The school will be closed to pupils this Monday (16th) due to an In-Service Day for staff as we develop Health & Wellbeing and Literacy resources.
Reading – Your child will receive a new reading book on Tuesday and Thursday. It would be extremely helpful if you could work with your child for a short time each morning or 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 – his and her. Primary 1 homework will be given out on Tuesday and should be completed for the Thursday. Please continue to practise reading each word on the common word wall.
Phonics – f and b. Please remember to complete the word making activity in home/school books. Thank you to all parents who have worked with your child to make words. It not only builds spelling skills but also reinforces the individual sounds.
P2 will be reading and writing 3 letter words and will get spelling homework on Tuesday which 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 be continuing with the concept of addition and practising addition sums using objects, pictures and numbers.
