Term 1A Overview 

First Week Back March 2021 

It was so amazing to have P5/6 back together again in class for the last week before the easter holidays. Goodbye to remote learning, hopefully forever. We have been very busy all week and have done lots of fun things. We made our own catapults and tried to use spaghetti and marshmallows to make the most secure tower we could. We had lots of fun playtime outside and used a ball of wool to show how we are all connected in some way. We did a soap experiment to show the important of washing your hands with soap. We also completed some revision of Literacy and Numeracy concepts taught during remote learning and checked our spelling if high frequency words. We also had a good long chat of our memories of lockdown and worries about starting back. What a brilliant week back P5/6. 

December 2020 

We have had a busy December in P5/6 despite not having to practice and perform the usual Christmas production or Carol Service. We worked hard right through to the last day of term. We looked at difficult fraction, and decimal work, wrote some playscipts and finished our Titanic topic by experimenting with floating/sinking and buoyancy by making our own clay boats and seeing how many coins they could hold before sinking. We also did a cool science experiment by using some tissue paper to help a paper clip float (It's all to do with surface tension). We also started doing one PE lesson inside the hall and had some fun times playing in the forest area. 

Outdoor Learning - Mental Maths 

This week Primary 6 have been revising their mental calculation of doubles of any 2 digit number, e.g. double 47, double 78. Today we went outside and worked together to calculate the answers to doubles of 2 digit numbers using the methods and strategies taught this week. We used chalk to record our method and answer on the ground.
