P6 – Mrs Laing

Primary 6 have settled well into the new session and the classroom routines are being established.
We are listening to the novel “Dead Man’s Cove” by Lauren St John.
As part of the initiative “Take One Picture” from the National Gallery we have looked at “The Bathers of Asnieres” and produced art work to decorate our school hall. We have also written a story about an adventure at the river, which we will be sharing with parents at Parent’s night.
The theatre production of The Secret Garden has inspired some outdoor learning and watercolour paintings. We will also be using this as a stimulus for our writing.
As part of our work on resilience we are studying core values and have discussed honesty and fairness.
In maths we are working hard to improve our mental accuracy and speed. We are also using strategies to solve addition and subtraction in real life word problems.

I look forward to meeting you at Parent’s night.
