P6A – Mr Wallace


Monday 17th August:

It’s one week until his return but we were blessed with the presence of Mr Wallace today. He ‘popped in’ just before lunch via Microsoft Teams to say hello and see how we were all getting on…

Tuesday 11th August:

Primary 6!

Welcome to a new year, a new class and a new classroom (you are the first year that has been in this special new room!). Sadly I am not going to be in the classroom for the first few days but Mr Morley (who will be taking you whilst I’m away), Miss Inglis and I have been chatting about the year ahead and I am really looking forward to meeting you all when I am back.

In the first week or so, we will be focusing on catching up with your news and finding out how everyone has been doing. In the second week, we will begin some whole class reading, times tables and ‘speedy’ maths challenges, and thinking about our class charter, and the type of classroom environment and rules we will be expecting this year. You might want to think about our school values and how we can connect our charter to those… I’d like you to have your 2 truths and 1 lie ready for when I am back (remember, don’t tell anyone else in the class, to make it more fun), so have a think about what you’re going to say before then.

For the moment, Mr Morley should be able to answer all your questions when you start (either Wednesday or Thursday) but if you are not really not sure about something that is on your mind over the next few days, your parents can access a Parent Guide which is available on the Home Page of the Carrick Knowe website.

I thought you might like a sneak preview of the classroom you’re going to be in this year, so have a look at these photos… Once we all settle down into the classroom we will have the opportunity to change it around a bit and update the empty walls with all of your fantastic work!

A quick reminder that you’ll be entering the building through this door on Wednesday/Thursday and I know Mr Morley is really excited to be welcoming everyone back.

I look forward to seeing you all very soon!

Mr Wallace
