P7 Homework – Week Beg: 30th November

Hi P7,

Your homework this week includes,

1. Create an Ideas list on job roles for House Captains around the school.
As part of P7, we normally would have House captains elected for Dryden, Gladhouse and Edgelaw. Due to Covid-19 this has not happened yet. Can you come up with ideas for jobs that the pupils could do in school that still adheres to government guidelines?

2. Learn your spelling words and complete the tasks.

3. Maths Activity 1 – Fractions Friday. Learn the revision sheet given to you on converting fractions into decimals and percentages. (10 minutes would be the minimum I recommend on learning your fractions each week.)

4. Maths Activity 2 – Complete the Money activity on Jobs and Salaries. You can complete this on the Google document.
Alternatively, you can also create a new google doc and type the answers there to turn in.

5. Continue working on your pupil talk, if you have not finished it!

NOTE: I will be providing paper copies for pupils who are still having issues with accessing Google Classroom. Please let me know on Monday 30th November if you require a paper copy.

Fractions Friday
The work to be learnt this week as your task will be tested on Friday 4th December by Mrs Caldwell.

Thanks,

Mr Nelson

🌈 P5 Info – 23.11.20

I can’t believe how quickly time is going, we are almost in December!!

Please remember that we need to keep windows open for ventilation, so children may get a little chilly. They can bring in an extra jumper/hoody but please ensure it is clearly labelled with their name.

Flu vaccinations (nasal sprays) are on Wednesday.

🔬We had science with Mrs Cumming this afternoon and learned all about the water cycle and the states of matter. The children had lots of fun trying to melt ice as quickly as they could using a range of materials.

*Mrs Cumming is gathering some materials for science, we are looking for the following: empty plastic bottles (2 litre ones), water bottle caps (the ones you push up and down) and any old CD’s/DVD’s. Thank you.*

🏃🏼‍♂️ Mrs Duncan is back this week, so P.E is on Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure children come dressed appropriately.

⭐️ ZOOM Assembly on Friday at 11:30AM.

Homework 📝

Reading 📚- Pages to be read will be written in your child’s reading record daily. Please ensure reading is completed every night with an emphasis on expression.

Spelling✏️ – The new spelling list was copied down this morning (Monday).

Maths/Numeracy 🔢 – There will be a task uploaded on Google Classroom tomorrow morning (Tuesday). I will have printed copies for those who cannot access Google Classroom.

Have a lovely week,

🍂Primary 1 news and info 23/11/2020 🌈

The end of November is near….I cannot believe it. 🍁

🌟This week we are shaking things up a bit in P1 – Rearranging the seating in the classroom and creating new reading groups for everyone.

🔔We are also beginning to “rehearse” a simple Nativity performance that I hope to film and put together…somehow (watch this space). We will be doing this while sticking to restrictions and guidance so unfortunately we are limited in activities this year –  but I have had my creative hat on.

📚 Reading – pupils have reading to do each night, this is essential.  You should encourage them to sound out the sounds in each word and say them if they meet words they are unsure of (e.g. h-a-t is hat).  Each group has stage 2 or 3 words to learn, this is really important for progression through the stages.

📊 Maths/Number- This week we will be looking at: Counting to 20, ordering numbers and counting backwards as well as identifying amounts in a ten frame. (playing dominoes and games like snakes and ladders with 2 dice is a great way to support this).  We are also continuing to look at data handling through tally marks and bar charts.

🌈PROUD CLOUD ☁️ – Have a look on Seesaw for info on “proud cloud” help I have asked for.

💻  SEESAW ACTIVITIES – There is a CVC (Consonant, vowel, consonant) word activity (suggested day-Tuesday) and a count and match activity (suggested day-Thursday).  Digital learning is quicker, more eco friendly and often involves less writing, which can be off putting for children.  If you do require a paper copy just let me know and I can print it.  If there are issues with opening these activities please get in touch as sometimes I do not notice faults right away.

Thanks,

Mrs H

P3 Homework w/b 23.11.20

Hi everyone,

Things to Note (It’s a short list this week!):

  • We have our nasal spray flu immunisations on Wednesday.
  • It is starting to get bitterly cold outside so please make sure your little one has a coat as the children go out to play in most weathers with the exception of heavy rain.

Reading:

If you see task on your child’s group I have sent a sheet home with them. This gives a variety of different possible task ideas. You and your child can pick a minimum of one to do but please do not feel limited to one either. These can be verbal tasks or tasks recorded in their blue homework jotter. In addition they also provide some good ideas and questions to assist with guided reading to work on your child’s comprehension whilst daily reading largely works on fluency and decoding.

SPELLING

The children have been split into groups for spelling. Their spelling words are stapled into the blue homework jotter. These words need to be learnt and the children should look out for other words of the same spelling pattern when they are reading.

Please use the grid to help learn the spellings or use LOOK, COVER, WRITE, CHECK.

Red Group: ‘cr,dr,fr’ sound at the start of words.

Words such as: frill , drill, crack

Yellow Group: o_e

Words such as: stone, joke, throne

For this spelling pattern it is essential that children know their vowel sounds a, e i , o, u and letter names , which written phonetically sound like AY, EA, IE, OA ,UE.

We talk about the silent e jumping over the consonant to change the vowel sound. The song below can provide a helpful reminder.

Green Group: Word lists in the homework jotter.

Have a lovely week everyone!

Miss Ramsay

Very Well done to those pupils who have finished their pupil talk and also to the excellent talks we have already enjoyed listening to in class. I have been mightily impressed and equally intrigued, learning some interesting facts about family members and WW2.

Your homework this week includes,

1. Learn your spelling words and complete the tasks.
2. Maths Activity 1 – Fractions Friday. Learn the revision sheet given to you on converting fractions into decimals and percentages. (10 minutes would be the minimum I recommend on learning your fractions each week.)
3. Maths Activity 2 – Complete the worksheet on ‘Three Figure Bearings.’ This can be completed by printing the sheet and then taking a picture to upload.
Alternatively, you can also create a new google doc and type the answers there to turn in.
4. Continue working on your pupil talk, if you have not finished it!

NOTE: I will be providing paper copies for pupils who are still having issues with accessing Google Classroom. Please let me know on Monday 23rd November if you require a paper copy.
