hairspray and hair gel)

Due to a slight tightening of Covid restrictions within school, children in P6 can no longer buy a school dinner. Therefore, pupils should bring their own packed lunch from home once more. Children will eat this in the classroom.

Homework will begin next week and will follow the same routine as it did prior to the holidays. The children will have reading, spelling and a numeracy/other activity each week. This will be given out on a Monday and has to be returned on Friday.

Over the next three weeks, we have a whole school Scottish focus. Over these weeks we will be learning all about Scotland, including famous Scots and Scots’ language. At the end of the month we will have our Scottish poetry recital too. This week the children will have the chance to pick from three different Scottish poems and they will bring this home to learn. At the end of the next week, the children will have time to recite their poem to the class. This will be a great opportunity for them to showcase their passion and enthusiasm!

Mandarin will continue on Wednesday afternoons with Miss Sun.

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

Miss Lauren Waller
