P1 Homework 7th Nov. 2016

Sounds: This week the sounds are two letter sounds which can be trickier to learn. It is important to remember to help your child learn that the two letters make one sound. Please continue to help your child learn to read and make the words from the Word Box 1 list.

Maths: We are learning about the seasons and the sequence and names of the four seasons.

Numeracy: We are learning to count backwards from 20, to help with this it might help to do it in stages e.g to count back from 12 then from 14 etc.


Poppies are still for sale daily…please send a minimum of 20p if your child would like to buy a poppy.

Curriculum Evening on Thursday: this is on internet safety. Parents are invited into school on the Friday morning at 9.00am to observe internet safety or personal safety being taught in the classrooms.

Assembly: Parents are invited to stay for the Rememberance  Assembly after observing learning in the classrooms on Friday morning.

Nativity: The children are now beginning to learn the songs for the Nativity, we will also be giving out the parts for the Nativity this week. The children have all decided if they would like to have a speaking part or not and auditions have taken place.

Woodland visits. Please make sure you have returned the permission form for the visit on Weds 9th and Monday 14th. If you have not been given a permission form yet these will be handed out over the next week.

Homework this week –

Spelling – List 10 ‘ ll’ – can children please complete the written part of their homework in their green jotter; last week, only about half the class did so. If your child practises their spelling elsewhere, on other paper for example, just write me a wee note in their spelling jotter to let me know. Thanks.

Reading – as usual, check green reading bags. We will start to read ‘Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark’ by Jill Tomlinson as a class novel.

Maths – Well done to those who completed our first Sumdog challenge. This week, the Sumdog challenge is called ‘Days, Months and Hands of the Clock’ – 75 coins to collect.

Topic – We say farewell to the topic on Dinosaurs and think about Day/Night and safety in the dark ( links in perfectly with the Owl novel).

Nativity – The P1/2 Nativity performance is scheduled for Monday 12th December ( time TBC). Mrs Cumming and I have chosen the script we want to use this year (Christmas with the Aliens)  and already the infants have been learning some songs. We’ll try and give out parts/roles this week 🙂 We’ll let you know in due course if your child has lines to learn or needs help with their costume.
