P4 Homework 8/3/16

The children are working very hard in class this week on assessments. Therefore, there will be no formal reading or spelling homework.

Reading will still be heard in class but we won’t send any reading home as the lessons we would normally use to set the homework are used for the assessment time.

Maths and Numeracy

There will however be some maths and numeracy homework distributed. Each child should have 4 worksheets to complete.

These cover multiplication and division by 10 and division in fractions. This is work that the children have recently covered in class and should be revision. However if you need any tips on how to help using the methods that we did in class, please let me know. Also, if anyone needs to borrow any cubes etc, they are welcome to do so.

Sumdog: as normal.

Learnits: There is no need to cover Learn its this week if you are short on time, maths homework can be tricky for all.

P3 Homework

The boys and girl are working very hard in class this week on assessments. Therefore, there will be no formal homework.

Children can go onto sumdog and also think about their Truly Terrific project. Reading will be heard in class when possible but we won’t send any reading home. Please keep reading your own books at home!

P5 Homework for 18/3/16 – PRESENTATION

Notes on homework – has been discussed in class in great detail.  Pupils have good knowledge of this already but are expected to give their side of the argument based on facts they have researched. This is an activity where they are required to read, make judgements on good sources of evidence and form an opinion (based on facts) which they can present to the class.

P2 Homework/Events W/B 7.3.16

Events this week:

Tuesday – Drumming workshop

Thursday and Friday – PE


Reading – Last week, during the focus for World Book Day, all children showed great concentration and enthusiasm for reading. To keep up this momentum, I would like all children to have their own chosen reading material in school for times known as ERIC (Everyone Reads In Class).I will talk to the children about this on Monday. As children progress, they should be encouraged to read for pleasure each day for at least 20 minutes. Reading homework is as usual so please check the green homework bags daily.

Spelling/Handwriting – the focus this week is ‘oi’ as in oil, boil etc.

NumeracyOdd and Even numbers- Investigations and poster task

  • In order that children fully understand that even numbers are divisible by 2 and odd numbers are not, please can you practise odd/evens in everyday tasks at home eg. your child could help to pair up socks or shoes; counting fruit and deciding if the number is odd/even by pairing up or seeing if he/she can make two equal groups. Be imaginative but try and use normal everyday tasks to do this!
  • Make a visual aid/poster displaying information about odd and even numbers up to 20 or 100 or even beyond. Highlight the fact that numbers that end with 0,2,4,6 or 8 are even and obviously, those that end with 1,3,5,7 or 9, are odd.

I look forward to discussing the odd/even investigative tasks children did at home and displaying the posters around the class.

Thanks in advance for your support,

Miss Brunt

A fabulous ending to our week of extreme reading!

What a fantastic week of extreme reading throughout Loanhead Primary School!  All classes from Nursery to P7 have enjoyed spontaneous reading this week – when a bell goes, they read until it stops no matter what they are in the middle of.  We have had shared reading, paired reading, reading reviews, dramatic presentations, literacy homework with a reading focus, author focus and our brilliant celebration day today where we all dressed as a favourite book character – what a hoot!  Have a look at our efforts below 😉
