P1 8th October 2018

Homework this week:

Reading: Please see the blue reading record book and continue to help your child learn the words 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 -it helps them to make more sense of what they are reading too.

Phonics: We are not learning any new sounds this week but we are recapping the ones we have learned to far and blending the sounds to make small words that are made of a consonant – vowel -consonant (CVC words) such as CAT, HAT, NAP, MAP, CAN etc. We will send new sound cards out when the photocopier is up and running again – apologies for this!

Numeracy: Please help your child with counting back from 10 to 0, if they are able to do this then please help them with counting back from 20 – 0 (this can be done in small stages 12 – 0, 15 -0 etc).

*If you have not done so already please send in a small box or tin for your child’s words.

We will send PE kit home to for washing this week. After the holidays please ensure it is returned on the Monday in preparation for PE on the Tuesday. Every child should have named T-Shirt and Shorts.

PARENTS EVENINGS:

Wednesday – Parents Evening from 17:30 onwards.
Thursday – Parents Afternoon from 15:30 onwards.

Half-Term Break: We finish on Friday at the usual time of 12:25pm. We wish everyone a safe, fun and restful half term break.

Thank you for your support to help your child settle into school over these past weeks.

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.
