A letter about Living and Growing has gone home in bags tonight. Just in case any don’t make it home,here’s a copy.
Homework- Homework is grid pasted into jotters with spelling words. This homework is due for Friday 19th May.
Secret Friend- Next week I am going to introduce the class to a special mission called Secret Friend. For the next three weeks children are randomly issued a secret friend (a new one every week). Over the week they must be a good friend to this person. For example: putting a nice note/picture in their tray, saying hello to them, helping them with a piece of work etc. They cannot reveal who they are until the end of the week. Secret Friend will be part of our work on relationships in Health and Wellbeing.
Sorry I did not put the homework last week. All homework jotters have grid stuck in. Homework is due Friday 5th May.
I have updated the primary three homepage. You can find this by clicking p3 along the top of the home page. Here you will find a brief overview of what we are covering in class until summer.
I would be very grateful if you could support your child with learning timetables, number bonds and doubles and halves throughout this term.
Welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely Easter break. We have a jam packed summer term ahead of us.
As we have a short week this week, with the Monday holiday and our trip. We will have less homework. Homework will resume as normal next Monday.
Numeracy-Please continue to learn 2, 5 and 10 times tables. If your child is secure with these then move on to 3 and so on. You can do this any way you like.
Lot’s of games available on this link if you wish to use them http://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/5-7-years/times-tables.
Reading-Please read each night for enjoyment.
Spelling-No spelling words set for this week.

We are still working through The Twits. We are concentrating on lots of excellent comprehension and vocabulary work. We will be continuing this until the Easter break and then we will resume group reading groups. Some groups will have a reading book in book bags. If your child does not have a book please read every evening and discuss. I have also sent home two reading worksheets. Any questions please ask.

News for this term…..

Please continue to read every night. I have stuck a reading journal into the back of homework jotters. Reading can be anything from, stories, an article on the internet, reading a recipe. Be as creative as you like!

If anybody had any copies of ‘The Twits’ at home I would be very grateful if the class could borrow them as we are going to complete a novel study after the February break.
