A huge well done boys and girls, we have completed another week of home learning and everyone is doing really well! Mrs Hughes and I are looking forward to getting your packs in today so we can see how you are getting on. Your last packs were completed to a really high standard and we were super impressed!
This week the Primary 3 children pulled out all the stops and gave me a very difficult job! I found it very hard to decide who should get the certificate, so I have decided to give two certificates.
This week was ‘Children’s Mental Health ‘ week as you know, and everyone’s mental health is very important. It is as important as our physical health! The first certificate is going to Caleb Hughes because he is going to do the ‘Walk 100 miles in February challenge ‘for Mental Health Ireland. I think this is a great thing to do and he has been working very hard on his pack as well. It is important to get a balance of work and exercise. Well done Caleb!
The second certificate is going to Jack Marshall. Jack has been trying very hard this week to do his pack, he has been practising reading the clock, reading his AR books and he got outside to check on the farm animals. Well done Jack!
Good morning boys and girls,
I hope you all had a good weekend and got outside to play lots. Did you do the 'Big Bird Watch'? We love photos, so please keep sending us them, it helps us stay in touch.
I really enjoyed the PE lesson Chris did on Friday afternoon. It was really nice seeing you and having the chance to say hello. If you didn't get to join on zoom, don't worry Chris will be back this Friday at the same time. I will email the zoom link to your mum or dad on Thursday.
This month Primary 2 you will be working on number bonds for 8.
Primary 3 you will be working on number bonds for 16.
Primary 2 you are working on 'og' words this week or the sound 'h'.
Over the last few weeks you have been working on subtraction and I have attached a link to a very good subtraction video below, please watch it. I know you don't have any numicon at home but it will still help.
This week our number work is revision and it has lots of adding words, like 'plus' and 'add together' and 'more than'. Remember when we add, the answer is bigger, when we subtract the answer gets smaller.
Primary 3 you are working on 'ip' words.
Your maths work this week is on time. Revise over o'clock and half past, make the times and draw the hands on the clocks. Remember it is important to have a long hand pointing at the number and the short hand points past the number. You also have some work using a calendar. I have some Study Ladder activities using a calendar as well. I think you will enjoy it!
On Friday between 10am and 11am, we will be collecting in your packs and giving you out a new pack for next week. If this time doesn't suit just let us know and we can arrange an alternative time.
If Mrs Hughes or I can help with anything please send us a wee email.
Have a good week everyone.
From Mrs Hughes and Mrs McKee
This week is 'Children's Mental Health Week' Feb 1-7.
It is time to remember that each one of us is unique and that we all have something to celebrate about ourselves.
This week, Mrs Hughes and I want you to be as positive as you can be and to think about things that make you happy.
Everyday this week we are going to set you a challenge to take a 10-minute timeout from your work. Get others in your family involved too.
We have all had to face tough times and make some difficult choices and I am sure you have had times where you have been sad and are missing somethings you would normally do. No matter how hard things get we all have to realise that we can get though this if we work together and we are doing well.
Keep positive, try to keep smiling and remember that you are amazing!
Today is the start of your week and your mission.
Monday- What is your favourite song that you like to listen to and why do you like it?
Look the song up and play it to yourself. Maybe you could send me a picture or a message telling me your favourite song and how it makes you feel.
Tuesday -Where is the place you like to visit that makes you feel happy?
Maybe you could draw me a picture of your favorite place that you like to go visit and write about why you like it.
Wednesday - Tell me a funny story which makes you laugh and smile when you think about it.Maybe you could send me a 30 sec video telling me of your funny story.
Thursday- You all have so many skills and talents. Today I would like you to write down three things you are good at.
Friday - Today I would like you to make a poster of all the things in your life that makes you happy and help you to smile. Use lots of bright colours!
Both P2 and P3 are learning how to tell time using analogue and digital methods.
P2 should be able to tell o'clock and half past times.
P3 should also be able to tell o'clock, half past and we have just started to learn about quarter past time.
Sometimes recognising and writing these times digitally can be difficult, don't worry this will come with practice.
There are some videos below which hopefully will help.
