Weekly Plan – week beginning 2.11.15


Gym will be on a Thursday this term. It would be helpful if girls wore trousers that day or at least not a pinafore!

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 – are and me.  Primary 1 homework will be given out on a Monday and should be completed for the Thursday.

Phonics – g and 0.

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 ordering numbers and the concept of more/less.
