p3 Homework 22/01/2019

Hi all,

Apologies for the written homework not returning last week, unfortunately I was off work ill at the start of the week. I hope everyone had a fantastic time over the holidays and that your children are enjoying being back in the swing of things in school.

As usual homework will go out on Tuesday and be returned the following Monday.

Missing Jotters and Folders

Upon organising the homework I noticed quite a few children are missing jotters or folders which makes it difficult to ensure that all the children are getting their homework and keeping their things together without going missing. If you find  child does have a missing jotter could you send me in a little note and I will get them a new one and similarly with the reading folders as I can provide a poly pocket for them to use.

Spelling

This weeks spelling pattern is the long o vowel sound made using ‘oa’ ‘o_e’ and ‘ow’ as in boat, stone and bow. These can be found on Spelling list 16 on the new spelling words issued this week.

Can I ask that you are getting the children to also write a minimum of three sentences as well as practicing their spelling words as good sentence structure is something many of the children are not using within class. Your children should now be aware of vocabulary including adjectives, nouns, proper nouns and verbs as well as punctuation including full stops, question marks, exclamation marks, commas and speech marks and are encouraged to use these within their writing.

Maths 

As normal select a task from the home learning wall. Please remember to colour in tasks after you have done them so I can see what you have done at home and know when to issue a new home learning wall.

P2 Homework w.b. 21.1.19

Hello!

Well done to all the children who took the time to learn one of the Scottish poems that I sent home last week, it was lovely to hear them recite it to the class!

Homework for the week:

Reading – Please check your child’s reading record for the pages that have to be read that night. Alongside their reading book, please encourage your child to read something that they enjoy too. Fluency and confidence in reading improves with the more children read.

Spelling – We are continuing to learn about bossy ‘e’, with our sound o_e this week. Spelling lists will contain words with this sound.

Writing – To support the children in expanding their vocabulary within their writing, I will be giving out a writing task each week. This will also go out on Tuesday but does not have to be back until Monday of the following week. I will also give the children a jotter to complete this work in.

Thank you for all your support in this new term.

Have a lovely week!

Miss Lauren Waller

P6 Homework and News W/B 21st January 2019

Hi all,

Homework this week:

Spelling – There’s a new spelling list this week plus revision of to, too and two.

Poetry– Everyone has been given a Burns or Scottish poem to learn to recite. Well done to all those pupils who have recited so far. There are still a few to be heard this week.

Pupil Talk – Many children have shown great enthusiasm for this task already so we really look forward to hearing and watching the finished presentations in the final week.

All children have access to computers throughout the week to continue their research.

Ski-ing – Starts on Wednesday. Children should bring their ski-ing gear with them to change into at school before we leave on the bus (after break).

PETuesday and Thursday – I’ve noticed there’s an increasing number of children who do not bring a full or even partial PE kit with them. I’m going to discuss with P6 the importance of having a fresh change of clothes for PE, especially as they are maturing!

On a similar note, there are many children who do not have (or say they do not have!) indoor shoes. I have suggested that even a pair of slippers would count as indoor shoes if that would encourage them to bring in a change of footwear.

 

Thank you,

Sara Brunt

Hello,

Homework for this week:

Phonics: Please help your child complete the following sheets in their red phonics book:

Monday – y – The initial ‘y’ sound as in yoghurt, yoga, yellow.

Tuesday – x – the ‘x’ letter sound heard in x-ray

Wednesday – ch

Scottish Poems: Please continue to help your child learn their Scottish poem. The children will be reciting their poems in class this week. Two children will then be selected to recite their poems in the assembly on Friday 25th January.

P2 Homework w.b. 14.1.19

Hi all,

Homework will be sent out this week – as usual, it will go out on Tuesday and should be completed by Friday.

Reading: The pages will be written into your child’s reading record. I write the whole week of reading into these records so please check the date on the night you are reading.

Spelling: On Monday the children will recap bossy ‘e’ with a (a_e) and then we will move on to bossy e with i (i_e). Spelling lists this week will contain i_e words and tricky words.

Poetry: The children will also bring home a Scots poem to learn for the end of the week. On Monday there will be two poems that the children can choose from and take home to learn. On Friday the children will recite their poems to class and two pupils will then be chosen to represent P2 in the Scottish Poetry Competition at the school assembly on Friday 25th January.

If anyone has any clean and empty packaging boxes that P1/2 could use for junk modelling then it would be greatly appreciated!! The children love making things out of old cereal boxes, yoghurt pots etc. Thank you.

PE this week will be on Monday instead of Tuesday but it will go back to Tuesday next week!

Have a lovely week,

Miss Lauren Waller

P6 Homework W/B 14th January 2019

Hi all,

Homework this week:

Spelling – There’s a new spelling list this week plus revision of your and you’re. Lots of practice also required with they’re, their and there.

Reading – There will be no reading book home. However, can children please bring in reading material that they enjoying reading as we will have time set aside for personal reading.

Poetry– Everyone has been given a Burns or Scottish poem to learn to recite. Two children from each year group will be selected to recite their poem at a special assembly towards the end of January. Children should be ready to read or recite their poems by Thursday 17th (this Thursday!)

Pupil Talk – Miss Dickson is organising pupil talks this term. We have selected 15 Scottish inventors and pioneers. The class will be split into 2 x 15 groups. Therefore, 2 people will be researching the same person. Children only have to present their talk to their group, not the whole class.

Some of the people we’ve selected to research are very well known and famous for their inventions, others are less well known but were nevertheless pioneers in their own field of work.

More information will follow this week. Pupil talks will be held in the final week before the February break.

WOOL APPEAL – Do you have any old wool/yarn/embroidery threads you could donate? We need lots as we’re going to be making items to sell to raise money for our Eco-committee. The more bright and colourful the better! Oh, and any beads would also be gratefully received.

PEMONDAY (for one week only) and Thursday as normal.

 

Thank you,

Sara Brunt
