Happy New Year to everyone, we hope you all had a nice time over the holidays.
We are all glad to be back and excited about the year ahead in Primary 6!
We are glad to welcome Mrs Wallace into our classroom on a Thursday. Mrs Wallace will be teaching pupils Mathematics, French, PE and Art and Design.
We are also happy to Welcome back Steve Macara who works for Total Craigroyston. He delivers a Health and Wellbeing Programme titled ‘Health/Hope and Happiness.’
We are settling back into our working routine in class and are going to be learning many new things this term starting off with lessons on The Scottish Wars of Independence. We are enjoying exploring this past event and we are using our iPads to support this learning.
Within Literacy we will continue to read and study our class novels as well as working on our spelling and grammar. Report writing will be a big focus this term to allow the children to transfer their learning from other Curriculum areas into Literacy. For example, the children will be writing reports based on science experiment, Scotland’s history and newspaper reports liked to our class novel the Iron Man.
Within Numeracy and Mathematics, we will be working hard to increase our mental agility based around the 4 operations. We will also be learning about data handling through reading graphs and creating various graphs to display information we have collected and collated.
This year, we are enrolling primary 6 pupils within the Pope Francis Faith Award. This prestigious new award which recognises young people putting faith into action and showing “signs of love” to others. It is named in honour of Pope Francis because of the good example he gives to everyone. Starting this term, all Primary 6 pupils will be involved. They will learn about the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and how they can use these in good ways. More information will follow through letters and leaflets.
Feedback from the children showed that they enjoyed the ‘Snow White’ Pantomime and are looking forward to going to the theatre to see Mary Poppins. This children will also be taking part in costume workshops and pantomime classes to develop their understanding of the theatre. This Programme is called the Start Project and the children learn many new skills throughout this programme.
Please note that P.E. Days have changed to a Monday and a Thursday. Both indoor and outdoor kits should be brought to school on these days.
Thank you for your continued support!
Miss Fallon and Primary 6
