I’ve attached our primary 2 newsletter below. Primary 2 will have outdoor learning on the morning of Monday 7th February. Please can they come dressed with appropriate outdoor clothing in case of cold/ wet weather. They may also bring a change of clothes in their schoolbag for when they return to school. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend,
PE – Tuesday and Thursday – please come to school dressed for PE outdoors. Remember to bring a water bottle for hydration.
***Lunches***- P7 can once again order a hot meal from the school canteen. Please purchase via ParentPay beforehand. I have displayed the three week menu in class so the children can look up what’s for lunch by themselves.
Alternatively, children can bring in their own packed lunch from home to eat.
💻Chromebook Rollout! Exciting news! All pupils in P7 will receive their very own Chromebook on Monday morning. However, there are some procedures to go through this week with the children so it is looking likely that the devices will not be sent home until after the February break.
We will be increasing our use of Google Classroom both in class and at home, so watch this space!
Health Week 2 – We didn’t quite get through all the work last week so will continue this theme for another few days. This Health Week will focus on mental wellbeing. We will explore ways to regulate our emotions using discussions and mindfulness activities. We will also learn more about substance misuse and discuss issues around this.
Reading – We are reading The Diary of Anne Frank. This is part of our WW2 studies and will also incorporate some learning about Judaism.
Mr Forbes , a student teacher, continues his placement with us on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Mr Forbes has already started a music project with the class which should be exciting and lots of fun! Mr Forbes will have increasing (supervised) responsibility for teaching P7 as the weeks go on.
Spelling – Please hand in completed work on Friday. Please ensure all writing is neat.
Maths/Numeracy – My apologies – I did not manage to give out the numeracy task on Thursday so I will give this out on Monday. This week we will continue to study number patterns/relationships and rotational symmetry.
That’s all for now,
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Last week we finished off our Scotland topic and this week we will be looking at mental health as well as keeping ourselves safe around medicines.
The homework for this week:
- I have included a maths worksheet to practise partitioning numbers into tens and ones.
- The suggested reading is in each pupil’s yellow reading record and new books went home today. I have also included flashcards for each group to practise over the next month. I will include a list of these at the bottom of the post in case any cards go astray.
- The spelling words for this week are: bus pot swim cube tune used excuse little down useless
Thanks for all your support,
