We’re Celebrating Eid! – Eid Halaweyat

Marwan’s mum very kindly baked some delicious  traditional sweets for us to taste. As part of our Religious and Moral programme of work this term we have been learning about Islam. As we have a number of Muslim pupils in our class, it has been a fantastic study to help us learn more about the Islamic faith. Last week saw an important date in the Muslim calendar, Eid. 

Thank you very much Mrs Hegy for taking the time to bake for us, they were very yummy! 

 

On the 15th May Primary 6 made good use of the glorious weather to head outside.  As part of the whole school Community Group Litter Pick we were designated the area of woodland beside the running track on the Avenue.  We didn’t think there would be much for us to collect but unfortunately we were proven wrong. The combined total of the three bags we filled was 3.5kg.

As a class we suggest that you should take all rubbish home with you, and where possible, try not to buy snacks and food with lots of packaging. Most of our rubbish was torn crisp packets and glass.

Numeracy

This term we have been measuring things and learning about centimeters, millimetres and grams. We have been weighing food tins and measuring the playground. We have been working on our own and together. We have also been weighing things and estimating how much they weigh. By Eilidh and Lucy

 

 

 

Bikeability

On Tuesday Primary 6 started sessions of bikeability.  During bikeability they have learnt how to be safe on their bikes! They have also been learning how to get their bike on and off the road safely.  This isn’t their first time doing bikeability!  They had a 4 week block in term 3, and they are now doing another 4 week block of bikeability. This term we will be going out on the roads near the school, learning how to signal and be road aware.  By Kayla and Ailsa

 

 

 

PE – with Mr Friel

This week we continued our PE block on golf, introducing the wedge to our skill set. The class have enjoyed the sessions so far and we’ve been really impressed with their co-ordination and control of the ball.   Next term Mr Friel (PE specialist) and Mrs Gordon will be collaborating on PE sessions, and our class will join P6/7 for a block on athletics.

  • Please note that this will be on a Monday after lunch, instead of our usual Tuesday slot.

 

 

 

 

The past few weeks P6 have been dramatising sections of the Easter story and discussing the symbols of Easter which come from the story. Today we took our learning outdoors into the spring sunshine. Here are some snapshots from our plays.
