Once again there will be a family (homework) task that we would ask you to support your child/children with. Towards the end of the term the children will be invited to share the products of these family tasks at our Sharing Assembly, to celebrate, inform and inspire the other pupils.
We are collecting materials for loose parts play in our playground. Loose parts are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, and taken apart and put back together in multiple ways. The children play with these materials and it allows children to be creative, cooperative and have lots of different experiences.
We are looking for donations of the following materials-
Bottle tops (in a plastic bag), ropes, empty clean tubs and tins, wheels, pieces of pipe, ball pit balls, pots and pans, planks of wood, stumps of wood.
Please donate any of these things if you have them at home and no longer use them. There will be 2 clean green wheelie bins outside the main entrance and any donations can be put in these bins. Loose parts is about using materials that are available to us. We are also planning to ask local businesses.
To ensure that P6 enjoy their full 2 hours of physical activity per week, we are enjoying a range of “5-a-Day” activity sessions in class. These support the twice weekly P.E. sessions the pupils have with our P.E. specialist.
P6 had a wonderful visit from the Red Note Ensemble, who are touring Scotland this month. They are all accomplished professional musicians who use their music to tell stories which inspire us to imagine journeys. What an amazing opportunity to have live music played just for us!
