p3 Homework 22/01/2019

Hi all,

Apologies for the written homework not returning last week, unfortunately I was off work ill at the start of the week. I hope everyone had a fantastic time over the holidays and that your children are enjoying being back in the swing of things in school.

As usual homework will go out on Tuesday and be returned the following Monday.

Missing Jotters and Folders

Upon organising the homework I noticed quite a few children are missing jotters or folders which makes it difficult to ensure that all the children are getting their homework and keeping their things together without going missing. If you find  child does have a missing jotter could you send me in a little note and I will get them a new one and similarly with the reading folders as I can provide a poly pocket for them to use.

Spelling

This weeks spelling pattern is the long o vowel sound made using ‘oa’ ‘o_e’ and ‘ow’ as in boat, stone and bow. These can be found on Spelling list 16 on the new spelling words issued this week.

Can I ask that you are getting the children to also write a minimum of three sentences as well as practicing their spelling words as good sentence structure is something many of the children are not using within class. Your children should now be aware of vocabulary including adjectives, nouns, proper nouns and verbs as well as punctuation including full stops, question marks, exclamation marks, commas and speech marks and are encouraged to use these within their writing.

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.

p3 Homework w/b 26.11.18

S0…. I don’t think I can deny we are definitely in the run up to Christmas now which of course means the timetable is bulging with things to do. I have put a couple of dates for you diary below and will update you further on anything you need to know about.

Friday 30th NovemberChristmas Fair* @12:30pm

Wednesday 12th DecemberChristmas Jumper Day and Christmas School Lunch

Thursday 13th December  – Drumming Workshop

Tuesday 18th December – P3-7 Christmas Concert (afternoon)

Friday 21st December – Last day of term – Assembly at LP Church.

*With regard to the Christmas Fair, the Lower Atrium will be compiling a Christmas Eve Hamper to raffle on the day so if you can donate any appropriate items to the hamper, that would be super!

HOMEWORK

Spelling

Our sound this week is -air (hair, chair, stair etc). Spelling homework is as usual.

Numeracy

Quite a few children are concerned that they don’t have time to complete this alongside everything else. Can I stress that it is only one brick on the wall a week and this can be done during the week or even the weekend as I don’t check jotters until the following Monday. I really encourage personalisation and choice in learning and hope this learning wall approach to numeracy homework allows for that.

Homework w/c 19/11/18

Hi all,

We had a fantastic turn out today for our pyjama day for Children in Need.Thank you for all of your donations and support. When I know the total I will let you know but it was great fun!

Book Week

This week in school is book week! Throughout the week if your child has a favourite book or a book they are reading at home as we will be partaking in DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) and  will be reading at regular intervals throughout the day.

Just a quick reminder that Thursday is a dress up day in school and children are encouraged to dress up as their favourite book character. I have my costume prepped and at the ready!

Homework

Finally as it is book week this is a good opportunity to share our favourite stories with each other therefore I am asking that children prepare a short talk of 2-3 minutes on their favourite book. Information should include:

  • The book title and author
  • Why they like the book and their favourite part of the story
  • Their favourite character and least favourite character and why.

I will hear the talks on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. 

Children can present with notes, power points or drawings if they choose but it is not essential.

Spelling

Our spelling sound this week for homework is ou as in u eg double, trouble country etc.

Maths

This week I will also be sending home a large yellow homework jotter which contains a home learning wall similar to the spelling menu. Again children are asked to complete one brick on the wall each week and colour it in red, yellow or green based on understanding.  As some of the activities are practical and may not be able to be evidenced in the jotter pictures may be stuck in to the jotters or just a short note to let me know how they got on.

P3 Homework w/b 12.11.18

Homework Spelling

This week our sound of the week is ‘wa’ (wo)  as in was, water and swan. Please use the spelling menu as last week but could you also encourage your child to write three sentences in their jotter using one of their spelling sound as before as this is good practice of writing and sentence structure. We will also be looking at adjectives in class as part of our grammar lessons so this may be something you wish to discuss at home orally.

