Super Sixes

P6A & B were very happy to welcome P6C up at JGPS today to show them where we have been based over the past few months. We spent some time playing football and rounders in the Bruntsfield Links and generally enjoying some fresh air before heading back in for some lunch (our last at JGHS).

It was great to see the three classes all playing together and working in different teams. And although we’ve really enjoyed our adventure up at JGPS, we’re very much looking forward to being reunited again after the holidays.

A huge thank you to JGPS for being so welcoming to us all. 😊


Learning to Classify Angles

This week we have been learning about angles in 2D shape. In this lesson P6C used their knowledge of classifying angles by labelling the angles of the shape on their desk. They then used protractors to measure these angles. They all were very successful and enjoyed being allowed to write on the desks.

Learning to calculate area in 6A

Over the past couple of weeks P6A have been developing their knowledge and understanding of area and perimeter. In this particular lesson we had a bit of fun drawing on the tables but don’t worry, no tables were harmed in the process! 😊

Nice and clean again 😊

Children’s Parliament Visit P6C

Pupils in Primary 6C had a wonderful experience working with staff from the Children’s Parliament. The children will be interviewing candidates for two of their the positions on Monday and Tuesday. Today we thought about what skills staff members would need and we learnt what interview skills you need.

Baking (part 2)

Yesterday the pupils in P6A worked collaboratively to independently bake cookies and brownies (I was on oven and washing up duty!)

Today they decorated their creations, which are now ready to be sold at the Christmas Fair tomorrow. Come and get yours before they’re all gone!!

Brilliant baking in P6A 👩‍🍳👨‍🍳

Today the pupils in P6A put their reading and maths skills to the test with a spot of baking. After being split into random groups, the kids were given a recipe for either brownies or cookies, which they then had to work as a team to produce. Despite two very different brownie mixtures, one group with double the amount of cookies, and some left over ingredients which should have been used, the kids did brilliantly!! We had a little taste test and I can confirm that they are delicious. Tomorrow’s task is to decorate their creations, which will then be passed over to the Christmas Fair for the bake sale.

A huge well done, P6A. 👏🏻

Perfect Pizzas

A big well done and thank you to Ollie, Matthew and Reuben who gave up their time on a Sunday to make us all some delicious pizza. The boys have just earned their Chief Scout’s Silver Award at Cubs, and are working towards getting their cooking badge to add to their impressive collection. A big thumbs up from all of us- the pizzas also came in very handy during our numeracy work on fractions!
