Reading

Pink –  The Evil Geini – See bookmark

Orange –  Lost in the Jungle- See bookmark

Yellow- The Giraffe, the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl- P45-end – no written task.

Blue – Meeting Cezanne by Michael Morpugo P 34-44 or 32-42 ( the children know which is which) no written task

*NEW*   Numeracy- Keep going with your Learnits and I have begun a competition this week on Sumdog. The children are very keen to participate in this but please remind them that it is for fun and not to feel bad if they aren’t able to spend as much time as others on the computer.

Learnits- The Rules…

The children are asked the question on the learnits card on several occasions and if they answer correctly,  within about two seconds, they can have a tick. Once they have ten ticks they can throw the learnit away. Once the envelope is empty they can have some new learnits. You can keep the envelope at home until it needs refilled.

Don’t feel you have to do all of them at once. A few at a time is sufficient.

P4 Newsletter- Christmas Fair and Matilda the Movie (date change 8th December) .

Christmas Fair

Please remember that it is the Christmas Fair on Friday.

There will be no swimming on Friday 2nd of December to give us time to organise our stall.

Primary 4 are selling calendars and we look forward to seeing you there at the fair to buy them.

If anyone has any donations for the tombola, raffle, chocolate tombola or anything else we’d be happy to receive them!

Children can be collected at class at 12:00, however, the others must stay with me to help on the stall until 12:25 unless they are collected. If you wish your child to be collected my another parent can you send me a note to that effect in advance.

Don’t forget your pennies- Mrs Cooney needs a new headphone story centre for the classroom! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Swimming will resume as normal for the two weeks after this on the  9th and 16th of December.

 

Thursday 8th December- Matilda Movie Afternoon

We have been studying the novel Matilda in class and we are planning to watch the movie on Thursday 8th in the afternoon. We will be looking at the similarities and differences of plot and characterisation. I have said that the children can bring in a snack, savoury, sweet or fruit to share with the class, if you allow. This is instead of doing a similar thing in the last week, though we may still watch a movie, there will be no snacks.

Please remember! No fizzy juice and that we are a NUT FREE school- please ensure that all snacks are nut free. Malteasers and Haribo are always safe if you are in doubt!

 

Thanks,

Mrs Cooney
