Despite the fact we had a short week last week we were still very busy! We consolidated our number knowledge of division by 5. This can be a tricky concept so lots of practise at home would help.
We have made excellent progress with telling the time and it would be beneficial to refer to the time throughout the day at home. We have learnt o’clock, quarter past and half past on analogue and digital clocks. This week we will be looking at ‘quarter to’ on digital clocks.
Your homework sheet for the week is now live on Seesaw. We are focussing on the Arctic Fox this week and will be learning about them, writing about them and doing a fun art activity!
We are so impressed with how many people are using Seesaw and uploading their homework regularly. Please continue to do this!
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:
We hope that you had a fantastic weekend with your family. What did you get up to? We hope that you managed to spend some time outside. Miss Christy, Miss Daun and Miss Cunningham are all missing you so thank you so much to everyone who has posted on the Learning Journals to show us all your hard work. Every time we see a photo it makes us smile!
This week we are continuing our learning through the learning grid format.
These learning grids will also be sent out through the Learning Journal messages where you can download them onto your computer, tablet or phone. This week we have trialed using a short video to teach new concepts in maths. Please let us know if this is helpful for the children. We are hoping to use this format more in the next few weeks and hope that it eases some of the teaching pressure at home. The video will be sent through a dropbox link in the Learning Journal messages. We will also be sending out a message with your child’s reading homework.
Thank you for all your support in this time. We really appreciate all the hard work you are putting in to maintaining some sort of normal at this time for the children.
Please let us know how we can support you.
The Primary 1 teachers.
We hope that you all had a lovely weekend and managed to spend some time outside, even just in the garden! We hope that you are all keeping healthy, helping out around the house and still finding time to play. The Primary 1 teachers are missing you all very much and we hope that you are still enjoying learning from home. We have been so impressed with all of your hard work, thank you again to all the parents that continue to post on the Learning Journals. It is lovely for us to see you all engaging with the activities we are providing.
Each Monday we will post three home learning grids on the blog and through the Learning Journals. There will be a grid for literacy, numeracy and learning across the curriculum. The grids will provide you with some suggested learning activities to complete throughout the week. We will also be posting some additional challenges on the blog for you and we will share some of the best examples on the school blog! Please don’t worry about completing all of the activities, remember these are just helpful suggestions to support you at home. You may still want to choose activities from the home learning pack at this stage and that is still encouraged! We are aiming to make the tasks set as flexible as possible so that you can fit them in around the other commitments you have.
Please find this week’s home learning grids and all the resources you will need below. If you are unable to print these resources at home then perhaps your child could draw the pictures into their jotter instead. The Easter egg activity (in the maths section) might be a little tricky to draw so maybe you could help them get started by drawing a pattern in half of the egg.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us through the messages section of the Learning Journals or through the school blog. Please continue to share your child’s learning on the Learning Journals, it is great to see how they are getting on at home!
