This week we have PE Monday and Tuesday and we have a block of Rugby on Thursday too.
Pupils also have daily reading homework which should be part read aloud for most children and discussed with parents. All groups also have spelling words and are required to write each word 3 times and then write them in sentences/story/funny paragraph/letter – to show they understand the word in context.
Pupils also have Week 1 of their Alien literacy homework due for Friday, each child has a copy of the 6 week homework block but you can also Click here for more info . This can be done in jotters, on a computer and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or pupils can share with me on GLOW -Pupils all have passwords to access this at home.
MATHS – Pupils all have goals in numeracy – they will have specific learn its or times tables to learn and are required to practise these at home regularly. Try also counting up in 6’s, 7’s and 8’s starting from random numbers e.g. 17 and see how fast they can do it forwards and backwards.
Pupil Presentations – Presentations will take place between 11th March and the end of term. Pupils have sheets home to create a “big question” – see my example below. For Friday they should bring their big question to discuss with me and then they will choose their date. This is part of our literacy curriculum and is a requirement to pass First level and beyond. All pupils will be supported to present to their peers as this ensures consistency, fairness and learning.
Loanhead’s got talent is on Friday – £3.50 a ticket, please come along and support the children and raise money for the Parent Council funds.
