# P6T Week Beginning 9/1/18

Welcome back, I hope you all had an enjoyable holiday. We’ve been straight to work on a number of mini projects this week!

PE will be on a Monday and Thursday this term and we will be covering gymnastics and Dance. Please ensure that indoor shoes are in school otherwise muddy outdoor shoes won’t be able to be used on the gymnastic equipment. Thank you.

Our P6 assembly will be just before the February holiday and we are learning about Scotland this term.

This week we started our new class novel: There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom by Louis Sachar.  The book is set in America and we were comparing British English and American English words. We thought about our first impressions of the main character and found supporting evidence in the text.

In Maths we have been learning about area and perimeter.

• We can find the area and perimeter of a rectangle and square
• We are learning to calculate the missing lengths of sides in composite shapes
• calculating the area of composite shapes by breaking it down into smaller, easier shapes.

In our topic we used an atlas to find the location of Scottish towns and cities. We have been researching some cities and islands to make a tourist leaflet.
