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.

Outdoor Maths Challenge

For maths week all of the classes in the school created a maths fact file about a location on or around the Royal Mile. It would be great if as many people as possible could visit the areas in the fact file. House points will be awarded to those who can visit all of the locations and bring pictures of them visiting on the first day back after holidays.

Thank you to all of those who came along to parents consultations and also to the outdoor maths event during maths week.

Maths week 2019

Welcome to Primary 6

I hope that everyone has had an enjoyable and restful summer.

Now we are back and have had a very busy start to the term, revising place value, learning all about different types of poetry and making a start to our Victorian topic.

There are lots of fun and exciting activities and opportunities coming up, details of these and the overview for the first term (until Christmas) can be found linked below.

We have moved from the homework jotter to a new homework folder. The expectation is that the homework folder will go home every evening and be returned the following day. Children will also be required to record their homework in their homework diaries; this is both to encourage them to develop independence and prepare them for high school. There is a section at the bottom of each week for parents or carers to sign to confirm that homework has been completed and checked at home.

Other important information:

-PE days are currently Thursday and Friday. This will be changed to one longer PE session on a Thursday at the Crags Sport Centre later in the term due to ongoing building works in school). Please ensure that your child comes prepared with a full PE kit on these days. Please also ensure that children are aware jewellery should not be worn during PE lessons.

-Please ensure that your child comes to school with a water bottle.

-Children should ensure that any mobile phones are stored in safe keeping throughout the school day. This is to prevent any loss or damage.

-Children should not bring or use permanent markers while at school, as these can cause damage to clothing and school property.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
