Primary 6 - Home and Online Learning

***UPDATE 30th March***

Hello P6!  Welcome to Week 2!

How’s it going so far?!  It’s very strange not going into school every day, isn’t it?  Are you missing it, yet?! 

What did you learn last week?  Have a wee think to yourself.  Did you learn any new skills at home?  I’ve learnt how to make pancakes (yum), a new crochet stitch and how to look after a big parrot!  I’ve also been revising my skills of doing the laundry and ironing, and improving my tidying talents!

I’m sure all your mums and dads are doing a fantastic job of keeping you busy and gradually getting through the home learning packs.  Don’t forget to get in touch at the P6 Helpdesk on if you need any help! 

The most important thing is to keep revising the basics – knowing your times tables inside out (and upside down!), practicing the four calculations (+, -, x and ÷) and challenging yourself to do more complex ones.  Keep up your reading, too – explain a chapter to someone after you’ve read it; talk about how the main character feels; look up any words that you don’t know and use them in your own sentence. 

Here’s some games and websites that you might find useful:
