Hello everyone

We hope you had a lovely Christmas and are enjoying the end of the holidays.
Mr Woodward and I have uploded a video to Teams explaining how Remote Learning will operate this month starting on Monday.
This video is available on both class Teams pages if you would like more information on this.

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the end of the holidays.

Miss Clark & Mr Woodward

Primary 1 News

What another fantastic week we have had in Primary 1! In literacy, we have been learning the sounds ‘b’ and ‘u’ and have been thinking of words that begin with these letters. We have been working closely on forming letters correctly, blending new words containing these letters and have been identifying the sounds on the magnetic boards. This week we were writing about our favourite storybook and why we enjoyed it. Thank you to everyone who shared their favourite story with us on See Saw, it was lovely seeing you talking about your favourite books at home.

We have moved on to subtracting within 10 in maths this week. We have been using concrete materials (blocks, 10s frames, counters, fingers and rekenreks) to help us solve subtraction problems. We have had the opportunity to play many fun maths games and have enjoyed working together. If you would like extra practice with this at home, have a look at the subtraction game on Topmarks: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/subtraction/subtraction-to-10

We explored the story of Mr Kringle’s little toy shop during our topic time this week and asked the children to predict what happens next in the story. We also looked at how toys have changed over time and compared baby toys to the toys older children use.

We have been working on counting up to 10 in French and played circle time games to consolidate our learning. We were also challenged to type our full name on the iPads during ICT.

Homework

We are now posting all of your child’s homework on See Saw. We aim to post three different home learning activities each week and this will be uploaded every Monday morning. We hope you have all managed to access this from home but please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you are having any problems.  This week we ask that you complete the segmenting and blending reading activity, the subtraction problems and a French activity to consolidate what we have been learning in class.

It has been lovely seeing all of your work on See Saw and well done to everyone who has posted so far. Thank you for your continued support with this,

Miss Christy and Miss Daun.

P2/1 update Monday 9th November 2020

Hi everyone,

We’re really looking forward to another fun week in P2/1!  Here is an update of what we have planned and also copies of the home learning grids.

Home Learning

The home learning grids for the next two weeks are attached below.

P1 9th November home learning P2 9th November home learning

Primary 1:

Language – our sounds this week are ‘g’ and ‘l’. We’ll be practising writing them and identifying words which begin with the sounds. In reading we will be continuing to learn strategies for reading words we don’t know and also making predictions about texts.

Numeracy – Last week we got on really well with counting two collections and adding them together. This week we will be using number lines to help us with addition.

Primary 2:

Language – our sound this week is ‘ck’ and we’ll be working with our magnetic boards to spell words using this sound.  In our writing we will also try to use some words which use our new sound.

Numeracy – We are continuing to work on our addition strategies and will be adding larger numbers. We will be playing lots of games and activities to help us with our addition.

‘The owl who was afraid of the dark’

We are looking forward to finding out about different types of owls and creating fact files about them this week. Our science will also link with our topic as we will be finding out why we have day and night.

Children in Need

On Friday 13th November we will be having a colourful dress down day and children can pay a donation of £1 to dress in colourful clothing. Children in Need are also holding a duck race. Children can pay 50p to choose one of the ducks which will be taking part in the race on Friday 13th.  This link has more details:  https://www.bbcchildreninneed.co.uk/fundraising/the-annual-duck-race-sweepstake-2020/

Reminders

  • Outside PE will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please wear PE kit to school on these days.
  • Please bring a full water bottle to school every day.
  • Please bring your reading book to school every day.
  • Children in Need Dress Down Day on Friday.

Thanks for your ongoing support. If you have any questions or anything we can help with please get in touch with the office and we’ll get back to you.

Thanks,

Mrs Muir and Mrs Steel.

P2/1 update wc 5.10.20

It’s the start of another exciting week in primary 2 / 1 and of course our last week before the holidays.  The children have worked so hard over the past few weeks we’re sure they will be ready for the break!  We start back at school on Wednesday 21st October.

Homework

Here are the homework grids for this week. New books will be given out on Monday. Please could you return the reading book in its plastic folder to school every day. We will collect in the books every Friday.  It’s really important that we have all the books in by Friday so that we can put them in quarantine before other reading groups use them.

P1 5th Oct

P2 5th Oct

Maths

Last week we had a lot of fun doing measurement in maths – the primary 1s were measuring in the playground using their feet while the primary 2s were using metre sticks to measure themselves and also things in the classroom. This week in maths we will be covering capacity. The primary 1s will be sorting objects according to how much liquid they think they can hold and then will be checking to see if they are right. The primary 2s will be estimating and measuring using litres.

