P6 Home Learning 29.4.19

Hi all,

Here is the homework for the week.

Spelling – New list as usual.

Reading – We’re reading poetry books in school so no books will be sent home.

Numeracy – I’ve put a new challenge on Sumdog. It’s a decimal challenge with 100 coins to get.

Pupil Talks/Kids Teach –  As we don’t have enough time to do both, children will choose to do either a Pupil Talk or plan and teach the class a short lesson. Children can work in pairs if they wish.  Some children are champing at the bit to get started. More information will follow on Tuesday. Everyone will get a couple of weeks to prepare.

PE is on Tuesday and Thursday.

Reminder – Next Monday (6th) is a holiday and the school is closed to pupils and staff.

That’s all for now, thanks for your support.

Miss S Brunt





P2 Homework w.b. 29.4.19

Hi all,

I hope you all had a lovely break and got a chance to enjoy the weather while it lasted. It has been so lovely to hear what all the children have been up to, it sounded like everyone had a very busy Easter!

I didn’t send any homework last week as we had a revision week and I wanted to assess the children’s reading. I will be taking the class full time now, so I plan on sending homework out on Monday for it to be returned on Friday. I am aware that family life can be very busy during the week so if you would like your child to have their reading book home for the weekend,  then please just either catch me at the end of the day or note it in your child’s reading record and I will make sure the book goes home on a Friday.

I am going to camp with Primary 5 this week (Wednesday – Friday) so Mrs Wallace and Miss Ramsay will be covering the class while I am away.

Homework for this week:

Reading: The pages to be read will be written in your child’s green reading record. Please could you sign your child’s reading record every night when you do reading. We are working a lot on expression and fluency in our reading this term.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘ou’ sound like in house, loud, flour. The children will have a list of words including this sound and some tricky words.

Numeracy: There will be a worksheet with a mix of different numeracy questions that we have covered this year (missing addend, doubles etc.). This is to be returned by Friday please.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller






p3 Weekend Homework 26/04/2019

Hi all,

As you know reading books have not went out this week as we have been doing lots of assessments this week and possibly looking at moving some pupils groups.

Homework that has been sent home this week is a letter layout and a letter features checklist. The expectation is that the children will write me a letter  detailing what they have been doing in their Easter holidays. Children are to be encouraged to use cursive writing as well as varied connectives and punctuation. This is the only homework this week.

Thanks in advance for your support with this,

Miss Ramsay

P6 Home Learning and News W/B Tuesday 23rd April 2019

Hi all,

Welcome back!  I hope everyone had a relaxing break and that this recent glorious weather stays around for a long time.

The final term is here, with a couple of Monday holidays in May for the pupils. Time seems to have whizzed past. We have such a lot of learning to squeeze in: with mini science topics such as Electricity, Space and Living and Growing; a historical look back in time studying The Jacobites; the annual Poetry Competition, Health Week with Sports Day , Bikeabilty, a Novel StudyPupil Talks and/or Kids teach; the Summer Fair… the list seems to go on!

Homework this week consists of spelling only. There will be lots of information to follow about other events and tasks when required.

Children will continue to read daily in class, choosing from a set range of novels this term and there will also be poetry homework soon.


It would be very helpful if children can come to school prepared with writing pencils, rubbers, sharpeners, coloured pens etc. Everyone is required to bring indoor shoes and a full PE kit. At the moment, PE is on Tuesday and Thursdays. Children should only have water to drink in class although may bring juice as part of a packed lunch.


Thank you,

Miss S  Brunt

Hi all,

It’s the final week of term. There will be no homework set but here is a quick reminder of events this week.

Debates – Round 3 starts this week and will occur on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Children will get time on Monday to practise with their group. Next term, children will be asked to prepare another Pupil Talk on any subject (with a partner if so wished). A further talking and listening challenge will be ‘Kids Teach’ where children  plan and  prepare a lesson of their choice to teach to the whole class. I’m just giving children plenty of time in advance to start thinking about these two projects.

Wednesday Dr Bike visits Loanhead so P6 can bring in their bikes to get checked over.

Thursday eveningEaster Event – tickets on sale now or can be bought at the door.

Friday – Children will walk from school up to the local church for an Easter service.

Term ends Friday 5th April @12:25pm.

All resume Tuesday 23rd April.

Have a great break,

Miss Brunt


P2 Homework w.b. 1/4/19

Just a reminder that the P1/2 assembly is on Monday at 9:30am for the parents and you can bring a maximum of 2 guests per child.

We have our last rugby session on Monday afternoon, the children have really enjoyed it and on Thursday morning we are taking part in the carrot hunt. This week, I will also be collecting in library books as they are due back before the holidays – if your child has lost their book then please just pop a note in their bag about it so I can let the lovely librarians know. I will also send P.E kits home for washing on Thursday.

This Monday is also the last day that Mrs Wallace will be teaching the class, after the Easter holidays, I will be teaching the class for the full week.

Homework will still be sent out this week but the first week back after the holidays, the children will not have any as I will be assessing their reading and sorting out new books. However, if you do wish to take some reading books home for your child to practise reading over the holidays then please let me know and I will get them to you. 

Reading: Check your child’s green reading records for the pages to be read this week. We are focusing on our expression and predicting this week.

Spelling: We will be learning the ‘ew’ sound and their spelling list will have words with this sound. Everyday we are working on our cursive handwriting, please encourage your child to write their spelling words in cursive. I have some sheets that show the cursive joins if anyone would like a copy to support their child with this then please just ask.

Literacy: The children did a fantastic job of fixing the sentences in their homework this week! We have been doing a lot of work on WOW words and using them to improve boring sentences, so I will be giving out an ‘improve the sentence’ worksheet. The children will rewrite the sentences and add in some WOW words to make the sentences amazing!

We are going to the church on Friday morning and finish at the usual time (12:25pm), everyone returns to school on Tuesday 23rd April. 

Thank you so much for all of your support this term. I wish you all a fun, restful and safe Easter!

Miss Lauren Waller


Week Beginning 25/3/19


This weeks spelling sounds ‘-y’ as the final syllable which makes an ‘ee’ sound as in ‘baby’, ‘jelly’ and ‘history’ found on list 22 of the spelling sheet . This is the main homework alongside reading this week.


As normal select a task from the new home learning wall. Please remember to colour in tasks after you have done them so I can see what you have done at home and know when to issue a new home learning wall.
