Welcome back to P2!

Welcome back!

I cannot believe that the summer holidays are over already but I am super excited to meet the class tomorrow! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are feeling refreshed, and ready to come back.

The class will have P.E. on a Tuesday and Wednesday, so please ensure your child brings their gym kit in on Monday so they can take part.

We will also be having music on a Wednesday, which will be very exciting!

I will not be starting any homework until week 3 (week beginning 2nd September) and this will be handed out on a Monday to be completed for Friday. Homework will consist of reading, spelling and usually a numeracy or literacy task too. I post the homework on the website every week, alongside any important events that are coming up in the school calendar.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me this year through email (L.Waller@mgfl.net) or at the end of the school day. I look forward to working with you all this year!

Hi all,

Finally, the last week has arrived, although I have to say, this year in P6 seems to have flown past. Personally, I’ve found it a very rewarding and fun year and I most definitely look forward to taking this year group on into P7.

There is no homework this week.

Just a reminder that the P7 Red Hoodies (The 2020 red hooded tops with  P7 names on the back)  are now available to buy in the online shop. I know some of you have already ordered, so fingers crossed that they will arrive in the next few days!

Pupil Talks/Kids Teach – Just a few to go now! Well done to FrC/ DG , WL/LR and MBo and MBa for their respective presentations last week on ants, rock climbing, the ocean layers and map reading.

Term ends on Friday at 12:25pm.

I’d like to say a big thanks for your support over the year and hopefully the sun will shine for everyone over the summer! See everyone back, safe and sound, in August.

Miss Brunt

Hi all,

There’s just two weeks to go! Nearly the final countdown…

**P7 Red Hoody – The 2020 red hooded tops with  P7 names on the back are now available to buy in the online shop.**

Spelling – There will be no new list this week as we have  dictation to catch up on.

Pupil Talks/Kids Teach – Just a few to go now! Well done to CK/FC and DR for their presentations last week. DR made a brilliant model of a hard drive which he used to clearly explain how to build a computer.

Topic – We have started a  topic on Space so if anyone has any books or resources to bring in, that would be great. We’re going to be looking particularly at the history and future of space travel and current technology/space missions.

Schoolwork home – Towards the end of the week, we’ll start to clear out trays and send relevant work home. However, there are some unfinished jotters with plenty of pages still left in so these will travel with P6 into P7 ( Writing, maths, handwriting, STEM and Mandarin). Can children start to bring  sturdy bags to carry their work home in please, say from Thursday onwards? Thanks.

Here is the diary for the week ahead:

Monday –  P6  BIKEABILITY for those who applied.   Bring bikes AND helmets please. A big well done to our fab Junior Road Safety Officers FC and EvC and ,of course, Mrs Welsh, for organising Bike To School Week.

Tuesday –     PE

Wednesday –

Thursday  – PE

Friday –

Thanks for your support,

Miss Brunt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

P2 Homework w.b. 17.6.19

*************REMINDER FOR TRIP***************

We are going to Butterfly and Insect World on Thursday 20th June, please ensure your child has a packed lunch with them, if you opted out of a school packed lunch. Your child can bring money to spend in the gift shop but please put this in a clearly named purse/wallet with a maximum of £5. 

This will be the last week of homework and on Friday 21st June it will be ‘Meet The Teacher’ where pupils will meet their new teacher for the next term.

Homework for this week:

Reading: Pages to be read have been written in your child’s green reading record.

Spelling: We are learning the last two sounds this week, which are ‘au’ (haul) and ‘aw’ (raw). As before I have put both spelling lists in their jotters but your child can choose to put one or both in their spelling jotter.

Tomorrow (Monday 17th June) I will send home the class photo order form in your child’s book bag, apologies that I did not send it out on Friday.

Thank you all so much for all of your support this year.

