First Minister’s Reading Challenge

Good afternoon,

Today all children were issued with a Reading Passport to allow them to take part in the First Minister’s Reading Challenge.  Children are being encouraged to read as many books as possible throughout the term and record this in their passport. This is a national initiative – more information can be found at www.readingchallenge.scot

We appreciate your support and encouragement in this.

Many thanks,

Miss Cuthill

P1C – Week Beginning 17/02/20

Good morning!

I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend.

Homework

Sounds: Sound cards for “th” have been added to the book bags. Please continue to practise all of the sounds.

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 pink should be practised. Your child should also be able to use these words correctly in a sentence.

Reading: New reading books have been issued. Please read them with your child, discussing the story/words. The children should sound out the words and, where necessary, use the picture clues to help them “read” the words.

Your child has chosen a new picture book to read for enjoyment. Please enjoy reading this with them using the 3 sharings.

Maths:  A new maths sheet has been added to the book bags. Please choose one of the dotted activities to complete this week. Once completed, please sign and date the sheet beside the chosen task.

H&WB: New targets for February will be added to your child’s target sheet this week. If you feel your child has achieved their January home target, please complete the relevant comment box. A new home target for February should also be set.  Please click here for further details.

Reminders

  1. P.E. will be on Monday and Wednesday. Please remember long hair should be tied back and earrings removed or covered.
  2. 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.
  3. As a school, we are aiming to increase our outdoor learning experiences for the children.  Some of the children already have wellies in class, however if your child does not and has wellies at home, could these be brought into class please.
  4. Read and Munch will be on Friday this week.
  5. Details of our Open Afternoon can be found here.

As always, if you have any questions regarding homework, please do not hesitate to contact me.

On Friday 28th February we will be having our Open Afternoon. This will be taking place between 2.00pm-3.00pm.  We would like to invite one guest per child to join us. During this time you will have the opportunity to play some of the activities the children enjoy using in our Free Flow sessions.

Our afternoon will begin in the gym hall where the children will perform a few songs, therefore you should enter the school via the school office. After this we will return to the classrooms and open area to participate in a few of the children’s chosen activities.

We look forward to seeing you there.

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.
