I hope everyone had a lovely weekend, despite the strong winds!
Here is some information about what’s coming up in the next few weeks.
Space Project – Home Learning – Pupil Talk/Presentation.
- Children have been asked to research and produce a 5 minute presentation with a follow up activity about Space for week beginning Monday 23rd November. Children can work solo or in pairs. No-one will be forced to deliver in front of the whole class if especially anxious about this. Children can also have time in school to work on this; it does not have to be produced on a computer. An information letter with more details will be sent home soon.
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.
Please bring in a suitable (smooth) stone/pebble ASAP.
Each class will have the opportunity to buy a poppy so children should bring a donation with them.
Children in Need – P6 have been tasked with organising a little fun event for the whole school on Friday 13th November, which is Children in Need day. Details to follow!
PE – Tuesday – Children should come to school with appropriate waterproof clothing for outdoor exercise and play.
Spelling Homework– as normal
Numeracy – There will be no homework sent home whilst work on the Space presentations is ongoing. However, children have been asked to practise times tables DAILY for 5 -10 minutes. The onus is on them to do this, we cannot do it for them! Children should have brought home their own strategy card for ideas.
Reading – All children will get a new book to read in class this week.
Learning Trio Sheets – These were given out on Friday. Please read, complete the tear off slip and return to me.
