P6D – Teacher update 26/3/20

Dear Primary 6D!

I hope you are all doing okay at home and are keeping yourselves busy! I have been looking at Sumdog and I am so happy to see that some of you have logged on and started the Spelling, Reading and Maths challenges that I have set for you. Well done!

There will be some days that you don’t have a lot of motivation to do your tasks, this is okay too. Here are some of my top tips:

  • Be helpful – find out where you can help around your house
  • Be kind – try and do something kind for someone each day while you’re at home.
  • Stay active – stay as active as you can, fresh air always helps. Try timing yourself running for 15 minutes or walking outside for 30.
  • Learn about what interests you – learn how to make Mac and Cheese and write it down, learn the lyrics to a Billie Eilish song and recreate it, create a new YouTube video different to those you have done so far and write to someone teaching them how to make their own, learn a new art style, draw cats! Make a chess board and play! And read, read, read!

New activity: Write a letter to the NHS thanking them for their hard work during this time or create a poster for the NHS or video yourself thanking the NHS.

You are all doing so well, and I know that you are all trying your best. I am always thinking of you and missing you all so much! I have included your last ‘Pupil of the Week’ certificate to remind you of just how respectful, ambitious, resilient and empathetic you all are.

Keep up this great attitude. I will speak to you all again soon.

Miss Dunne.

P6P Teacher update 26/3/20

Hi P6P!

I hope you are all well, staying safe and having fun! It has been a very strange week not seeing you all every day. I am missing all your smiley faces!

I hope you have been enjoying the home learning tasks in your packs. Remember though, tasks such as helping cook a meal, tidying up, playing a board/card game with your family or reading a book are all learning too!

I have loved seeing how many of you have already taken part in this week’s Sumdog challenge! I will make sure to put up a new one starting on Monday – it might even have some more questions in it!

I am sure that by now, you must be pretty bored of doing TikTok dances, so why don’t you try searching ‘The Body Coach’ on youtube, and doing a PE workout? Remember sweating is good! It means you’re working hard!!

In our class, we are all very good at thinking about how we can take care of our planet. On Saturday, it’s Earth Hour. This is a global event where people all over the world switch off their lights at 8.30pm for 1 hour, to help look after Planet Earth. Why don’t you give it a try with your family?

I miss you all! Keep being kind and make sure you help others when you can!
