We have a short week this week. Friday 20th November is an in-service day and school is closed for pupils.
On Thursday each P1 child will be bringing home a Bookbug P1 Family Bag. This is a gift from the Scottish Book Trust and yours to keep. Inside you will find lots of things to share together.
This week we will be learning the sounds u and l. We will be thinking of things which start with these initial sounds and finding out how to form the letters.
Any discussion at home about things which start with these letters will help with the learning of the sounds.
This week we will be moving on to the topic of information handling. The children will be sorting things into sets and finding out about Carroll Diagrams, pictograms and bar graphs.
We are now moving on to our next topic which is Showtime. This is usually the time when we prepare for the Christmas Concert, but this year we have to do things differently. You will find some homework related to this topic on our Google Classroom. The children will still have the opportunity to be an audience member and a performer but some of these opportunities will need to be virtual.
This week we will also be reading the books in the Bookbug Family Bags and doing some related activities as it is Scottish Book Week.
