P5 Week Beginning 25/10/21

Parents and Carers,

I hope that you have all had an enjoyable and restful week. The children have all returned full of news and seem happy to be back at school.

We have a busy couple of weeks ahead. This week we are having a Health Week where we are learning about keeping our bodies healthy.

We are also going to be learning about climate change with some COP26 activities as this is obviously very relevant to us all. Most of this work will be next week, I will let you know more information about this next week. In preparation for one of the activities we need your help please:

WANTED! Can you please send in any empty and washed Tetra Packs (cardboard juice/milk containers) even better if they have foil insides! URGENT!

As part of the Midlothian Science Festival we are meeting a scientist called Susan Jarvis. Her specialism is in animal science and is particularly interested in animal behaviour and welfare. Today the children produced a lot of questions for her so it looks like it will be an interesting session.

I have not sent reading homework home today, this will start tomorrow – please see their reading books as usual.

Spelling homework this week is about health vocabulary – please see your child’s homework jotter.

DRESS DOWN DAY: On Friday 29th October children can dress down in clothes that make them feel happy. This could be a favourite T-shirt, whole outfit or dress etc. Please ensure that no accessories are sent in as part of their outfit. 

Three letters were sent home today – PLEASE CHECK YOUR CHILD’S BAG.

  • Milk letter to be returned by Monday 1st November
  • Parent / Child / Teacher Trio meetings to be returned by Friday 29th October.¬† N.B. If you choose to have a telephone consultation this will be arranged for a different date to the ones stated on the form.
  • Guitar lesson letter.

PE was today and Thursday as usual and we have Mandarin on Wednesday and an assembly on Friday.

The children all have their SUMDOG passwords to help them with their numeracy learning.

If children want or need to use Google Classroom they can no longer access this through GLOW. Every child in Midlothian has been given a new email and login for Google Workspace. This is how they will access Google Classroom  More information about this will be shared soon.

As always, if you have any queries or concerns please see me at the classroom door or drop me an email or phone call.

Many thanks,

Lisa Cumming
