Another busy week in P6 comes to a close. It was a week of successes and not just for some areas of learning.
Five members of the class attended a Hockey Festival on Wednesday and returned with a silver medal. They scored 17 goals and only conceded 1. What a fantastic achievement! The class welcomed them back with lots of smiles and congratulations on their success.
In Science, our crystals have not been so successful and have disappeared! The class have been very disappointed that their crystals stopped growing, then disappeared. Researching online has led us to the conclusion that our solution was not strong enough and this reversed the growth. However, as every failure is a learning opportunity, we will now try our experiment again but this time with more accurate measurements.
In Drama, our Joseph preparations are continuing well and many of the children are almost script free when they are acting. Mrs Baxter is continuing to improve their singing and Mrs Hay has worked super hard over the weekend to sew what seemed like a never ending amount of costumes. Can I ask that the children bring in a carrier bag at the start of next week so that we can store their costume safely within it. The performance is planned for the morning of Wednesday the 1st of April. With a starting time of about 9.30am. We hope you can make it.
In Numeracy and Digital Literacy, we are continuing to look at budgeting of money. Excel spreadsheets are being created to keep a track of monthly household finances - just in case you were wondering why they might have come home and asked how much you earn!
In Literacy, this week we celebrated World Book Day. On Thursday, we studied where Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, got his inspiration from and how he sets out his text and illustrations. We had a bit of fun writing our own version and shared these with class. Today, it was fantastic to see so many of the class dressed up. It was hard to recognise some of them.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
Mr Morgan & P6
