P4 resources appeal.

Hi all,

After the trip next week we are beginning Forces our new science topic. We are going to combine this with music and design and technology.

We need some materials to help us make instruments such as:

Plastic tubs (margarine, icecream or old Tupperware)

Pringles tubs

Biscuit tins, coffee tins, other tins without sharp edges


For the science aspect if anyone has any:

old material, carpet, lino, tile, magnets or toy cars (wheeled toys) that we could use/ borrow then this would be much appreciated.

Blue Group- News Reports week 2- A fishy situation: We have discussed a news report in class. Read again at home and answer the questions on the worksheet you have been given.  (Please note, the group didn’t get their activity home today!- I will make sure they get it tomorrow (Wednesday)

Pink – See bookmark

Orange – See bookmark

Green –  See bookmark.

*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.

P2 Homework W/B 15.5.17

P2 Homework this week:

Reading – see book bags for updates. On Tuesday, some pupils will get reading strategy cards home- these will just mirror work done in class on how to work out tricky words. Please use as a reading aid for Songbird Phonics reading practice. Thank you.

Spelling – There are only 6 weeks of spelling homework left as I won’t set homework for the final week! I am sending home the final sheet but have crossed out three lists. So, please do List 32 ‘er’ this week. For the last three weeks of term, we will concentrate on common words.

Numeracy – This week, we’ll look at adding on 10 to numbers. I’ll send home new ‘LearnIt’ cards on Wednesday ( unless otherwise specified).

Thanks to all who have completed recent Sumdog challenges.

Topic- Local Study – We have been talking about Loanhead and where we live. Interestingly, not many children knew their address. Can you make sure your child knows their address and if possible, a phone number for you?

Poetry– children will be having a chance to write a wee poem for the annual Loanhead PS Poetry Competition.

PE- is on Monday and Thursday this week. ( Monday is our final gymnastics session)

Dress Down Day – is on Friday 19th May. Children may dress down but can they possibly bring a wee something to be wrapped up for the tombola for the Summer Fair which is not far away, on Friday 26th May. Thanks.

Reminder– Monday 22nd May is a holiday for pupils but an in-service for school staff.
