Our Festive Wonderland

On Friday we had our House Art Day. In the morning the children started making their craft for the Christmas Fayre which is being held on Saturday. Further details of this event will follow later in the week.

In our houses we each made a display for our Festive Wonderland in the Open Area ……. and it looks fabulous! The children will have the opportunity to play in it during our Free Flow sessions over the next few weeks.

Here are some photos of each of the houses with their completed displays.

 

P1M & P1W Week Beginning 02/12

Good afternoon,

We hope you are having a lovely weekend.

A huge thank you to everyone who handed in items to help with our role play festive wonderland – the children had a great time helping to make everything and our area looks amazing for the children to enjoy this week.

Homework for this week:

Sounds

New sound cards have been issued for ‘z’ and ‘w’. Please also continue to practise all previously issued sounds.

Jolly Phonics Z Song

Jolly Phonics W Song

Word Walls

Please work on the highlighted words in pink ONLY.  Children need to learn to read these sight words and understand the meaning by putting the word into the 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. If you have any questions or problems with this, please let us know.

Reading

New reading books will be issued during the week. – please practise these with your child and encourage your child to sound out the words (if applicable) and use the picture clues to explain what is happening in the story.

 

Maths

Please complete the number five page only this week.

The children have been learning the months of the year  – if you would like to practice at home, here is the song we have been learning – months of the year song.

Notes

  • Read & munch will be on Friday of this week.  Children can bring in a book from home and healthy snack.
  • Book bags should be brought to school every day so that we can work on word walls, sounds and reading with your child.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask.

Primary 1 are looking for a variety of things to help us transform the area between our classrooms into a role play festive wonderland. If you have any of the following items lying around the house and you are happy to donate them, please send into school by Friday. Thank you!

We are looking for:

  • wrapping paper
  • cotton wool
  • recycled cardboard boxes, cards, envelopes (anything that the children can use to create their own gifts and write their own letters.)

P1M /P1W Nativity Parts

Good afternoon,

Your child has been issued with their part for our class nativity. Some children have a speaking part, some children have a singing or dancing part. If your child has a speaking part, a slip of paper with their line/lines has been put in their book bag.

We would ask that you practice their lines at home. We will also practice in school. Little and often works best.

We can’t wait for you to see our performance.

On a different note, can we please ask that you practise zipping up winter coats with children and putting on hats, scarves, gloves etc. – your help with this is much appreciated.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Miss Murray and Miss Wilson.
