P5 Info – 16.11.20

Hi all,

Apologises for the delay on uploading this weeks announcement.

Thank you for all your donations for Children in Need on Friday. We raised over £325, which is just incredible!

Primary 5 will have a 45 minute virtual drumming lesson on Thursday afternoon. Then on Friday we will be joining Mrs Donnelly in the assembly to share the  facts we have learned about Diwali.

*If you cannot access/log into Google Classroom, can you please email me so I am able to sort this out for you, as all children should be able to access it.*

Homework 📝

Reading📚 – Pages to be read will be written into green reading records daily. Please sign beside the date to evidence it has been completed.

Spelling✏️- A new list was copied was copied on Monday morning.

Maths/Numeracy 🔢 – Children received a paper copy of their numeracy homework today. It is focusing on doubling 2 digit numbers. We explored this today in class, and we worked it out by doubling the tens and ones first. For example, for double 52 (50 + 50 = 100, 2 + 2 = 4, 100 + 4 = 104).

Have a lovely week,

Miss Lauren Waller

🎅CHRISTMAS CARDS – Info and Deadline🎄

I can’t believe it is this time of year, in such strange times it is great to have some excitement.  The children have been busy creating Christmas cards for our annual fundraiser and these should be coming home on 6th Nov.

You can choose the greeting inside, or leave it blank.  It does not have to be Christmas.  We have some Happy New Year cards made or Eid cards made and I like to create Thank You cards for my children to send out after Christmas.  There are many options.

If you wish to order, you must return the order form and design with payment back to school in a polly pocket or sealed envelope.  You can pay cheque, cash or ParentPay.

If you would like a blank order form for siblings etc there will be some spare at the school office.  The cards will be collected by our design company on Thurs 12th, please can you return to school, with payment, ASAP.

This is always a fun fundraiser and the children really enjoy seeing their designs in “real life items”.

Thanks for your support.

 

Mrs Hinton and all at Loanhead Primary

Hello,

Please ensure that children come to school with a warm, waterproof jacket, snack and water bottle every single day.

🧥Children  may wish to bring an extra jumper in with them as the classroom can get chilly due to having to keep the windows open for ventilation. Please ensure this is clearly labelled with your child’s name.

🎨 Remembrance Day – Wednesday 11th November. P7 and Mr Nelson have asked children to bring in a plain pebble which will be painted with a poppy design and varnished in school. It is hoped that a memorial place for these pebbles will be created within the school grounds. Children can bring these pebbles in this week! Poppies are also being sold from today, it is a suggested donation of £1. 

🏃🏼‍♂️P.E is on Wednesday, please ensure children come dressed appropriately for P.E as it will be outside.

🍁 P5 Info – 26.10.20

Hello!

I hope you have all had a wonderful and relaxing October holiday.

👩🏻‍💻 I will not be in school until Friday this week so I can only apologise that all the Learning Trio target sheets will be completed and given home by next Friday  (6th November) instead of this coming Friday. Apologises for this. 

🏃🏼‍♂️P.E. is on Wednesday afternoon so please come appropriately dressed for this, as the weather is ever changing.

⭐️ ZOOM Assembly on Friday at 11:30AM.

📝 This week may look a little different as I will not be in class with the children until Friday but homework should remain the same with reading and spelling.

I am still available to contact via Google Classroom or email (L.Waller@mgfl.net), if you need anything, then please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Hello,

🔬 No science with Mrs Cumming as she is teaching Primary 3 this week.

🏃🏼‍♂️ P.E is on Wednesday afternoon, please ensure your child comes dressed appropriately for this as we are not allowed to do it inside.

🗣 Pupils will be presenting their pupil talks this week, the talk timetable was discussed on Monday in class, and posted on Google Classroom for everyone to refer to. **Please note that due to the current climate, children should not bring any items from home in for this. Instead pictures can be emailed to me and I can share these on the smart board with the class. 

💻 On Thursday afternoon we will have an online workshop with an ex-miner! This will be very exciting as we have been learning about what it was like to work in the mines during the Victorian era.

Check out our charcoal pictures of us as chimney sweeps! We have put them on display in the school hallway for everyone to see.
