We had a fantastic trip to Parliament last week. We enjoyed our tour and then had a walk up the Royal Mile and visited the Museum of Childhood.
Here are P6′s names in Chinese. The class have had fun practising writing these symbols.
Lewis made a fact file at home.
The Tangram is a dissection puzzle consisting of seven flat shapes. The objective of the puzzle is to form a specific shape using all seven pieces, which may not overlap. It was originally invented in China.
P5 and 6 are embarking on the Charades Theatre production of The Legend of King Loth. This is a musical and the children will be singing in groups. Over the next few weeks we will be practising for a final performance which will take place on the 9th November. We will make invitations for families to come and watch the show.
P6 are Group C: Lords & Ladies / The Witches. This is a challenging role but we are confident that we are up for it!
The Charades Theatre representatives have visited to speak to us about the show and have gone through the songs with us, showing us some good (and fun!) exercises to help with our singing.

Primary 6 have been using Vokis, a fun and interesting way to present our learning.
We have been reading and studying Coraline by Neil Gaiman. We created characters based on the story using our Voki avatar. We typed a short piece of text based on what we felt a chosen character’s thoughts and feelings were in the story and our Voki could then speak “in character”.

We used our numeracy, problem solving and design skills to make and play a game called “Nop”. We divided A4 card into 12 equal pieces and then we were free to decorate our cards any way we liked. There are a lot of very artistic people in our class! Here are some photos of us making and playing the game in pairs. We might have a Nop tournament…
