    P6 Mr Sinclair 

Hello and welcome to our class section of the Holy Rosary website. We have had a great year so far with so much happening in our class, in our year group and throughout the school. 

Shared Education

This term our class have been taking part in Shared Education with a P6 class from Botanic Primary School. This has been a great experience for everyone involved and has helped us to learn more about persuasive writing and the importance of working together positively. 

P6 weekly activities and successes

We have a wide range of activities to enjoy every week in P.6. We have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays, we have ICT lessons on Wednesdays, we have Spanish on Mondays and Chinese lessons every Thursday.

For PE this term we went Swimming in the Queens PEC and have a choice of Netball, Gaelic or Basketball on a Tuesday afternoon. In our class we also have talented musicians and choir members who have sang at a number of events. We also have a number of pupils from our class representing the various sports teams in the school, including Netball, Gaelic and Cross Country.

Numeracy

We love learning with i-Pads and have been using Jungle Coins, Jungle Time and Jungle Fractions to support learning in Numeracy this term as well as practical and game based learning.

World Around Us/Literacy/ICT

In World Around Us we produced diary entires on the life and living conditions in Ireland during The Great Irish Famine. In Term 2 we will be learning about the Titanic. We enjoyed learning about Natural Disasters around the world and have learnt a lot about the importance of water and saving water.

On iPads we use an app called 'Showbie' to upload our amazing learning logs on our topics. Our class have really enjoyed doing 'Learning Logs' for homework and have produced some amazing work through a variety of ways to showcase our learning on The Famine, Water and Christmas. We have enjoyed presenting these to the class using Airplay on the interactive screen while taking part in peer evaluative feedback to analyse each other's work.

Religion

In Religion we have been learning about the parables of Jesus and most recently Advent. We also use Religion time to give pupils the chance to share their different cultural and faith experiences with the class. 

Rights Respecting School & Awards

In our class we have been learning about children's rights and what we can do to make sure everyone gets the rights they deserve. In our class we have a ' Star of the Day', a 'Star of the Week' and a 'Star of the Month', to reward positive behaviour.  We have monthly Key Stage assembly awards which recognise consistent progress and effort. With so much great work going on it has been tough to choose winners- congratulations to all the winners so far!

 

We have lots of events and exciting things to look forward to in the next few months, so keep checking our page to see what fun events we are involved in!
