P5 Info – 30.11.20

Hi all,

Just a gentle reminder that children should come dressed appropriately for P.E on Wednesday’s and they can bring in an extra hoody/jumper to wear in the class.

🔬We had science with Mrs Cumming yesterday afternoon and learned all about water filtration. The children had lots of fun creating their own fair experiments of water filters.

*Mrs Cumming is gathering some materials for science, we are looking for the following: empty plastic bottles (2 litre ones), water bottle caps (the ones you push up and down) and any old CD’s/DVD’s. Thank you.*

Yesterday (Monday), every child recieved a letter regarding our filming of a Christmas song in school. This year every class has chosen a Christmas song and we will be filming us lip syncing or using sign language along with the song. This letter must be initialled against every statement and signed by Monday 7th December, if you wish for your child to take part. If this letter is not returned or filled out then your child will not be taking part. 

Christmas Decorations – On Thursday, we will be decorating wooden Christmas tree decorations that students at Newbattle HS created. These will be decorated by P5/6 and then delivered to the local care homes to decorate their outdoor trees.

Christmas Cards – Children can begin to send each other Christmas cards. They can post them Mon-Thurs, cards will then be quarantined and handed out on the following Monday by P7. Please ensure the child’s class is written on the front.

Christmas Celebration –  Children can wear a Christmas jumper this day rather than bring other clothes to change into. We will be watching a Panto ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and having some time outside to play!  Thursday 17th December. Cost £2 (This covers food, prizes and a charity donation).

⭐️ ZOOM Assembly on Friday at 11:30AM.

Homework 📝

Reading 📚- Pages to be read will be written in your child’s reading record daily. Please ensure reading is completed every night with an emphasis on expression.

Spelling✏️ – The new spelling list was copied down yesterday morning (Monday).

Maths/Numeracy 🔢 – Apologises that the homework was not uploaded onto Google Classroom last week, I had quite a few technical issues. This week I have printed the numeracy worksheet and children will bring this home today.

Thank you,

Miss Lauren Waller
