Reading will be as usual although they still have the same book as last week at the moment because we didn’t do reading until Wednesday.
Sumdog: Mrs Hinton has kindly set up Sumdog for P1 to use. This is website to support numeracy and maths. Every child has been given their username and password to access this. Initially they will do a diagnostic exercise. The children have been told to type an answer even if they don’t know what they have to do. This will open other games for them. I will also set homework via Sumdog.
Reminder that next week is Health Week and we have a wide variety of activities set up next week. Sports Day is on Monday afternoon. Their is a letter in their bags about Bike Breakfast on Friday next week – please return the slip ASAP if they wish to attend.
1: Write spelling words 3 times in neat columns.
2: Write a paragraph using all your spelling words.
3: We have now covered all the times tables in Primary 5. Make up your own game that would help other children to practise their times tables. This could be a board game, an outdoor game or an oral game. You will be given time in class to demonstrate your game and hopefully we can play each other’s games.
4: As we are doing assembly on Friday, make sure you practise any drama scripts, song words, poems that you have.
As our Assembly is about school camp, all children have been asked to bring ‘outdoor’ wear as their costume and welly boots if they have them. They could bring joggy bottoms, T-shirt, raincoat etc. They will need this on Friday.
This week, there will be one week’s worth of homework and then next week we will have special health week homework. Sorry again for last week’s mix up.
Reading– on reading book.
Spelling-Spelling words are in jotters. Please look, cover, write and check twice. There is also a spelling graffiti worksheet to complete.
Maths- Continue with learnits. Please practise times tables. If your child is already secure with 2/5/10 then move on. Knowing these will really help with the work we are doing in class. Practise any way you like. I have posted a link to some games if you wish to use them.
Some have a subtraction worksheet in jotters. If you have this please do not worry about the times tables work…..unless you want to 🙂
Homework due-Friday 2nd June
Homework this week:
Spelling List 36 – ‘aw’
Reading – will get this back on track as last week it ground to a halt due to the shorter week and other events!
Numeracy – Sumdog Challenge – Money to 20p. Some children are still confused as to how to work out change from 10 and 20p.
Topic – continues to be Local Study. This week we’ll look at Loanhead; its history and how it looks today.
PE– Tuesday and Thursday this week.
**Reminder**– The following week ( W/B 5th June) is Health Week. Sports Day will be held on Monday June 5th, 1-3pm, weather permitting. More details to follow.
I must apologise for the homework mix up. I am very confused with dates this week! I have given out one week’s worth of homework because I thought health week was next week. Of course, it isn’t until the 5th. I will provide some more homework next week before our special health week homework.
Letters should be in bags today about summer fair arrangements. Please look out for them.
I will hopefully see many of you at parents evening.
Miss Prior 🙂
IMPORTANT! Please remember P1 are on a trip on Tuesday23rd May. They must where school uniform and have a packed lunch unless you have requested one from the school. Please make sure your child has suitable footwear and ‘weather’ clothing – If you wish to put sun cream (just in case)then please do.
