P1M / P1W Week Beginning 03/02

Good afternoon,

We hope you are having a great weekend.

Homework for this week:

Reading – your child has been issued with a new reading book. Please practice this with your child and encourage them to sound out words (if applicable) and use the picture clues to help explain what is happening in the story.

Sounds – new sound cards have been added for ‘ch’ and ‘sh’. Please continue to practice previously issued sounds.

Word walls – word walls have been checked and put back into book bags. Please focus on trying to read the highlighted words in pink only. Children need to learn to read these words by sight (rather than sounding out) and understand the meaning by putting 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 – please complete the addition sheet provided.

Health & Wellbeing – Children have been issued with a new school target for February (or a continuing target from January).  Please evaluate your child’s personal target and set a new target for February to practice at home. More information on this task can be found here.

Reminders:

  • P.E. will be on Monday & Tuesday of this week. Earrings must be taped and long hair tied back.
  • Please ensure children bring a water bottle to school every day.
  • There will be no read and munch this week since Friday is an In- Service day.
  • If children are going to Active Schools clubs straight after school, please bring P.E. kits back to school the next day.

First Minister’s Reading Challenge

Your child will be coming home with their reading passport. This is a whole school initiative, therefore we would encourage you to complete this with your child for any books read at home. Please keep them in book bags as we will be discussing these in class.

Scottish Poems

Finally, all children recited their Scottish Poem to the class and we were amazed at their wonderful performances.  A huge well done to all the children who took part and many thanks for your support with this.  Following a judging process from the upper school and Management Team, one finalist from each class will be performing at our Scottish Assembly on Thursday and we wish them the best of luck with this.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions.

Miss Murray & Miss Wilson
