Morning everyone and happy World Book Day!
I hope that you are all keeping safe and warm and that you are having lots of fun time in the snow!
To keep you busy today, I would love you to choose 1 or 2 of these activities to complete!
-Build a snow castle then take a picture and get an adult to send it to me on dojo or bring the picture in to school.
-As it is World Book Day, share your favourite book with someone at home. After reading the book, draw a picture of your favourite character and write 3 exciting sentences about that character.
-Write a poem about the snow! You could write a Haiku, an acrostic or a Winter is…poem!
-Spend some time playing Hit the Button to practise your times tables.
-Make some snowballs! Measure how far you can throw them! What is your furthest throw? Who in your family was able to throw the furthest?
It would be awesome to see some of your pictures today on class dojo or you can bring your work to school with you when we return!
Stay warm and I will see you soon!

In P6C, it has been a busy but positive first week back. We all changed tables for our last term in P6. We are ready to make our final term the best one yet! In Literacy we did some writing about the fun we had over the Easter break. We learned some new words for spelling linked to our new Human Body project. In Drama, we played lots of different games. It was hard and our highest in the number game was 5 so we had to keep starting again. In Maths, we were looking at compass directions. We have produced some very detailed mind maps about our class novel, Midnight Gang by David Walliams. We also had to write a review about our favourite film. We enjoyed that because we were interested in the film. Miss McKay is hoping this will help us to write better reviews on the books we have read. We have started our new Science project about the Human Body. We started out making Skeletons with split pins and we have done some Listening and Talking to learn more facts about how amazing our skeleton is. We learned that there are 206 bones in our body, the skeleton is stronger than steal but weighs less than 10kgs, the hand has 27 bones therefore has the most movement of all and we learned that the foot has 26 bones and 33 joints. We also managed well to keep up with our Daily Mile. In assembly this week we were thinking about aspirational leaders. We were discussing the fact that every single person in our school can be a leader.
Thanks for reading! :0)

This week in P6C we have been learning about Doctor Barnardo, and how he made a school for boys and girls. He particularly helped homeless children and went out to seek them every night. Continue reading “P6C Blog – Week Ending 30th September”
In Social Studies this week, we have been comparing the lives of rich and poor children in the Victorian times. We learned that most poor children would work in coal mines or factories or cotton mills. Poor children sometimes had to beg on the streets and orphans had to go to work in the workhouses. When the poor children were working they were only paid 8p per year! We are glad we are children now not in the Victorian times. Rich Victorian children did not have to work. They normally had a nanny to look after them. Continue reading “P6C Blog – Week Ending 23rd September 2016”
This week we had a very special guest in our classroom. The First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, came to visit with education ministers from around the world. We spoke to the First Minister about Making Thinking Visible. Miss McKay is teaching us about all the different routines to make us deeper thinkers. We told her all about Colour, Symbol, Image which is a routine we used to help us organise our thoughts about our class novel. She was really impressed and told us that she often thinks of the days of the week having different colours. She explained she sees Monday as red and we all thought it was because Monday’s can be really hard after the weekend. It was a really exciting day here at Windygoul and we felt very proud of our school. Continue reading “P6C Blog – Week ending 2nd September 2016”
