This week’s homework (due Friday 11th October)

Good afternoon!

This week’s homework is our last before the October break. Similar to usual, Spelling/Read, Write, Inc. is due Friday, and Reading books are to be finished and returned on Friday.

If you wish to order the cards we designed in school today, they have to be returned by Friday at the latest so that we can send them away. If I don’t see you before Friday, have a wonderful and well deserved October break!

Best wishes,

Mr McGaff

This week’s homework (due Friday 4th October)

Hi everyone,

Just a wee announcement to say that this week’s homework is business as usual. Reading homework will be half the book for Wednesday, and the rest of the book for Friday. Spelling/Read-Write-Inc. homework is also due on Friday, and in class we have started the 4 times table if your child wants extra practice at home!

Keep up the hard work ­čÖé

Head lice

Hi all,

It’s that time of year again where head lice makes an appearance! Could I ask that parents are aware of this and are checking their child’s hair if they suspect their child has them.

Please ensure it is treated at home until all head lice have cleared to prevent them from spreading.┬áThe best time to check for head lice is when your child’s hair is wet and by using a fine nit comb.

Thank you!

This week’s homework (due Friday 27th September)

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a restful weekend!

Homework is back to normal this week. Reading homework and spelling/read-write-inc are due on Friday, however if you have any questions about either of these please do not hesitate to get in touch. It has been wonderful hearing that your children are enjoying our maths learning walls, and I hope that this enthusiasm continues!

A quick update regarding P3 PE days – Tuesday‘s PE slot is now a Monday for the next three weeks. Please make sure that your child has appropriate kit for this.

Best wishes,

Mr McGaff

Homework for this week (due 20th September)

Hello everyone, I hope you’ve had a restful September break!

Just thought I’d make an announcement for homework this week to avoid any confusion as the task will be different to our ‘standard’ weekly homework. I will send home with each child tomorrow a specific reading comprehension worksheet suited to the level they are reading at. If possible, could you work with your child to answer the questions at the back and return this on Friday. This will provide an opportunity to practice reading comprehension with your child and read a different form of text with them! Since this working week is shorter, there will be no spelling homework alongside this. Normal homework will resume next week though!

Best wishes,

Mr Sam McGaff

Holiday Reminder! (Monday and Tuesday next week)

Hi everyone,

I’ve had a few questions about when school goes back next week so I thought it would make sense to make a whole class announcement. The children are off Monday the 16th and Tuesday the 17th. Everyone comes back on Wednesday the 18th. Hope you enjoy your extended weekend, and well done to the whole P3 class for another fantastic week!

Best wishes,

Mr McGaff

Maths Learning Walls – Out today

Hello everyone,

Following Monday’s homework announcement, I have handed out maths learning wall worksheets today. The learning walls are a range of numeracy activities designed to support your child’s mental maths agility. These tasks are optional, however if you choose to do them I would recommend focusing on one a week. If you have completed a task, please highlight it so I know which ones you have already completed. It is entirely up to you or your child which task you choose to do! I intend on handing out more sheets as the year goes on to match the level your child is working at.

Best wishes,

Mr McGaff

Primary 3 Homework (due Friday 13th September)

Hello all, I hope you and your families have had a restful weekend!

This week’s homework is similar to last week’s – spelling will be the silent ‘k’ pattern (If your child is doing┬áRead, Write, Ink that homework will be instead of spelling). I have also noted reading homework in your child’s record – due Wednesday and then Friday.

I intend on beginning optional maths homework this week, and will make an announcement when that comes out.

Please note that the school photographer will be in tomorrow (Tuesday) and Wednesday, so please ensure that your child comes in full school uniform.

Thank you!

Mr McGaff
