We had a very busy and full first day back. P5 were working on spelling words with 'ir' and 'ire' while P4 were looking at words with double letters at the end. We managed to do a spelling check up as well and it was helpful to revise some of the spelling rules we have already covered.
In maths we were working on the connection between multiplication and division using number triangles to help. This will be part of number homework this term again. We were also adding doubles and P5 will be moving on to do more addition with hundreds, tens and units.
On Friday we are going to Cornalees in connection with part our science topic on habitats. We will be exploring some of the habitats up there and finding out what organisms live in certain ones. It could well be wet so could you please ensure that your child comes clothed for the weather. It will be trip uniform but if they could bring a waterproof jacket, trousers and wellies if they have any to put on, that would be great. There is a small shop so children can bring no more than £5 if they would like to buy anything.
We discussed the Christmas play today as well and everyone was very excited to hear about it. Each class will be looking at Christmas traditions from a particular country and we will also be incorporating the Nativity. It will be on Thursday 18th and Friday 19th December in Struthers Memorial Church. More details about tickets and times will follow soon.
We even had time to change our seats in the class! What a super day!
