Hopefully our exciting news about our Zoo trip has made it home to you! P3 are very excited and looking forward to a trip at long last. Can I ask that all expenses are paid by Monday the 10th of June to allow us time to finalise staffing and groups.

Progress reports will be sent home on Wednesday of this week so you can share all the fantastic learning experiences p3 have had this year with your child. Also just a quick reminder that this Thursday (6.6.19) is our final parent drop in session. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s learning feel free to pop along for a quick chat. Additionally parents are invited to a short meeting at 4:45pm on Thursday after the drop in to share their thoughts and help us as a staff work and improve our vision for Loanhead Primary School. We would really appreciate your input and feedback.

Literacy

This weeks spelling sound is  ‘ie’ as ‘ee’ which can be found in ‘shield and thief’. Please encourage children to practise these at home.

This week the class homework is focusing on verbs, nouns and adjectives. Using old magazines, newspapers and comics children should hunt for verbs, nouns and adjectives and stick them in the correct column. If your child requires a glue stick or some magazines to do this just let me know.

p3 Homework week 29/04/2019

Literacy

This weeks spelling sounds are  ‘-are’ as in ‘care’ and ‘share’ found on list 22 of the spelling sheet . As usual can you write the words out in your choice of format and then write three sentences for three of your spelling words.

In addition to this I am going to send home a common words work book which we will be working through one page a week for the rest of term. This is due to recent a assessment highlighted that a lot of children are still finding these challenging so this will be a big focus for us over the final weeks in p3… final weeks in p3, can you believe it?!

As you know reading books have not went out this week as we have been doing lots of assessments this week and possibly looking at moving some pupils groups.

Homework that has been sent home this week is a letter layout and a letter features checklist. The expectation is that the children will write me a letter  detailing what they have been doing in their Easter holidays. Children are to be encouraged to use cursive writing as well as varied connectives and punctuation. This is the only homework this week.

Thanks in advance for your support with this,

Miss Ramsay

p3 Homework week beginning 4/3/19

Hi all,

Big apologies for the lack of post last week. As p3 know I can be a little bit silly and I realised I have written last weeks post and clicked save as draft instead of  publish! I didn’t even notice until now as I write this weeks. So once again apologies.

Request

P3 have been learning all about measure and having covered weight and length we are now looking at capacity. A fun activity we are looking to do is to create our very own lava lamps. Similarly we are building lots of models to further our learning in our new ‘Human Body’ topic. If you have any plastic bottles (of any size) at home or glass jars (don’t have to have lids) I would really appreciate if you could donate them to us to help us with our active learning.

Homework

Many of the children’s homework jotters went home unmarked as they weren’t handed in on Monday. I will look over them and mark them this coming Monday if they are handed in.

Literacy

This weeks spelling sounds are is ‘ou’ and ‘ow ‘ as in ‘cloud’ and ‘crowd’ found on list 21 of the spelling sheet . However spelling homework this week is optional. In its place I have sent home a reading for understanding worksheet based on the children’s fairy tale ‘The Enormous Turnip’. Reading for understanding is equally if not more important as reading for fluency. In class, many children have been finding this type of work particularly challenging therefore I will be sending home a new one each week for the next few weeks to give the children more experience doing this.

Maths 

As normal select a task from the home learning wall. Please remember to colour in tasks after you have done them so I can see what you have done at home and know when to issue a new home learning wall.

New numeracy learning walls next week!
