Hope you have all enjoyed the short break.
Homework this week:
Reading: See the red card as usual and continue to support learning of the words in their word tins.
Phonics: We are moving on to learning consonant blends e.g. br, cr, fl, st etc. Please help your child by ensuring they blend the two letters together rather than saying ‘b r’ individually.
Numeracy we are continuing with counting backwards, if your child can count back from 10 please help them to count back from 12, then 15, then 18 etc. If your child can do this from 20 then extend this to counting back from 30.
Can you help reinforce that two 1p coins is the same as a 2p coin, five 1p is the same as five 1p coins or tw0 2p and a 1p etc. This can be quite a difficult concept to grasp so any additional support is beneficial.
PE: Primary 1 are lucky enough to have a block of gymnastics provided by external coaches but working with Mrs Duncan (PE Specialist). This means that from this week until Easter they will have PE on a Tuesday morning instead of Wednesday.
REQUEST FOR YOUR HELP PLEASE:
If you have any junk such as cereal boxes, tubes (NOT toilet roll), pots, boxes, trays, tubs, lids etc please can we have them as P1/2 are setting up a junk modelling area to help develop creativity, problem solving, construction and design skills. Also old catalogues, magazines, wrapping paper and birthday/Christmas cards.
Also if you have smaller items such as corks, bottle tops, jam jar lids, ribbon, string, buttons, beads, glass beads, curtain rings, etc. we would love to take these off your hands too!
If anyone has any boys trousers, girls trousers, girls tights that their own child has grown out of please could you hand them in to us. We need a supply of clothes in case children get wet or muddy and our supplies have depleted recently.
