P1 homework – 03/12/18

Good evening all,

Homework for this week:

Reading: We have not sent home reading books this evening as we are making changes to the current reading groups .

Reading books will be coming home from Tuesday onwards. On Thursday we will also send home either a reading comprehension worksheet or a key word worksheet.

Please see the blue reading record book and continue to help your child learn the words in their word box. Learning these words is an essential part of the reading process and your child can not move on to the next stage of  reading books until they have learnt their words from the current stage.

Phonics: We will be learning 3 new sounds this week, please help your child to complete the worksheet in their red book following our lesson on the sound.

Monday: ‘z’

Tuesday: ‘w’

Wednesday: ‘ng’

We have sent home the meal options for the school Christmas dinner – please fill in your child’s selection and return this to us as soon as possible so we can notify our dining staff, thank you.

Christmas hamper and fair

Hello parents and carers,

It is coming up to that festive time of year again and the school is slowly being transformed into a winter wonderland for the Christmas Fair.

Just a reminder that the lower atrium, P1-4, are collecting items for their Christmas Eve/The Night before Christmas hamper for the Christmas Fair. Any donations are gratefully received.

We are also looking for anyone who would be able to give us a helping hand with the Christmas Fair toy stall on Friday from 12:30pm – 2pm. Please do let us know if you would be interested in helping out!

Thank you,

Miss Kristel Maley and Mrs Lisa Cumming

P1 homework for week starting 26/11

Homework for this week:

Reading: Please see the blue reading record book and continue to help your child learn the words in their word box and use the letters to practice creating 3 letter words.

Phonics: We are not learning any new sounds this week but we are recapping the ones we have learned so far. To help with this we will be sending home worksheets which either focus on the phonics sounds or are related to your child’s reading book. Please help your child to complete these.

Newspapers – As part of the run up to Christmas each class has been asked to create a crafty christmas tree. We are considering making a 3D tree from recycled newspaper. If you have any newspapers which you could donate to this we would really appreciate it if you could send them in.

We would just like to say a huge thank you for helping your child to prepare for this years nativity. We are delighted to see that the children with speaking parts have been learning their lines at home and that the whole class are trying their best to learn the songs and their roles within the play.

 

 

19/11/18 – P1 homework

Good evening. I would like to apologise for the lack of a post last week, I had issues with the website however I have managed to fix the issue now.

Homework for this week:

Reading: Please see the blue reading record book and continue to help your child learn the words and sounds in their word box. It is really important that the children learn these words so that they can begin to feel that they are successfully reading their book and can progress onto the next stage of reading books.

Phonics: We are currently learning digraphs in phonics. These are where 2 letters make one sound, for example ‘oa’ makes the ‘o’ letter sound heard in boat, goat and float.

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

Monday – ie – ‘i’ letter sound heard in pie and lie

Tuesday – ee- the ‘e’ letter sound heard in see, bee, sheep

Wednesday – or

Nativity: A nativity newsletter has been sent out to let you know the casting for this years nativity. If your child has a speaking part please encourage them to practice their part and help them to learn their lines.

If you have any props or outfits that may be suitable for this years theme – Christmas around the World we would really appreciate borrowing them for the show.

In particular we are looking for outfits or props for the following characters : Spanish, Hawaiian, Indian, American, Chinese and African

Thank you
