P5/6 Update

Once again another Friday comes along and another week of learning.
This week we were joined for part of the week by the P6’s from P6/7 as their P7 classmates were taking part in ‘Ardroy on Tour’ activities. From the snippets of conversation that I overheard, the P6’s are now really looking forward to their time at Ardroy next year. Here’s hoping that things return to normal and that they will get the chance to do the full Ardroy experience.

Today (Friday), I have asked the children to consider applying to represent their class as its Rights Respecting School committee member. The class have done lots of work in this area last year with Miss Graham and I’m sure that whoever is selected will be a valuable member of the RRS team. We will have presentations and a class vote early next week. I will add an activity on Seesaw later today with more details of what the children have to do if they are interested in applying.

In Literacy, we have continued working on our letter writing and emailing skills. I am seeing some wonderful letters now being produced. We have done some work on spelling and the class scored very well in a recent spelling assessment.

In Numeracy, we finished working on multiplication and have now moved on to division. This can be an awkward concept for many to grasp and we are working on ways that we can become more comfortable working on division. Some of the class have started to produce a short ‘How to’ video for Seesaw. Look out for these coming your way soon.

In Digital Literacy, our email skills are getting better and better. We are currently in the middle of drafting an email to Ross MacKenzie, the author of our class novel, to let him know how much we have enjoyed his first book - so much so, that we have moved straight on to reading his second book.

In P.E. this week, Mrs Hay has had the class doing some line dancing! I’ve not seen it for myself yet but maybe next week I will sneak along to the hall and get a quick video of them in action to share with you.

Our school ipads have now been returned following their recent update. This means that we will now be able to show you some of the work that you have missed out on over the last few weeks. Look out for lots and lots of Seesaw notifications coming your way in the next few days.

Finally, a quick reminder that homework is due on a Monday and Seesaw should be used to submit any work. There are a few children that are not up to date with their homework and could I ask you to encourage them to do their best to catch up with any outstanding work as soon as they can. Thank you.

I hope that you all have a safe and relaxing weekend.

Mr. Morgan.
