Mr Kane and Mr Cairns - P6/7

Welcome to Primary 6/7 with Mr Kane and Mr Cairns

 


P6/7 have been working hard in Term 1.

We have been consolidating and extending our mathematical knowledge in Place Value with a focus on mental maths together with working to strengthen our foundation in times tables. Ask your child about ‘Challenge 24’. Can you take them on?

The class have been in the pursuit of scientific breakthroughs and have observed, undertaken and recorded various experiments and undertaken a Powerful Plants project to help them develop their research, teamwork and presentation skills.
Our Enterprise Topic is ‘Board Games’ and much of our learning has flowed from this. We have made use of the indoor and outdoor environments and applied our Higher Order Thinking Skills.

We have written imaginative stories based on Cluedo and further developed the skill of self and peer assessment to edit and improve our work.
Primary 6/7 have also created their own version of Guess Who?, followed instructions to create a Monopoly Board and are now working in Project Teams to design, develop and launch a new board game. Throughout this challenge, there is an emphasis on the application of their numeracy, literacy, expressive arts, technology and health and well-being skills.

All parents and carers are invited to our Showcase Event at 1:30pm on Friday 13th October.

We have also had visits from Barclays Bank and HMRC and participated in Maths Week and Safety Week.

We thank you for your continued support.

Mr. Kane / Mr. Cairns
