Reading homework has gone home in reading bags today, alongside this weeks spelling list.
Our sound this week is ‘igh’. Please practise the following words at home:
lip his went
night high might light
any many frightening
We have been looking at how we can work out how we can count groups of objects. For example: 6 pairs of gloves- how many gloves would that be? We can count in 2s to find the answer more quickly:
2+2+2+2+2+2=12 gloves OR 6 groups of 2 could be written as
6 x 2=12 gloves (6 lots of 2 making 12). Try the hit the button game on topmarks to practise the 2 times table. (link below)
Dear Parents and Carers,
INDOOR SHOES: Please can I remind you that your child should now be bringing a pair of indoor shoes (suitable to do P.E. in) to change into at school. Our carpets have really suffered and it costs a lot to get them cleaned.
It has been lovely to see so many parents this week to have our Trio meetings. I look forward to speaking to the rest of you this week.
Homework: Please see reading books and spelling jotters as usual.
I have spoken to many of you about the importance of your child learning their times tables for rapid recall. Please encourage your child to work on this and support them by asking them questions in and out of order whenever you can. Little and often is a good way to approach it.
Last week two groups of children were involved in doing some gardening around the school with a couple of parent volunteers. This week the rest of the class will have the opportunity to take part in gardening.

Thank you to those who attended their Learning Trio last week. It was so nice to see you all again face to face and discuss your child’s learning. They should be bringing home their targets this week.
P6 had their last week of skiing and while it is sad that we are finished, the class should be so proud of how well they represented the school and their own perserverance on the slopes too!
We also had our first full school assembly on Friday, the class (and myself!) LOVED it. It was so lovely to be able to come together as a school for it.
P.E is on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child comes dressed for P.E with a water bottle for hydration.
On Wednesday we have Mandarin with Miss Sun.
Just a reminder that children can bring indoor shoes to wear in school, these should be suitable for P.E and will be kept in school.
Friday 11th March – Dress Down Day – in aid of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. Children can wear blue and/or yellow to show support for Ukraine and make a monetary donation IF THEY SO WISH. This is entirely optional.
Reading – set as usual.
Spelling – Words written three times in cursive in their homework jotter and task is on Google Classroom.
Numeracy – There is an algebra revision task on Google Classroom for the children to complete.
Please remember that homework is due in on FRIDAY each week.
Thank you all for your continued support,
Miss Lauren Waller
PE – Tuesday and Thursday – please come to school dressed for PE outdoors. Remember to bring a water bottle for hydration.
🏑HOCKEY – TUESDAY – Our first sports trip! Some children have been selected to take part in a hockey tournament at Lasswade HS – please ensure all permission slips are handed in on Monday.
Indoor shoes – Children can now bring indoor shoes to change into. ***Indoor shoes should be suitable for PE***
Reading – ‘Reading Challenge’ – to encourage pupils to read for pleasure more, I will issue the First Minister’s Reading Challenge this week. Children receive a ‘passport’ where they record what they have read and can share this with the class, if they so wish. Children can borrow a book from our school library.
Debates – We are embarking on 3 rounds of debates over 3 weeks. We have randomly selected 6 teams. Round One debates went very well last week. Round Two starts this week with new teams. Details are on the Debates jamboard in Google Classroom.
P7 Song – Progress has been great so far – P7 have now written the chorus for the class song and Mr Forbes has created a melody for it. It’s very catchy! This week, groups will work on verses. Mr Forbes has posted the guitar chords needed for the chorus so interested pupils can start practising!
Friday 11th – Dress Down Day – in aid of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. Children can wear blue and/or yellow to show support for Ukraine and make a monetary donation IF THEY SO WISH. This is entirely optional.
Spelling – Please hand in completed work on Friday. Please ensure all writing is neat.
Maths/Numeracy – A task will be set in Google Classroom on Monday 7th. We have been doing general revision recently but will be focusing on measure for the next week or two.
That’s all for now,
Our school community have been desperate to do something to help Ukraine. 🇺🇦.
We have decided to have a dress down day on Friday and ask everyone to wear something blue and yellow if possible. We ask that everyone brings a cash donation too. We are donating money to a charity that matches your donations, so anything we raise will be doblubled. More info will be given when donations are in.
Thanks for your support
The learning trio appointment times were sent home yesterday so please check your child’s school bag. If the time is unsuitable please let the office or myself know as soon as possible, I can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to speak to me at the end of the school day.
This week is world book day! Please can the children bring a book to read as whenever a bell goes during the school day we will stop and read. On Thursday the pupils may dress up as their favourite book character, we’ll be doing lots of fun book day activities!
The reading and spelling homework has gone home in book bags. Our sound of the week is “ea” as in teapot.
I have included a numeracy activity as well in their homework packs to consolidate our learning: number order for rectangles and triangles; addition for circle group.
Thanks for all your support,