Literacy

Primary 1

Our new sounds this week are ‘r’ and ‘m’.  It would be really helpful if you could help your child think of words beginning with these letters. We have started to practise ‘blending’ some of the sounds we know, for example to read words like ‘cat’ or ‘sip’.  We will continue to do this, adding in our new sounds. In reading, we are continuing to get to know the characters in our Biff, Chip and Kipper books and to use the pictures to help us understand the story.

Primary 2

The sound we are learning about this week is ‘wh’.  In reading we are continuing to build our confidence when reading unfamiliar words by using the sounds we know and clues from the text to help us. In writing we have been using a ‘describing bubble’ to help us add more detail when describing things. The bubble reminds us to use areas such as texture, size, shape, number and colour to make our writing even more interesting.

Science

It’s really turning autumnal now and we’re going to get out and about this week to look at the signs of Autumn using our senses of sight, hearing and touch.

PE/ Outdoor activities

Outdoor PE continues to be on a Tuesday (with Mrs Muir) and a Wednesday (with Mrs Ferguson).  Thank you so much for ensuring your child is dressed in PE kit on those days. We’re also trying to get outside for learning at other times as much as we can which the children are really enjoying.

Thanks for all your support.  Have a great week!

Mrs Muir and Mrs Steel.

 

 

P2/1 update 28.9.20 including homework

We are starting homework this week and on a Monday we will post new activities on the blog. Today you will find links to the homework sheets – one for P1 and one for P2.  Your child will also bring home a reading book on a Monday and should practise at home as often as possible. Please bring the book into school every day. On a Friday we will collect in the books and issue new ones on a Monday. 

P1 28th Sept

P2 28th Sept

number formation

Primary 1 learning

We have been consolidating our knowledge of the letters a,s,i,t,p and n and have been playing lots of games and activities to help us with this. In reading we are continuing to work with wordless books, discussing the pictures to understand the stories. 

In numeracy we have been working with the numbers 1-10 to build our confidence in writing, recognising and making sets of these numbers. This week in maths we are going to be measuring objects using things like cubes or even our feet! We will also be weighing and will be comparing different objects to see which are heavier or lighter.

Primary 2 learning

We’ve been continuing to work on sh,ch,th sounds and will be introducing ‘ng’ this week. It would be great if you could help your child by encouraging them to recognise these sounds in different words. 

In reading we have been using the sounds we know to help us read tricky words. We’ve been thinking about the characters in our stories and how they might be feeling.

 In number we are continuing to work with numbers up to 20 and beyond.  This week we will be measuring using metre sticks and weighing using kilograms which will be lots of fun!

PE and music

PE days are on Tuesday and Wednesday and we are working on ball skills. Children should come to school dressed in their PE kit on those days.  We also have music with Mr Shanks on a Monday which the children are all enjoying.

Thanks for all your support,

Mrs Muir and Mrs Steel.

Primary 2 Home Learning 13.8.20

Hello Everyone,

It was lovely to see you all yesterday and great to have you back. As you’re at home today, we discussed some home learning activities for you to complete.

  • Watch the story of ‘The Colour Monster’
  • Draw yourself using the feeling colours described in the story. If you wish you could choose 2 of the colours/feelings and write about what makes you feel these.
  • Play Helicopter Rescue

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/helicopter-rescue

Practise finding a number in an appropriate range for your child.

  • Complete ‘Things you are looking forward to..’ worksheet using pictures or writing. We will share these in class on Friday morning.

We hope you have a good day and we are looking forward to seeing you on Friday. Remember we have Freetime Friday but please do not bring any toys from home – we will supply these in school.

Thank you for your continuing support,

Mrs Oliver and Miss Rafferty

Primary 1 – Farming SWAY

Good morning Primary 1!

We hope you’ve been enjoying taking part in some of the home learning activities this week. Can you believe that tomorrow is the last day of home learning before the summer holidays? We just wanted to say a huge big well done to all of the children in primary 1 for working so hard at home and sharing all of their excellent work with us. We have been so delighted to see how much you have all achieved and we are very proud of each and every one of you. We also wanted to thank all of the parents for the support you have given us over the last 12 weeks and we appreciate all you have done to support your child’s learning at home.

