The teachers encourage all children to contribute to discussion across the curriculum and we realise that everyone's opinion in important. We enjoy and are actively involved in role play, drama, assemblies, group work and through these experiences we hope to become competent speakers and listeners.

 

We understand how important reading is in Primary 6. We have a great selection of exciting novels which we use as our group readers. We also use accelerated reading to challenge ourselves and we already have 3 millionaires in Oct 2018. Every day we engage in 10 minutes silent reading.

 

We try to put all our punctuation and grammar skills into practice to produce interesting, imaginative pieces of writing. Not only are we encouraged to edit our own work but we have actively engage in self and peer assessment.

 

In September our first topic is report writing use a wide of digital media to inspire our writing. The school even had a natural disaster in the playground. Check out our wonderful reports!
