Homework information

Dear Mums, Dads and Carers,

As this is the last term before the holidays and of Primary 1, I will be sending home a little bit  more homework.  This is to prepare us for Primary 2 and the extra work we might be asked to do there.

*Starting from Monday I will be sending a homework activity in our folders.  It will alternate every week between a Literacy task and a Maths / Numeracy task.

Homework should be returned by Thursday.

It is optional but the tasks sent home are there to help revise learning that we are doing in class. It is a good habit to start too. Repetition and practise are key components to learning.

*New reading books will still be given out on a Tuesday.

A general overview of our reading in class is:

Tuesday = 1st ½ of the book

Wednesday = 2nd ½ of the book

Thursday = Questions to develop comprehension


If you have any questions please ask. Thank you for your continued support,

Mr. Madine

Art Gallery opening

Hello everyone!

This is just to remind you that our School Art Gallery will be opening this Friday at 1100.  It will last for approximately 45 minutes until 1145.  It would be lovely if you could attend and see the pieces of art that have been created by the pupils in the school.  In case that wasn’t enough… there’s also coffee AND cake!

“Letter Formation” workbook & Homework

Hello all.

Sent home today was a “Letter Formation” workbook.  We have all practised writing our letters in class and this booklet is to work on our skills.

This workbook is homework but I would urge against completing it all in one go.  It is intended for a longer process.  I will try to update this page to let you know of what pages should be completed each week.  A main intention of this workbook is to get the pupils into a routine of completing homework on a regular basis.

I will send out / set new pages each Monday.  If possible I would like the booklets to be returned each Friday so that I can check for progressions.

Pages for this week = Title page & c-o-p

As with any handwriting speed is not important.  A correct pencil grip will help with control and letter formation.

If there are any questions please ask.

Thank you,

Mr Madine
