Good evening, I hope you all had a great weekend. Homework and news as follows:
Spelling – This week our sounds are a mix of silent letters. All homework should be completed as outlined in the homework jotter. The children should be trying to include some interesting openers and connectives in their sentences.
Maths – This week we will be looking at fractions of a number. – ie. finding a 1/4 of 24. The children should know the link with division and their timestables. They should divide the 24 by the denominator – 4. The answer will be 6.
Reading – The books are due in on Tuesday 21st January. As noted last week, as the books are getting longer and more complex, the children are allowed these over 2 weeks if required.
Poem – The Scottish poems will be heard on Friday 24th January in class. Children should ensure they talk at an appropriate pace, nice and clear and pronounce all Scottish words as best as they can. I look forward to hearing them all. They should try and recite the poems without the paper, however they can have the poem in front of them if required as a prompt. Any children who would like to go forward for our school poetry competition will then be sent to other classes to recite their poem. A class winner will be chosen to represent P5R at our Scottish assembly at the beginning of February.
We had a wonderful time at the German launch on Thursday at Park Mains. The children worked hard and their behaviour was wonderful. Well done! We were very proud.
This week our ballet workshops begin. Those attending will take part on Monday and Thursday at Erskine Care home. Please ensure they have full School P.E kit and that hair is tied back if required. No earrings should be worn.
As part of our science lessons looking at separating materials, the children will be making lava lamps in class. As such we would like the children to bring in an empty small plastic bottle for this lesson. This is needed for next Thursday (30th January) .
Have a fantastic week and thank you for all of your continued support.
