🎅CHRISTMAS CARDS – Info and Deadline🎄

I can’t believe it is this time of year, in such strange times it is great to have some excitement.  The children have been busy creating Christmas cards for our annual fundraiser and these should be coming home on 6th Nov.

You can choose the greeting inside, or leave it blank.  It does not have to be Christmas.  We have some Happy New Year cards made or Eid cards made and I like to create Thank You cards for my children to send out after Christmas.  There are many options.

If you wish to order, you must return the order form and design with payment back to school in a polly pocket or sealed envelope.  You can pay cheque, cash or ParentPay.

If you would like a blank order form for siblings etc there will be some spare at the school office.  The cards will be collected by our design company on Thurs 12th, please can you return to school, with payment, ASAP.

This is always a fun fundraiser and the children really enjoy seeing their designs in “real life items”.

Thanks for your support.

 

Mrs Hinton and all at Loanhead Primary

Hello,

Please ensure that children come to school with a warm, waterproof jacket, snack and water bottle every single day.

🧥Children  may wish to bring an extra jumper in with them as the classroom can get chilly due to having to keep the windows open for ventilation. Please ensure this is clearly labelled with your child’s name.

🎨 Remembrance Day – Wednesday 11th November. P7 and Mr Nelson have asked children to bring in a plain pebble which will be painted with a poppy design and varnished in school. It is hoped that a memorial place for these pebbles will be created within the school grounds. Children can bring these pebbles in this week! Poppies are also being sold from today, it is a suggested donation of £1. 

🏃🏼‍♂️P.E is on Wednesday, please ensure children come dressed appropriately for P.E as it will be outside.

We have just started our class novel – Michael Morpurgo ‘Cool’ and we will be completing various literacy activities alongside it.

All Learning Trio’s will be completed and sent home by Friday 6th November. Please fill in and send back in the slip within the attached letter. Thank you.

Homework 📝

Reading📚 – Pages to be read will be written into your child’s green reading record daily. Please sign beside the date to evidence it has been completed.

Maths/Numeracy 🔢 – There will be a task uploaded on Google Classroom tomorrow morning. I will have printed copies for those who cannot access Google Classroom.

Hello!

I hope you have all had a wonderful and relaxing October holiday.

👩🏻‍💻 I will not be in school until Friday this week so I can only apologise that all the Learning Trio target sheets will be completed and given home by next Friday  (6th November) instead of this coming Friday. Apologises for this. 

🏃🏼‍♂️P.E. is on Wednesday afternoon so please come appropriately dressed for this, as the weather is ever changing.

⭐️ ZOOM Assembly on Friday at 11:30AM.

📝 This week may look a little different as I will not be in class with the children until Friday but homework should remain the same with reading and spelling.

I am still available to contact via Google Classroom or email (L.Waller@mgfl.net), if you need anything, then please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Hello,

🔬 No science with Mrs Cumming as she is teaching Primary 3 this week.

🏃🏼‍♂️ P.E is on Wednesday afternoon, please ensure your child comes dressed appropriately for this as we are not allowed to do it inside.

🗣 Pupils will be presenting their pupil talks this week, the talk timetable was discussed on Monday in class, and posted on Google Classroom for everyone to refer to. **Please note that due to the current climate, children should not bring any items from home in for this. Instead pictures can be emailed to me and I can share these on the smart board with the class. 

💻 On Thursday afternoon we will have an online workshop with an ex-miner! This will be very exciting as we have been learning about what it was like to work in the mines during the Victorian era.

Check out our charcoal pictures of us as chimney sweeps! We have put them on display in the school hallway for everyone to see.

Homework 📝

Reading 📚- Pages to be read will be written in your child’s reading record daily.

Spelling✏️ – The new spelling list will be copied down on Monday morning.

We will go back to having a maths/numeracy task to complete on Google Classroom after the holidays.

*Remember school closes this Friday (16th October) for the October holidays and pupils will return at 8:50am on Tuesday 27th October.* 

Thank you all for your support so far this term and I wish you all a restful holiday when it comes,

Hi all,

The winter weather is beginning to creep up on us, so please ensure your child brings a warm and waterproof jacket to school. We also have to keep classroom windows open for ventilation, so you may wish to give your child a jumper/hoody to bring incase they get a little chilly in class.

🔬 We won’t have science with Mrs Cumming on Monday but we will have a science/STEM lesson later on in the week instead.

P.E is on Wednesday, so please remember to dress appropriately for this.

🥁 On Thursday afternoon (2pm – 3pm), we will have a virtual music lesson from Danny. You may remember him from previous years, he comes in to teach classes drumming. However, due to the current climate, we will be participating virtually and it will be body percussion instead of using instruments.

Hi all,

I hope you enjoyed the long weekend, I think it was very much needed! ☺️

Some children may have different books this week, so your child may come home saying they are in a new reading group.

Homework 📝 (Set on Tuesday and to be returned on Friday)

Reading 📚- Children should bring their reading record and book to school everyday. Pages to be read will be written in your child’s green record daily.

Spelling✏️- The children have copied their new spelling words into their spelling jotter.

There will be no maths/numeracy task for the next few weeks, as a letter will be put on Google Classroom on Friday with information about pupil talks.

P.E. is on Wednesday afternoons, please remember to come dressed for it.

Mrs Donnelly is hoping to host a virtual assembly on Friday for the school too, how exciting!

If you need anything then please don’t hesitate to get in contact – L.Waller@mgfl.net

P5 Info – 14.9.20✨

Hi all,

🔬 We won’t be having science next Monday with Mrs Cumming but we will still be doing science with me in the afternoon, so there aren’t any timetable changes.

🏃🏼‍♂️Our P.E block  is on Wednesday afternoons, please ensure your child is dressed for P.E outside and brings a water bottle with water only. Thank you.

🧠 We will be having 10 minute brain breaks in the afternoons as they are longer than usual (2.5 hours). This is just an active break between our lessons in the afternoon to allow the children to move and feel ready for the rest of the afternoon. This could vary from a little jog outside, a GoNoodle video or some Yoga! Children can bring an extra snack in for this time as they may get hungry by this time, or they can leave something behind from their packed lunch.

🌟 We have introduced the ‘Zones of Regulation’ in our classroom and this is a great way to help myself and the class discuss our emotions and coping strategies. There are four zones, which you can find below, and there is no negative zone. For example, if you feel like you are in the red zone then this is not a bad thing as we can all feel multiple emotions throughout the day. The most important thing is we begin to think of strategies to help us self- regulate and bring ourselves closer to the green zone.

Homework 📝 (Set on Monday and to be returned on Friday)

Reading📚 – Pages to be read will be written into your child’s green reading record daily. Please sign beside the date to evidence it has been completed. Thank you!

Spelling✏️- A new list will be copied down on Monday morning.

Maths/Numeracy 🔢 – We have been learning how to read and write 6 digit numbers this week, so the worksheet on Google Classroom is a revision of this. If you have any issues with logging into Google Classroom, then please email me so I can fix this. I will hand out paper copies of the homework to those who cannot access GC. 

School Holidays – Friday 18th September and Monday 21st September. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller
