Everyone has had a great week on Study ladder and I can see that you have all been working hard. That is difficult when the weather is so nice so well done everyone for keeping up with the home learning. I hope you have been able to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather we have had this week. Well done to the following pupils who achieved their latest certificates this week on study ladder.

Thanks for all your lovely pictures that you sent in this week. I love to see them pop up in my inbox and it makes me smile everytime I see those faces smiling back. It reminds me that even though I miss all of you, that you are safe and well with your families at home. Have a lovey weekend in the sunshine everyone and I'll see you on Monday.
Tuesday 26th May
Hi to all our Busy Bees and Primary 1's. Welcome to week 8 of home learning. I hope you had a good rest for the bank holiday and are ready for what is our last weeks of this school year. It's been a funny old year hasn't it!! Everyone is doing so well with home learning, we are all really proud of how you have adapted and how hard you all have worked over the past 8 weeks. Here are a few ideas of what you could be doing this week.
This week you will see that we have moved on to a new sound, sh. This is the first sound that we have looked at with two letters. We remember this sound by making the shhh sound, the same sound as when we put our finger to our lips to tell someone to be quiet. Have a look at the 'Geraldine the Giraffe' video to help you with this sound.
Practise this at home and look out for this sound in any books that you are looking at this week or on any signs or writing around your house.
Have you had a go at writing some sentences over the past few weeks? Maybe you could try writing a sentence about a bear. You could draw a picture of a bear and write a sentence about something that you have found out about the bear. This is known as report writing. In a bear report you might write about where the bear lives, what it looks like, what it eats and anything else that you find interesting about the bear. We usually look at polar bears, grizzly bears and pandas. These are really interesting bears. you could find out some information about them on the internet or in some books that you might have at home about bears.
Also this week have a go at learning some doubles. I always get children to use their fingers to show doubles to 5+5. Put up 1 finger on one hand and 1 finger on another hand, how many now? Double 1 is 2. You can do this for doubles to 5+5. These are really good to learn for our mental maths so that we can recall them quickly when we need them. I have added a video below with a rap to help the children to learn their doubles, so get the caps on back to front and have a go at this rap. Doubles Doubles, I can add doubes, it's no trouble for me to add doubles
Have a great week everyone.
