Primary 6 have been very busy this week with our online learning.
Maths – The pupils have been learning division and how to deal with remainders. They’ve used Division Wheels, Division Jigsaws, Division Dominoes. They’ve also tried Division Word Problems to add breadth to their learning. They can see the relationship between multiplication and division more clearly now.
Scottish Wars of Independence Topic – Primary 6 have done a lot of fun work with their topic this week. Imaginative Writing – this took the form of an adventure story of a hero in the year 1315 in Bannockburn whilst a war was raging. The pupils were given a starter idea for the story and they produced some great writing for this. Report Style Writing– this took the form of assuming the role of a Newsround reporter interviewing Robert The Bruce about his life. Portrait Art– the pupils were asked to look at various images of Robert The Bruce from the internet, money, images from movies, history books and art galleries. They then followed an online portrait art lesson to learn tips and techniques and then produced their own Robert the Bruce portraits with fantastic results.
Collage Art – the pupils were asked to create an outline profile of themselves and fill the inside of it with collage art – cut out images and words from magazines that hopefully represented themselves. The children were given extra support by watching an online art lesson for this. What a talented group P6 are. The results were excellent.
Health and Wellbeing – the children used a map of Broxburn to help plan a safe cycle route. Consideration was to be given to roads, canal and pedestrians. Again, great ideas and problem solving from Primary 6.
Well done Primary 6! We are very proud of your dedication to completing your tasks and thank you to our supportive parents too.
