Just to begin with a reminder that this week is a short week as it ends with the ‘September Weekend’– so school finishes on Thursday at 3:15pm and resumes on Tuesday 19th September.
Spelling – List 3 ‘th‘ . Everyone is working very hard at home and handing in some great spelling homework- well done! Please try to complete spelling homework by Thursday if possible.
Reading – Please send your child’s reading folder in every day. Please also check the ‘post-it’ note sent home with each book for updates.
Numeracy – On Wednesday, a sheet of sums will be sent home. This has ‘+1 and -1’ sums on it. Please cut this sheet up into individual flash cards and practise with your child so that they become very quick at knowing +1/-1. Also use the language ‘ What is one more/one less than’. If your child has mastered this, ‘up-level’ it by saying ‘Okay, if 4 + 1 =5, what is 14 +1, what is 54 + 1 , what is 94 + 1’ and so on…
Topic– We have been thinking about the current UK harvest but also about where our food comes from. We had Fyffes bananas during the week and watched a video about the production journey these bananas take to get to our shores.
A request…..could you possibly check labels of food products you are using this week and send the labels in with ‘Country of Origin’ on? We can use these labels to plot on our large world map where their food has come from!
PE– Wednesday and Thursday
Afternoon snack – some parents have requested that P2 children have an extra wee snack for the longer afternoons. We do have afternoon fruit from Tuesdays onwards, which we cut into portions and this usually lasts us a couple of days but if you want to send something extra in, please feel free to. I would suggest something like a small packet of raisins, a small piece of fruit or a small biscuit.
Thanks for your continued support,
