Another Successful Health Week!

This week has been our Health Week at Loanhead Primary, and what an amazing week it has been.  Every class has enjoyed learning about health and wellbeing as well as trying out different sports and healthy activities.  We thank Mrs Duncan for organising this week for us, without her then this week could not have happened.

Classes kicked off the week with our amazing sports day, another thanks to Mrs Duncan and the P7s for running this for the school.  It was a lovely afternoon filled with a lot of laughter and team spirit and it was great to see so many parents, carers, friends and family here to support the pupils.

The rest of the week was filled with our early morning warm ups in the playground, American Football, Football, Hockey, Cycling, Rugby, Judo, Movement to Music, Yoga, Judo, Relaxation, Healthy food making, Dance, Sleep and gaming awareness, Police talks, Internet safety, our fabulous bike breakfast (storm Hector can not stop us!) and so much more!

Here are some photos of this amazing week.

P1 Week Beginning 30/04/18

Hi All,

From now until the end of May Miss Cummings is the class teacher although I will be around helping out.

Sounds:  This week are  at,  in and og. The focus of this is rhyme. Homework will be coming out this week for this.

Reading: Please see the red cards as usual for reading and continue to revise all the words in their tin.

Spelling: All children have 4 new words in their green jotter, as usual thy don’t have to be done in the jotter – which ever way they want to learn them so they enjoy doing them.

PE has changed to a Wednesday morning.

Assemblies will alternate between Friday mornings and Thursday afternoons to allow for the future P1 to join in as part of their transition program.

P1 Week Beginning 23/04/18

We had a lovely trip to the beach – what a nice way to start our first week back.

Reading: All children will have new reading books this week, please see the red card as usual and continue to help them learn their words in their word tins.

Numeracy: Last week we were learning about ordinal numbers (first, second, third…1st, 2nd, 3rd etc) they will have some homework connected with this.

Literacy: We are finishing the consonant blends this week so will be learning ‘sp, st and sw’.

Please see the green book for this week’s common words…again these can be learned however suits your child, it does not need to be completed in the jotter.

Show and Tell: This term we will be doing a more formal Show and Tell. Each child will be told when they are to do Show and Tell, what it is to be about and what is expected. As this is about early presentation skills I will be talking to them about: Speaking clearly, a minimum of three sentences, looking at the audience and being able to properly show the subject of their Show and Tell. I will be sending a rota home with the dates each child will do theirs and the subject. Please help your child to learn how to present their Show and Tell.

PE is on a Tuesday Morning and Monday afternoons this term.

Please make sure your child has their indoor shoes at school, their PE kit, and as the weather is getting warmer, a water bottle.

From Monday 30th April Miss Cummings will be taking responsibility of the class until the end of May.

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!

Regards,

Lisa Cumming
