P6 2021-2022: Mrs Millar
Classroom assistants: Miss G Reid
Welcome to our P6 page!
As you can imagine, P6 is a very busy year – in all aspects of the school curriculum.
Alongside our core subjects of Literacy, Numeracy and ICT, we cover a number of very interesting topics.
During the first half of term one, we learnt all about the Vikings. This was a fantastic topic which was enjoyed by everyone – with the highlight being our ‘Viking Day’ where we came to school in costume, discovered the joys of archery, designed shields and jewellery, played a traditional Viking board game and enjoyed some ‘Viking’ food.
Our next topic has been ‘Natural Disasters’ which we have all found very interesting. We have looked at volcanoes, avalanches, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes and meteor strikes. This topic has allowed us to study some history as we looked at the story of Vesuvius and Pompeii. We also took a case study of an avalanche in Italy and studied that.
We are looking forward to learning about other topics in 2022 which will include Inventions and Inventors and Space.
In P6 we are Buddies to our P1 friends! This is a wonderful job and one we are all very proud of. Once a week, we meet our Buddies outside and spend time with them, helping them with parts of their curriculum, going for walks and playing games with them. We look forward to growing our bonds with the P1s over the course of P6 and P7.
In P6 we follow the PATHS programme and, this year, we are also doing the P6 Roots of Empathy programme.
Things are going to get extra busy after Christmas as we prepare for our Key Stage 2 production of ‘Pirates of the Curry Bean’. We will also be heading off on a residential trip to Ganaway in March and we can’t wait. Come back to our page for loads of pictures of what we will be getting up to then.
Regular updates and weekly Class Focus Sheets are distributed to each year group via their Class Dojo page.
