This week we have been continuing our work on phonics in Literacy. The P2s have been revising some of the sounds that we already know like ‘th;, ‘sh’, ‘ch’ and ‘wh’. The P1s have already learned ‘a’, ‘t’, ‘s’ and ‘i’. See if you can test your child at home to see if they can tell you anything with these sounds in it from around the house.
This week is Inspirational Maths week throughout West Lothian. The P2/1 class have had great fun completing some problem solving activities and we are hoping that if the weather is kind tomorrow we will manage some outdoor problem solving in the playground.
Last week we went on a walk around the school building and took some pictures of different areas of the school. In Writing we wrote some lovely stories about Mrs Steel and the things we like to learn about in school.
Monday- new common words (P1 and P2) and sound cards (P1 only) come out. Gym kit for indoor gym.
Tuesday- New Reading book. Maths (usually every other week)
Can you please remember to send your child’s homework pack back every day as they love getting their medals to show how good a day they have had.
Thank you for your support
This week we have been learning about Robert the Bruce and the Battle of Bannockburn. We have watched a short film about his life and made notes while we watched. We used these to write a report about Robert the Bruce. Next week we will be finishing off the Topic and recapping what we have learned.
In Maths one group have started work on data handling. They have made bar graphs and this work will be continuing next week. The other group have been working on area and are now moving on to time.
Next Thursday (3rd March) Primary 3 are organising World World Day. Children can come dressed up as a character from their favourite book. We look forward to seeing what you all come up with.
Please remember indoor gym kit on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

This week more than half the stage are away at Benmore so the rest of the boys and girls have been taking part in some work based around our Topic. We have been working on a challenge to make a life sized 13th Century Knight complete with armour and weapons. This has been great fun and we will be displaying these around the classroom for the other boys and girls to see when they return.
We have also been using some of the skills we have learned in ICT to create a leaflet. We are using Publisher to make an information leaflet about weapons that the Knights would have used in their battles. We look forward to sharing these with the Benmore boys and girls too.
We are all excited to hear about the boys and girls adventures next week and hopefully see some pictures of what they have been up to.
