St. Margaret’s R.C. Primary School

P6 Mrs Mallon

Primary 6 Class Blog December 2017
We have been very busy this month. In
maths we are learning about money and budgeting
which will help us with our Christmas enterprise.
We’ve been learning how to play volleyball and
basketball. We have been practising for our P6
assembly which went very well. In literacy we have
been learning how to create suspense in our story
writing. We are looking forward to the festive
season and have already been to perform Christmas
songs in Edinburgh for STV2. It has been a very
exciting month!
Primary 6 Class Blog October 2017
October has been an exciting month
in P6. We had our final sailing lesson and
finished our science lessons at St Augustine’s.
We finally solved the murder mystery using the
skills we learned. In literacy we wrote some
spooky ghost stories based in Edinburgh and
some of our stories were entered into a
competition! We have started a new topic in
maths which is learning about money. We have
learned that the maths skills we learn in the
classroom can be used in the real world which
makes our learning worthwhile. In Art, we have
recreated the work of two famous Spanish
artists, Miro and Picasso. We also had a visit
from Fischy Music which was great fun. We
learned new songs about emotions and also got
to sing some of our favourites. The month ended
on a high with the Spooky Walk and a Halloween
party. P6 would like to say a massive thank you
to the Parent Council for organising this.
Primary 6 Class Blog September 2017
We are very excited to be starting primary 6 in a
brand new classroom. Our new classroom has comfy
sofas, swivel chairs, a coffee table, high stools and
beanbags. We also have two brand new teachers. Mrs
Mallon on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and
Fridays and Ms Paxton on a Wednesday.
Primary 6 went to the Edinburgh Book Festival to see
Lari Don. She told us about a story that she wrote and
inspired us to be creative with our writing. We
imitated the work of Pablo Picasso in Art. We used
Cubism to create faces and used lots of colours.
We also attended a Clusters Games event with P5 at
St. Augustine’s with children from P5 and P6 from
all primary schools that feed into St Augustine’s.
We are looking forward to sailing for 6 weeks. We met
the Queen at the Official Opening of the Queensferry
Bridge, walked across the brand new bridge.
This week we have had science at St. Augustine’s and
will have the official opening of our new hall on
