Hello hello P3,
Things to Note this week:
- This week we will be celebrating world book day (Thursday March 4th). We are lucky enough to have a real children’s author (Michelle Hogg, Poggelty Poo and Flip Flop Flew) reading the children a story virtually and answering their questions about story writing. This will also be posted on Google Classroom should your child wish to watch it at home too. In addition to this we are encouraging children to get involved in the extreme reading challenge. For this we are asking children to take a photo of them in an unusual place or position reading their favourite stories. If you google this you will see lots of fab examples. It would great if you could get involved to help us promote reading. Can any pictures taken be posted on the Google Classroom class stream so everyone can see and so we can use the images to create a lovely library display.
- Our PE days have changed this term and will now take place on a Monday and a Wednesday. Please ensure your child is dressed suitable and government guidelines state ALL PE must take place outdoors in p3 and as you know right now the weather is quite changeable so if you could keep this in mind on Mondays and Wednesdays .
Since this year has forced us all to become Google Classroom experts we are going to try to use it a bit more in p3, especially for homework
Next week everyone will have their spelling homework as per usual, however it will be on GC instead of being stuck into jotters as well as a numeracy task. This just means we are being a little more eco friendly and homework instructions are always accessible even if the blue jotter goes missing or if I accidentally miss a jotter in my marking pile! If this isn’t ideal as I know some families are trying to minimise screen time or don’t have access to an online device I will keep paper copies in school that can be requested.
Can blue jotters please be handed in on Friday of this week so I can mark work, see who needs new jotters and get them back out for homework roll out next Tuesday.
In terms of reading, reading books have been handed out to everyone unless your child is working on Read, Write Inc books as we are reassessing to see where they are in their learning post lockdown so we know where to start them now we are back. These children will receive a reading book next week.
