P7 - Extending our Learning
Term 4 update:
During one of our regular class 'stars and wishes' sessions, where pupils share their ideas, highlights and what they would like to be different, an over-whelming number of the class seem desperate to have more 'murder mystery' home learning, to replace the changes in spelling for the meantime (see below).
There will be four murder mystery challenges, which will lead up to a finale during the end of June.
Murder Mystery Rules
- ask for help if needed
- parents can feel free to help, and hopefully get carried away and have some fun too (try not to complete it for your child(ren) though - we want them to be doing the thinking!
- tasks issued should be kept together in the pocket provided - all resources issued will be required for the finale AND FOR THE PRIZES
- hints will be published here - so keep an eye out

Please go to this link and follow the instructions with your child.
Please practise 'Learn It' facts daily, ideally, in as many situations as you can. Cooking dinner, boiling the kettle, in the car, on the bus... The daily consolidation that takes place is crucial. This, as well as reading has been issued for home learning for some time. To try and foster more of this daily practice, I will pass on a copy of your child's latest 'Beat That' (a weekly test that we all do) during parent contact. Please see below for 'Learn It' Steps. Your child will know which is their current target.
Please help and support your child to practise their spelling words. The lists will be published here weekly, and will consist of words learned during the previous week(s). Jotters have been provided for pupils for whom typing and emailing home learning is not currently possible. If your child has opted to email their learning, please know that no 'hard' copies of learning will travel between home and school. As such, it may seem like they don't have home learning. Please check our web pages regularly.
Pupils are to 'Look, Cover, Say, Write and Check' each word three times. If more than one of the three attempts are wrong, please repeat. Writing must be using linked script and with personal handwriting targets in mind (your child knows what this is), or alternatively typed.
Please encourage your child to complete one of the fun activities available at this link.
If they choose to type their home learning, they should print and stick this into their jotter, or better yet, email it to LethamPS_Homework@pkc.gov.uk . If you choose this method, please type 'P7 Home Learning' into the subject box.
Topic and ICT (Optional)
Via a private, class blog to which your child has been given log in details, your child can post, read and discuss set topics relating to their Class Topic, whilst extending their ICT skills. Please encourage your child to keep their log in details private, and post responsibily. They can access the blog via this link.
