Good Luck Miss Cowie

P6 have been lucky enough to have Miss Cowie , a student teacher, working with us for the past seven weeks. It was her last day with us on Friday. We have really enjoyed having her as part of our class and we have had lots of fun learning with her. Thank you Miss Cowie and Good Luck in your teaching adventure .

Wonderful Artwork in P6

We have been reading the book “Wonder” and The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse. It made us think about how little we can tell about a person, just from their appearance. It is what is inside that really counts. We thought about our strengths, passions and qualities we would like other people to notice and surrounded ourselves with them.

Sunflower Planting

We planted some sunflowers today. We have put them onto our windowsill and will take turns watering them every day. We hope that they will grow in time for the summer holidays. Some of the pupils from P6 joined us .

We have been practising our relay skills in preparation for Sports Day and learning how to improve our running technique. We are loving the great weather and being able to make the most of our outdoor learning environment.

P6 – fun with measuring

We are learning how to convert metric units in P6. We have been revising our measuring skills by measuring a variety of objects, found both inside and in our outdoor learning environment. P6 challenged themselves to find out the perimeter of the school too!

Attention All Parents!!

Important E-safety Information for Parents

It has become apparent in a number of classes across the school, that there has been a significant amount of discussion regarding the ‘Momo Challenge’.  As a school, we are keen to promote digital safety and encourage our pupils to stay safe whilst online, at both school and home, by making responsible choices.  This also encompasses our core values as a school and we therefore try to promote and encourage our pupils to share concerns and be responsible in their online usage.

Many parents/carers may already be fully aware from national media coverage that this is a challenge presented on certain social media outlets that many of our children use frequently.

We are always working hard to ensure online safety, and in light of current topics in the media we have attached some parent information as support below for you to peruse:

What Is the Dangerous Momo Challenge on Social Media? (Parent Video)

We hope you find all of this information useful in supporting your children and all our pupils and ultimately keeping them safe online.

P6 – Personal Projects

P6 – Personal Projects

Welcome back everyone!! It was lovely to see everyone back and refreshed after the holidays. I hope you all enjoyed them!

Today, a letter went home with information about our topic homework for this term. The children have been asked to create a personal project on a charity of their choice. It can be any registered charity. This week the children have been asked to look at different charities at home and choose which one they will complete their project on. I have asked them to let me know on Friday which charity they have selected.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.
