Welcome back everyone! I hope that you had a nice holiday and are settling back into the school routine easily.
I thought I would provide you with some current information about timetable and topic organisation, homework and swimming.
Music- The children have music on a Monday morning with Mrs Callaghan and will come into school from the lines first.
P.E.- Our pre-planned P.E. days are Wednesday (with me) and Thursday with Mrs Duncan. I think everyone now has a P.E. kit in school but if not can I remind you to provide one for those days.
Class Novel- By popular demand I am reading Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone to the class after breaks.
Topic- For the next week we are learning about Pirates and Mapping. Linked to survival on a desert island a member of the Outdoor Learning Team is coming on Monday 4th September to assist us in the building of Outdoor Shelters.
Due to the fact that the building of the new leisure center is not yet complete swimming will begin on the 12th of September. Children will need a packed lunch that day- a letter with follow.
The children should bring a swimming costume/trunks a towel and goggles. There is no need to pay for a locker and we won’t be using hairdryers or vending machines.
Homework in P4 will be distributed on a Tuesday and should be returned on a Monday.
There will always be reading and spelling and initially (starting from next week) the children will be asked to revise their learn its. More numeracy homework may be handed out as and when additional numeracy support is needed.
Tomorrow (Tuesday 29th) I will give everyone a printed copy of the spelling chart and children will be expected to write what is required in their jotters.
There will be a copy on the Website, posted by 4pm on Tuesday.
Any worksheets that are required will be given and any further copies will either be available from the website (if possible) or from me.
