If your child does not have a speaking part for the Nativity (if they didn’t bring any lines home), could they please bring in a Christmas jumper/t-shirt and/or Christmas accessories to wear on the day. This is including the four Narrators. Children can begin to bring this in from next week so we have all the costumes ready! We have sourced and sorted out costumes for all of the speaking parts, so nothing is needed for them. Just a reminder that the Nativity for the parents is on Monday 9th December at 2pm in the large hall. There is a limit of two guests per child due to limited space in the hall.
The Christmas Fair is on Friday (29th) at 12:30pm – 2pm. We are looking for toys in good condition, unwanted gifts, bottles for the bottle tombola and chocolate for the chocolate tombola. On the day and days leading up to this we will also be collecting your delicious home baking! The lower atrium (P1-4) are also creating a ‘Pamper Hamper’ that can be won on the day, we are collecting donations for this – bubble bath, face masks etc.
The P1/2 Christmas party is on Tuesday 17th December – please remember that children can bring in a change of clothes for this and they can get changed after lunch. The party is £2 per child and this can be brought in from next week in a sealed envelope, cleared labelled with your child’s name. Santa will be coming to visit the children at 2:30pm, and you are more than welcome to join us for this!
Primary 2 were given ‘Read, Write, Count’ bags on Friday to take home and they are fabulous. They are filled with some wonderful resources and books that you can use with your children to promote literacy and numeracy skills. Here is a link to the website that explains it a little more and has some wonderful ideas for you: https://www.scottishbooktrust.com/topics/read-write-count
Reading: Please check your child’s green reading record for the pages to be read.
Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘ss’ and ‘zz’ sound. Please ensure your child completes the full list in their jotter. We are also learning to write in cursive, so please encourage your child to do this with their words.
Numeracy: This week I am going to be sending out a worksheet on numbers to 100 before, after and between. We worked a lot on this at the start of the year, so this is just a revision task. This is also to be completed for Friday.
Have a lovely weekend,
Miss Lauren Waller (L.Waller@mgfl.net)
