It has been a busy week in P5, with Home Learning Monday and Tuesday and then on our return on Wednesday we had our next joint outdoor activity with Preston Street P5. It was a great morning and the sun shone in the Park for us. The classes took part in Orienteering activities and Team Games working co-operatively and making new friends.
I have attached the Term 1 overview to allow you to see what is taking place in P5’s learning in the term ahead. I have also attached a copy of Parent and Carers leaflet and the Home Activity Leaflet for Unit 4 of our Health and Wellbeing. This session Unit 4 covers Challenging Our Mindset through classroom discussion and activities. We hope that you will be able to talk your children about a Growth Mindset and what it means to them.
Please find below P5 Term Ahead, Unit 4 Challenge Your Mindset Parent and Carers letter and Home Activity Letter.
Please find attached the Home Learning grid for Monday 12th September and Tuesday 13th September for P5. We have sent home a jotter and pencil to allow the class to do the home learning challenges that are attached. It is a great way for us to share what they have been able to do at home when they return to school.
Here is the Home Learning grid, have a go and see what you can do…
Welcome Back to school P5 and thank you to both my class and the parents and carers I have spoken to for making me feel so welcome in Royal Mile Primary School. I look forward to meeting more families on Thursday 1st September from 2.30pm at our Meet the Teacher.
I have enjoyed the first full week with P5 and it has been a busy week. We have already produced and agreed our Class Charter with our key class Rights and developed our class responsibilities to safe guard our Rights. The class have been helping me to find my way around the school and discover all the great learning opportunities that we will be able to undertake over the year.
On Wednesday 31st August we will be going to Holyrood Park to work and make links with P5 from Preston Street School and the Park Rangers. This will be the beginning of many outdoor session and links with our neighboring schools. On Wednesday we will be den building and orienteering, working in groups and in partnership with the new friends we will make there. Can I remind you to return the KICK forms to school and any medication that your child requires to have in school and for the trips. I hope to post pictures of our trip to the park at the end of the week. Please ensure that your child brings appropriate clothing and footwear for the outdoor trip. We will have a snack at the Park and be back to school for lunch.
Some class reminders: PE will be on Wednesday and Thursday with Mr Madine and PE kits can be kept in school. They will be sent home at the end of each term to allow them to be cleaned. It would also be useful if your child could bring a named water bottle as the weather is still warm and if a pair of named indoor shoes can be provided as well. Homework will not start until week beginning 19th September but P5 have already started their topic about the Water Cycle and it would be great if you could talk to them about this.
Once again thank you for making my first week a very welcoming experience and I look forward to see you on Thursday 1st September.
