P6 participated in the Scottish Book Trust Author Live event with Scottish writer Pamela Butchart.

This week we did our first Learn Its Beat That! The sheets are coming home so everyone can practise and develop their quick recall of the Learn Its they are working on.

Congratulations to the Stars this week who were awarded the class certificates - Nicki and Tia-Jay!

 Please remember P.E. kits, active spelling jotters and coat everyday.

P6 have been learning about homophones – here’s a game to play at home

Can you match the words that sound the same, but are spelt differently and have different meanings? E.g.: pair and pear. We made posters to explain what the words meant and what a homophone is.

Remember to bring in your active spelling jotters every day and look on the spelling page of the website for lots of ideas to help remember them.

Next week is Maths week and we will be helping the P1\2 with counting and everybody now has sumdog passwords and usernames so make sure your child gets on to it and practises maths! Or click here

to practise adding decimals.

QUICK REMINDER!

Bring P.E. kits, your active spelling jotter and a coat every day. Thank you

We have been learning about set design with real set designers coming into talk to us. We are going to be designing our own sets for this years’ pantomime for when Perth Theatre re-opens this year.

Primary 6 say that Maths has been fun! We’ve been looking for patterns in our times tables with Mrs Low and revising smile addition with Mrs T.

We did our first Big Write based on the Class Novel ‘The Graveyard Book’ by Neil Gaiman. Cole liked how everyone had different ideas and everyone enjoyed the virtual tour of a graveyard.

 

Welcome back!

For your information Mrs Thorogood teaches Monday-Wednesday and Mrs Low on a Thursday and Friday.

Please ensure your child brings their P.E. kit every day.