We would also like to share the SWAY we created for our farming topic this term. We have included lots of pictures and ideas from the children across primary 1 and have showcased lots of their hard work over the last few weeks. This is an excellent way to celebrate all of their achievements and show you their learning journey with this topic. We hope you enjoy! You can find a link to our SWAY below:

Primary 3 25 6 20

Hello Primary 3, we hope you are all feeling great and raring to go for the summer. You have nearly made it and we hope that you are super excited for the end of term!

To mark the end of term, let us know how you are doing with your celebration plans and share with us what you plan to do. Today, how about coming up with a short play list of 5 of your favourite songs that make you smile. You can play these on Friday during your celebration, whilst having your healthy party food you planned out yesterday.

For your final reading task we thought that since there are so many keen readers we could start a Teams book club! We will set up a section on Teams where you can make recommendations to each other, create artwork of your favourite books or characters, you can chat about books you like, ask people about books they like. Hopefully we will have a large list of books that will keep you all going all through the summer!

As another Summer art activity, why not try this dream catcher to catch all of your hope and dreams over the Summer. You could make it from a paper plate, or an old CD.

 

 

 

 

 

Materials:

Paper plate / CD

Wool / string

Beads

Feathers

Bits and bobs for decoration

You could even practice the skills Mrs Fox taught you and try some weaving on it or you could leave it plain. Here’s a tutorial if you decide to try some weaving. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzdpHbRbvZw

If you are looking for more Maths practice, how about trying this code breaker using all 4 operations, addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. The answers are all summer themed words!

Summer Code Breaker

Thank you for all your hard work and support,

Primary 1 24.06.20

Hello everybody,

We hope you are well and are enjoying the last week of school before the summer holidays. Are you having fun with the virtual Disney trip activities on this week’s grids? What is your favourite activity that you have done so far?

Our focus for today’s blog is our Rights Respecting Schools Award. We are exploring Article 30. This article is all about minority or indigenous groups, culture, language and religion. In other words, every child has the right to learn and use the language, customs and religion of their family no matter where they live. Have a little look at the activities below and you could try to complete one of them over the next few days.

  • Can you find out how to say ‘Hello, how are you?’ in 3 different languages.
  • Do you know any traditional dances? Research these safely online with an adult and practise the steps.
  • Find 10 characters from your favourite books. Do they come from a range of cultures or are they all just like you?
  • Culture means traditions that groups follow like food, dances, song and clothes. Draw or write about what is important in your culture. Then think of someone who comes from a different culture and share safely with them what is important about culture for each of you.
  • Watch ‘If the World were a Village of 100 People’ to find out about people around the world.
  • Keep a food and drink diary for the week. What cultures do your food and drink come from? Which are your favourites?

If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch. Thank you for everything you are doing at home. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Miss Cunningham, Miss Daun and Miss Christy

P3 24 6 20

Good morning Primary 3, it’s Wednesday already! This week is flying by and it’ll be Friday before you know it! I hope to see lots of you on our Class Chat today at 10am to hear all your stories and to find out what you are going to get up to over the summer. Miss Smith’s class chat at 10 has a theme this week – Word Wednesday! Tune in to play a word game!

For today’s writing task we are thinking of a creative summer story. If any of you have seen Chitty Chitty Bang Bang you will know that the family take a trip to the beach, fall asleep and when they wake up their real adventure begins. We’d like you to do the same. Write a story about you and some friends or family on a trip to the beach. How would you enjoy yourselves on the beach, what does you beach look like, where is your beach? And then you fall asleep after much enjoyment. When you wake up your adventure begins, and it can literally be anything you like. Something happens when you awaken on the beach. What happens, do you travel anywhere, what problems do you encounter that you have to overcome? Let your imaginations run as wild as you can, be as creative as you can. You have completely free reign after you wake up on the beach, we are so excited to see what wild and wonderful stories you can come up with!

Today’s summer art involves using straws to create a different paint effect!

Create a lovely summer meadow using the following instructions:

Straw Art – Creating Summer Meadows.

Materials – Straw

Paints

Water

Paper

Paintbrush

You may want to begin by putting a ‘wash’ of green on your paper. This will give you the base colour for your meadow, then you can begin to add the flower colours on top. Place a big watery blob of paint at the centre of where you want your flower to start. Use your straw to blow your paint in different directions to create lots of lines coming from the first blob. Use different colours to make the flowers interesting and Summery. Here is a real wild flower meadow to give you some ideas of colours.

 

 

 

 

 

For your ‘End of Term Celebration Challenge,’ why not use your knowledge of healthy eating and plan to prepare a healthy snack for your party goers! Will you have to weigh out ingredients? Do you have enough ingredients? Will you have to use your health and hygiene knowledge? Or remember safety instructions using things around the kitchen? Remember to plan out quantities so that you have enough for everyone. Let us know what delicious food you are planning to prepare for Friday!

