Welcome to P6 with Miss Findlay.
Primary 6 Room 11 have settled in well to Primary 6 and are showing improvements in their focus during learning. This in turn is demonstrating success across their learning.
They have been developing new strategies in Numeracy to support understanding of addition, subtraction and multiplication. Some of the strategies they have been using are bridging, partitioning and using the grid method.
In Literacy they have been working on strategies in reading to help develop understanding of the book, for example, metalinguistics, main points and summarising.
We have focussed on discussions based around skills and this supported the children and their understanding of what skills they need to develop for their dream job.
In PE the children have been building up their fitness by working hard on station activities, such a shuttle runs and star jumps as well as playing number football.
In Spanish the children have been learning to introduce themselves and hold a short conversation.
Here are some of the things that the children have said about Primary 6 so far:
“So far I have enjoyed P6 a lot, especially the speed grid for multiplication” Ethan
“In P6 I enjoy spelling and handwriting. Spelling is much harder and handwriting helps me to join up my handwriting.” Carmen
“So far I have liked number football, summarising, partitioning, art and all literacy. Right now I am enjoying our book called Farm Boy” Olivia
“So far P6 is going good. I am enjoying Literacy, Numeracy and PE.” Blair
“I am starting to understand P6 and the harder work we have to do. I love the writing as we are learning to write in more detail and with better vocabulary.” Sophie
