P6 meet P3!

Today we went down to visit Primary 3 and listen to all of their stories – we had everything from treasure islands and pirates to adventures in the jungle!

We then teamed up to explore our loose parts and our task was simple – “Create Something Great”. We made dens, slides, jails, swings, swimming pools and even a replica of the Titanic. Take a look at our pictures below to see how we got on!

A special shout out to Dylan who…… after 3 million attempts……. managed to build his shelter! We’re ignoring the massive tent poles sticking out of the side!

Cook School!

This week P5 and P6 went cooking!

Everyone received a recipe box and had a fantastic time making some vegetarian mini party pies. Take a look at how we got on below.

We must say a huge thank you to Mrs Clark who arranged everything and coped very well with all the food delivery issues – what a first week back it was for her!

Spring Forward with the Sixes!

We hope you had a great Easter break! We wanted to share some of the fun things we were learning about before the holidays…

In P6A we have been doing a lot of fun spring-related things. We used watercolours to make colourful and bright flowers! We chose flowers because they’re connected to spring. With everything happening in Ukraine Mr Wallace told us about pysanky eggs which are said to hold peace. Also we have enjoyed completing some French word searches, where we could use our iPads to help us translate the words we saw. We also wrote our fabulous acrostic Spring-themed poems. The word we used had to be spring related; for example: Easter, Blossom, Flower and Spring. With Ms Hussein, we learned how Christians celebrate Easter.

The last week of term was a great week and we finished it off with some baking, with thanks to our P7 helpers who came to help out. Overall, we had an amazing week!

Thanks to all the P6s who helped with blog-writing ideas and photographs of their work, with special thanks to Zack, Jessica, Lucy, Curtis and Dylan J 😊

P6A turns Tarzan!

In P6 this term, we have been focusing on gymnastics and learning techniques to balance, for strength, and working on different rolls. We have also practised cartwheels, handstands, slides, and lots, lots more! We have been learning to make a three-step sequence using one of five stations using different gymnastics equipment.

Successful Sixes!

Although we have only been back a few weeks, there’s already lots of success to be celebrated in Primary 6. Many of the class have worked very hard to deserve Growth Mindset Superhero certificates, including our superhero of the month: Teamwork Tina.

Congratulations to the Primary 6 (and 7) footballers who managed to win their first match at the weekend by a whopping 16 goals to 1! Fantastic result.

As well as success on the football pitch and in school, we also have two pupils in the class who deserve a special mention for their brilliant efforts outside of school. Well done to Ruby for passing her dance audition and also to Lilly A for being shortlisted for the lead role in the Nutcracker in the Scottish ballet – what an amazing achievement!

Keep up the great work, Primary 6!

Week One Fun!

Salutations! P6 ROCKS! We are having a blast in the best class. As soon as we started we got a warm welcome by Mr. Wallace and Mrs. Durie. What a great start to Primary 6. We played a few games to get to know each other. We had great fun at breaktime. Mr. Wallace, our teacher read “The Midnight Fox” to us. After that we wrote down numbers and why they were special to us. Lunch was next and it was great. Then we play a few math games like Squares and Pig. We started our tray labels. Meanwhile people were called out to the allotment to pick tomatoes and apples.

We practiced our french numbers by playing a game. The next day one of our amazing classmates wrote a book called The Dragons Orb and we got to read a few chapters of the amazing book. We talked about the school values and children’s rights. We talked about this because we are currently making our class charter, the theme for this is emojis.

Day 3 started with us planning this blog! We first wrote down our ideas and started the blueprint of this blog and now we are writing this blog!   

We are looking forward for an other year of fun look out for our blog next week P6A😊😊 Adios!

(Thanks to Curtis, Jack S, Harry Ga, Aarush, Elsie, Lucy, Lilly A, Jessica, Harry Gi and Dylan J for sharing your ideas in this week’s blog. Hopefully other names will appear next time!)
