Happy New Year to you all!
I hope that you have had a restful winter break and the children are all ready to be back at school!
Literacy: This week please recap all the sounds that we have been learning and spend some time making words with the sounds that the children have learnt already and spelling words using the sounds. e.g. ch o p = chop, sh i p = ship, p ai n = pain.
Reading: Reading books will be sent home every day. Words, sounds, sentences and activities will come home throughout the week.
Topic: From now until the end of January we will be looking at all things Scottish which will include some Scottish poetry to celebrate Burn’s Day. I will be asking the children to talk to you about any rhymes or songs and particularly play ground games that you or the Grandparents played when you were young.
In February we will begin a ‘Fairyland’ topic which we will be doing with P2 – this will continue until the Easter holidays.
French: We will be learning more French this term, we have been doing the register in French so we will add to our vocabulary.
PE will continue to be on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning. Please ensure your child has shorts and a T-shirt to change into. Please leave this at school all week. We will also be continuing Scottish Country dancing with P2.
Library will be on a Tuesday every 3 weeks starting towards the end of January.
