Primary 3 Homework – First Week Back

Primary 3 Homework – 18th to 24th April

It was great to have P3 back yesterday, all ready for the new term!

We started our new topic looking at houses and homes. As part of this, would anyone be free to help on Wednesday or Thursday next week? We want to walk round Loanhead, spotting some of the things we’ve been learning about. Please let me know if you or another relative / carer could come with us. It would be from 2pm to 3pm (so just before normal pick up time) on either on Wednesday 25th or Thursday 26th.

This term I will teach P3 on Mondays as well as the rest of the week. Mrs Wallace will be with other classes. Homework will continue to run Tuesday to Tuesday. Our regular P.E. days will be Tuesday and Wednesday, with music on a Monday.

Best wishes,

Mr Buchan



After the Easter break our maths brains will need a bit of warming up. Number bonds tennis (to 10) is important practice, as are Learnits and the +/- games.

I have also put up a SumDog challenge covering lots of different skills and areas.



Reading grids will come home today. Please look out also for comprehension quizzes to be finished.



We have been learning about all the different kinds of buildings that people live in. In particular, we have focussed on flats, cottages, detached houses, semi-detached, terraced houses and bungalows.

For homework, can you describe your own home using words and pictures?


Spelling – Please could we practice the following words and then use them in some sentences:

ladder              bungalow

painting           cottage

turned             terraced

detached         each

Share your Community News

As part of assembly this week the House Captains have decided that they want to celebrate Extra Curricular achievements of pupils in their houses.

Have you won something? Done something that you proud of? Moved up a level? Joined a new club? Learned to play an instrument?

Pupils have shared their news with house captains but will be recognized in assembly on Friday.  If parents have any news or photos of pupils in action or with any awards then we would love to include these in our PowerPoint.  Please send to The House Captains via Mrs Hinton (before Friday 10am please)



P1 Homework 17/04/18

Welcome back – I hope you all had a lovely spring break.

This week I will not be giving out reading books as it is such a short week with our outdoor learning on Wednesday. Instead I will be sending home a list of phonic words that children should initially sound out if they are stuck with them and then be able to read them instantly without sounding out. These are short words that can be easily sounded out. Please cut up the list to help them learn them – you can do a few each night, you do not need to do them all every night.

Wednesday 18th April: We are having another outdoor learning session, this time to the beach. If you have not returned the permission form please do so. REMINDER: Children will need wellies, comfortable clothing, waterproof jacket and trousers if possible, sun cream, sunhat, packed lunch (if not ordered from school), change of clothes, water and a snack.

Our topics this term will be ‘Our Senses’ and ‘People who Help Us’

It will be a busy term….I can’t believe we are in the final term already!

P1 Week Beginning 26/03/2018

Well I cant believe we are at the Easter holidays already.

This week I am only sending reading homework home so please see their red cards as usual.

Monday is Epilepsy Awareness Day so to show are support for this the children and staff have been asked to wear something purple if you are able to.

On Tuesday the class will have their last gymnastics session – this has been a great experience for them and they have all enjoyed it.

Thursday is the last day of term. We will be learning about the Easter story and having some spring / Easter crafts during the morning. The pupil council have organised a fun carrot hunt for the children in the morning. In the afternoon we are walking to church for an Easter Service.

I have noticed that the size of the toys that the children are bringing in for Golden Time is increasing. I am happy for them to bring a ‘small‘ item from home if they wish. (NB. The care of the toy is the child’s responsibility.)

I will send home PE kit for washing and indoor shoes for size checking as I have noticed that some of the class have grown!

Have a lovely Spring break and see you all in April!

P2 Events W/B 26.3.18

Hi all,

This term seems to have flown past and we are now starting the final week before the Easter holidays. A reminder that school finishes up on Thursday at 3:15pm.

Children will be asked to bring PE kits and indoor shoes home to check/wash/ repair/replace for the new term, starting on Tuesday 17th April.

There will be no new homework this week apart from finishing current reading books. I’ll collect the red spelling jotters in on Monday. We were doing assessments last week and so, I did not hear all the reading that I usually do.


Monday – wear something purple to show support for our ‘epilepsy awareness’ day. It can be something very small like a hairband or watch or bigger, like a T-shirt.

PE – will be on Tuesday and possibly Thursday, if I can get a hall in the morning.

Wednesday – The school gardener Paulo will be back to work with P2 to pot up sunflower seedlings.

Thursday – We’ll have an Easter activity morning, including crafts/games and the P7 House Captains, have organised a ‘carrot hunt’ for each class. Then, it’s off to church in the afternoon for the traditional Easter service with Mr Duffin.


Topic– we’ll finish up our topic on electricity. Last week, children investigated conductors and insulators. Next term, we’ll have topics on the seashore, a local study and Health Week.

Thanks for your support,

Miss S Brunt

P7 Info 20.3.18

CLASS PHOTOGRAPHS ARE TOMORROW (WEDNESDAY) PLEASE WEAR UNIFORM! Please note that the expectation is for pupils to wear school uniform and have no false nails, make up etc in school.  Hoop earrings or dangley earrings are also not permitted.

Maths homework which consolidates class learning from the past 2 weeks was given out on the 19th and is due in on the 26th.  We are also working on algebra, probability and finding patterns in data and using these to create formula.

We are reading the Wizard of Oz in class and also studying robots which the class are enjoying.

I would like if pupils could spend time on SUMDOG and hour of code to brush up on skills set.

A few pupils are still attending school not ready to learn because they have not had enough sleep.  Please can we work together to promote good health and wellbeing.  To much “gaming” is having an obvious effect on learning.

Many thanks
