Children should return their reading books to school on Thursday of next week.

Please remember that we are outside most days and children should come appropriately dressed for PE.  This includes bringing a bobble to tie back long hair.

As always, please contact us if you have any questions.

P5 Homework wk beg 14.9.20

Good evening, I hope you all had a great weekend.  Homework and news as follows:

The children have been working so hard with their homework and are completing tasks well.   Our hope is that children will continue to use Teams to hand in this homework.  The jotter can be used and handed in on a Friday if the children have limited access to Teams at home.

This week our spelling sound is ve saying v.  As in solve and resolve.  We have 8 words with these sounds and then 4 common words.  These words will be written in their green spelling homework jotter which they will bring home on a Monday.

Our expectation is that the children will complete the following tasks by Friday.

Monday – write/ type the words out twice

Tuesday – Choose 2 words and write a rhyming word for each.  Choose 2 words and write a shoot word for each.

Wednesday – Choose 5 words and write a sentence for each.

Thursday – Revise your words for the spelling quiz on Friday.

These tasks are set up as an assignment on Teams too.  The children can return their work to their class teacher by the Friday of each week through Teams.  They can use their jotter and photograph their work or type their work and attach it on Teams.  As noted earlier, if there is limited access to the internet, the children can return their green jotter for marking on the Friday in class.

This week the children also have Maths place value homework.  They can choose their level of work by picking which chilli challenge they complete.  3 chilli is the the most challenging task.  The children only need to complete one task.  This can be completed and uploaded to teams or handed in on Friday if you have limited access to Teams.

The children all now have a school reading book.  The children should try and read a little each night.

Have a great week and thank you for all of your continued support.

PE clothing and other reminders

Good afternoon everyone

As you will have realised, the weather this week has been a mixed bag!  Our PE days continue to be Monday to Thursday inclusive.  Please ensure that children come suitably dressed for going outside.  Children can come to school in dark leggings or joggies on these days.  Those with long hair should continue to tie it back, particularly when we are in the wind!

Please also ensure that your child brings a full water bottle with them each day.

The children have been managing well with homework on Teams and everyone seems to be logging into Glow without any problems.  Please let me know if there are any issues.

Thank you for your continued support.  All of the children have taken on the Covid procedures within school with no problems and are working hard to stay safe – well done!

 

P5 week beginning 07.09.20

Good evening!
Hopefully everyone has had a nice weekend and is ready and raring to go with another week of learning.

Maths homework this week is again to find numbers in the children’s environment and have a go at rounding them to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000 (if possible).

Spelling this week is ‘se’ for the ‘s’ sound, words will be posted on the blog and on teams once they have been introduced to the children.

Assignments have been posted on Teams where the children can attach their completed work.

All children will have reading books by the end of the week this week.

We will keep you updated with anything else that comes up this week.

Paths Apps

We have been working hard on feelings and emotions following our return to school.  We looked at the following apps which you might find useful

ChatterPix – Take photos and verbalise emotions
Chill Panda – Help to manage worries
Headspace – Meditation for children
Breathe, Think, Do – Breathing techniques for younger children

Let me know if you try them out!

P5 wk beg 24.08.20

Good afternoon, I hope you all had a great weekend.  We had a fantastic week last week in class and we are all getting used to the new routines and rules.

Spelling homework will begin from Monday 24th August.  The children will come home with a spelling homework jotter but our hope is that children will use Teams to hand in this homework.  The jotter can be used and handed in on a Friday if the children have limited access to Teams at home.

This week our spelling sounds are sh, ch and th.  We have 8 words with a mixture of these sounds and then 4 common words. There will be 12 words altogether to focus on each week.  These will be written in their green spelling homework jotter which they will bring home on a Monday.

Our expectation is that the children will complete the following tasks by Friday.

Monday – write/ type the words out twice

Tuesday – Choose 2 words and write a rhyming word for each.  Choose 2 words and write a shoot word for each.

Wednesday – Choose 5 words and write a sentence for each.

Thursday – Revise your words for the spelling quiz on Friday.

These tasks will be set up as an assignment on Teams too.  The children can return their work to their class teacher by the Friday of each week through Teams.  They can use their jotter and photograph their work or type their work and attach it on Teams.  As noted earlier, if there is limited access to the internet, the children can return their green jotter for marking on the Friday in class.

We have started carrying out running records with the children in the hope that we will have reading books home in the near future.  At the moment the children are using the class library for reading time.

Have a great week and thank you for all of your support.

Field shoes

Good afternoon

Just to clarify some confusion, children should now come to school wearing shoes appropriate to wear on the field.  We will not be changing shoes during the school day.  Please also remember to bring in appropriate rainwear as we will be outside in the rain.

Thank you for your understanding.
