P7 news and Information 5th June 2018

Not long to go now and I cannot believe the first of our High School transitions is nearly upon us.  I wish all soon to be S1s an amazing time and encourage them to have a growth mindset and give everything a go because this is such an exciting time for them.  Each and every one has made amazing progress in P7 and I cannot believe we are almost at the end.

SPORTS DAY – NEXT MONDAY PM @1.15

LEAVERS DAY OUT – Is to the Dominion cinema and then McDonalds for lunch 🙂

LEAVERS ASSEMBLY – Everyone is expected to embrace this opportunity for one last performance at Primary School but the interest in having speaking or singing parts is low – please chat to your child about having confidence to take part.  Cinderella in P5 was fantastic so I know they have great dramatic skills.

LEAVERS NIGHT – Organised by parents, Pupils have opted for a pizza party in school.  They can come to school in Gala Day attire or just normal party clothes, listen to music, play football, take selfies and have some fun as a class. Parent council supply the food for this (thank you!) It is hoped that all can attend (times TBC but usually arond 6.15pm) There will need to be a few helpers on the night- Mrs Hinton hopes to attend too.

P2 Trip to Deep Sea World 4.6.18

Hi all,

What a fabulous day we had at Deep Sea World! We had a classroom lesson where we discovered the effects of plastic pollution in the sea and the children got to meet a real live starfish. Then, we watched the seals being fed and doing some exercises. We had great fun practising our monetary numeracy whilst browsing and buying in the shop! At lunch, having a packed lunch out with friends is always exciting. Afterwards, watching the  seahorses being fed and spending time in the underwater tunnel was truly amazing. Even the journey to and from DWS allowed us to view three incredible engineering feats as we could look at the 3 Forth Bridges!

All in all, a super day- the children were fully engaged in their learning and were absolute ambassadors for Loanhead Primary in how they conducted themselves around the venue! Thank you P2 and also to the helpers who accompanied us on this wonderful trip.

Primary 3 Homework – 29th May to 4th June

Primary 3 Homework – 29th May to 4th June

On 5th June we are celebrating the 10th birthday of Ramsay Campus. A note about this went home on Friday, but in the happy rush of the Summer Fair some were left behind. If you would like another copy then please let me know.

I look forward to seeing many of you on Wednesday or Thursday. As mentioned in Mrs Donnelly’s letter a few weeks back, please let me know if you would like to have a look at the Living and Growing materials we will be using in June.

Best wishes,

Mr Buchan

 

Numeracy

Pupils have got to grips with reading measurements from different equipment, but quite a few are still shaky on remembering the different units.

Below is a link to a super game which revises everything we have looked at regarding mass, capacity and length.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Flash.aspx?b=maths/measures

Confusions to watch out for:

  • The game talks about “mass” and “capacity” which are strictly the correct terms, but we have also talked in class about “weight” and “volume”.
  • The game requires you to spell the whole words for units (e.g. “kilograms” rather than just “kg”) and we have not practised this very much (see spelling below).

 

Reading

Reading grids will come home as usual, along with unfinished quizzes on Thursday.

 

Spelling

As mentioned above, we have not much chance to practise writing out the full names of all our units.

gram               kilogram

litre                 millilitre

metre              centimetre

millimetre       kilometre

Please could everyone look, say cover, write and check (twice through the list) and then write sentences using as many of the words as possible.

P3 Homework from 22nd May

Primary 3 Homework – 22nd May to 28th May

Now that the pupils have built up their Powerpoint skills they are making presentations about a subject of their own choice. This has involved learning about online image searches. Within school we have a secure filter system to prevent inappropriate results from showing up. If the children are searching at home, however, you may need to keep an eye on this activity. Online safety is something we talk abut as a class, but I thought it would be worth flagging this up to parents also.

The Parent Council are very grateful for all the prizes that have come in so far. Thank you very much!

Best wishes,

Mr Buchan

 

Numeracy

To finish our work on measure we are looking at volume (this week) and area (next week).

At home, can you find, draw and label:

            Something that has a volume less than 500ml

            Something that has a volume between 500ml and 1l.

            Something that has a volume of 1l or more.

Use a kitchen jug to practise measuring out:

                                      200ml

                                     800ml

                                      1l

Reading

Reading grids will come home as usual, along with unfinished quizzes on Thursday.

Anyone in the Owls or Eagles reading groups, please note that there are more pages than usual to read for Thursday 24th.
