This week in P7…
On Monday we wrote our imaginative stories about a lost sword. We all tried very hard.
On Tuesday we met our new hometeams. It was very fun and it was noisy. We made shields and put our team names on it with our names.
On Wednesday we had music with Mrs Mailer. We were practising our rhythms using a video on youtube. Then we had Ms Ferguson. Now, we have Ms Ferguson on Wednesdays. We were converting 24 hour to 12 hour time. Then after lunch we had Miss McKay again and we did some ICT. We made fact files about Flora MacDonald. Flora MacDonald helped Bonnie Prince Charlie flee from Scotland.
On Thursday we did PE with Miss Gordon. We did some four square and practised volleyball. It was very fun and enjoyable.
On Friday we did French with Mrs Ballantyne. We were learning school subjects in french!

P7 have had a tiring week back at school because it has been their first full week in almost 2 months!
The most exciting part of the week was when we met our P1 buddies because we weren’t sure if we would get them or not (they’re so cute as well).
We made cards for them and went outside to read a book that we all chose for them. We went in the sunshine and it was lovely.
We started planning our learning about the Jacobites which is our new topic for the term. We learned about how it started and some of the battles.
In Art this week we were doing our self-portraits which included shape, shading and colouring.
The thing that we are most excited about is the reading groups because it has been a very long time since the last time we did them and we might have new ones!

Happy Monday P6,
Please find below your timetable for the week. You will see each day posted on our Google Classroom. This does not have to be followed exactly…make it work for you. If you do want some structure to help motivate you then this will be helpful.
Remember to have screen breaks, get outside lots (whilst it is still sunny) and talk about how you’re feeling. I am here for you too…just send me an email if you want a chat.
Our Learning Hero this week is Super Collaborative. This is a tricky one when we are working at home but there are people in your house to collaborate with. It might be you are helping a younger sibling, or an older sibling is working with you? You might be helping mum or dad with things at home…let me know…get mums and dads to email me! :0)
Have an enjoyable week. I am particularly excited about International Day of Dance on Wednesday.
Week Beginning Monday 27th April
Good morning everyone!
I hope you had a wonderful Easter break and that you are refreshed and ready for our new term. I have put our timetable for the week below…make sure you have a little look. I’m excited for the term ahead.
I want you all to remember that your health and wellbeing is the most important thing to me. Make sure you are getting lots of exercise, that you are taking screen breaks and that you are talking to your grown ups if you are feeling overwhelmed. Remember I am also here for you to talk to so just send me a wee email. Activities do not need to be completed in the same order as the timetable…it’s up to you.
Speak soon! :0)
Week Beginning Tuesday 21st April
Good morning P6!
Below you will find your learning timetable for the week. You are not expected to do everything every day. Please make sure you are taking plenty of screen breaks and getting lots of fresh air. I’m looking forward to more wonderful learning this week!
Our Learning Hero this week is Rainbow Respect. Have a discussion at home about what being respectful sounds like, looks like and feels like.

Hi Primary 6,
Here is you full timetable for the week. Please remember that this is just guidance and tasks do not have to be done at the exact times on the timetable…this is just to give you an idea of how long each task should be taking. Doing it at these times would help to keep you day structured.
Each day on our Google Classroom, there will be more detailed information and your tasks will be uploaded here.
Remember our Learning Hero this week is INDEPENDENCE so I’ll be looking out for this with every task.
Parents, please remember to let me know all the amazing things your children are getting up to!
Miss McKay is just learning too so if anything technical doesn’t work, then let me know and we will get it sorted.
See you all tomorrow!

In P6 this week, we have been learning about 3D shapes and their nets in Maths. In Art we have been focusing on shading 3D shapes. In Technology we have been using the Tinkercad app for 3D shapes and have learned about the history of the telephone. We created a timeline. In Music we have been learning songs for Sports Relief and we have been reading scores. In Literacy we created a book poster to advertise a friends book, we practised summarising while reading up on Alexander Graham Bell and looked up vocabulary we didn’t understand in a dictionary.
P6 have started a reflection carousel on a Friday as a way to reflect back on our learning during a week. One group each week will have the chance to write a post for the blog and Miss McKay will post this the following week. Below is our first reflection…
P6 have had a busy week. In Writing we have been doing our Big Writing assessments so we can get our new targets and we have started writing our stories for the BBC 500 words competition. In Numeracy we have made posters about our learning on fractions, decimals and percentages as an assessment. In Art we drew and labelled a brain to link with HWB. We have also been learning about strategies to cope with stress in our home teams. In ICT we presented our learning about how to be healthy and we also did surveys. In RME, we have been sharing what we believe in and discussing that we have a choice. We have moved our Spelling from afternoon sessions to morning sessions. This is working well because we are more focused. Our rule this week is ‘sc’.
