New Year, New Challenges

new-year-3039802_960_720Happy New Year to all families from all of the P3 team – and thank you very much for the kind gifts we received for Christmas. Now that we’ve been back a week, we’re already hard at work.

At this time each year, the whole school has a Scots focus. Please make sure that your child has chosen one of the poems from the selection we sent home and help them to practise performing it to be ready for Monday 29th January.

We would really like to keep going with our Reading Challenge this term. If your child has read a book of any kind at home, please write the title and author into their homework diary so that they can copy it into their challenge journal. Also, please help them to choose a book to bring in to school to keep in their tray for silent reading sessions in class.

As part of our Emergency Services topic, all three classes are visiting the fire station in the next few weeks. P3A are first to go this Thursday morning; P3B go next week on Thursday 25th January; P3C go the week after that on Thursday 1st February. If you can come along to help out, please call the office to let them know.

Before we give you this week’s homework and child-friendly plan, please could we ask you a favour. This blog does not get as many views as we would like, in terms of being able to communicate what we are doing in our P3 classes to parents/carers: it is much more eco-friendly than a weekly newsletter and harder to miss than another email. If you are reading this, please could you encourage other P3 parents/carers to check the blog out too.

So, this week’s homework:

  • Reading – See homework/reading diaries.
  • Spelling – Learn this week’s spelling pattern and complete a spelling activity – and please make sure you have your spelling jotter at school on Friday!
  • Maths – In class this week we are learning how to tell the time using analogue and digital clocks. Please practise this at home focusing on o’clock and half past.
  • Other – Remember to continue learning your Scots poem for Monday 29 January.

And the child-friendly weekly plan:
