P4 Homework 25/03/19

Spelling homework is written in their jotters, this is to be handed in on Friday. It should be completed in cursive writing and children should write sentences that include their spelling words.

Reading is in their reading diary, we are reading every day so reading book and diary should be in school every day.

The fractions sheet they had sent home last week is due in on Wednesday.

As you may have heard Mrs Cooney has had a baby girl, both are well and she has been named Elspeth. We wish them all well. The children have all been very excited to hear news of Mrs Cooney and her baby.

Library books should be returned by next week please. Sadly Janice and Christine are retiring from being our librarians. They have done an amazing job of increasing and maintaining the library and providing the borrowing service for the children. Huge thanks go to Janice and Christine.

A massive thank you goes out to these wonderful ladies for giving up so much of their own time to encourage reading at Loanhead Primary. The library has grown from a few hundred books to thousands!

Thank you,

P2 Homework w.b. 25.3.19

We have a busy week planned this week!

The P1 and P2 class are going to be very busy getting themselves prepared for the assembly at the end of the week! There was a letter that went out on Thursday about this, apologises that those with speaking parts have not had their lines yet, these will be handed to them on Monday. If you have costumes for your child/any other items of clothing that would be suitable for the other characters, could you please hand them in from Monday onwards. This way Miss Maley and I have enough time to see what else we need to buy. The children will be performing their assembly to the parents on MONDAY 1st APRIL at 9:30am and you are allowed a maximum of 2 guests per child. 

The children are continuing with their rugby sessions on Monday afternoon and on Wednesday we are spending the afternoon with the nursery doing some gardening.

Homework for this week:

Reading: Check your child’s green reading record for the pages. Please sign or tick your child’s reading record to indicate that the homework has been done!

Spelling: We are learning the ‘ow’ sound which is found in words like snow, glow, pillow. This weeks list will contain words with this sound.

Literacy: The past couple of weeks we have been revisiting capital letters and full stops as I have noticed we need a bit more practise with this. This week I will be sending home a ‘fix the sentence’ worksheet. It will contain sentences that might be jumbled up as well as having no capital letters and full stops and the children have to fix the mistakes. This will be due back the following Monday.

Thank you,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b. 18.3.19

Hi all,

We had a lovely day on Friday seeing all of the children dressed up as Disney characters or in red for Comic relief!

On Friday 29th March, P1 and P2 will be doing a Fairyland assembly for the school, we are going to do this for the parents too. Next week we will be deciding the parts and begin practising! A letter detailing the date of the assembly for parents and the parts will go out at the beginning of next week too – it will be in your child’s book bag.

P2 will also begin their rugby sessions on Monday, they will be getting rugby every Monday afternoon for 3 weeks. Please ensure your child has a full P.E. kit so they can take part!

Homework for this week: 

Spelling: We are learning the ‘y’ sound so the the spelling list will contain words with this sound and tricky words.

Reading: Please check your child’s green reading record for the pages to be read that night. If possible, could you please sign or tick your child’s reading record for that night just so I can check that reading has been completed. It is so important that reading homework is completed every night, as the more children read the more fluent and confident they become. Again, children are more than welcome to bring in their own books for personal reading time or story time.

Numeracy: The last 2 weeks we have been focusing on missing addend and subtrahend sums. These are sums with missing numbers, for example, 13 – _ = 10. The children have been learning to use a number line to work out the answer. This week I will be sending out a mixed sheet with missing addend and subtrahend questions, it will be due back in on the following Monday.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b. 11.3.19

Hello,

Apologies that this post is being uploaded later than usual. As the phonics worksheet went out late last week, I have decided only to give the children reading and spelling homework this week. Next week we will go back to having an additional task for them to complete.

Please check that your child has indoor and outdoor shoes for everyday and a full PE kit. 

Homework for this week:

Reading: Pages to be read that night are written in your child’s green reading record. Please sign your name beside the pages to be read that night so I can check that reading has been done.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘igh’ sound, this is in words such as bright, light, fright etc. Spelling lists will contain words with this sound and tricky words.

Hope you are having a lovely week,

Miss Lauren Waller
