Thursday and Friday – PE as usual
Homework: Given out Monday or Tuesday as normal
Reading – all pupils will get a new book this week and a Scots poem home to read. Thanks to all who completed the reading task about Tim Peake last week. We will continue to talk about the ISS this week and maybe even ‘tweet’ Tim some of our work!
Spelling/Handwriting -the focus sound is igh. There are not many igh words on the handwriting sheet so we will work on more igh words in class.
Numeracy: an addition sheet will be sent home. Strategies to try are:
- Count on from the biggest number first so with 4+8, try 8+4 instead. Use a number line or even fingers if needed!
- Use ‘Learn its’ knowledge to answer sums eg. 6+7 is the same as 6 + 6 + 1
Sumdog Challenge: this week is a P2 Fractions Challenge. I’ve limited the target to just 30 questions. I will go over this task in class as the questions may prove challenging! Still, with our ‘have a go’ attitude, we can encourage the children to participate and hopefully learn lots more about the concept of fractions.
Thanks for your support,
