P3 – Ask a Police Officer

TOP - 1 (14)Today, we had a visit from the police! Don’t worry – everyone has been behaving themselves and nothing has been stolen. Three police officers visited the P3s as part of our Emergency Services topic. We heard about what they wear as part of their uniform, what kind of vehicles they drive and about the animals they work with – they really love working with the police dogs.

Don’t forget that this Wednesday (31st January), P3 are having their Technology showcase. Parents/Carers should come to school for 2.30pm. Each P3 will show their pop-up pals in their classrooms and grown-ups will be asked to help to evaluate the toy. We will also have a Scottish song and our Scots poems. Grown-ups can take their child away as soon as we finish, if that is before 3.25pm. If any parents/carers can’t make it, grandparents, aunties & uncles or family friends are welcome to come instead – as long as we have no more than two grown-ups per child.

On the subject of the Scots poems, please keep practising. We will be hearing the recitations on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

There will be no new spelling words this week. We just ask that you help your child to revise any words from their spelling jotters that they found tricky – especially any that they got wrong in the weekly spelling checks.

Finally, before the homework and child-friendly plan, thank you to everyone who checked the blog last week – our viewing figures compared to previous weeks increased by about 500%! Please keep checking in each week – the blog is where we will share photos of activities, links to homework, reminders and news. If you want to make sure you don’t miss it, you can click on the wee turquoise “follow” button next to the top right of this post and follow the instructions.

Here is this week’s homework:

  • Reading – See reading/homework jotter/diary for this week’s reading.
  • Spelling – This will be a revision week. Please see Spelling Jotter.
  • Maths – This week in Maths we will be practising 2 (and possibly 3) digit numbers together.  To help your child with this, please can you practise number bonds to 10 and 20.  If you wish, “Hit the Button – Number Bonds” is a fun way to do this as well as oral practise. 

And here is the child-friendly plan:
