P5 Homework & update w/c 24.9.18

Homework

  • Spelling: the spelling activity cards have been embraced by almost all of the class with pupils enjoying the variety of activities and option to complete as much as schedules permit. All pupils are aware of the homework expectation but I would remind parents to initial or sign homework jotters to prove that red activities have been complete.
  • Numeracy & Maths: pupils have been learning about angle types in class and have begun to practise using protractors to measure angles. The homework this week is a consolidation of class work and consists of identifying angle types (acute, obtuse and right angles).
  • Reading: pupils have now learned three Literacy Circle roles; Illustrator, Word Wizard and Question Writer. They have practised these in class using their reading book/novel. Pupils will soon be ready to apply their learning to reading homework which will begin after the October holiday.

P5 Homework w/c 10.9.18

Homework

  • Spelling: I look forward to marking the first P5 spelling activity cards this week and setting new spelling pattern words for week 2 (remember complete green & red is optional).
  • Numeracy & Maths: pupils have been learning about 3-D shape in class and became familiar with their chosen shape by making nets. While we set-up spelling and reading strategies, I would ask pupils to carry on with their Times Table practice.
  • Reading: pupils have now learned their first Literacy Circle role, Illustrator and practised this using their class reading book/novel. Over the coming weeks we will continue to practise the other four roles so pupils will be ready to apply their learning to their reading homework.

P5 Homework

Spelling Homework

Now your child is in P5, they will be encouraged to have greater independence and responsibility for their own learning. Therefore, spelling homework will be taken home on a Wednesday afternoon and returned the following Tuesday morning. This must be checked by an adult.

Pupils will write their spelling words on a new page of their jotter on Wednesday each week. At home they should use:

LOOK  THINK  COVER  WRITE   CHECK

to write out their new spelling words three times in neat columns. They should also complete a green activity card which will earn pupils 2 credit card points. An optional red activity may be completed for extra practice (and 1 credit card point) but is not mandatory.

Reading Homework

Reading will consist of a variety of activities including Literacy Circles, Novel Studies and individual reading tasks. A library novel will also be chosen by your child.

Maths & Numeracy Homework

Maths/Numeracy homework will be given out on a regular basis to tie in with what has been taught in class. This will be handed out on Wednesday to be returned the following Tuesday morning.

Topic Homework

There will be occasional homework for topic which may include individual research and class talks.

General Expectation

Please ensure homework book is covered. In P5 we expect children to date work, present their work neatly, and use rulers to draw lines.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Roy & Mrs Watts

Welcome to P5!

A warm welcome to P5!

Everyone seems to have got off to a great start as we spent the first week  working through some ‘getting to know you’ and cooperative learning activities.

This week will see the commencement of homework and a trip to the Book Festival, details to follow.

Kind regards,

Mrs Watts & Mrs Roy

 

 

P5 Final Week

Here we are on the final week of term! We have reached this date with a mix of emotions and although sad to only have a few days left together, we are also all very excited for the summer holidays and recharging those batteries for another busy year ahead.

To celebrate, P5 have decided upon a Shorts ‘n’ Shades party on the afternoon of Wednesday 27th June with Mrs Watts and a picnic with Mrs Roy on Thursday 28th June. For our Shorts ‘n’ Shades party we have decided to come to school as normal in our school uniform and if we fancy we will change into shorts and our sunglasses for the afternoon. I will provide some refreshments and some pupils have agreed to bring in some treats to share with the class. Please only do so if you have the time and are able to do so.

Formal teaching will still take place during the morning sessions to lunchtime and then pupils will attend various Assemblies throughout the week.

If you could ensure all pupils come to school on Thursday 28th June with a strong carrier bag to take home their jotters, this would be very much appreciated.

Mrs Roy and myself wish you a very happy holiday and great start to P6 when you return. It has been a pleasure getting to know each and every one of the pupils in P5 this year and remember we are just across the atrium if you every need to chat!

Best wishes,

Your P5 Teachers (Mrs Roy & Mrs Watts)

 

P5 Homework w/b 18.6.18

P5 Homework will consist of one last spelling practice and a ‘weight’ activity exercise:

  • Spelling Activity Cards (complete green & red is optional)
  • Weight activity exercise

As you are aware our class trip to Scottish National Mining Museum is this Wednesday 20th June 2018.  Many thanks for returning all ME2 slips. We will leave school at 9:15am and return at 2:45pm with pupils being dismissed at the normal time of 3:15pm.  Can you please ensure pupils come with a packed lunch, snack and wearing a light rain jacket and outdoor shoes as some of our tour is outside. The weather forecast for Wednesday looks like rain but hopefully we will be able to avoid this and enjoy our day.

I will send home a slip detailing this information with pupils on Tuesday afternoon,

Many thanks,

Mrs Watts
