Category Archives: Homework

All children have been given a ‘pr’ code to sign up to a Family account in Seesaw.  Make sure you are connected to this to see some updates, from the children, about what we are doing in class.  I have also put some information on there about how to set up individual parent and children accounts, so that both can comment.  Let me know how you are getting on with it.


As we have been without internet all day, I have not had a chance to put up this week’s homework.  I have asked children to do their spelling task as usual, and make sure they are up to date with their Book Club reader.

Instead of written maths, can I ask that those children who are involved in the Primary School Quiz Team work on some general knowledge this week.  Those who are not part of the team should try to make at least 3 progressions in Maths Whizz.

The P6/7 class have been invited to watch the Rotary Primary School Quiz on Monday morning.  Please ensure permission slips are returned as soon as possible.

Have a great week.

Written maths should be handed in by Thursday, as usual, but you can take until Monday 22nd January to make the 3 progressions in Maths Whizz.  You will be given a small amount of time during the school day this week, to work on Maths Whizz.

Rehearsals are well underway for Olivia!  Those children who are involved in the earlier scenes should have a copy of these.  Ms Jerrett is still working away on amendments, and we will post up the full script as soon as we have it (hopefully tomorrow, Tuesday).  I do not plan on giving homework next week or the week after, but will instead be asking children to ensure they know their lines, cues, and words and actions for all songs.

In the meantime, this week’s homework is as follows:

Welcome back to Term 2 – how did that happen?

As it is the last week of term, I thought I would give the children a bit of a break from regular homework, and instead ask them to do the following:

Maths – Make 3 progressions in Maths Whizz.  Some children have mentioned they cannot access Maths Whizz.  Maths Whizz is accessed by visiting http://www.mathswhizz.com or by downloading the Maths Whizz app.  Accessing Maths Whizz on an i-pad via Safari will not work as it requires Flash Player.  If using an i-pad, download the (free) app.  If using a pc, visit the website.

Each week I choose a quote for us to work on.  Themes so far have covered hard work, respect, building each other up, and initiative.  Find a quote which you think would work well as our Keep the Quote, and e-mail it to me at diane.macleod@highland.gov.uk.  Use your name in the subject heading so that I can access is easily.  Each week I will pick one person, and their quote will be used.  That person will be responsible for looking out for who is working hard to keep the quote, and will award the quote at the end of week.

It’s been a lovely start to the week, let’s keep it up!

Welcome back to another week.  Here is the homework for this week.
