Children read book clipart. Free download transparent .PNG | Creazilla

A few of our Reading for Enjoyment books were not returned to school today. We totally understand that this can happen so please do not worry. As we are required to quarantine the books for 72 hours before using them again, can we ask that, if you are able to, you bring the book when collecting your child from school today. This will allow us to have the books ready for using next week.

Thanking you

P1P/P1S – Homework & Reminders w/b 14.9.2020

Image result for smiling face

Good afternoon! I  hope you are all having a lovely weekend despite all of the rain we have had. Our homework and reminders for this week can be found below.

Sounds: A PowerPoint has been added to the Jolly Phonics folder which can be found in our Files tab on Teams.  All of the sounds learned to date have been added with a copy of the actions and links to the songs. Please continue to practice all of our sounds at home as much as possible.

SIGHT WORDS: To date we have learned the sight words the, of, and, a, to and in. You should be able to recognise these words on sight and use them in a sentence. For homework we would like you to practice these words. Practicing little and often is the best way for you to learn these words. Ideas of how to do this can be found in the Sight Words folder within the Files tab at the top of our Teams page. Further information on the importance of learning the sight words can also be found in this folder. As we learn a new word in class, we will add it to the flashcard folder.

READING: Our Reading for Enjoyment books will be sent home on Tuesday. If you have a book bag, you may bring it in on this day. The book should then be returned to school on Friday. We ask that you read this with someone at home and discuss the story using our Three Sharings method. Remember we have been using this method in class and Mrs McAvoy and I are very impressed at how confident you are becoming in sharing your thoughts.

  • What did you like about the story? Did you dislike anything about the story?
  • Do you have any connections with anything that happened in the story?
  • Are you puzzled/confused by anything that happened in the story?

SEAL:  Please access the Home Learning Wall A grid that can be found in the SEAL folder in Files on Teams. You should choose one activity to complete this week.

H&WB:  Please continue practicing our targets. You should choose 1 or 2 per week and focus on those before moving on to another one.

A copy of our Target Wheel can be found below.

  1.  Details of our lunch menu can be found here. If you are having a having a school lunch, please remember to discuss the options with someone at home so you are aware of what you are having before coming to school.
  2. Boys and girls, please remember, if you haven’t already done so, to log into your Glow account and say hi on our Teams page. This will let Mrs McAvoy and I know that you have managed to get on ok.
  3. Our outdoor sessions will be on Tuesday-Friday (inclusive).
  4. Mrs McAvoy and I will be out of school on Wednesday for our NCCT. Mrs Kane will be covering P1S and Mrs Hughes will be in for P1P.
  5. Our first Read & Munch session will be on Friday. Further information on this will be issued later this week.
  6. We are still awaiting a few consent forms to be returned. These were sent home early last week in a white envelope. If you haven’t already done so, please return these to school as soon as possible.

Enjoy the remainder of the weekend. See you all tomorrow.

Good afternoon! I hope you are having a restful weekend and are enjoying the sunshine.  Homework and reminders for the coming week can be found below.

Sounds: Last week we learned 3 new sounds: “p”, “i” and “n”. The links for the Jolly Phonics songs relating to these sounds can be found below. Please continue to practice all of our sounds at home as much as possible as this will be highly beneficial to your child.

Jolly Phonics “p”

Jolly Phonics “i”

Jolly Phonics “n”

SIGHT WORDS: To date we have learned the words the, and, of and a. Your child should be able to recognise these words on sight and use them in a sentence. For homework we would like you to practice these words with your child. This can be done by making individual flashcards for each of the words. Further information relating to this task will be discussed at our Parents’ Information Evening on Tuesday.

H&WB:  Please continue practicing our targets. You should choose 1 or 2 per week and focus on those before moving on to another one. We will continue to encourage the children to be responsible for carrying their own belongings to and from school. Well done to all of you who are already doing this.  Please let us know, over the next few weeks, how the children are getting on with their specific targets.

A copy of our Target Wheel can be found below.

  1.  A reminder that a hot meals  option for school lunch will commence on Monday. Details of the menu can be found here. If your child is having a school lunch, we ask that you discuss the options with them each day so they are aware of what they are having before coming to school. We will then order their choice for them.
  2. Our outdoor sessions will be on Tuesday-Friday (inclusive). Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather each day. Wellies can be kept in class, if you wish, however any items of clothing will be returned home each day.
  3.  Our Virtual Parents’ Information Evening will be held on Tuesday. If you have supplied us with an email address, invites for this will be issued over the next couple of days.

Enjoy the remainder of the weekend. We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow for the start of another busy week.

P1P/P1S – Homework and Reminders w/b 31.8.2020

Good afternoon! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and have managed to enjoy some of the sunshine we have had. We have another busy week ahead of us. Please keep reading for a note of our homework and reminders for the coming week.

Sounds: Last week we learned the sounds “s”, “a” and “t” and we will be practicing these each day in class. However, to ensure the children are practicing them as much as possible, we ask that you spend some time at home working on them also. At this time we are unable to send sound cards home, however you may practice using the links below. The children have been introduced to both the actions and the songs (although we are unable to sing them in class). Additional practice at home would be most beneficial.

Jolly Phonics “s”

Jolly Phonics “a”

Jolly Phonics “t”

H&WB:  Please continue practicing our targets this week. You should aim to choose 1 or 2 per week and focus on those before moving on to another one. We will continue to encourage the children to be responsible for carrying their own belongings to and from school. We have been impressed at just how many are doing so already.  Please let us know, over the next few weeks, how the children are getting on with their specific targets.
