In a few weeks we are going to be performing in our Assembly about the Vikings. The children are keen to dress up as vikings for this and will be coming home with some costume ideas. Over this week we will be looking at images of vikings and thinking about the kinds of things we could wear. I will send a list home of suggested items we may need but if you have any ideas in the meantime please feel free to decide for yourselves.

Some of the children are also keen to make axes and helmets- we will have time to do this in class but if anyone wishes to take this project on at home feel free. The deadline is Friday 22nd April!

P6 Homework

Welcome back to the new term, I hope everyone has enjoyed the holiday.

All groups have spelling words to learn for next week’s dictation.

Everyone needs to bring in a picture of a person either from a magazine or photo which they will be able to use to talk about their clothes in French. We will be learning the vocabulary in French to help but if you want to look extra words up to help you that’s great.

All due Monday 18th April

P2 Summer Term

Welcome back to all, hope the Easter break was relaxing and fun. I’m looking forward to the summer term and hopefully, lots of decent weather to get us out and about.

This week, we will finish up our Electricity project with investigations into conducting and insulating materials. I am going to post a collage of photos of our activities once the topic is finished.

The next topic is going to be a Local Study and will involve using/making maps, finding out lots about Loanhead and hopefully culminate in a wee exhibition of our work. If you or anyone in your family have lived for a long time in Loanhead and would like to come in and share your memories of ‘Old Loanhead’ with us, please let me know. We will also take a look at the mining history of the town. I will keep you posted with more information as the topic unfolds.

Homework – I have decided to issue everyone’s homework on Tuesdays from now on as this term sees two Monday holidays. So, homework will generally run Tuesday to Tuesday. This week, the spelling focus is ‘er’ as in number, letter, offer and so on. See reading folders from Tuesday for updates. Maths/numeracy homework will start next week.

‘Ten minute tootle’We are going to trial a daily 5-10 minute run/power walk outdoors unless the weather is extremely inclement. The aim is to build up stamina and also provide a ‘brain break’ from tasks.

Outdoor learning – I am really keen for the children to learn outdoors when feasible. For example, one maths focus this term will be measuring and doing this outdoors is ideal. It might be an idea for children to have sun protection, especially on forecasted hot days ( hats, light long sleeved tops, sun cream they can apply themselves etc).

Thanks for your support,

Miss Brunt

 

 

P6 telling the time in French

Over the last two weeks P6 has been learning to tell the time in French so we went outside to test how well we could understand by making the time when we heard it in French. This week we did the same but using ourselves as the clock hands!
