🩹 Blythwood Care SHOEBOX APPEAL 2022
This year Loanhead Primary school are excited to, once again, work with Loanhead Parish Church to support the Blytheswood care Shoebox Appeal.
Shoeboxes can be filled for boys, girls, teenagers, men and women of all ages. The essential items include underwear, socks and tights, hat, scarf, gloves, soap, toothbrush and toothpaste, sweeties (not chocolate) and a wee toy for a child. The essential items must be new. Other items are then included – stationery, toiletries, make-up, sewing stuff, kitchen utensils etc.
If you can donate an empty shoebox, just a couple of items or even a pre filled box this would really help make a difference this winter.
Donations should come in to school by 26th of October. If possible can Shoebox lids and bases be individually wrapped, elastic band around it and with a checklist inside? This is so they can be checked.
Go to https://blythswood.org/shoeboxappeal/ for more information or to download a checklist. Checklists are also on the letter home and can be obtained from the Office.

Spelling words – “ar” sound (to be written in jotter)
Spelling – write out the spelling words 3 times then write 3 sentences using 3 of your words.

Week Beginning 26/9/22
📸 PLEASE NOTE: The SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHER will be in school on Thursday to take individual and sibling photos
SPELLING HOMEWORK – “ng” sound. Pupils should learn these 10 words at home. In their jotters they have been asked to write the words out 3 times. In the last column they should write the ng in a colour. See jotter for an example.
READING: New books issued on Monday for most groups. Continue to read the words, talk about the picture, encourage sounding out of tricky words and learn KEY words.
MATHS HOMEWORK – We have been having fun challenges to learn addition within 10 and 20 without counting. This is our focus in school. There is a short worksheet in jotters. When adding, if children do not know the answer off by heart, the strategy we have been using is hold the bigger number in your head and count up. E.g. 11+4 – hold 11 in your head and jump up 4, 12-13-14-15 the answer is 15
PE – Mon and Thurs, please have a change of clothes, shoes and water bottle in school
*P2 News and Info 19.9.22*
I hope you have all had a restful long weekend.
On Tuesday there is the Parent Forum AGM, always looking for new members to represent the parent voice.
Gardening – the last group of children will be gardening on Wednesday – the children have all loved this experience.
Homework – Reading (books or Red ditty books) EVERY NIGHT, Spelling homework for Friday when we have a spelling test. Please also try to revise number bonds to 10/20 with your child. Homework info will be in yellow homework diaries. Please can children bring in book bags every day.
Digital – We will be logging onto our Google Classrooms on our Chromebooks this week and learning how to use this for learning.
PE will be Wednesday at 11.30. PLEASE BRING INDOOR SHOES EVERY DAY – MOST CHILDREN LEAVE THESE IN SCHOOL.
Homework is given on Monday and Friday.
Spelling words this week are: “ch” sound
Only 4 children handed in their home work on Friday so spelling words will need to be copied from diaries. Children should write the words 3 times in their jotters and I would like them to say them in a sentence to an adult and then choose 4 words to draw a picture of and write the word underneath. Please do not use pens.
Example of last week’s activity below.
If you have any spare wrapping paper etc that you can use to cover the homework jotters that would be amazing, thanks
Maths – Missing numbers worksheet to be glued in jotter and completed -handed out on Monday
Reading (Either red ditty books or ORT books) – Should be done every night as it was last year. We are working on blending sounds into words and having more fluency when we read.
