I hope you’ve all had a good weekend.  Homework this week is back to our usual – reading book, spelling and maths.

Please remember there is  a holiday on Friday so homework should be completed by Thursday.

Keep up the good standard of spelling homework – use your joins in handwriting, use look, say, cover, write and check for correct spelling and use good openers and connectives to make interesting and varied sentences eg.  instead of I went to swimming – On Saturday I went to swimming and after that I went to see my gran.

Here’s to another good week.  Keep up the good work.


Maths Week

More fun when we shared our maths and munch with our friends in P6M.  Well done to all of you who tried lots of maths homework ideas – as well as lots of cakes we had this very stylish handbag.

Today we created patterns using shape, pattern, colour and symmetry. We tried out patterns using paint the squares. 

We had another great Maths and Munch.  We have decided we’ve enjoyed it so much that we’re going to do it on alternate weeks with Read and Munch.  I will post on the Monday blog which one it is that week.  We enjoyed cakes made by Heather and her mum as part of the maths bingo homework.  Delicious! Thanks for any photos, drawings and maths written homework.  We appreciate all your efforts to show your children what an important part maths plays in everyday life.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow at our Open Afternoon.

Maths Week

Good afternoon. I am posting this blog earlier than usual to remind you about the sumdog competition.  Please play as often as you can between now and 16th September.  We will play in class too.

Homework this week is all about Maths. Try to do as many of the tasks on the maths bingo sheet as you can.

Maths sheet –  

How Did My Family Use Numeracy and Maths Last Night?

  • The purpose of this task is to become aware of how we use numeracy or mathematics in our daily lives.
  • Please discuss with your child the different ways in which the family use maths skills e.g. telling the time to go to bed or measuring ingredients for a meal etc.
  • Pupils are asked to record some of the ways they or their family used maths e.g. write, draw or make representations.
  • The variety of ways of using maths will be discussed in class throughout the week.
  • Please tweet any photos to:
  • @BishoptonPS  @AttainRen     #MWSREN       @PMCmathematics                Be Creative! Maths is Fun!
  • As posted already we will be doing Maths and munch this week so please bring games which involve counting, matching, shapes, money – anything that we can use our maths for. I’m sure we’ll have a great week. We look forward to seeing parents (one per family please) on Thursday afternoon from 2.00 – 3.00.
  • You could also play our rounding rockets game if you have time.

Maths and Munch

@BishoptonPS  @AttainRen     #MWSREN       @PMCmathematics 

Hi, as you know next week is Maths Week Scotland.  We will be taking part in lots of activities and completing many maths themed lessons throughout the week.

We have decided to Maths and Munch as part of Maths Week.  We will be getting together with other classes in the school throughout the week to enjoy some relaxed maths games.  If you have any of the following games at home or any others that you think may be suitable then please bring them in to school for Monday.  Some ideas include – playing cards, Uno, Snakes and Ladders, dice games, Twister, Battleships, Connect Four or any matching numbers games.  Remember to bring a healthy snack too if you wish.

We also hope you can come to our maths themed open afternoon on Thursday afternoon at 2.00pm.

We are excited about Maths Week and will keep you up to date with our activities each day.

Good afternoon everyone.  This week’s homework is – spelling, maths and reading book.  Again all tasks will be given out on Monday to be completed by Friday.  Last week’s homework was completed to a good standard. Well done.

We will work on handwriting and I will keep reminding you in class about joining your letters.

This week we will take our Flat Stanley’s home and send him on his adventures – to a friend/family member here or abroad or to someone famous. Your help with envelopes and postage would be much appreciated. To find out more about the Flat Stanley project

We have enjoyed playing this calendar game in class – calendar game

Remember to ask for help with homework if you need it. Homework should not be difficult, it is your chance to let folk at home see what you have been learning in school. Have a good week.

European Day of Languages

Bonjour                Guten Tag            Hola               Halla                Hej

Our school will be celebrating European Day of Languages on Wednesday 26th September.  Our theme this year is celebrating how useful it is to know a second (or third) language.  We would like to invite any parents/grandparents who speak another language to come and speak to a group (not the whole school) of children to let them see how knowing more than one language has been useful to you.  If your first language is not English, it would be great if you could teach us a few words in that language eg. hello, numbers to 10 or how are you. If you are able to help, please leave a message at the school office for Mrs Ferguson P3F.
