I can’t believe that Primary 1 are already in Term 3, where has the time gone? Our topic is The Farm and we have been exploring and experimenting with different materials to create exciting art work. We are hosting a drop-in session where parents, grandparents and all are invited to see our fantastic work! The big buddies have been helping with reading and often spend Friday Fun with the children. In maths, Primary 1 are learning number stories and subtraction to 10 through a variety of fun activities. They also enjoy learning 2 interesting facts a week and sharing them with their parents.
We are also promoting reading engagement within the classroom so have created a library corner to encourage reading. This helps to create a calm and positive ethos in which children can relax in the library corner and take a book to read. We welcome any book contributions to help us fill our library with wonderful books!
Please sign diaries every night
If your child has credit union or book club money could you please write on diary and the amount and where it is (enveloped/zippy part of folder)
Take out old diaries/letters/work each week so that children can find things more easily
Please label everything your child has (both names)
The diary is a two ways means of communication so, feel free to write any notes or queries and I will reply, also you can always contact me at the end of the school day or make an appointment with the office.
Sound Sheet – children should practice sounds on their sound sheet every night. Each week we will plan for two sounds to be added to the sound sheet. However, some weeks we do a revision of phonics so we will not add new sounds then.
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 – will focus on areas the children have been learning about and will be handed out every Monday to be completed for Thursday.
Thanks! – Miss Byrne 🙂
As your child progresses with their reading you may wish to try some of the strategies to make reading even more fun and interesting.
