Welcome to the Primary 6 class web page! 

This page will be kept up to date with news of the learning and activities happening in class.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 


This afternoon we partied the day away at the Christmas Party with P5/6 and P7. With our glad rags on we played party games, had a dance and showed off our ceilidh skills!




All ready for our Carol singing this morning with Santa's and Rudolph making an appearance! We sang beautifully at the Institute to a very enthusiastic audience. Bring on Gig number 2 tomorrow!


This term we have been working very hard to develop our dancing skills! With the Day of Dance in November we now are dancing to more popular music. We have our dancing shoes at the ready for any festivities over the holidays!


Today we enjoyed a session of Forest Schools with Mr Johnson and Primary 5/6. We had lots of fun making dens and working in groups to develop our cooperative learning skills. It was very cold but thankfully our toes didn't fall off!


Stars and Constellations

Today we were learning all about Stars, we can now tell you what a constellation is and all about our Star Signs.

Using cocktail sticks and marshmallows we created our star signs!




This week in our topic work we have been looking at Earth and Miss Anderson helped us make Earth models that show the different layers of the Earth's centre. Ask us to tell you all about it!


Health and Wellbeing

 So far this term we have been busy learning all about how to keep a balance diet. Having created our own 'Eat Well' Plates and looked at the nutritional detail on packages, we all know how to eat healthily.

We went on a scavenger hunt for certain nutritional information too!


This year, we have the responsibility of being buddies for the Primary 1 pupils. So far we are loving this new role and we are taking every opportunity possible to help them! We are all incredibly proud of being buddies and really enjoy giving them a hand. The past two weeks we have chosen to help in the P1 classroom during Golden Time.



On Monday (4th September) we had our 'Meet the Teacher' evening, it was lovely to see some of you there. As many of you will have had other commitments, here is a link to the presentation given by Miss MacKinnon.

Hopefully you find it useful, answering any questions you may have.

This is our Class Charter. Over the first few weeks we discussed the Rights of the Child and decided on a few that we think are most important for Primary 6. Having selected these Rights, we then created 'Our Rights Respecting Actions' that we will take care to follow throughout the year.

The Space theme is a link to the class topic with the Rights of the child Articles and Actions as stars, the school values on the planets and we are spacemen along with Miss MacKinnon!




The document below is an up to date overview of what we be doing throughout the year.
