Good Evening Everyone,
I’ve had a lovely first, half week in Primary 6/7. As the children may, or may not, have told you Miss Crew and I have been very busy carrying out assessments with some of the children. As we explained to them, assessments are an important part of the learning process. As teachers, assessments inform us of what the children know already and what they may need to work on. This informs our planning and ensures we provide your child with the best possible learning experience.
However, we managed to have some time to explore our new topic in a little more depth. First, we looked at some famous Scottish landmarks and worked in groups to match facts about their location, height, when it was opened/built and what they were made from. This was initial look at this area of our topic and the work is to be continued.
Next, the children were set a personal research task to remind themselves of some of the basic facts about Scotland as a country. This was an independent task and the children had to present their research using a method of their choice. This is still a work in progress for some children, hopefully there’ll be some time to complete these next week.
Have a lovely weekend everyone,
See you all next week.
