We are going up to Kincorth library on Tuesday morning.

This week our letter sounds are f and b. Letter f homework should be completed for Wednesday and letter b homework should be completed by Friday.

The P1 children will be introduced to two new common words which can be reinforced at home by completing the common word homework for Thursday. Words for this week are go and no. You may need to help your child writing the number after counting the words together. Please write each word 2 times.

P2

P2 common words will be the last 2 words on the spelling list each week. This week our words are you and your.

 

Reading

P1

We will continue with reading on Mondays and Thursdays. The children will hear the story in school so should still do lots of talking about the pictures and tell you what is happening.

This set of books do not have the ORT characters in them. There is lots of repetition in the sentences so the children should be able to remember the words or recognise the words from other pages. Some new words will be added to go with the reading books. See below.

Cats – A, has

Fly Away Home

The Pond – we, can, see

Wheels – are

Colour Bears – make

Playing – in, like

Please bring the pink home/school book, reading book and word pot to school every day in the book bag.

P2

Our reading days are Mondays and Thursdays. The children will get a new book on these days. Please see the grid in the pink home/school book and sign when reading has been done at home.

Maths

P1

The children will continue working on shape this week and looking at symmetrical patterns.

P2

This week we will continue working on shape and symmetry. We will continue with our CLIC sessions – see below.

C – counting within 100

L – say the multiples of 5

I – doubling 1 digit numbers

C – division (sharing 6, 9, 12, 15 between 3)
