Please use the grid to help learn the spellings or use LOOK, COVER, WRITE, CHECK.

Red Group: ‘ng’ sound at the end of words.

Spelling the /ng/ sound Lots of words end with the /ng/ sound after a vowel – ang, ong, ing, ung words. It is always written ng on the end of a word.

Yellow Group: th, ch

If the final ‘ch’ sound comes after a consonant, the ending is -ch. For example: search, church, branch, finch.

When the final ‘ch’ sound follows a one-letter vowel, it’s usually written tch. For example: fetch, catch, pitch, watch, dispatch. As so often with English, there are a few exceptions to the rule, including the words: such, which, rich

LPS PARENT COUNCIL

All parents or guardians of children at Loanhead Primary School automatically belong to our PARENT FORUM and potentially can become members.

WHO ARE PARENT COUNCIL MEMBERS?

Parents who have attended an Annual General Meeting (which are usually held in September) and have chosen to become a member. Any parent can become a member of the Parent Council.  Members represent all the Parent Forum!

OUR ROLE

To support and create a welcoming environment that is inclusive of all parents and promotes relationships between the school, pupils, parents and carers. We also liaise between the council and parents when required making sure you have all the information and support needed!

FUNDRAISING – What is this for?

Fundraising has always been at the heart of our parent council – not only for the financial benefit- but as a way of engaging with our children and parents in a friendly, fun and personal way that is a fundamental part of your child’s school life.

For many years now we have managed to provide or subsidise many areas including:– Pantomime Transport, P7 Leavers Events & Gifts, Nursery Summer Outings, School Library, IT Equipment, Stationery, Class Projects, Golden Time Activities, Books, Maths Programmes, Sports Day Ice-creams, Summer Fair, Competition prizes and the list could go on…

This can only continue with ongoing support from you!

However, due to recent events fundraising must take a different approach for a while until any physical distancing restrictions are lifted; so for this reason we are very keen to try out any new ideas- for example parents might be able to host their own ‘mini fundraising events’ within their own social bubbles or on a virtual basis. This could be encouraged and supported and would be discussed on an individual basis.

More than ever we look to support our pupils and parents any way we can!

HOW CAN YOU TAKE PART?

During current times, the platform for our meetings will be on a virtual basis and anyone can join. They will be held on a weekday evening via Zoom – until further notice – about every 6 weeks and last around an hour!                                                                                                              Dates for meetings are provided in advance on the School Newsletter, School Website, School Facebook Page or School Bulletin board.

🎃P1 news and info 27/10/20

I hope everyone had a very well rested time off school and are looking forward to the term ahead.  This is always my favourite term and season of the year so I look forward to some fun learning, which will take on a very 2020 twist but enjoyable all the same.

Pupils will come home again with their reading books.  I only update yellow books on a Monday but children should do reading every night

Monday – half the book

Tuesday – the other half

Wed – whole book

Thurs – Whole book with pictures covered.

I am so proud of the P1 because they have worked so hard to learn their sounds and key words in school and at home, thanks for your support with this, it really does make all the difference.

🎃

Halloween – please remember children must not bring in items from home.  We will do some Halloween activities in school this week but no fancy dress etc.

Thanks

Term One Targets Primary 2

I hope everyone enjoyed their October break and managed to make the most of the week off.

Getting back into the swing of things, I will be handing out the Term One Targets this week. 

This consisted of small meetings with each child and discussed what they felt they were good at and enjoyed in school.

As well as areas we felt we can work on and set as our targets. 

Some of the targets for each child, they may be able to work on them at home through games and activities. 

I have sent home a sheet at the back of the letter with some ideas of 5 to 10 minute activities that you can do at home. As well as attached some activities to this post.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me on g.peacock@mgfl.net
