This week we learned how to use Powerpoint. We used our imagination to create a powerpoint based on our class novel Holes by Louis Sachar. We give it a 5/5.
This we learned about new kinds of shapes. We found it a bit difficult because we did not understand some of the words like ‘arrowhead’.
This week we enjoyed art, we made Christmas cards. Ella’s one had ‘nollaig Chirdheil’, that’s Merry Christmas is Gaelic. Cole’s one had snowmen on it. We give it 1000000/5.
Our targets are to try not to get distracted in class and to always try our best!

What is going well in P6a?
Art – making the indian elephant rugs. Everybody made intricate patterns using line and colour. (Maisie)
RME – it was fun to find out different things we’ve not learnt before and it was fun to find out about the Five Pillars of Islam. (Paige)
Adverbs – I liked teaming up with my partner as we were both finding out different things and changing the adverbs and verbs in sentences. (Mia) We watched a powerpoint on the smartboard and had to complete different questions from it with our partners. (Paige)
Maths – subtracting numbers was good. We used number lines and drew our own number lines. (Claire) When we learning about money and budgets we made our own menus with a partner and we planned a meal. We had to find out the prices of the ingredients on the Tesco website and then total the costs and see what changes we had. We had £10 to feed 4 people. (Paige/Mia) My group had a menu card for a cafe and we had to add up what we would order for £5. Then we had £10 to order food for a friend as well, for 2 people. (Maisie)
Natural Disasters – it was good to work with different people. It was fun to do research and taking note to find out new things. Claire was good at finding facts and reading them out from her book. (Claire)
We have enjoyed making 3D packaging, making Christmas cards and doing harder sums!
We would like to get faster at the Daily Mile and improve our writing.
(Darin, Kyle and Mya)
We have also done optical illusion artwork. Have a look…
We have been busy in Primary 6a this week.
Maths – we were learning how negative numbers worked. We had to work with temperatures and lift floors to solve problems with negative numbers. We had to order negative numbers. (Aiden)
We were really good at using the empty numberline to add and subtract. Everyone passed their assessment well. (Bailey)
In topic maths we continued with money. We were planning our meals using menus and websites. We then made receipts to show our shopping, including working out the totals and change.
Art – we designed Christmas cards. We all did different designs and we all finished them to a high standard. People used chalks, felt pens, collage and pencils.
Reading – we used Bloom’s questions that we made last week to explore our reading books. Tasks included drawing and labelling things from the stories, describing parts and characters, finding information and predicting.
We are feeling sad that our friend and classmate Ekhlass is leaving us but we wish her well at her new school.
Caitlin’s learning log
In music we learned a new song called Take Five. I thought that I was good at it because I kept in time with the beat.
I enjoyed our topic, (Natural Disasters), because my partners and I worked well and cooperated well. I think I was good at this because we didn’t argue about who was doing what.
This week in Daily Mile I think I have improved because I can go for way longer than last week, when I only kept going for five minutes.
I think I was good at making a Christmas card because I normally take 3 to 4 days to finish but this year I only took 2 hours.
I’m excited for our Assembly next week. I think I will be very good at speaking at the Assembly. We made banners and models for our group presentations for Assembly and we started to work out what we are going to say. We thought about how to describe each type of natural disaster, what interesting facts we had learned, and the effects of the disasters on buildings, landscape, people and animals. We also watched some Newsround clips to learn more about what’s happening in other parts of the world right now.

Jessica’s Learning Log.
This week in Maths we did money games and multiplying by multiples of 10. In Money we had a café menu and we had £10 or £15 to buy a meal for 4 people.
Some children also learned about negative numbers and how they are used in real life, like in a lift and in a weather forecast.
We have been busy researching our ‘Natural Disasters’ topics, working hard in small groups to gather information to present at our Class Assembly on 29th September.
In Drama we did miming and hot seating. We went into groups and had to act out a dilemma, which the others had to try and guess. I thought my group was amazing!
This week, in P.E., we did badminton skills. We had 3 groups. One of the groups were playing badminton with a partner and then changing partners. We only had 10 seconds to play and then we had to change partners. I thought I was good at badminton.
For Art, we used a lot of different materials and a range of techniques to make elephant images. We had to try to show contrast in our pictures and could really use our imaginations to make our pictures stand out. We were very proud of the finished results.
