Big Pedal 2020

Good news !  The Big Pedal cycling, scooting and walking challenge is back.  From Wednesday 22nd April to Tuesday 5th May we would like you to bring your bike or scooter to school every day. You will get the chance to bike or scoot with your classmates and your teacher. If you can’t bring a bike or scooter, you can walk and that will count too.  For more information have a look at the Big Pedal website.

This is a national competition to see how many journeys we can make biking, scooting or walking. Please ask an adult to check that your bike or scooter is in good working order. You may bring a lock to use but you must be responsible for the key.

Rules – all cyclists MUST wear a helmet

– no cycling or scooting in the playground ( or the ashy path) unless you are with your teacher (on the way in/out, playtime and lunchtime)

We have taken part in this challenge for the last few years and it is always good fun.  We are usually in the top 10. Let’s try for top 3 this year!

Happy cycling/scooting/walking

Mrs Ferguson

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

Book Hunt: Thank you again for everyone who has been out hiding our books. We hope you have enjoyed it. Thank you also for emailing the photographs. It has been lovely seeing how excited the children are about it all. Hopefully you have still been able to find some books hiding if you are out and about over the weekend.

Glow: The children have been issued with their Glow emails and password. If you haven’t already done so, please help the children to log on and leave us a message. This will allow us to check that everyone can access Glow at home. Further details can be found here.

P1M & P1W Week Beginning 16/03

Good afternoon,

We hope you are enjoying your 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.

Library Books – Please continue to enjoy the book  with your child and use the ‘three sharings’ to discuss the book.  All library books should be returned to school by next Wednesday 18th to allow us to return them.

Sounds – no new sound cards have been added since this week was a revision week. 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 choose one activity to do with your child and date beside this when complete.

Health & Wellbeing – please practice the home target set for March.  More information on this task can be found here.

Reading Passports – we are enjoying reading all the entries to your reading passports. Please continue to complete for any books read at home.

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 – we do not keep spare cups in class.
  • Please check that your child can log in to their Glow account. from home – more details here.
  • We are once again looking for spare loose parts to help with our learning – some ideas are in the following link – loose parts. As previously mentioned loose parts containing pulses, egg cartons and milk crates should not be sent in due to allergies within primary one. Please do not buy any of these items, it is purely if you have them going spare or are able to collect them from friends or family.
  • We also welcome junk for our creative area – small boxes, tubs, lids, plastic containers, old wallpaper/ material off-cuts, and anything else you think we could use to make things.

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

P1P/P1S – Book Hunt Update

Image result for books

It looks like a quite a few of you have been busy hiding our books over the weekend, despite the weather being rubbish at times. I hope you have enjoyed doing so.  Remember to keep this going, we need to read any books we find and then rehide them again. Thank you for your support with this. It is much appreciated.

Here are some photos of  you out and about hiding, and finding, the books. If you have yet to find one, look closely at the photographs.  Can you work out where they are?  We even had  someone’s little sister finding a book this morning and she looks super excited to be involved. If you have still to hide your book, enjoy finding your hiding spots. Happy hunting!

Word Walls: It is very important that the children are practicing their sight words as much as possible as this will build their confidence in reading them independently.

Book Hunt: On Friday we headed out to hide the first of our books for our Book Hunt. A huge thank you to the parents who came with us to help. Folders with books and covering letters were sent home for hiding with the children. Thank you if you have already hidden your book. Please remember photos can be emailed to us (we have already had one set of photos sent) which we will post on the blog to send out clues as to where the books are hidden. The children can also go book hunting themselves for any that their classmates have already hidden. You can also send photos if the children are lucky enough to find any. Happy hiding ….. and finding …….. and reading!

Maths: Please choose one of the dotted activities on the maths sheet. Once completed, please sign and date the sheet beside the chosen task.
