Term 2 in Primary Six

Please find attached a link to Primary Six’s overview of what we will be learning this term. A reminder that with our time at the Craggs sport centre being over, PE will now take place on Thursdays and Fridays. Children are expected to have their PE kit with them on these days.

This term primary six will be continuing to share their learning, with a particular emphasis on articulating what they have learnt and how they know. To this end we now have a ‘Sharing Our Success’ wall in the classroom. Children are encouraged to place any work they are particularly proud of in their individual folder on the wall. Over the year your child should build up a record of work and learning that they are proud of. Please ask your child what is currently in their folder and what they were learning.

Thank you!

Fruitmarket pop-up at Waverley Mall

Royal Mile continues to work in partnership with the Fruitmarket Art Gallery and Garcia Foundation. Last week, the Fruitmarket welcomed a group of P5, 6 and 7 pupils to a workshop to help design their new Gallery space. They are currently renovating this and operated the workshop from a space within Waverley Mall. We had the opportunity to use various craft materials to help us with our designs. We then used ICT to create short animations to bring our ideas to life. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all.



The Fruitmarket will be running free drop-in Sunday workshops in this space over the coming weeks. Pupils are more than welcome to attend. Information below:

Christmas Markets and Writing Lesson

To support our writing this week, P5 and P6 took a walk through the Princes Street Gardens Christmas markets on Monday afternoon.

We have been working on developing a setting description. We are aiming to include ambitious vocabulary and senses into our writing so we paid specific attention to what we could see, hear, taste, smell and feel while we were there.

RSHP Information for Parents

Please find the attached information sheet about Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood education programme primary six will be starting shortly.

We will start by looking at friendship to tie in with Anti-Bullying week. In this block of activities, children will explore friendship and will be encouraged to think about
what they would want from a friend and what kind of friend they can be. The children will explore the positive impact of friendship, as well as some of the challenges that come up in managing relationships. Children can worry about friendships, and there can be fall-outs and arguments between the children. We want to create a class where there is a positive atmosphere and where children get on. We want children to be able to manage the ups and downs of friendships. We will be helping children understand that they do not need to be best friends with everyone, but they can be friendly and kind. As many of the children will be online and may be interacting with people
online we will also look at why and how an online friendship may be different from a friend you know and meet at school or out playing. If you have any concerns about your child’s relationships and friendships, please do talk with us at school.
