*NEW*   Numeracy- Keep going with your Learnits. If there are any people who need new learnits can you write a note and let me know.

Learnits- The Rules…

The children are asked the question on the learnits card on several occasions and if they answer correctly,  within about two seconds, they can have a tick. Once they have ten ticks they can throw the learnit away. Once the envelope is empty they can have some new learnits. You can keep the envelope at home until it needs refilled.

Don’t feel you have to do all of them at once. A few at a time is sufficient.

## Primary 4- Scottish Book Trust monthly writing competition

Primary 4 and I are taking part in a monthly writing competition run by the Scottish Book Trust.

The children will get a chance to write a 50 word “story” based on a visual prompt provided by the book trust.

The children should enter the “young writers” category.

I have started a creative writing course and will be taking part in this too. Why don’t you have a go?

This month is:

Write a story that features the roll of a dice.

There will be an opportunity for the children to brainstorm ideas in class and write some ideas for their story as well as begin to write it.

I would appreciate it if you could help them to apply at home when they bring you their completed piece of writing.

The website is:

and all information can be found there. There are also examples of last months winners.

Every month we will post a few entries on the website so that you can see what the children have been writing.
