What another lovely weekend of sunshine! Hope you have all been making the most of it!
This week we have been challenging some of our pupils with some division and multiplication word problems. Please support them only with the reading of these but encourage them to calculate their answers independently. They can write the sum and the answer next to the question.
Phonics and reading will be taking place as normal.
In writing this week we will be asking the children to research a restaurant in Livingston for an information leaflet. Perhaps chat with them at home about a restaurant you have been to before so they can draw upon their own knowledge too.
In Numeracy we will be looking at strategies to double and half numbers quickly as well as identify halves and quarters of various shapes and numbers. Increase your child’s mental agility by quick firing some numbers at them over dinner this week!
With the weather being so good we will be making the most of it by getting outside so please ensure your child has a water bottle, appropriate footwear, sun cream applied and even a hat. All labelled so we don’t lose any items!
Have a good week!
Mrs Smith & Mr Gordon
