Well what a wonderful first week back! It has been so lovely getting to know the class and they have all settled in so well.
Just a gentle reminder that children should not be bringing anything extra to school with them (toys, notebooks etc.), they only need a water bottle, lunch and snack. Children can bring a pencil case with them if they wish but we have provided every child with their own supplies too.
P.E. is on Wednesday afternoons (12:30 – 3:00) and children should come dressed for outdoor P.E. They should also be bringing a suitable jacket to wear outside for breaks as we will be maximising our time spent outside.
Mrs Cumming will be joining us on a Monday afternoon (1:45 – 3:15) to do science with us every week – how exciting!
This week is the first week of homework and it will consist of 3 things: reading, spelling and a maths/numeracy task. It will be set on Monday and should be returned on Friday.
Reading📚 – This week the children are being put into their reading groups and will bring their reading book home on a Monday. This should be brought back to school every day so they can participate in their reading during class time.
Spelling✏️ – Every Monday, the children will copy their spelling list for the week into their jotter. Their spelling homework must be completed in cursive handwriting and presented neatly as it is important to take pride in our work in Primary 5. For spelling if the children could write their list twice in cursive and then they can pick one of the following activities to do with their words.
Maths/Numeracy🔢 – We are going to start looking at time this week for our maths topic. I have uploaded a time worksheet for the children to complete on Google Classroom. Please remember to submit this by Friday! If you have trouble accessing this or would rather a paper copy, then please just let me know, that is not a problem.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend,
Miss Lauren Waller
