## P3 Homework from 28th November

Primary 3 Homework – Week from 28th November

Thanks for sending back forms for the museum trip next week. If possible we need two more parent helpers. If you think you might be able to come on Thursday 7th then please get in touch.

We are grateful to AOC Archeaology in Loanhead for a fantastic visit last week. It was amazing to learn how these historic treasures are uncovered, and also to handle axe-heads from Ancient Egypt and a Viking bracelet!

Best wishes,

Mr Buchan

Numeracy

We are finishing off money this and moving back onto addition and subtraction. Our aim is to finish the term by extending this into higher numbers than we have worked with so far.

To support this, we are going to look again at place value. Having learned about hundreds, tens and units before we will now include thousands. A valuable game to cement this would be:

It will also be helpful to play + / – again, like we did at the beginning of term. This is where one player says a number while holding up a card that says, “+10” or “-10”, “+100” or “–100” and then the other player has to say the right number in response. To play with 10, 20 and 100 would be a good challenge.

We are moving back onto fiction books for the next few weeks. Pages to read at home will be written down in the grids as usual.

Egyptian Tombs

It’s been great having children showing their tombs in class – some fabulous work! Do let me know if you need resources. A reminder that it’d be great to have these for 5th December (next Tuesday) and that full details are up online tagged for P3.

Spelling

Spelling words to practice this week are:

blue                 June

tube                 tune

rude                 called

people             light

Please could everyone do the usual look, say cover, write and check (twice through the list) and then write sentences using as many of the words as possible.

## P2 Homework W/B 27.11.17

News/ Events

Children were sad to say goodbye to Miss Jeffcott, our student teacher, last week.  We are nearly finished reading The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark and so it will be time to turn our attention to the inevitable Christmas activities!

School Xmas  Fair – The school fair starts at 12:30pm this Friday and will be spread over both halls and the dining room. Please collect your child promptly at 12:25pm as usual and take them around the fair if you wish. Thanks for all the unwanted toys handed in thus far ; you have a few days left to donate any more. The toy stall will be held in the small hall.

Athletics and PE – These will be held on Wed and Thursday respectively.

Spelling and Reading homework continues as normal.

Numeracy – I have set another challenge on Sumdog, called P2 Round Up 26.11.17.

100 points to collect!

That’s all for now,

Miss S Brunt

On Thursday a real archaeologist is coming to visit P3! Just round the corner from school is AOC Archaeology, and we are grateful to them for coming in to talk about their work and answer the children’s questions.

The class has also started some music with Mrs Callaghan, learning two songs for the Christmas concert.

In numeracy, this will be our last week on money (for now) as we try to cement good progress made on calculating change.

Best wishes,

Mr Buchan

Numeracy

Thank you very much to everyone who sent in boxes for the children’s work on 3D shapes with Mrs Wallace.

Thank you also for all the Learnit practice that has clearly been taking place. Personal Bests are being shattered every week!

As we finish off our work on change, the two links from last time will both give valuable practice. Counting money in real life and giving exact change would also be helpful revision.

## PRIMARY 7 NEWS, HOMEWORK AND INFO 20/11

Our topic is WWII and although we cover a lot in class, pupils asked to do some personal project work.  To take this into account I have made a 3 week homework grid – pupils should do a MINIMUM of 1 task out of each section.  They can collate these in the folders given, produce their own booklets or folders or type it all and email to me.  I expect evidence of research, making connections across the curriculum, creativity and high quality work.

WW2 HOMEWORK GRID

SKY ACADEMY – 29th Nov – pupils require a packed lunch

Pantomime and xmas party is now due.

P7 are really busy with our Christmas fair and I will be sending out permission slips for them to stay until 2pm on 1st December in order to help out on the day.
