Homework week 11/06/2019

Zoo Trip

Not long now until we are off to the zoo! Thanks to everyone for bringing the money in on time.  Monday’s weather is predicted to be sunny with a chance of light showers around lunchtime.  Therefore, can I please remind you that all children must bring a suitable raincoat with them should it start to rain.  Can I also take this opportunity to remind you that school uniform is expected as this helps make our children more identifiable.

On Thursday we plan to have a class discussion about our trip so feel free to send your child in with any questions or should you wish to email us with any concerns you may have, please do not hesitate.

Literacy

This weeks spelling sound is  ‘ore’  which can be found in ‘shore and more’. Please encourage children to practise these at home.

This week the class homework is focusing on interpreting data from a bar chart as data handling is our most recent maths topic and is good revision for the class as we begin to look at other methods of data recording.

P6 Home Learning and News W.B 27th May 2019

Hi all,

This week is HEALTH WEEK with a focus on physical wellbeing. There are many activities planned so children should come to school in sports clothing if possible ( no football or team colours please).

Spelling – There will be NO new list this week. We’ll take a breather and revise some spelling in school instead.

Reading – We will read sports/health related articles in school as reading comprehension.

Pupil Talks/Kids Teach – Children should be preparing their presentations/lessons at home. I’ll catch up with everyone as to what they’re doing, what resources/spaces are needed and pencil in a date and time. Well done so far to AO, KT and ZM for their presentations/lessons.

Numeracy – The maths and numeracy this week will centre round sports so there will be opportunities for measure, time, probability and problem solving.

Here is a plan of the week:

08:50 Warm up in the playground to music

( Mon,Tues and Wed)

Monday

    P6  BIKEABILITY for those who applied.   Bring bikes AND helmets please.

SUMMER FAIR starts at 11:30am.  P6 pupils, UNLESS PICKED UP, will remain under my care until 12:25pm and then they can make their way home as usual. Please stress to your child ( as will I ) that they do not leave without checking in with me first so I can tick their names off my register. Thank you!

Phew! As you can see, it’s a busy week ahead but should be lots of fun!

Thanks for your support,

Miss Brunt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Regards,

Lisa Cumming
