Weekly plan – Week beginning 14.09.15

The children are continuing to settle into class and have adapted well to all the new routines and responsibilities!

Well done to Emma in P2 who is our class rep at pupil council.

Please can we ask that all clothing and equipment is clearly named. We already have a small collection of cardigans that noone has claimed!!!

Things are beginning to settle down and our timetable is almost organised.

Music is on a Tuesday with Mr Smith.

Science is on a Wednesday with Mrs Will.

Gym will probably be on a Thursday with Mrs Northcroft although this has still to be confirmed.

On Friday the children will usually have Assembly and Golden time.

Reading – Your child will receive a new reading book on Monday and Wednesday. It would be extremely helpful if you could work with your child for a short time each night.

First night with the book – read the story together, look at the pictures and discuss what’s happening. Have a look at any words in the word pot and see if your child can find them in the text. Ask your child to read the text to you, supporting them when necessary. If they are stuck with a word, encourage them to sound it out, look for clues in the picture and the story.

On the second night see what they can remember about their book from memory. Ask them to read the text to you and then focus on words from the text, or in their pot, that they struggled with.

Common Words – as and at. Homework will be given out on a Monday and should be completed for the Thursday.

Phonics – This week we will be practising the letter n as well as consolidating s, a, t, i, and p. There will be word making homework in the H/S book at the end of the week. This is a job to do when you have time over the next week.  P2 will be reading and writing 3 letter words. This week they will be getting spelling homework.

Number – Primary 1- Number formation of 5 and 6.

Primary 1 and 2 will either be working with numbers to 10, 20 or 100 – counting, recognising, writing, and ordering.
