Term 1

Wow! What a term 1 we had in our P6/7 class. The time has just flown by with lots of fun and learning along the way.

In Literacy, we were working on Greek Mythology and covered the story of Theseus and the Minotaur. Consequently, we wrote our own rendition. Just this week gone by we were looking at persuasive writing and constructed a piece of writing persuading our fellow pupils to stop the damage of Fast Fashion in society.

In Numeracy, we have been building on our knowledge of addition and subtraction. We have looked at place value and decimals. Currently, we have just looked at perimeter and are excited to learn about area. The pupils have also been learning about shape and got to design their own 3D shapes as in the image below.

In Science and Social Studies, we have been looking at electricity, as well as renewable and non-renewable energy. We then got to design our own circuits which the pupils loved. So far, in Social Studies we have covered modern politics and economics in Britain and the pupils subsequently used the knowledge they learned from this in their own house captain elections within the school.

In Religion, we have been looking at various passages of the bible. Pupils get to look up the stories on their iPads every morning before we have a discussion about the certain book, chapter and verse, before completing an activity on it. We have also continued on with our Pope Francis Faith Award, which will help prepare us for our Confirmation later in the year.

Finally, In Expressive Arts, we have covered a wide range of material, varying from art where we designed posters in relation to the upcoming COP26, to music where every Thursday the pupils get to learn a Woodwind instrument, to P.E with Mr. Creaney and on some Fridays I have got to teach the pupils some Gaelic Football! The pupils have taken to it really well and enjoy getting to show off their talents outside of the classroom. I have been very impressed!

So as term 1 draws to a conclusion we in P6/7 are super excited for term 2.

Enjoy the half term break.
