P4 Homework 30/08/16
Please Note: Homework is distributed on a Tuesday and should be handed in on a Monday. However, some reading groups will have to read every day and their reading homework will be changed on a daily basis.
Spelling- Week 1) aw and oo
We will focus on the same sound for two weeks- additional words will be added next week.
Gorillas ( aw ) sound
Pandas (oo) sound
Wolves (oo) sound
Words in jotters
- Write words three times and repeat them, noticing the tricky words and how they sound different. All groups have * tricky * words.
- Write a sentence for each word.
- Complete one Spell Well activity.
Purple and Orange – See new books and bookmark daily.
Red Yellow and Green- Comprehension worksheet “Public Transport” – to be completed for Monday 5th September.
Events this week:
Monday – A visiting theatre group will perform ‘Oliver Twist’ to the whole school.
Tuesday and Thursday – PE
Wednesday – Meet the Teacher – 3:30 – 4pm. A chance to drop in with your child, see the classroom and have an informal chat.
‘Show and Tell’ – Children may bring in items of interest- maybe souvenirs from holiday, medals, certificates or items related to topic work. I’m trying to discourage children bringing in toys.
Everyone has reading and spelling homework. I have sent home work in a clear homework bag unless your child handed in their green folder from last year.
Spelling – I have sent home a sheet with SIX weeks worth of spelling lists. I have dated the top of each list, clearly indicating when each one is to be learned. This week, the sound focus is ‘sh‘. I have also sent home a grid of spelling activities which are basically online games, jotter work and quick revision games which need nothing. If you cannot access the spelling games online, do not worry as your child will play these games in school ICT time anyway. Use the other choices to practise the spelling list.
When will my child get a spelling test?
We ‘test’ spelling through the dictation of sentences and so, the dictation of List 1 will take place next Monday, 5th September. So, your child has a whole week to learn their spelling words.
Everyone gets a new book this week, following on from where they left off in Primary One 🙂 . I’ll put in markers to guide you as to how much to read and when.
Thanks for your support; hope to meet you on Wednesday.
A warm welcome back to all our pupils, parents and staff and a very big welcome to all our new Primary 1 pupils and parents. We have had a very positive start to the new school term with the children and staff all looking refreshed and ready to learn!