P6 Home Learning and News W.B 10th June 2019

Hi all,

Communication

It has been brought to my attention that some parents said they did not know about last week’s drop in session on Thursday. I update this web page every Sunday for the week ahead and I did detail on last week’s entry, about the forthcoming drop in session.   Also, every month, children are given a newsletter which always has dates for your diary on the back. The newsletter is  accessible on this site too. May’s newsletter is on the website and it did detail this drop in session.

P6 children have the expectation of being responsible enough to take letters home but I am unsure if some letters make it that far. P6 were given June’s newsletter just on Friday there and I actually put names on each one so I could make sure everyone got one. Even so, many were left behind on desks! I will speak to the class about this tomorrow. There are so many letters going home, it is hard to keep track of them all and I can imagine, for you as parents (especially if you have more than one child) this can be extremely tricky! Also, if children have been absent and miss letters this can be problematic. Admittedly, I can be forgetful and late in handing some out too! So, all in all, it’s really important to check this page on a weekly basis.

I will print this post out to send home so everyone has a copy.  Thank you.

 

**P7 Red Hoody – The 2020 red hooded tops with  P7 names on the back are now available to buy in the online shop.**

Spelling – There will be a new list this week so children should complete spelling activities as normal.

Numeracy – Recent assessments have shown that many children are still unsure about dividing so I’ve put a challenge on Sumdog. It lasts for a week and there’s 150 coins to collect.

Pupil Talks/Kids Teach – Children should be preparing their presentations/lessons at home. Well done so far to EC/LD for teaching us a dance ( my legs are still aching!), TH/TJM for their football session and RA /OM for their second tennis lesson.  There are just a few pairs and individuals to go.

Living and Growing – Week beginning Monday 10th June, P6 will have some lessons about growing up and how their bodies start to change during puberty. There’s three lessons altogether; the second lesson covers human reproduction and the third lesson covers child birth. There will be a DVD to watch and worksheets to complete but the main part will be discussion. To recap, the lessons are:

  1. Change 2. How A Baby Is Made 3.How A Baby Is Born.  

Topic – We have started a new topic on Space so if anyone has any books or resources to bring in, that would be great. We’re going to be looking particularly at the future of space travel and current technology/space missions.

Here is the diary for the week ahead:

**BRING YOUR BIKE TO SCHOOL WEEK** Children are encouraged to bike or scoot to school this week and may win a prize via The Golden Padlock! Friday is BLING YOUR BIKE day. Decorate your bike to try and win a prize.

Monday –    P6  BIKEABILITY for those who applied.   Bring bikes AND helmets please.

Tuesday –     PE

Wednesday –

Thursday  – PE

Friday –  Bling your bike – decorate your bike to try and win a prize!

Thanks for your support,

P2 Homework w.b. 10.6.19

Hi all,

             ***********TRIP INFORMATION***********

As we are learning all about ‘Minibeasts’ this term we are going on a trip to Butterfly and Insect World on Thursday 20th June! The letter went out last week and please could all letters and payments be made/returned by Monday 17th June. Myself, Mrs Tobyn and Jenny Lavin will be on the trip with the children. There is a gift shop, so children can bring some money to spend in there, if they wish. Please ensure this is put in a clearly labelled purse/wallet and is no more than £5. 

Homework this week:

Reading: Most groups have moved up a stage in their books, so please ensure reading is completed every night to build confidence with new words. All pages have been written in your child’s green reading record. If it is easier for your child to do reading at the weekend, then please keep the book at home on Thursday evening and bring it back with your child on Monday. I understand family life is very busy and this may be the best time for some to do reading.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘ir’ (dirt) and ‘ur’ (fur) sounds. I have sent home both spelling lists but please only complete one in the jotter and ensure your child practises reading both lists.

Maths: We are moving on to 2D and 3D shapes next week, so I will send home a worksheet in line with this. This will be due back in on Friday.

It was lovely to see some of you at the drop in on Thursday evening! Please never hesitate to email me or catch me at the end of the day if you have any questions!