Athletics

In addition to their usual PE slots on a Wednesday and Thursday p3 will be also taking part in a 4 week block of athletics from Monday the 12th of November until Monday the 3rd of December. Please make sure your child has all the necessary PE kit to take part as it the programme really does look like it will be loads of fun!

P3 Update and Homework w/c 5.11.18

Hi all,

Homework Schedule

Up until now we have been operating on homework being distributed on Tuesday and being due on the Friday however quite a few of the kids have been concerned that they didn’t have enough time to get everything done due to out of school commitments. Therefore Spelling homework will now be handed out on Tuesday and be due in the following Monday so everyone has equal opportunity to do it.

This week our sound is soft g as in giant, magic and gym and understanding that just as soft c’s ”best friends” ( letters that must follow to soften then sound are i, e and y so too are soft g’s. We are also working on proper nouns. Whilst there are no specific homework dedicated to this I would encourage you to challenge the children to find them in stories or in the environment around them.

Remembrance 

Just so you are aware p7 will be selling poppies throughout the week should your child want to purchase one with the suggested donation being £1. Also our Remembrance service lead by p7 is this Friday at 10:55am.

NSPCA Online safety for parents/carers

We are lucky enough this week to have people in school from th NSPCA running a course on online safety for parents and carers in the community rooms on Friday the 9th of November at 9:30-10:30.  You are all welcome to come along if you are free to join.

November Newsletter

A copy of this has gone home today with children however I do appear to have a large amount left over. This is a handy thing to have as it has all the dates for your diary so if you do find you need a copy of this just let me know and I will pass it along. Also you will find that Christmas Fair Friday is down for Friday the 30th of December. This is a misprint as we will all be off enjoying our winter holidays by then! The date of the fair is in fact November 30th.

A particularly apt book for this time of year given it discusses war and its impact on children on the home front during WWII. This may be something you wish to discuss with your child when reading as we are in the lead up to our Remembrance assembly.

P3 Homework and Assembly

Hi all,

Hope everyone had a lovely holiday, I know your kids did after all the great stories I have heard today. I must say am jealous!

As this week is the p3 class assembly I have chosen to hold back our spelling work to next week as many of the children have lots of words to practice. We will be sharing our learning about our endangered animals topic with the whole school so we are all very excited!  In addition to this we will be performing a song as a class called ‘Animals in Danger’. I have provided lyrics at the bottom of the post as well as a media link to the song. If for some reason the link doesn’t work the song is on Youtube under the same title. Any support at home with learning the song and lines or even just improving fluency when reading them is hugely appreciated. If your child has come home with no lines it is because they are part of our learning gallery and are sharing their art work they are proud of.

If you do so wish to carry on working on spelling in class we are revising silent b, k and  w as well as ea as e, ch as k and wh.

Just a quick reminder that all children’ s PE kits should be returned for Wednesday as that is our regular PE day.

P3 will also be taking part in a drumming workshop this Thursday using Peruvian Cajon drums which is very exciting.

Thank you in advance for your support with our class assembly,

Miss Ramsay

Animals in Danger Lyrics

(Words and Music by Liam Maloy © 2009)

If the jungle was your playground and the forest was your home

And the meadows and the mountains were where you loved to roam,

If you woke up in the morning and all of this were gone,

How would you feel?

 

If your friends were all around you and your neighbours were there too

Every member of your family was living close to you

If you woke up in the morning all alone and in a zoo,

How would you feel?

 

Danger.  Danger.  Animals in danger.

From the big to the small.

And we stand or fall together.

‘Cause this world needs us all.

 

This world is like a jigsaw so no pieces must be lost.

When a species is no longer every creature pays the cost.

There are birds and bees and bison,

Pigs and pandas we may never see again.

 

Danger.  Danger.  Animals in danger.

From the big to the small.

And we stand or fall together.

‘Cause this world needs us all.

 

We all need a place to live. We all need a place to grow.

We need food and air and water to survive.

So we can walk and swim and fly on the land, in sea and sky

And stay alive.

 

Danger.  Danger.  Animals in danger.

From the big to the small.

And we stand or fall together.

‘Cause this world needs us all.

 

Danger.  Danger.  Animals in danger.

From the big to the small.

And we stand or fall together.

‘Cause this world needs us all.
