CAMP MEETING – MONDAY 1 OCTOBER AT BURNBRAE PRIMARY, 7PM
Please remember that we have cross country and Boys Football events this week and forms and payment should be returned ASAP.
Parents Evening times have been handed out, Time is very tight wither night and there is little room to swap appointments, If your time is not suitable please get in touch to meet me before or after school.
Pupils have been working on a fact file/personal project on Natural disasters. They have a check list of THE MINUMUM requirements and, so far, have had 6 hours at school (over the course of last week), as well as home learning last week to get it half complete. I have extended the Due in date to Wednesday 10th of October. Pupils know there are high expectations for quality work. The skill we are working on is note taking and writing these notes up in our own words to create new texts.
I have given out spelling books and pupils have identified the ways that they learn best. They have spelling contracts at the front of their jotter. The words are individualised and this week they are words which were mis spelled in our recent test.
NUMARACY- No homework but pupils MUST BE SECURE IN ALL TIMES TABLES which includes knowing the associated division families eg. 6X4 = 24, 4 X 6 = 24, 24/4=6, 24/6=4 – Pupils should be able to answer these as quickly as they would answer, “what is your name?”
We have been learning about rounding decimals and decimal place value. We have also been calculating time distances and learning to read train and airport timetables.
