I hope you all had a good weekend!
We are now at the start of the busy period in school, as we build towards the Christmas Holidays. I have included a brief schedule for this week.
Schedule – Week Beginning 25.11.19
P6 & 7 Boys’ Football Festival (12:30-3:15pm)
Ski Instructor from Hillend will be in class to discuss skiing for next term with the P6 pupils.
School Christmas Fair (12:30 – 2pm). Donations of any unwanted gifts for the fair would be very much appreciated. There are some P6’s that have volunteered to stay behind after school on Friday to help run table stalls. I’ll send home permission slips for these pupils on Monday afternoon.
Homework – Week Beginning 25.11.19
This will be a continuation of group reading books and the information is provided in the pupils’ reading diaries. Some pupils will be starting a new reading book this week. P6 have finished the class novel, Kensuke’s Kingdom which we all really enjoyed!
The new spelling words should be copied into homework jotters and copied 3 times at home. Pupils are then asked to find the meaning of any words they are unsure about and to write a short story (1-2 paragraphs) using at least 4 of the spelling words.
A maths revision sheet will be given to the pupils on Tuesday, to be returned for Monday 2nd December, as this gives pupils more time to complete it.
Independent Pupil Talk
This task is due on Monday 2nd December. The pupils will have the opportunity to present their talk/presentation on a personal hobby or interest over the coming weeks. I will have a schedule for set times that the pupils can choose from, so they know when they will be doing their talk.
Thanks for your support,
