Spelling word list below and in the blue homework jotter. Please also do 3 sentences using the spelling words.
When the letter ‘g’ is followed by the vowels e, i or y then its sound is usually changed from the hard ‘g’ sound to a soft ‘g’ sound as in ‘magic’ or ‘giant’
Please use the grid to help learn the spellings or use LOOK, COVER, WRITE, CHECK.

Please complete an activity from the grid in the back of the homework jotter.

On Thursday we will be having an online drumming session which I am sure will be good fun!

P7 Homework – Week Beg: Monday 5th October

Hi P7,

This week for homework there will be a maths task, spellings practice and revision of our fractions worksheet for Mrs Caldwell.

Homework is due on Friday 9th October.

There will be a Fractions Friday every week now, beginning this week. Mrs Caldwell will set a short test for pupils to practise their fractions knowledge.

NOTE: I will be providing paper copies for pupils who are still having issues with accessing Google Classroom.

Maths Activity
For homework this week, our activity is on Time.
This will be related to work we have been working on in class.
Learning Intention: We are learning to find information from timetables and solve time intervals.

What do I need to do?
1. Read the timetable and look at the time schedule of the tv programmes.
2. To workout the answer you are adding on or subtracting the units of time.
3. Complete the calculation and write your answer on the Google Doc.

Fractions Friday
The work to be revised and learnt for the test is on a worksheet that has been given to each pupil already.

Where do I write my answers?
Complete these questions by editing the google document, or do them on an A4 page, then post a picture of your completed work.

Thanks for your support,
Mr Nelson

P4 Homework & Update – October 2020

Dear All,

We have enjoyed a great September learning in our outdoor spaces and will continue this into October. As the weather is changing, it is really important that pupils come to school with a warm and waterproof jacket and appropriate footwear. When we are working indoors,  it is extremely important our classrooms are kept well ventilated so the windows will be open throughout the day. Please ensure that your child also brings a warm jumper/fleece as it can get chilly. 


  • Spelling: pupils write their new spelling words in their homework jotter on Wednesday every week. At home they should use:


to write out their new spelling words three times in neat columns. They should also complete an activity card which will earn pupils 2 credit card points. An optional second activity may be completed for extra practice (and 1 credit card point) but is not mandatory. Completed spelling homework should be returned the following Tuesday to be marked and the next spelling pattern will be given for homework on Wednesday each week.

  • Numeracy & Maths: please use the enclosed activity sheet to practise work which has been taught in class. Pupils can write straight onto this sheet so no need to copy into their jotters and this can be returned in their folder on Tuesday of the following week.
  • Reading: all pupils have been allocated a reading book which will go home twice per week to be read with an adult. It is extremely important that this activity is done at home as only through regular reading practice, will children improve this valuable life skill! Please ensure your child’s reading book is returned to school on the date written on the bookmark. It would also be helpful if you could initial this when you have heard your child read.
  • PE/Health & Wellbeing: this will be an outdoor activity where possible and to that end, can children please come dressed for outdoor PE on the allocated day each week (see dates below).  An outdoor kit will consist of trainers, jogging bottoms/leggings, t-shirt, fleece and outdoor showerproof jacket. We have no changing areas at present so children will wear their kit for the day.
