P6a had a coding workshop this week from the team at Generation Science. They had to programme Marty the Robot to follow a set of commands and challenges. The class worked well together to programme their robots, and had fun learning a new skill. They picked up basic coding very quickly- well done everyone!

P6A have been looking at the four main operations in maths. This week we have focused on addition and subtraction – we had to go around in groups solving different addition and subtraction problems with a real life context. We enjoyed working in teams and being able to rotate around the room.

P6A loved this weeks STEM challenge on our independent learning sheet. We had to build the highest tower we could using just pencils or pens. One group’s tower was about as big as a person in the class! It was lots of fun- even when the towers fell down again!

P6A had a great morning on a Harry Potter walking tour! We got the bus to Greyfriars Kirkyard where we met our guide Charlie. He told us some really interesting facts about the inspirations behind Harry Potter. We even received a wand and learned a spell!

P6a have had lots of fun over the past few weeks learning some rugby skills with Cammy from BATS. We’ve been learning about passing, moving into space, shielding, and tackling. Lots of fun!

P6A have really been enjoying independent learning- it is helping us to develop time management and organisational skills as we have to make sure we have completed all our ‘rainbow tasks’ by Friday. It also means we are learning through more games and practical activities rather than just by worksheets. For example, when learning about Place Value we have played Place Value Jenga, Place Value Guess Who and Place Value Playdough Parade.

Meet The Teacher P6 Powerpoint 2019

Last week P6 visited the Book Festival at Charlotte Square.

We met the author Sam Gayton, and had a great time discovering how to create and develop features of a character. Sam also read some of his latest novel and answered questions. He was great fun! It was a long walk to get there and back, but we were resilient!
