*NEW* Numeracy- Keep going with your Learnits and I have begun a competition this week on Sumdog. The children are very keen to participate in this but please remind them that it is for fun and not to feel bad if they aren’t able to spend as much time as others on the computer.
Learnits- The Rules…
The children are asked the question on the learnits card on several occasions and if they answer correctly, within about two seconds, they can have a tick. Once they have ten ticks they can throw the learnit away. Once the envelope is empty they can have some new learnits. You can keep the envelope at home until it needs refilled.
Don’t feel you have to do all of them at once. A few at a time is sufficient.
Poetry Recital Competition for Scottish Month.
The children have been given the opportunity to read, learn and recite a poem for a recital competition that the school are hosting on Wednesday 25th January.
The children may have brought home more than one poem to read but they should only learn one if they wish to take part.
On Monday 23rd of January we will be holding an audition in the afternoon to see who will be put through for Wednesday’s final!