Also, to keep your Maths ticking along, here is a summer worksheet, today the focus is money!

Summer Money

Thank you for your continued hard work and support,

Miss Smith and Mr Woodward

Primary 3 23 6 20

Happy Tuesday Primary 3, we hope you have been enjoying the beginning of your week and you had fun starting to think about the summer and what you’d like to get up to over the holidays!

For today’s reading activity we are thinking about where you could read. You have thought about what you could read over the summer but we thought it would be fun to encourage you to think about the where. We also thought it would be fun to mix reading and den building, which we’re sure you’re all masters at! Why not spend today planning a reading den which could be a sanctuary for you to spend time in reading your favourite books? And if you have time and if you are allowed you could actually build it!

If you are still up for planning an end of term celebration that your family can join you in on Friday, today’s challenge task is to create a banner with your celebration title on it! You could do one big long banner, and practise your bubble writing, or even make your banner like little triangle bunting flags! It is up to you – be as creative as you like! Send us some snaps if you manage to make one – we would love to see!

Here are some Summer Maths activities for you. See if you can remember our work on clocks and time! Summer Time

Why not try another little Summer Art activity. It may just be enough to bring the sunshine back, and today it is all about Mr Woodward’s favourite thing… Ice Cream!

Materials: Anything you can find in the house to print with and make interesting patterns from their textures.

Paint

Paintbrush

A4 Paper cut in half into a long thin strip

Begin with a long, thin piece of paper.  Find objects around the house or junk that can be cut into circles and painted on.

Paint onto your cut shapes with different colours. Press them into your paper to print and create your ice cream balls.

Can you find something you can print on to make the ‘criss cross’ of a cone? How about a tangerine net? Or perhaps some polystyrene you can score into? Or thick cardboard?

Can you think of the flavours represented by the colours of ice cream you have used?

Thank you for all your hard work and support,

Miss Smith and Mr Woodward

Primary 1 – Home Learning 22.06.20

Good morning Primary 1

We hope you all had a lovely weekend and spent time relaxing, playing, having fun and spending time with your family. Can you believe it’s the last week of term before the summer holidays? Where has all of the time gone?

We just wanted to say a huge well done to all of the boys and girls in Primary 1 who took part in the sports day activities! We loved to see all of you working hard, having fun and improving your fitness on the learning journals. It was a huge success!

This week we have created some fun activities for you to complete during this last week before the holidays. There are two home learning grids with fun activities for you to do across the curriculum and some resources to help you with this. Please find the IDL grids below:

IDL grid 2 (1)

IDL Week 10

The reading task and Mickey’s snack menu for the maths activity can also be found below:

Primary 3 22 6 20

Good morning Primary 3 and welcome to your last week as Primary 3s! We hope you have all had spectacular weekends and you are ready to make the most of your week before the summer holidays. Please make sure that you are enjoying yourselves and you take advantage of any great weather we have. Remember if we were in school there would be lots of outdoor learning taking place in the sun!

Because it is the last week of school, we have some fun tasks for you to do!

This week, we will have a week-long celebration challenge, where each day you can complete a task, if you want to, so that by Friday, you can host a big end of term, end of P3 celebration.

Your first task for our celebration is to think of a title for your celebration. Alliterative titles are always catchy – see if you can use the same letters at the beginning of your words in your title, eg. P3’s Perfect Party.

A fun Art idea for today is to make your very own Sunburst painting. Let’s see if we can encourage the sun back for the rest of this week using as many colours as you can so it is lovely and bright!

Materials:

Paper

Paints

Paintbrush

Pencil

Draw a small circle in the middle of the paper. From the outside edge of the circle, use a rule to help you draw straight lines to the edge of the paper. Try to ensure your lines are the same distance apart all the way round the circle.

Paint each section in a bright colour. You can use the same colour twice, just ensure the same colour is not used in 2 sections side by side.

You could even use this as a decoration for your end of term celebration on Friday?

For your reading today we would like you to take some time to plan your summer reading. We know we have lots of keen readers and so we would love to see what books you are excited to read in the summer holidays. It would be lovely to see a display of your summer reads and you could even tick them off when you’ve read them!

For the final week, our Rights Respecting Schools Article is about minority culture, language and religion.

