Primary Five

Dear Parents/Carers of P5

We are delighted with how well our classes have settled into school and it is lovely to see such happy children in our classrooms.

Uniform 

Firstly, could we just remind you to make sure that names are on EVERYTHING belonging to the children.  This makes life so much easier for everyone.  Make sure your child comes in with an outdoor coat and a change of shoes to wear indoors (gym rubbers). For the purposes of social distancing, we would be grateful if you would continue to practise with any tricky zips or laces that continue to be a challenge for them!

Snack 

Morning snack is usually eaten inside the classroom after morning break (10.30am).  As lunchtime is 12.10, a small snack should satisfy the children until then.

Water Bottles 

Please ensure your child comes into school with a water bottle which has been filled.  It would be great if you could supply your child with a second water bottle so they don’t need to refill during the day.

PE

Mr Glass will be teaching P5 on a Tuesday.  At this time, classes will be outdoors as much as possible, so please ensure that your child wears appropriate clothing on that day (e.g. trainers, leggings/joggers, school jumper/sweatshirt).  For safety reasons, hair should be tied back.  If required, the children will also be asked to wear their outdoor coat.

Home Learning 

Each term, children will share their targets with you. We will provide a selection of home learning activities linked to the targets, some of which must be completed.  Reading will be set every week and this must be completed.  Your child can either read to you or another family member, read by themselves or someone can read to them. Spelling words will also be given out each week and your child should practise these in their yellow home learning jotter.

If your child is self-isolating from school, please get in contact with Mrs MacGregor and select activities to complete from the P5 Home Learning Grid .

We are continuing to share work that we are proud of using our Learning Journey jotters. When this jotter comes home, please discuss your child’s learning with them.

We really do appreciate all that you do to help support your child.  If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us via email.
