P6 Class Newsletter

Term 2

Class Blog Link:

Dear Parents and Carers,

This class newsletter will provide an overview of our learning expectations in each curricular area for the second term. Our class blog will be regularly updated to highlight our weekly learning experiences. We have provided the link to this at the top of the newsletter.

The class will have PE on Monday and Thursday, so we ask that pupils come prepared with their PE kit on those days.

Literacy and English

This term we continue to read our class novel, Wonder by R. J. Palacio. We have started reading this during our reading session and beginning to use a Reciprocal Reading structure. We will work in different groups and take on different roles. These roles are Predictor, Questioner, Clarifier and Summariser. We have been learning the skills and what each role consists of and will begin taking on these roles over the coming weeks.

In our writing sessions, we have been exploring different types of poetry. We will also look at descriptive writing and explore different descriptive writing techniques. We will develop our note taking skills. This will be useful as we begin to research different professions as part of our DYW projects. Pupils will be encouraged to take useful notes as they read and listen to information.

We continue to use wraparound spelling, with each day’s spelling activities focusing on different skills. We focus on a different sound each week and think of different ways to grow our root word.

Numeracy & Maths

Primary 6 will be focusing on money and addition and subtraction this term.

In our addition and subtraction, we will explore a variety of strategies. This will include using partitioning, jump strategy, develop our ability to bridge a decade and will look at more formal written ways to solve calculations.

In money, pupils will focus on understanding the value of different coins and how to record this in pounds and pence. We will also learn to calculate the total of items and change given. We will explore budgets and the terms profit and loss.

On a Friday morning we will continue to develop our mental agility, focusing on times tables and basic facts.

Health and Wellbeing

Physical Education

Pupils will be focusing on social dance and develop their skills in court games.


All P6 profiles are online.  We encourage the pupils to show you their profiles on their Chrome Books regularly.   Pupils maintain 3 sections on a weekly basis: “What stuck with me this week,” “Learning Conversations” and “Wider Achievements.”  Our learning conversations this term will be about aspects of wellbeing.

Modern Languages 


This term we will continue to revise previously taught vocabulary, such as greetings, the weather, numbers, ordering lunches and emotions.


Each Thursday morning, Mrs James will be revising Gaelic greetings, introductions, colours, and numbers.
