Language and Literacy
Sound sheets ‘e, h and r’ to revise the sound and writing the letter. These sheets will be in their reading folder. If children wish to they can draw things that begin with the sound they can do so on the back of the sheet.
Reading: Tues – Thurs nights. Revise key words that are in the reading folders. Although your child may be memorising the words in their reading book please encourage them to follow the words with their finger.
Sounds that have been taught so far are also in their word bags along with an information sheet on how to use these to help the children learn their sounds to build simple words.
Please can the children make a simple poster about numbers around them. This can be done by drawing and writing numbers, by cutting out and gluing from magazines etc or by using photographs of numbers in the environment e.g. from buses, door numbers etc. FOR MONDAY 26TH SEPTEMBER
PE Weds afternoon and Thursday morning.
The Midlothian Advertiser will be in school soon to photograph the P1 class, a letter is in the Homework bag regarding this.

P4 Homework 30/08/16
Please Note: Homework is distributed on a Tuesday and should be handed in on a Monday. However, some reading groups will have to read every day and their reading homework will be changed on a daily basis.

We will focus on the same sound for two weeks- additional words will be added next week.
Gorillas ( aw ) sound
Pandas (oo) sound
Wolves (oo) sound
Words in jotters
- Write words three times and repeat them, noticing the tricky words and how they sound different. All groups have * tricky * words.
- Write a sentence for each word.
- Complete one Spell Well activity.
Purple and Orange – See new books and bookmark daily.
Red Yellow and Green- Comprehension worksheet “Public Transport” – to be completed for Monday 5th September.
Events this week:
Monday – A visiting theatre group will perform ‘Oliver Twist’ to the whole school.
Tuesday and Thursday – PE
Wednesday – Meet the Teacher – 3:30 – 4pm. A chance to drop in with your child, see the classroom and have an informal chat.
‘Show and Tell’ – Children may bring in items of interest- maybe souvenirs from holiday, medals, certificates or items related to topic work. I’m trying to discourage children bringing in toys.
Everyone has reading and spelling homework. I have sent home work in a clear homework bag unless your child handed in their green folder from last year.
Spelling – I have sent home a sheet with SIX weeks worth of spelling lists. I have dated the top of each list, clearly indicating when each one is to be learned. This week, the sound focus is ‘sh‘. I have also sent home a grid of spelling activities which are basically online games, jotter work and quick revision games which need nothing. If you cannot access the spelling games online, do not worry as your child will play these games in school ICT time anyway. Use the other choices to practise the spelling list.
When will my child get a spelling test?
We ‘test’ spelling through the dictation of sentences and so, the dictation of List 1 will take place next Monday, 5th September. So, your child has a whole week to learn their spelling words.
Everyone gets a new book this week, following on from where they left off in Primary One 🙂 . I’ll put in markers to guide you as to how much to read and when.
Thanks for your support; hope to meet you on Wednesday.
The final countdown has begun- we have reached the last week of term before the summer holidays! As such, the only homework this week is to finish the spelling lists (91-100).
- I will collect all reading books in on Wednesday. Please return any library books too please.
- Sumdog winners – I have worked out the top 3 players throughout P2 and will present these pupils with a small prize on Wednesday, as I will do to the top 3 players in our current competition. Well done to all who took part and remember, Sumdog should be open over the holidays if children have a spare half hour or so.
- PE will happen at different times this week due to demands on the large gym hall so please make sure your child has his/her kit with them all week.
- Sturdy plastic bags- please hand one in on or before Wednesday so your child can empty their work trays and bring art work home.
- A reminder that school finishes at noon on Friday.
I just want to wish everyone a happy and safe summer holiday. I have very much enjoyed teaching this wonderful class and although I am sad to see them go, will look forward to watching their progress in P3 with the lovely Miss P and Miss L. I also want to thank you, the parents, for being so supportive throughout.
Miss Sara Brunt
Thank you P6 for an excellent year full of learning and fun. I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching you all and getting to know you. I hope you have a great summer holiday.
A la prochaine!
