P1P/P1S – Free Flow Fun

Image result for children playing clipart

Our Free Flow activities are chosen by the children. Every couple of weeks we have a discussion about the types of activities they would like to have, and I have to say, they chose well this week.

The children in our base just love maths and all things number so our “investigation” activity is maths based. They also love playing with the animals so our  “wonder” activity is all about researching information using the iPads and books. Our final activity allows the children to show off their “creative” side by using different painting resources. We are looking forward to seeing what the children come up with this week.

Here are a few photos of the children who chose these activities during today’s session.

P1C – W/B 13.01.20

Good afternoon! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.

Homework

Sounds: Our new sound is “oo”. Please continue to practise all of the sounds in the book bags. These should be looked over as often as possible at home. To challenge your child, please ask them to think of/find something that begins with or contains that specific sound.

Word Walls: Please continue to practise the words highlighted pink.

Reading: Your child has been given a new reading book. Please read over them with your child, discussing the story/words.

Listening & Talking: As a school we celebrate “All About Scotland” during the month of January. The children will be learning a Scottish poem of their choice to recite to the class later this month.  They should practise this poem as much as possible at home. Please click here for further details.

Maths: You will find a new Bingo sheet in the book bags. Please complete activity. Once completed, please sign and date the sheet beside the chosen task.

H&WB: I will be setting new targets for the children to complete. Target sheets will be issued at some point this week. Please click here for further details.

Reminders

P.E. will be on Monday and Wednesday. Please remember long hair should be tied back and earrings removed or covered.

Book bags should be checked each evening for homework and any letters which may have been issued. These letters should be removed from the book bag.

P1M/W Week Beginning 13/01

Good morning,

We hope you all had a relaxing weekend.

Homework for this week:

Reading – children have been issued with new reading books.  Please practice these with your child and encourage your child to sound out words (if applicable) and use the picture cues to help explain what is happening in the story.

Sounds – a new sound card for  ‘oo’ is in book bags to practice.  Please also continue to practice previously issued sounds.

Word walls – Please focus on learning to read the highlighted words in pink only.  Children need to learn to read these sight words and understand the meaning by putting the word ‘into an appropriate context in an oral sentence.  We will tick the word when your child can read the word immediately and highlight these words in green when your child shows confidence in using the words correctly in an oral sentence to show meaning.

Maths – children have been issued with a shape worksheet to help revise 2d shape recognition.

Reminders:

  • P.E. will be on Monday and Tuesday of this week. Earrings must be taped and long hair tied back.
  • Please ensure children bring a water bottle to school each day.
  • Read & munch will be on Friday of this week – children can bring in a healthy snack and book from home if they wish.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Image result for smiling face

Good afternoon! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. We have had a very busy first week back at school. The children have been working hard. Homework and reminders for the coming week can be found below.

Sounds: Our sound card for “oo” will be sent home this week. Please continue to practice all of the sounds in the book bags. These should be looked over as often as possible at home. To challenge your child, please ask them to think of/find something that begins with or contains that specific sound.

Word Walls: Please continue to check over these with your child as often as possible as this will build their confidence in reading the words independently. Only the words highlighted in yellow should be practiced. Your child should also be able to use these words correctly in a sentence. Once we are seeing your child do so, with confidence, we will highlight the box green.

Reading: New reading books will be sent home this week. Please read over them with your child, discussing the story/words. The children should sound out the words and, where necessary, use the picture cues to help them “read” the words.

New home readers have also been chosen and these will be kept for 2 weeks. Please read, and discuss,  the story with your child using the Three Sharings method. Library books will be collected in on Friday.

Listening & Talking: As a school we celebrate “All About Scotland” during the month of January. The children will be learning a Scottish poem of their choice to recite to the class later this month.  They should practice this poem as much as possible at home. Please click here for further details.

Maths: You will find a new Bingo sheet in the book bags. Please complete activity. Once completed, please sign and date the sheet beside the chosen task.

H&WB: As mentioned last weekwe will be setting new targets for the children to complete. Target sheets will be issued this week. Please click here for further details.

Term 3 Targets

This term our targets will be taking a slightly different format. Each of the children will be issued an individual school target after discussion with their class teacher, which we will work on regularly together. We would also like the children to have a personal target for them to work on at home. Please discuss with your child an area they will be able to focus on which will allow them to become a little more independent. This could be zipping their jackets, dressing themselves, putting their shoes on, using a knife and fork correctly or any other area that you feel they could benefit from. Our plan is to issue a new school target each month of term 3; as long as the previous target has been achieved.

Our targets sheets will be issued at some point over the coming week. You will be able to see the school target we have set for your child. If possible, home targets should be decided on by Friday (17th). Once home targets for January have been decided, please complete the relevant box on the sheet so the class teacher is aware of what you will be working towards with your child. You will also notice that there is a comment box, please feel free to complete this, if you wish, once the target has been achieved.

Thanking you in advance for your support with this.

Please choose ONE poem from the sheet that you will find in the bookbags tomorrow. We would be very grateful if you could work with your child to help them learn their poem and practice performing it in preparation for their performance.
