P1/2 Harvest Songs

Hi all,

P1 and P2 have been practising the songs for their Harvest assembly this week and a few have been wanting to practise them at home too. I have put the links below that we use in class for these songs and please feel free to practise these with your children!

Harvest Samba: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTdIrlTlXks (We stop this at 1:45 and instead of ‘Thank you to God the Father’, we sing ‘Thank you to all the farmers’).

Cauliflowers Fluffy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PukdaXUzgOU

All songs have the lyrics in the video – Happy singing!

Miss Lauren Waller

Homework is back to normal this week. Reading homework and spelling/read-write-inc are due on Friday, however if you have any questions about either of these please do not hesitate to get in touch. It has been wonderful hearing that your children are enjoying our maths learning walls, and I hope that this enthusiasm continues!

P2 Homework w.b. 23.9.19

Hi all,

Letters about the P1/2 Harvest assembly and collection will be put into book bags this week. Miss Ramsay and I will also be allocating parts this week, so children who have speaking parts will be given their lines to take home and practise.

Primary 2 are starting drumming on Tuesday 24th September, there will be a number of sessions leading up to a performance for the school before the end of the year.

Just a gentle reminder that learning trio appointments begin on Friday 27th September from 1pm.

Homework for the week:

Reading: Pages to be read for that night have been written into your child’s green reading record. Please sign beside the date to evidence that reading homework has been completed for that night.

Spelling: We are learning the ‘qu’ sound this week (queen, quack), so the spelling list contains words with this sound.

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b. 18.9.19

Hi all,

I hope you all had a lovely and restful long weekend.

Please remember that children must bring their bookbags to school everyday so they have their book for reading and I, or Mrs Tobyn, can sign their reading records when they complete reading in class. This is also where we put important letters etc. I keep bookbags in school over the weekend, so I can check homework and sort out the next weeks worth.

There will be a letter regarding the P1/2 Harvest assembly and collection in your child’s book bag within the next few days.

Learning Trio appointment slips will be in your child’s bookbag on Thursday (tomorrow), if you need to amend your appointment then please do so via the school office. These will take place on Friday 27th September and Thursday 10th October. Please ensure your child is also in attendance as we will be working together with parents/carers and the child to create targets for the term.

There is a curriculum evening regarding our new approach to reporting on Thursday 26th September, 6:30pm – 7:30pm – All are welcome!

Homework for the week:

Reading: Please check your child’s green reading record for the pages to be read on that date, and initial to evidence that reading has been completed at home.

Spelling: We are learning the ‘ng’ sound this week, the spelling list contains words with this sound and our new tricky words for the week (was, be). 

Thank you for all of your support,

Miss Lauren Waller

Homework for this week (due 20th September)

Hello everyone, I hope you’ve had a restful September break!

Just thought I’d make an announcement for homework this week to avoid any confusion as the task will be different to our ‘standard’ weekly homework. I will send home with each child tomorrow a specific reading comprehension worksheet suited to the level they are reading at. If possible, could you work with your child to answer the questions at the back and return this on Friday. This will provide an opportunity to practice reading comprehension with your child and read a different form of text with them! Since this working week is shorter, there will be no spelling homework alongside this. Normal homework will resume next week though!

Best wishes,

Mr Sam McGaff
