Class Teacher: Miss Morrison
WOW!! Term 4 already. I can’t believe the children are nearly moving onto Primary 2. They had a great term last term with their Farm topic and all the different topics and areas they learned in Maths and Language. This term the children’s topic will be the Seaside which is a very exciting topic and gets the children all excited about the Summer holidays 🙂 They will also take part in their first Sports Day in school which is also very exciting. Primary 1 will also take part in transition activities where they will help the new Primary 1 children feel welcome in Barsail and excited to come to school 🙂
Please sign every night.
It would be helpful if your child has credit union or book club money to note on the diary the amount and where it is (envelope/purse etc).
Please remove old homework diaries/letters/work from homework packages each week. This helps your child to find things in their homework package much easier.
Please label everything your child has (write both names).
The homework diary is a 2 way means of communication so please use this to write notes/ letters/queries to use.
Sound Sheet: children should practise sounds on their sound sheet most nights. Each week we plan to teach 2 sounds.
Shared Reading: the children will choose a book from the library that can be read TO you, WITH you or BY you. They can change this book daily or keep it for a couple of nights if you would like more time with the story.
A book the children can read to you: the will also take a book home with them which they can try to read to you.
Handwriting: please complete only one page of the booklet on a Tuesday.
Language Grid: children will be given a language homework grid soon where they can choose 2 activities to do each week.
Text sheets: some weeks the children will be given home a piece of text to read where they can add their own sentence to the story or copy a part of the text.
Maths: children will be given maths homework each week. This may be a worksheet or an active activity we want the children to complete.
Maths: please practise number bond flashcards. Children will be tested again on the 5th May 2017.
Additional Homework: any additional homework will be highlighted in bold on the homework diary. Please make sure you look out for this 🙂 !!!! Also if the children cannot complete their homework one night e.g. maths homework sheet/handwriting homework then please pop a note on their diary.
As your child progresses with their reading you may wish to try some of the strategies to make reading even more fun and interesting.
