More details to follow but for now, Monday 27th (pm) is Sports Day and on Friday 31st it’s the Sports Showcase AND the day of the Summer Fair!

P2 Homework w.b. 20.5.19

Hi all,

Hope you have all had a chance to enjoy the wonderful weather while it lasted!

P2 have started their new ‘Minibeasts’ topic for the next few weeks and will be doing an assembly on Friday for only the school. As we have learned about the butterfly life-cycle, we have decided to retell the story of ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’. Children who receive speaking parts will take their lines home on Tuesday. Please support your child in learning these lines with lots of expression and volume (our voices have to be heard all the way to the back of the hall!).

Just a reminder that homework is now Monday – Friday as I am in class on a Monday to distribute it.

Homework for this week:

Reading: All groups have finished with their non-fiction text and are back onto The Magic Key books. Pages to be read have been written in your child’s green reading record.

Spelling: As I mentioned last week, we will be learning two sounds each week until summer. This coming week we are learning ‘or’ (corn, born) and ‘al’ (also). The two spelling lists have been put into spelling jotters but please don’t feel like you have to do both. Make sure your child reads and becomes familiar with the words on both of the lists but they only have to do one in their jotter.

Maths: We have been learning time, focusing on o’clock and half past on digital and analogue clocks. I will send home a time worksheet to be completed for Friday.

Thank you,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b. 13.5.19

Hello,

Just a little reminder that Monday 20th May is a holiday for pupils and a training day for staff.

Homework for this week:

Reading: All groups will be reading non-fiction books, we will be looking at the difference between non-fiction and fiction in class. The pages to be read are written in your child’s green reading record.

Spelling: As the weeks are flying by we will be leaning two sounds each week until the end of the term. I will put the two lists that go with these sounds in your child’s spelling jotter but there is no obligation to do both. Your child can choose one, do a mixture of words from both or they can do both, if they would like. The sounds we are learning this week are ‘oi’ (boil, coin) and ‘oy’ (toy, boy).

Literacy: As we will be reading non-fiction books this week, I will send home a worksheet that is tailored to each book to complete. This doesn’t have to be handed in until Friday.

Thanks,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b. 6.5.19

Hello,

Just a reminder that Monday (6th) is a holiday for staff and pupils, so school will resume on Tuesday 7th May. Also, Monday 20th May is a holiday for pupils and a training day for staff.

Apologies I did not send out the numeracy homework last week, was very busy with camp etc. I will send that out for next weeks homework instead!

Reading: Pages to be read will be written in your child’s green reading record. All groups will be moving on to non-fiction books within the coming weeks.

Spelling: We are learning the sound ‘ow’ as in clown, brown and crown. This weeks spelling list will have words with this sound and tricky words.

The last topics we will be covering this term will be ‘Loanhead Local Study’, ‘MiniBeasts’ and ‘Electricity’. I am hoping to squeeze a week long dinosaur topic too as the children have requested this!

I hope you all have a fab bank holiday weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller

p3 Homework week 29/04/2019

Literacy

This weeks spelling sounds are  ‘-are’ as in ‘care’ and ‘share’ found on list 22 of the spelling sheet . As usual can you write the words out in your choice of format and then write three sentences for three of your spelling words.

In addition to this I am going to send home a common words work book which we will be working through one page a week for the rest of term. This is due to recent a assessment highlighted that a lot of children are still finding these challenging so this will be a big focus for us over the final weeks in p3… final weeks in p3, can you believe it?!

P4 Homework 29/04/19

This week P4 have the following homework.

Spelling: as per their homework jotter. Please make sure your child writes sentences that include their spelling words. The sentences must not start with ‘I’.

Numeracy: We are having a times tables focus at the moment, knowing their times tables will help with a lot of activities in numeracy and maths. e.g. fractions, division, measure, addition, money.  We learn them in the following order:  10x, 2x, 5x, 3x, 4x. This is the minimum we aim for children to know by the end of P4.

Reading: Please refer to the reading diary.

PE will continue to be on Wednesday and Thursdays.

Next Monday –  6th May is a holiday for staff and children.

Our main topic this term is ‘The Romans’.

Thank you,

Lisa Cumming
