Welcome back to Term 2!
Please can we ask that all clothing and equipment is clearly named as we begin this new term.
Our timetable is as follows:
Library visits at break time on Mondays in our newly revamped school library (optional for pupils to attend)
Music is on Tuesdays with Mr Smith.
Book Buddies with P5 on Tuesday afternoons.
Science is on Wednesdays with Mrs Will.
Gym will probably be on Thursdays with Mrs Northcroft (although this has still to be confirmed).
On Fridays 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 – the and and. Primary 1 homework will be given out on a Monday and should be completed for the Thursday.
Phonics – This week we will be consolidating c, e, h, r, m and d. 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 and will get spelling homework on Monday and should be completed for Thursday. These words should be practised each night at home, ready for the spelling test on Friday. You can see how well they have done as it is completed in the back of their homework jotter.
Number – Primary 1 and 2 will either be working with numbers to 10 or 20 – counting, recognising, writing, and ordering. We will be focussing on the concept of ‘1 more‘.
