Welcome to Primary 6!
My name is Miss Dale and I am the P6 teacher at Damhead Primary School. We work really hard in P6 and we are almost the oldest in the school! We study topics like Bridges, The Vikings and Europe! We enjoy learning about these exciting topics throughout the year. We also continue to work hard in Literacy and Numeracy, integrating ICT and some outdoor classroom throughout the year. In P6 we enjoy swimming lessons from September – December.
Watch out for us here, on Seesaw and on the school’s Facebook page. If you want to contact me, my email address is email@example.com
Term 1 in Primary 6!
We have been really excited to be back at school and settled into P6. We are almost the oldest in the school and have become great role models for the younger children. We are preparing for a busy term until Christmas and are ready for the challenges ahead.
Our World Around Us topic for this term is ‘Bridges’. We will be studying famous bridges, recognising the importance of bridges and deciding on the best place for a bridge. We will even studied a case story called ‘The Disappearance of the Foyle Bridge’.
We will be studying explanation texts and using our bridges knowledge, and will get ready to become engineers and explain how to build a bridge. We are very excited to build some model bridges of our own and test them this term. Our class novel is ‘Wonder’ which everyone is really enjoying, the message in the book is ‘Choose Kind’. Our class novel is linked to some of our PATHS activities where we have been learning about different feelings and what makes a good friend.
In numeracy we have been working hard revising our place value, number bonds, addition and subtraction. We have used our RUCSAC method to solve a range of different mathematical problems. We have been trying our very best to learn all of our times tables both in school and at home! In P6 we will also be revising topics such as; money, time and carroll/tree/venn diagrams.
We have a busy term ahead in P6 and we are all looking forward to the challenges ahead. I will keep you updated on our learning journey through Seesaw but if you have any concerns, please feel free to send me a message or give me a call.
