Sorry I forgot to collect in the homework on Friday. My mind was preoccupied with the Christmas Fair. I will take the jotters in on Monday. Homework will be a little different this week. Children will be given a Christmas activity booklet to work through. There will be various literacy,maths and design activities. Please work through this in any order. There will be no homework issued on the final week.
We will be doing various reading activities in class over the next three weeks looking at skills for reading and reading comprehension. However, with all the festive goings on I will not be sending home reading books with set homework. Please ensure your children are reading each night a book of their choice.
Dates to remember:
Wed 7th-Panto in the afternoon
Thursday 8th-Drumming workshop and class talent show heats.
Wednesday 14th-Christmas Luch
All children can be collected at 12 o’clock on Friday 2nd December to visit the Christmas Fair. If you are unable to collect at this time then collection is at the normal school finish time.
Please remember that it is the Christmas Fair on Friday.
There will be no swimming on Friday 2nd of December to give us time to organise our stall.
Primary 4 are selling calendars and we look forward to seeing you there at the fair to buy them.
If anyone has any donations for the tombola, raffle, chocolate tombola or anything else we’d be happy to receive them!
Children can be collected at class at 12:00, however, the others must stay with me to help on the stall until 12:25 unless they are collected. If you wish your child to be collected my another parent can you send me a note to that effect in advance.
Don’t forget your pennies- Mrs Cooney needs a new headphone story centre for the classroom! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Swimming will resume as normal for the two weeks after this on the 9th and 16th of December.
Thursday 8th December- Matilda Movie Afternoon
We have been studying the novel Matilda in class and we are planning to watch the movie on Thursday 8th in the afternoon. We will be looking at the similarities and differences of plot and characterisation. I have said that the children can bring in a snack, savoury, sweet or fruit to share with the class, if you allow. This is instead of doing a similar thing in the last week, though we may still watch a movie, there will be no snacks.
Please remember! No fizzy juice and that we are a NUT FREE school- please ensure that all snacks are nut free. Malteasers and Haribo are always safe if you are in doubt!
