Term 2 Newsletter

Primary 5P newsletter – November 2018

Dear Parents,
Welcome back to Term 2. I hope you all had a lovely October break. This term, the children will continue to be supported in class by Mrs Rhodie.
We have an exciting trip to the Gordon Highlanders Museum this term to link in with our learning about WW1 and Remembrance Day. Look out for a letter home with the information about it.
During term 2, we will be reading a class novel, Charlotte’s Web. The children will be engaged in whole class reading sessions and will complete tasks based on the novel to deepen their understanding of the text.
In Maths this term, the children will be working on money, time and weight and volume. They will also continue to follow the “Big Maths” programme to improve their mental calculations where they take part in a weekly CLIC challenge and Total Recall Challenge to improve their personal scores.
In reading and spelling, the children follow the Active Literacy Programme alongside the Reflective Reading strategies which will improve their skills in understanding of a text. Furthermore, they will continue to follow the Big Write Programme which allows children to focus on up levelling writing by using vocabulary, connectives, openers and punctuation. We are all very excited about our new library which will be opening very soon. We will visit the library weekly so that the children have an opportunity to take books home or leave in class for ERIC time (Enjoy Reading in Class).

Just a reminder of any other information you may find useful:

• Our timetable: We have PE on a Thursday and Friday. Please ensure that your child has their PE kits for those days. A reminder that jewellery should be taken out or covered with a plaster for these days.

• Reading:

o Groups 1, 2 and 3 will have reading on a Monday and Thursday. Groups 4 and 5 will have reading on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure you sign your child’s reading record when completed at home.

• Homework: Maths and spelling homework will be given out every Monday and should be handed in on Thursday. Maths homework is a consolidation of what your child has been learning in class and should never be anything new. If there is an issue with homework, please ensure your child speaks with me before Thursday to ensure it is handed in on time. Please leave me a comment in their jotter if you have any questions regarding the homework.

As always, feel free to contact me if you have any questions or queries.

Miss Petrie
