Primary 6

30/08/18

We are enjoying being back at school with lots of challenges in our new P6!

We have started our new topic called 'Are ye dancin'?'.  It is an intergenerational project and we will be working with our senior partners at Kincarrathie House.  We are looking forward to meeting them next week!  Some of us are a little nervous but excited to hear their stories.  We have been getting help from Helen and Caroline from Oaknote and Agent Rendell from Alzheimer Scotland to prepare for our visit.  We have been using dictaphones and working on interview techniques and open questions.

In maths we are learning about place value, for example, putting numbers in the correct columns, writing numbers in words and digits and ordering numbers and decimals.  We have been reading a lot of our class novel 'The Garbage King' and writing about it too in Literacy Circles.  In PE we have been doing volleyball and Benchball.

28/09/18This term has been full of fun!  We have been doing multiplication, addition and subtraction sums in problem solving.  In PE we have been doing child-friendly bleep tests individually and in groups to improve our fitness.  We have been looking at Growth Mindset and working on our emotion masks and 'Learning Pits'.  In art we made profile picture art of our faces which tell you what we like and about our hobbies.

In Are Ye Dancin'? we have started writing and rehearsing our radio plays and next week Hamish (the sound guy) is coming into school to record them.  We have been working with a variety of people on the project including a clinical psychologist called Liesbeth from the University of Edinburgh who came to talk to us about our questionnaires.
