What a wonderful first week back we have had! This coming week, we will be getting back into our regular routine and homework will begin.
P.E with Miss Simpson is on Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child comes dressed in P.E clothes and brings a bottle of water for hydration.
Mandarin is on Wednesday with Miss Sun.
On Wednesday, P6 will have their first skiing lesson – how exciting!! Children should come to school dressed in their ski wear and can bring their uniform in their school bag to change into upon return. All ski equipment is provided by Hillend (boots, helmets, etc.) Please ensure your child knows their show size so they are able to be given correct fitting boots. The bus will leave promptly on Wednesday morning, so it is important that all children arrive on time.
At the end of the month, we will be welcoming Ms Gault, who will be joining us until mid-March for her teaching placement.
Reading – Children will have reading homework every night. The pages to be read will be written in their reading record, please sign this every night to evidence that homework has been completed.
Spelling – On Monday, the class will copy their new spelling list and will bring this home alongside a task to complete too. Please ensure your child completes their homework in neat, cursive handwriting. This is due in for Friday.
Other – Every child should have brought home one Scottish poem to learn. It is important that your child learns their poem, as we will be reciting them in class on Friday. From this 2 children will then be chosen to recite their poems at our poetry recital at the end of the month.
P6 should continue to bring in packed lunches from home.
