I played the legend of Dic and Dom to practise equivalent fractions and Bamzooki Operations to practise my mental maths skills.

P6A 1k a Day.

IMG_0911IMG_0912IMG_0913IMG_0916IMG_0917

Recently 6A have been challenging themselves to running, jogging or walking 1K a day. Our route is two laps round the school but we’re gradually increasing the number of laps week by week. We hope that this will make us fitter and soon the people who have been walking will be able to jog or run too. I think it’s great but what do others think?

Maja from 6A said “I think the 1k is awesome because it keeps people fit and healthy. I find it enjoyable to have a break and fresh air to release energy that you have in the classroom so you’re not as excited.”

Finn (6A) said “I think the 1K is a good idea because it is fun and it keeps fitness levels up.”

Ursula (6A) said “I find it a good way to keep the school fit and it’s a great way to get fresh air in the day.”

Keeping fit also helps people feel better so they can work harder in the classroom.

Please leave a comment on this post to let us know what you enjoy or think is valuable about running 1K a day.

Mrs Lima’s Pick and Mix Genre Challenge and Reading in 6A

IMG_0910

Mrs Lima gave 6A a reading challenge back in October. Some children helped to design the Pick and Mix Book Challenge and everyone in 6A is working towards an award. The hand in date is Tuesday 5.1.16.

The genres are Crime, Adventure, Sci-Fi, Comedy, Diary, Myths, Autobiography, Non-Fiction, Classic, Fairytale, Sport and Animal. As part of Book Week Scotland we had a look at the website below (Click in the link below).

The Scottish Book Trust

Go to the reading menu, select kids list and select 8-11. You will find genre lists that might help you choose books for your challenge. Also if you’d like to leave a comment to recommend a book for the reading challenge or let us know how you’re getting on leave a comment on this post.

We are listening to audiobooks in class while we work, then we will do AR quizzes on them. If you have an audiobook you would to share with the class, bring it in and speak to Mrs Lima.

In class we are also looking at the Demon Headmaster by Gillian Cross. We have a lot of discussions, and feedback to the class about what we think. We have looked a lot at vocabulary, and matching meanings to words we don’t understand. This is going to be our next class novel.

Over the next few weeks, the 6A Weblog Crew will be learning more about the blog and posting information about our learning in school.

They hope that you keep checking our blog and leave some comments on the posts.

P6 Maths Homework – Week Beginning 31.8.15

times[1]Hello Primary Six,

For maths homework this week the P6 teachers would like you to revise your times tables.

If you find it hard to remember your tables you should be working on improving your recall (knowing the correct answer). If you are quite good at remembering your tables you should be working on improving your speed so that you can remember answers more quickly.

Here are some suggestions of how you could revise at home.

You could:

* Play online maths games (You could try Woodlands Junior or BBC);
* Ask an adult at home to test you with a random selection of times table questions;
* You could time yourself at the beginning of the homework, do an activity, and time yourself again to see if you are any quicker;
* You could practice by singing along to timestable songs; or
* You could come up with your own revision idea.

We would like you to spend 25 minutes revising and spend 5 minutes adding a comment to this post. Your comment should say what you did to revise and how your times tables have improved. Add your first name and class to your comment.

Example:

I asked my mum to give me a random tables test of 15 questions and then I went onto the BBC website and spent 15 minutes playing tables games. After that I asked my mum to test me again. I improved because got a higher score in the second test and managed to answer a bit more quickly.
Clare 6A

Your class teacher will be checking the blog to make sure everyone has left a comment by Friday 4th September. If you have a problem adding your comment to the blog please write it on a piece of paper so that you can add it to the blog in school time.

Remember the bigger the effort you put in, the bigger the reward!

Mrs Lima and the P6 teachers.

P6B Campout!

P6B had one of the warmest and sunniest days of the year so far for their end of year camp out last Thursday.  They walked from the school, each with their own rucksack, following part of the John Muir Way to Yellowcraigs.  When they arrived each pupil pitched their tent and then had a delicious tea cooked by Mrs Wareham.  In the evening we all took part in some games and activities.  We all had a lot of fun and would like to say a HUGE thank Anthony our camping guide, Mrs Wareham, Mrs Swinburne, all the teachers who came along in the evening and the next day. Thank you also to our parent helpers who walked with us there and back, and all the office staff, Mrs Macaulay and Mr Walker who put so much time and effort into making our trip such a huge success!
