Nativity: We are well under way with our rehearsals and we are looking forward to performing for the school and parents. We are performing the Nativity for the parents on Monday 12th December at 2pm.
Christmas Fair: Our annual fundraiser is on Friday 2nd December and we are still collecting donations for our stalls. We are looking for chocolate, bottles, nearly new toys and gifts. Thank you. P7 are doing a ‘Guess the name of the teddy bear’ and ‘How many sweets are in the jar’ fundraiser on Wed/Thurs – guesses are 50p.
Thursday 8th December – School Christmas lunch and Christmas jumper day. Please hand in your child’s Christmas lunch preferences ASAP.
Wednesday 14th December – Panto for Nursery to P4
Friday 16th December – P1/2 Christmas Party. Children can come to school dressed for their Christmas party!
Reading: Some children have moved onto a new stage of reading books (Stage 2), with each book they will get a little green piece of card with new key words they have to learn. By the end of the Stage 2 books, they have to know all of their key words by sight before moving onto a new Stage. For example, the first Stage 2 book is ‘The Toys’ Party’ and the key words printed on green card are ‘he, was, put’. Please remember to sign your child’s green reading record when homework has been completed.
Sounds: We are learning v and oo (short oo and long oo) this week. The children will only have two phonic worksheets to complete – one for v and one for oo. Please ensure your child completes these as it so important for them to practise their letter formation when writing new sounds.
Please ensure that your child brings their book bag to school EVERYDAY, as we will be doing reading everyday. They will be kept in school on a Friday, in order to have new homework ready for the following Monday.
P.E will be on Wednesday with Miss Simpson and Thursday with Mrs Lynch.
