Class Teacher: Miss Morrison
I can’t believe the children are already in Term 3. They have made so much progress since beginning Primary 1 and are continuing to do so in term 3. This term the children’s topic is The Farm. The children are already showing lots of enthusiasm and we look forwards to finding out lots of fun facts and creating lots of exciting artwork. The children will have a Drop – In day this term where parents, grandparents etc are invited in after school to see some of the exciting work the children have been doing 🙂 Also keep looking on the blog for updates on the variety of work we are doing!!!!
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.
Handwriting: please complete only one page of the booklet on a Tuesday.
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 first on Number day (3rd February and set dates afterwards)
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.
