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 Read, 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

Primary 3 Homework (due Friday 6th Sept)

Hello everyone,

I am happy to let you know that we are finally beginning to get into our homework routine of issuing it on Mondays and returning it on Fridays, starting today! I have put a list of spelling words to practice in each jotter, and the choice is yours as to how you want to practice these (some suggested activities include look, say, cover, write and checkrainbow writing and silly sentences). Since last week’s homework only came back today I haven’t had a chance to mark it yet, so I’ll mark both sets of homework when I collect this week’s work. Mrs Welsh and I have also put reading tasks in the class’ reading records. Completing these will be very beneficial when it comes to reading groups! If you have any questions about homework, feel free to email me at s.mcgaff@mgfl.net or catch me after school.

Best wishes,

Mr McGaff

First homework (due Monday 2nd Sept)

Hello everyone,

First and foremost, apologies for the delay in this homework announcement, I’m still getting used to the system. Similarly to last year, it would be great if you could practice the spelling patterns I have put into your child’s P2 spelling jotter (silent b) this week. For those who don’t already have one of these jotters, I’ll get that sorted today! I have also put a note in reading records of what I would recommend going through and practicing for Monday.

Since I haven’t left much time for this homework to be completed, I can totally understand if you do not have the time to do this. I promise I’ll be on the ball on Monday and then we can get into a homework routine. I hope your child has enjoyed their time in Primary 3 so far, I know I have!

Best wishes,

Mr McGaff

Hello P3 parents/guardians!

Hello everyone!

I hope your children have enjoyed their first week back at school. I am a new face at Loanhead but all the staff, children and parents I have spoken to have made me feel very welcome since arriving here. Hopefully I’ll get the chance to speak to most of you on Wednesday for Meet The Teacher!

Primary 3 will have P.E with Mrs Duncan on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so please make sure that they have their kit with them on both days.

I am intending on starting spelling and reading homework with the class this coming week. Ms Waller has been a massive help in showing me what kind of homework they were doing in P2, and I intend on handing out homework in a format that is familiar to them. Maths homework will start after I get a chance to see how everyone’s getting on with their numbers! I will keep you all posted with information regarding homework.

My email address is s.mcgaff@mgfl.net. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about anything or if you feel there is anything I need to know. Well done to Primary 3 on a fantastic first week back, I hope it is the first of many to come!

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 27.5.19

As this week is help week children are allowed to come to school in sports clothing however please no football shirts, thank you.

Literacy

This weeks spelling sound is  ‘-ture’ as in ‘future and adventure’. Please encourage children to practise these at home.

Every child has been sent home with some cursive writing practise and revision of silent sounds. Children should complete each word 3 times in cursive handwriting. Please then get your child to turn over and write 3 sentences on the back using 3 of the words off of the sheet. This should also be in cursive. If you’re child is still working through the common words booklet, as I know some are, please continue to do so.

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?!
