Read Write Inc: Video tutorials for parents and carers

Here are some links to video tutorials about Read Write Inc. Parents and carers have found these helpful to remind them about ‘speed sounds’ and ‘special friend letters’.

 

In this parent tutorial, we show you how to teach children sounds that are made up of two letters:

This tutorial explains what red and green words are, and how you can help your child practise them:

In this video, they show you how to read the story itself:

You can be a scientist!

The University of Stirling is 50 years old this year and as part of the celebration they are holding a Community Doors Open Day on Saturday 18th March. The details can be found at

https://www.stir.ac.uk/anniversary/events/2017/communityopendoorsday/

There are a wide range of activities, and there will be a Science Fair. This will be full of hands on activities from a magic mirror to microscopes and from facial recognition to invasive plants. It is aimed at primary school pupils and their families. There is no booking, just turn up on the day and get stuck in. It runs from 2pm-4pm in the Atrium just up the stairs from the MacRobert entrance.

So why not go along and be a young scientist!

P3D skills development in PE

Primary 3D have been developing their team and gross motor skills as part of their activities with our PE teacher, Mr Paterson. They learned about invasion games; passing a ball, aiming for targets and working together.

They have used the skills they learned during their football skills course with Stirling Albion coaches every Thursday.

Well done P3D!

Homework P2C 30th May

I thought that rather than send a homework sheet home I would keep it simple this week and from now on.

Tuesday: practise green and red words in their reading books (see video for guidance: Click here)

Wednesday: practise some speed sounds and then talking about the book, the pictures, what the story is about etc Click here for video.

Thursday: Read the story with your child (don’t feel you have to read the whole book with them, they could read to themselves and you could just hear 2 or 3 pages) then do the Speed Words at the back. Click here for video help.

P2C homework w/c 29th March

Homework sheets and maths sheets have been handed out for this week.

homework sheet 29th mar

Last week a few people forgot to take their maths sheet so I’ve just included it too.

I think some children didn’t pick up their red/green words so I’ve attached them to the homework sheet along with the maths.

It would be a big help if you commented below too so we can get an idea of how many people view the homework online. Thanks!
