Reading: Please check the red card for reading homework.
Phonics: We are revising the past six sounds, these can take longer for the children to learn as they need to recognise that it is two-letters but one sound (the children often want to sound each letter individually). Please help your child identify them in their reading or when out and about and you see a word which has one of these sounds in it: ch, sh, th, qu, ou and oi.
Numeracy: We are learning about doubles to 10 and what double means. Please help your child by asking them questions about these doubles e.g. show me 3 fingers…now double it. How many now? So double 3 is ? 3+3=6.
Scottish Poem: The children have all of this week to learn their poem in Scots. We have talked about saying it with expression and putting any actions in of they want to.
Outdoor Learning: This week all the children will be taking part in Outdoor Learning again on Thursday and Friday. Their previous permission slips will cover them for this week. If you haven’t completed one yet I will send these home on Monday, please return them by Wednesday. Usual clothing applies: No need for school uniform but warm clothes (not jeans if possible), waterproof outer clothing, wellies or boots (that you don’t mind getting dirty), hats, gloves, change of clothes, snack and a water bottle.
Water Bottles: The children get really thirsty during the day please ensure that you send your child with a water bottle so that they remain hydrated. If they don’t drink enough they will get tired.
