🌈 P5 Info – 23.11.20

I can’t believe how quickly time is going, we are almost in December!!

Please remember that we need to keep windows open for ventilation, so children may get a little chilly. They can bring in an extra jumper/hoody but please ensure it is clearly labelled with their name.

Flu vaccinations (nasal sprays) are on Wednesday.

🔬We had science with Mrs Cumming this afternoon and learned all about the water cycle and the states of matter. The children had lots of fun trying to melt ice as quickly as they could using a range of materials.

*Mrs Cumming is gathering some materials for science, we are looking for the following: empty plastic bottles (2 litre ones), water bottle caps (the ones you push up and down) and any old CD’s/DVD’s. Thank you.*

🏃🏼‍♂️ Mrs Duncan is back this week, so P.E is on Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure children come dressed appropriately.

⭐️ ZOOM Assembly on Friday at 11:30AM.

Homework 📝

Reading 📚- Pages to be read will be written in your child’s reading record daily. Please ensure reading is completed every night with an emphasis on expression.

🎅CHRISTMAS CARDS – Info and Deadline🎄

I can’t believe it is this time of year, in such strange times it is great to have some excitement.  The children have been busy creating Christmas cards for our annual fundraiser and these should be coming home on 6th Nov.

You can choose the greeting inside, or leave it blank.  It does not have to be Christmas.  We have some Happy New Year cards made or Eid cards made and I like to create Thank You cards for my children to send out after Christmas.  There are many options.

If you wish to order, you must return the order form and design with payment back to school in a polly pocket or sealed envelope.  You can pay cheque, cash or ParentPay.

If you would like a blank order form for siblings etc there will be some spare at the school office.  The cards will be collected by our design company on Thurs 12th, please can you return to school, with payment, ASAP.

This is always a fun fundraiser and the children really enjoy seeing their designs in “real life items”.

Thanks for your support.

Term One Targets Primary 2

I hope everyone enjoyed their October break and managed to make the most of the week off.

Getting back into the swing of things, I will be handing out the Term One Targets this week. 

This consisted of small meetings with each child and discussed what they felt they were good at and enjoyed in school.

As well as areas we felt we can work on and set as our targets. 

Some of the targets for each child, they may be able to work on them at home through games and activities. 

I have sent home a sheet at the back of the letter with some ideas of 5 to 10 minute activities that you can do at home. As well as attached some activities to this post.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me on g.peacock@mgfl.net

Big Maths Task Cards – P2

 

Homework 09/09/20 – Maths

Dear Parent/Guardian, 

This week alongside the usual spelling homework there is a maths worksheet. 

This is part of our Big Maths work we will be sending out periodically. I will place a new post when I am giving out additional maths homework. 

This week, it is on a sheet I have placed in each pupils jotter.

There is a 30 second timer at the top of the sheet – THIS IS NOT MANDATORY –  but can be used as an extra challenge. 

Please hand the sheet back in next Tuesday as per the usual homework timeline. 

Thank you, 

Mr Peacock

Spring activity ideas for the holidays

Hooray for the holidays! Although it does feel very different.  We all hope that you are staying safe and healthy.   There will be no official classwork set on Google Classrooms, although there may still be the odd fun activity.  We have, however,  put together a whole school Spring learning grid (click the link below) with some ideas to keep your creative juices flowing and for some fun family time if you run out of ideas.

Stay safe
