P4 Homework 4th March 2019

I think the children are beginning to get used to the change now!

Every child will have reading homework to do, I hear reading every day and give reading homework every night. It is important that your child completes this as they will be at a disadvantage when we read as a group because will have missed parts of their book.

Children will write their spelling words in their homework jotter to learn each week. They have been asked to write sentences which will use their spelling words. It does not need to be one sentence per spelling word. They have also been told that they can practise their words any way they choose through the rest of the week.

Numeracy: Please use Sumdog and encourage your child to practise counting on  and back in 2s, 3s, 4s and 5s.

We have started learning about fractions and time in class. We have also started doing French on a weekly basis.

PE continues to be on Wednesdays and Thursdays and swimming on Fridays. The last swimming is on Friday 15th March.

P4 Homework 11/03/2019

Firstly apologies for all the noisy items that came home last week; we had been learning about sound and how we make it and how it travels.

Homework this week:

Spelling – (for Friday 15th March) all words are in their homework jotter – sentences are to be made using these words, it does not have to be one sentence per word, they can use more than one spelling word in a sentence. Children should also learn their words in a  way of their choosing.

Reading – see their reading diary. We read every day so please ensure that reading homework is completed and that your child has their reading book and diary in school every day.

Maths. The children will have a fraction revision sheet this week – this is to be returned by Monday 18th March.

Swimming: This week is their last swimming session.

Red Nose Day: P4 will be at swimming on Friday so will not be able to dress up, they may get opportunity to go to the bake sale, I will check this. Red noses will be for sale this week at £1.25

Many thanks,

Lisa Cumming

p3 Homework week beginning 4/3/19

Hi all,

Big apologies for the lack of post last week. As p3 know I can be a little bit silly and I realised I have written last weeks post and clicked save as draft instead of  publish! I didn’t even notice until now as I write this weeks. So once again apologies.

Request

P3 have been learning all about measure and having covered weight and length we are now looking at capacity. A fun activity we are looking to do is to create our very own lava lamps. Similarly we are building lots of models to further our learning in our new ‘Human Body’ topic. If you have any plastic bottles (of any size) at home or glass jars (don’t have to have lids) I would really appreciate if you could donate them to us to help us with our active learning.

Homework

Many of the children’s homework jotters went home unmarked as they weren’t handed in on Monday. I will look over them and mark them this coming Monday if they are handed in.

Literacy

This weeks spelling sounds are is ‘ou’ and ‘ow ‘ as in ‘cloud’ and ‘crowd’ found on list 21 of the spelling sheet . However spelling homework this week is optional. In its place I have sent home a reading for understanding worksheet based on the children’s fairy tale ‘The Enormous Turnip’. Reading for understanding is equally if not more important as reading for fluency. In class, many children have been finding this type of work particularly challenging therefore I will be sending home a new one each week for the next few weeks to give the children more experience doing this.

Maths 

As normal select a task from the home learning wall. Please remember to colour in tasks after you have done them so I can see what you have done at home and know when to issue a new home learning wall.

New numeracy learning walls next week!

Primary 4 Homework 25/02/19

I’ve had a lovely first week with the class, we have revisited the class charter and talked about what we would like our class to be like. The children wanted these things to feature in our class charter:

We will care for each other and be kind to each other.

We will be calm and quiet which helps us to listen, concentrate and learn.

We will speak calmly to each other.

We will be respectful to everyone.

We will listen to each other.

We will try and resolve problems with our friends ourselves (we know we can ask adults for help if we need it).

We will follow instructions.

I will post homework on the website every week. I intend to set homework on Mondays and would like it in on Fridays.

This week children have reading which is noted in their reading diaries. Please make sure you sign your child’s reading record when completed and that your child has their reading book and diary every day as they will read daily.

Spelling: As listed in their homework jotters: list of words, to make sentences and learn the words in the way your child prefers.

Every child has their Sumdog password now.

Topic this term: We will be learning about Climate Zones and Weather. We will also be looking at Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his art work.

We will also be covering some Science this term.

Regards,

Lisa Cumming
