P5H Learning at Home 26.06.20

Good morning P5H

How do it get to the end of the session? It has been a busy and very different year but we have been so impressed at the way you have carried on and kept going. We have loved reading your work, hearing your stories and seeing photos. Chatting to you on Teams has been lovely. We’d  also like to say a huge thank you to all your parents who have helped with your learning this term. What a great team!

We are looking forward to seeing you on Teams at 11 am with your quiz question ready! 

Have a great summer! See you in August!

Tuesday 23rd June – Transition Day and Meet the Teacher!

Good morning everyone!

As you will now know, I (Mrs Jones) will be your new teacher in Primary 6! 🙂

I am really looking forward to meeting you all properly after the summer holidays and starting Primary 6 together.  You may have seen me around school (I taught P4J this year) but to get to know a little more about me I will be adding a short video to Teams today so keep an eye out! If you have any questions that you would like to ask me, feel free to post them on Teams and I will try my best to answer them. 🙂

We will be moving into a new classroom for Primary 6. You may recognise the room – it was Miss Fotheringham and P6F’s classroom in the top area this year. This is a picture of what our new classroom looks like at the moment, but it will look a little different in August.

There are several transition activities for you to complete today. I hope that you have fun doing them.

Preparing for Primary 6

To prepare for our first day in Primary 6, there are two tasks to complete. Open the following document to access the tasks and follow the instructions: Preparing for Primary 6

Class Name

We need to choose a class name for Primary 6. As has happened in the past, we will choose two words. The first word should begin with the letter ‘J’ and should be a word that means something positive. The second word should also begin with J. I will put a link to a form on Teams where I have given some suggestions for the name. Please select your choices or give a suggestion of your own. I will choose the class name based on the most popular suggestions. Please select your choices by Wednesday morning at 10am.


So that I can get to know you a little bit better before the start of term, you next task is to write a letter. You should email the letter to the admin email address or submit via the class assignment on Teams. Open the following document for instructions: Letter to Teacher

Lockdown Word Art

Open the pdf below. It has instructions on how to create a piece of lockdown word art. Step 7 gives you instructions on how to share your picture, but this was created for a different school. The best way to share your work with me is to email it to the admin team and ask them to forward it on. Alternatively, you could upload it to the assignment box on Teams.

Football Mystery

Download the pdf below titled ‘Football Maths Mystery Game’.  By completing the tasks, you will practise a range of maths skills and solve the Mystery of the Sabotaged Football Kit!

David Hockney Art Activity

We are all missing the outdoors and nature during lockdown. Let’s bring the outdoors inside. David’s landscapes are famed for bold lines & bright colours. Find an image of a landscape you like. You might want to go for a walk and take a photo to help you. Alternatively, it may be from a place you love or inspires you.

Use whatever materials you have or create an electronic piece of art with an app. Please submit on Assignments with the following filename structure- Name- Class- Title of Painting. I will then create a gallery on your blog.

Play around and experiment. I look forward to your inspiring artwork.

I hope that you all enjoy the activities today. Please say hello on Teams and feel free to ask any questions that you may have 🙂

Have a lovely summer break when it comes and I look forward to meeting you all properly in August!

You can be creative with the ideas outside and inside. Remember to make sure an adult knows what your are doing, that the area and surface is safe and that you are wearing suitable footwear.

Have fun!