Some activities you may wish to do are:

  • Can you find out how to say ‘”Hello, how are you?”’ in 5 different languages. Share with friends and see how many you can get as a group.
  • Culture means traditions that groups follow like food, dances, song and clothes. Draw or write about what is important in your culture. Then think of someone who comes from a different culture and share safely with them what is important about culture for each of you. This could be someone you know or you could pick a country or indigenous group and write to a child of that country or group.
  • Watch ‘If the World were a Village of 100 People’ to find out about people around the world.
  • What does it mean to be from a minority or indigenous group? Find out what the words mean and then think about which minority groups there are in the UK. Why do you think Article 30 is important and how does it link to last week’s work on Article 2?

Here’s a little fun Maths activity using your multiplication facts and division facts. One is both Mild and Spicy – if you choose mild – just complete the sums for the times tables you are comfortable with. This should be; 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x.

Hot Summer Multiplication and Division

Good morning Primary 1


I hope that you have had a great time this week taking part in our Sports Day at home. I can’t wait to find out which house has won! If you haven’t already, please remember to update the online form with your score from each event. Here is a link to the spreadsheet:

What was your favourite activity?

Are there any you want to try again?

Why don’t you create your own sports day activities for your family to try over the weekend? Think about fun sports you can do in your back garden or in your Living room. You might want to see who can balance on 1 leg the longest or see who can hop the fastest around the garden? Remember you will need to keep scores and create a prize for the winner.

You can also log your information on Get Set Tokyo. Well done Primary 1, we met our target last week!!!

https://www.getset.co.uk/travel-tokyo


Alternatively, why don’t you try some of these super exercise videos in your house? It is so important to exercise every day: it keeps our heart healthy, our bones strong and stops us getting sick.

 

Have a lovely day and a fantastic weekend.

Primary 1 – Sharing Learning at Home

Good morning Primary 1,

We wanted to share some fantastic examples of the work we’ve seen on the Learning Journals so far this week. Well done to all of the boys and girls who have already participated in some super Sports Day activities! Check out some of the pictures we have received so far below:

Here are some other super examples of home learning across the curriculum in Primary 1 this week:

              

Thank you for continuing to share your work with us on the Learning Journals!

Good morning Primary 1s!

How are you today? We hope you have managed to do some learning, playing and relaxing this week. We have loved looking at your pictures from your sports days. Well done to you all! Your house teams will be so proud.

Since we have been finding lots of fun things to do at home over the past few months we thought it would be nice to read ‘Winnie and Wilbur Stay at Home’ on the Oxford Owl website. You can read this book with an adult and try to read the words that you can on your own. Once you have read the book you can have a discussion about it with an adult. You can think about all the fun things that you have decided to do at home and see if they are the same as Winnie and Wilbur. I really enjoyed reading this book and I hope you do too.

If you want to do this extra activity you can also let us know what you think of the book by commenting on this blog. We love hearing from you!

Just a quick reminder on how to get access to the book, go to https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk. Then click on ‘My class login’ at the top of the page and enter your teacher’s name and the password: Carmondean1

We hope you all have a fantastic Thursday.

Primary 3 18th June 2020

How did we all like the Great Science Share yesterday? There was lots of amazing things to learn and even more impressive was all of the children from all over the country and the work and questions they have put into exploring Science over the last few months. If you submitted a question or work, or even applied for your badges, let us know about it!

It was lovely, again to speak with so many of you yesterday. We really do look forward to hearing from you and it is the best part of the week!

Remember to continue your Sports Day activities! We will be watching as the points come rolling in for the teams. It is lovely seeing the whole school working on the same thing across all of the classes. Let us know what you think of it all and don’t forget to send in pics. Mrs Ferguson, as well as the staff would love to see you all taking part.

Reading: For today’s reading we would like you to pick 1 book from the books you added to your reading passport. We would then like you try create your own dictionary based off of the interesting, descriptive or difficult words that you find in your story as you read. You can create your own dictionary however you want, you can do it on paper, on a computer, on a tablet, and it’s entirely up to you! Make sure to make it bright and colourful and make sure that you leave space to keep adding to it as you read other books. It should be something to be added to whenever you read books and find words that you would like to add to your dictionary. Try to make sure you get a front cover and a few words added and remember dictionaries are in alphabetical order!

Numeracy/ Maths: Your maths for today is to continue to work on the revision work we have looked at all week. If you have completed all of the revision work so far make sure to look at Education City for any tasks you might not have done as well as completing work from our Learning Grid. There will also be some revision  Number Talks today, please do not worry about doing all these at once, there is no time limit for completing them.

Number Talks:
