P3 had some special visitors!

Last Monday P3 had some special visitors!

As part of the Human Body topic we have been looking at senses, one of which is sight. We have been thinking about what it would be like to not have our sight.

Pat, Dennis and their guide dog Todd came to visit us. They told us all about what it is like to be blind and how they live a very normal life with the help of Todd and some other nifty technology.

We also looked at some braille and we also learnt that you should only clap a guide dog if you ask the owner and it has it’s harness off.

Thank you Pat, Dennis and Todd!

spelling 8th Feb

There is no other additional spelling task. However, it would be great if pupils could start thinking about ‘truly terrific’. Children should know about this but more details will follow shortly.

Maths Worksheets for Friday

Children should all have received their individual sumdog password home. If you could keep this safe that would be great. Over the next week and during the February break it would be good for children to explore sumdog, getting used to how to use it. As well as being fun Sumdog should enhance maths skills!


Reading homework will be on reading records. Please sign to say children have read. Children should be reading 20 minutes every night. This should be their reading homework plus other reading for enjoyment.

Reading homework in P3 will now be only verbal, no written tasks. Children who have key words should be practising at home regularly.

All groups have spelling words for after half term. The learning council have set homework to discuss our ‘learning powers’ with an adult at home.

This week we will also be working on the 500 words Radio 2 writing competition which many in the class are keen to enter. I will take these in on Wednesday at the latest for feedback before half term so that they can be typed and submitted from home. Although we will have time in class to work on the stories, some finishing off and checking your own work should be done for homework before Wednesday.

P2 Homework W/B 8.2.16



year of the monkey

We will be learning about Chinese New Year this week. One of our parents, Wei, has kindly offered to come in over a few afternoons and has organised some fun and informative activities for the children. Wei has already been into school  and has told the children all about the story behind Chinese New Year. The class then made a large Chinese Zodiac display.

So, this coming week, children will be making lanterns, learning to write some Chinese characters, helping to decorate the class, making dragons and also making, cooking and tasting pork dumplings.

Thank you Wei!

Other events  this week:

Tuesday – drumming

Thursday and FridayPE as usual.

Homework this week:

Reading – we will continue with our ORT books but there will also be an additional ‘Reading for Information’ task sent home. This is a sheet about the ‘Year of the Monkey‘. Please assist your child as necessary.

Spelling/handwriting – this week the sound focus is ‘ew‘.

Numeracy – Two tasks to try!

  1. Sumdog Challenge – ‘P2 Round Up Challenge’ This covers a variety of themes covered so far. 100 points to collect.
  2. Chinese Dragon Maths Game‘ – search for ‘Top Marks Chinese New Year‘ online. Scroll down to the box titled ‘Chinese New Year Activities’. At the top, you should see the dragon game. Have a play with sequencing and ordering. Choose a level you feel confident with. This site has lots of other exciting ideas on it if you are interested in finding out more about the Chinese New Year.
