We have been learning about the Ancient Greek Olympics. It started as a religious ceremony to honour Zeus, the king of the gods. We looked at some pictures of Ancient Greek pottery that depicted scenes of Ancient Olympians and we had a very creative morning making our own. We even incorporated some of the Greek Alphabet into our designs. They show sports such as: athletics, discus, carriage racing, boxing, javelin and wrestling.
We have been talking about Global goal 5 (Gender Equality) there was lots of discussion about “boys things” and “girls things” and how society categorises activities, hobbies and clothes etc into boys and girls. We spoke about how WE CAN like anything we want to and people shouldn’t be bullied,discriminated or questioned just because some else doesn’t agree.
What does your key open ?
Today we all got a mystery key . We did some great writing planning and shared some imaginative ideas of what our keys unlocked. We will be writing our stories tomorrow .
Another successful week in P6B. Today we learned the myth of Icarus & Daedalus and we began to design our own labyrinths. This week we used the chrome books to write our own mythical stories including some of the characters we have been learning about and we are enjoying our class novel :Percy Jackson and the lightening thief.
In maths we have been revising place value up to millions and rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000.
Everyone completed homework for week one and week two homework was issued on Thursday.
Have a fantastic weekend and I look forward to seeing everyone on Monday .
Today we were using our maths and problem solving skills to work as part of a team in order to design our own theme park. We were given a budget of £5000 and a cost sheet . We knew the area that each thing would take up(eg a cafe was 4 cm2) and how much each item would cost to run in a day. We all managed to create our theme parks within budget and within the space given. We had some really creative ideas.
This week the upper school started Explore classes: our new outdoor learning lessons (p3/4 will have this next week). All 250 kids had the chance to say what they thought Explore should be about and what they wanted to learn. All the classes started making class totem poles! To quote one P5, “This sounds amazing!”
Well we survived week one ! We has lots of fun today ! We challenged each other in a game of basket ball and netball and we started to learn a new morning motivation song (we had a little boogie too). We got stuck into our reading books and created comic strips to summarise and retell our stories so far and we got brand new photos for our lunch orders (these were very cute P1 photos and everyone has grown up so much) . I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and look forward to meeting everyone who has requested an appointment, next week. If you’ve not received a slip with an allocated time please just send me a message and let me know.
Today was a great first day. We created our class charter (Still a few bits to add). Here is our promise to each other, created by the children.
“We promise to respect everyone and their rights and to listen and offer help when we can. We will believe in ourselves and motivate each other, taking pride in all we do. Our teacher will keep us safe, Educate us and help us to have fun whilst we learn . We promise to be kind and nice and love each other. We will say sorry and forgive whilst being honest . We will care for each other and include other people. We share responsibility of helping our classroom be a happy place . The year ahead is exciting . We will be friendly, kind and always challenge ourselves to be the best we can be. We won’t stop until we are proud”
Our promise to each other was made up from words, actions and ideas that the children thought were important to having a good classroom ?
Just a quick hello and welcome back to all Primary 6B pupils and parents. I am looking forward to our first day in P6B tomorrow. Please can all pupils bring their smile and best self . We will be updating our dojo page and the blog with a Termly Overview next week.
Keep your eyes on our class dojo and blog for daily and weekly updates. Hopefully this will give you any information you need, but if you would like to speak to me personally about anything regarding your child, just phone the office, and they’ll put you through directly to my class phone or just ping me a dojo message. I will be offering voluntary “Hopes and Dreams” meetings, next week which will give us the chance to meet in person and identify your child’s hopes and dreams for the year ahead.
I look forward to seeing all pupils at 0850 tomorrow .
