Week Beginning 16th November

Hello everyone,

We hope you had an enjoyable weekend. 🙂

It is National Book Trust week. Keep an eye out on your child’s class teams page for any extra information about what may be happening in your child’s class.

A plea for pine cones. If you and your children are out and about, going on walks or trips to the park, could you collect some pine cones. We need a good-sized pine cone for each child in Primary 2. This will be for an arts and craft activity near Christmas.

This week the new spelling rule is “ck”.  The spelling homework words are listed below:
Please copy the words below three times.

1. lick
2. suck
3. struck
4. cluck
5. than
6. first
7. long
8. down

Can you try to create a sentence which should include at least one of spelling rule words. Here is an example.

The hen can cluck. 

If you would like to challenge yourself, why not think of some other words which follow the spelling rule or try to grow your words and think of root or shoot words. For example

Spelling rule words

Roots and Shoots
cluck – clucking
lick – licks

The maths homework grid should be attached to the assignment. The chilli challenge questions should also be attached. Please remember to only complete one activity a week. The activities chosen should be different each week. This is to give the children some variety.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with your child’s teacher 🙂
