Christmas show

In class we have been very busy getting ready for our Christmas show. ⭐ The children have been learning all their songs, dances and our Christmas poem. 🎄Last week, we sent the children their lines for the poem to their emails. You can access this using your child’s glow login and then open the ‘Mail’ tab on the Launch Pad. It would be much appreciated if the children could also practise these lines at home too. We are all very excited to showcase our efforts. 😉 Thank you for your continued help and support. 🌼

National Book Trust Week

Hello everyone!
We hope you had a good weekend. In class this week we plan on doing lots of fun activities around books.
Monday – we plan on picking our favourite character from our class novel, Charlie and the chocolate factory.
Tuesday – hot seat, the children will discuss their favourite books and try to sell it to the children in the class.
Wednesday – we will listen to a story online and carry out some comprehension questions orally.
Thursday – Read and Munch. Due to the current restrictions, we can not have books from home. There are plenty of books in our class library, which after use will be quarantined for the children. The children can bring in a healthy snack from home.
If you would like to join in with book week there are some fantastic ideas on the national book trust website or check out the information on your local library’s website

Week Beginning 16th November

Hello everyone,

We hope you had an enjoyable weekend. 🙂

News
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.

Help
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.

Homework
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
“ck”
clock
knock

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 🙂
