P1/2 week beginning 10.10.16

Primary 1/2 have had another busy week.

In maths we have been working on measure.  Primary 1 have been working on the language of measure including taller, shorter, wide and narrow.  Primary 2 have been working on measuring objects in the classroom using non-standard units.

We have been working on a class story about the Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark.  We have written our own imaginative stories and have painted pictures of him and will be learning some facts about real owls this week.

Primary 1 are continuing to work on initial sounds and are beginning to try blending these sounds together to spell 3 letter words.  Primary 2 are working on words with 4 sounds.  We have been working hard to read and spell words with some tricky sounds in the middle with real success.

We are looking forward to our parents visiting this week to see all the work we have been doing.


Have a lovely week.

Primary 1 w.b. 10.10.16

In language we are continuing to introduce new sounds and blending these together to make short words. This week we will be writing an imaginative story about the Gruffalo as part of our book of the week project. We will be encouraging the children to use descriptive words in their verbal description of their monster.
Today we will be taking the children on an Autumn walk around the playground and field. We will be observing the changes of the seasons and collecting signs of Autumn. Look out for some Autumn art work when you come for parents night.
This week we look forward to seeing you all at parent’s night on either Wednesday or Thursday. You will have the opportunity to view your child’s work and discuss their progress.
Please remember that next week is half term. We hope you have a lovely break.
Thank you for your continued support

P1/2 week beginning

Hello everyone

Primary 1/2 are now settled into school and have made lots of new friends.

Primary 1 have been learning new sounds which have been sent home for homework this week.  Please practise these for a few minutes every night.  Primary 2 have started practising new sounds and key words which will be sent home for extra practice next week.

All homework will be handed out on Monday and will be collected in on Friday.  Please ensure that homework packs are brought to school every day thank you.

This week we have started working on our health topic keeping healthy.  We have talked about keeping clean and took part in a little investigation to show how germs are spread.  We have talked about healthy eating and made pictures of our favourite meals.  We are going to turn our role play area into a cafe while we learn more about healthy eating.

It was lovely to meet some of the parents at meet the teacher last week.  If you could not manage to come your child should have brought home a newsletter for this term.  Please check this for information on homework and gym days.

Have a lovely week.
