Well done to everyone for another successful week of learning.
We have enjoyed all aspects of the curriculum this week and have shared lots in our Reflective Friday discussions, great reflecting P6! We look forward to Group 2 beginning BIke-ability on Monday next week. We have a session both morning and afternoon on Monday and Wednesday and Group 1 will have their final session on Thursday next week. Thank you to our helpers and the staff team for this as we have really enjoyed it! Please remember to revise the Bike-ability Level 1 booklet before your final session (Group 2 will be handed out after starting their sessions on Monday in preparation for Wednesday) to be prepared. Continue to complete Literature Circle reading and roles to be ready for your group and ensure you have all paperwork/books with you on Thursdays for our meetings, thank you. 🙂 Any more toy donations for P5 fundraising to be handed in on Monday please – thanks for these already!
You will hopefully have seen in the last Homelink newsletter that our Parent
Council have organised a Great Big School Clean Up on Saturday 30th March
between 2-4pm as part of the Great British Spring Clean 2019. This is a UK wide
mass-action environmental campaign to cut litter and improve public places but
it also coincides with the Green Buckstone recycling programme which aims to
save ‘hard to recycle’ items from landfill.
The school playground will be open at the main entrance from 2pm on Saturday
30th March for as many volunteers as are able to donate 10 minutes, 1 hour or
more of time to help clear the playground and surrounding areas of litter that
has escaped the various refuse bins around the school. City of Edinburgh
Council will be arriving that afternoon to deliver litter picking kit and will be removing waste from the school
after the litter pick is over at 4pm. Our local councillors are also planning
to attend and members of the Parent Council will be present to co-ordinate this
project. This is an excellent opportunity to help improve the environment on
our doorstep so we hope to see you there.
Please bring with you protective gloves if at all possible (some will be provided by the council), refreshments and perhaps some hand sanitiser! Children must not be unaccompanied and will remain the responsibility of their parent/carer at all times.
Well done for a very successful and busy week in Primary 6! We have enjoyed learning across lots of different curricular areas. Some of us have had some great opportunities this week including visiting a special dinner with Mrs. Imrie for the Wee Sleep Out success – great effort Marco and Felicity who represented us and thanks to Mrs. Imrie for taking us along. Also Group 1 have loved their first Bikeability session and we look forward to the next one next Thursday. Here is our Reflective Friday entry along with some links to the following for possible homework/extra practise at home: Spelling Common Words, Spelling Activity Cards, Daily Rigour from today and some suggestions on the Reflective Friday post for other areas to work on. Thanks for your continued support and contributions towards Parents Evenings and well done P6! Have a great weekend 🙂 Mrs Ling
P6L have had another very busy and successful week! 🙂
Many of us enjoyed representing our school at the Meadows Cross Country event as part of the running club and also at the city-wide P6 Euro-Quiz at the City Chambers. Well done to those representatives who took part! In class we have been working really hard and we had lots of ideas today for our Reflective Friday session. Please enjoy reading at home! Please note that our P6 Bikeability training begins next week – see the letter for details – groupings are attached also for those who are unsure as to their grouping.
