P6 Construction Challenge

This afternoon P6 took on an engineering challenge: to construct a European landmark using just newspaper and tape. In mixed class groups they set about selecting a landmark and coming up with a plan for its construction. We think they did a fab job and were very impressed with the teamwork on display. Well done, P6. 👏🏻


Maths Week Scotland. P6A

Despite a busy week this week, today we found a bit of time to take our maths work outdoors. We’ve been developing and consolidating our knowledge of multiples and factors recently so decided to play a little hopscotch… with a twist. Instead of simply counting the numbers, we used the game as an opportunity to practise finding the multiples of numbers we find more challenging. The wind made balancing a little tricky, but we enjoy an extra challenge in P6A 😀

Cycling Adventures in P6A

P6A had a fab day today putting their bike handling skills to the test on a cycling adventure to Colinton. We took off from school and cycled through The Meadows, along the Union Canal (stopping off for some bramble picking to refuel) until finally reaching our destination: Spylaw Park. All in all the kids managed a 10 mile round trip, which is very impressive, and were an absolute joy to be around.

Thanks for a great day out ❤️

(It was actually ten miles- I forgot to restart the recording- whoops!)

Bikeability in 6A

P6A enjoyed another fab day of cycling today, made even better by the glorious sunshine ☀️

After practising their road skills in the morning, the afternoon was spent adventuring along the innocent railway.

Next week (Wednesday for us) we’ll be heading for Colinton along the Union Canal. Practising shifting gears and signalling at junctions will be of huge benefit.

Well done kiddies 👏🏻
