Primary 1 11.5.20

Good morning boys and girls and welcome to a new week!
We hope that you all had a nice weekend and managed to spend some time with your family having fun. What was the favourite thing that you did? All 3 teachers had a busy weekend in their kitchens! Miss Daun tried a new recipe from her cook book, and both Miss Cunningham and Miss Christy made cookies!

This week we will be revising a sound we have looked at before… ck. It is always helpful to go back to sounds we have learned previously to make sure we fully understand them. As in previous weeks, your reading book and associated activities will be sent in a separate email. Here are the literacy activities for this week:

Literacy Week 6

Blending using ck

Roll and read

Writing – story template

In maths, we are continuing our work on time. This week we will begin to tell half past times. You might want to get out your home made clock again to help you practise? Here are the maths activities:

We have given a list of activities from a variety of areas of the curriculum this week including drama, RME and PE. Here is the learning grid:

IDL Week 6

Please try to complete as many of these activities as possible throughout the week, but don’t worry if you can’t get them all done!
We hope that you are all keeping well

Primary 2 – Home Learning 6.5.20

Bonjour Primary 2!
We hope you have had a lovely, long weekend and have been able to get out and enjoy some sunshine. Attached below is a new grid for learning Literacy, Numeracy and Across the Curriculum for the next 2 weeks. However, we know that this is only a short week because of the holiday so you will not complete as many tasks. We are delighted to see some of you uploading photos to your Learner’s Journal to share your learning – thank you and keep up the good work! Please also remember to take time for play, rest, fun and family activities. The learning grids are a guide and can be adapted to suit your child’s needs and your individual family circumstances.
For Woody, Pumba, Buzz and Simba groups – you will be looking at play scripts this week. Here is the short playscript mentioned on the learning grid for you to read and maybe even act out with members of your family!
You may also enjoy watching a pantomime to see a play in action. What are the characters in it? What is the setting and can you come up with some of the stage directions that may be used?
Also, on the Learning Across the Curriculum grid there is an experiment to try. Here are the details:
If you are in need of a brain break at any point – here are some of your favourites from school. I am sure they will make someone in your family giggle!
Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions either through this blog or by sending a message through Learner’s Journals.
Thank you for continuing support,
Mrs Oliver and Miss Rafferty
