This week we are continuing with our People Who Help Us topic with a focus on Mountain Rescue. We are very lucky to have a visit from a member of the Mountain Rescue Team and the children will be thinking up lots of questions they would like to ask.
Preparations for our P2/3 Nativity are in full swing and you will see the songs have been uploaded to the blog for everyone to practise. Your child may have lines to practise at home and we would be very grateful if you could support them with this.
New homework activities have been issued today. The children shared some super work with the class and some of the effort has been fantastic! Again, we have allocated some new activities on Education City for the children – well done to those who have managed to log on and try out some of these.
P.E days for this week and next- Indoor Tuesday, Outdoor Thursday. From week beginning 2/12 – Indoor PE will be Wednesday with our PE Specialist Mrs Ferguson.
Thank you for your continuing support,
Mrs Oliver, Miss Pringle and Miss Rafferty.
The festivities at Carmondean have officially started with the children enjoying their Christmas dinner last week followed by the Christmas Fair. Although times have been allocated for certain festive activities our timetable is pretty much still in place! Our focus in Maths this week will be an end of topic assessment looking at subtraction and we will also be looking at various patterns in our 2,5 and 10X tables so that they can easily be remembered. Our spelling focus is still the ‘ay’ pattern but words are slightly trickier this week so make sure the children are using ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write and Check’ when writing them out each night. Our big news this week will be Wednesday where you will get to see all of your little stars in the P2/3 Nativity, ‘Lights, Camel, Action!’ Performances will be held at the church at 9:30am and 1:30pm. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
Maths: Timestable focus
Spelling: ‘ay’ words
Reading: As indicated in their diaries
We will also be practising our Christmas dancing for our party which takes place next Tuesday afternoon, 13th December.
Have a good week!
Mrs Smith & Miss Rafferty
