Monday– Holiday for all pupils
Tuesday – PE
Wednesday – Parents Evening
Thursday – Parents Afternoon
Friday – Summer Fair 11am – 1pm. A note will come home to check if you are able to pick your child up at 11am to take to the Summer Fair. Anyone who is not picked up, I’ll take to the fair and we’ll return to the classroom for 12:15pm dismissal as normal.
Homework as usual although this will be issued one day later due to the holiday.
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)
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.

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.
