Week 4!  A quick update

This week we have started our ‘Super Savers’ topic. We have been challenged to create a superhero to help save Cults Primary School and the world.

This term, our topic in Primary Two is all about ‘Our Caring World’.  The children will be learning about ways to care for the environment, the conservation of materials and how our needs and wants can affect the environment in which we live.

 

On Monday during assembly Miss Mackay explained that a special delivery had arrived in the school office and it was addressed to Primary Two!  The box contained an envelope for each class.  Inside the envelope we found our first mission!  The children are going to be taking on the role of ‘Super Savers’ who will help to make Cults Primary School a more caring place.   So far this week, we have received three missions.  It has been a very busy week in Primary Two!

Dear Primary 2s,

We have a mission for you, if you wish to accept it.

Can you help us to make Cults Primary School a more caring place?

We need some superheroes to save energy and encourage people to stop wasting materials.

Your first mission:

Transform yourself into a superhero and think about how you could help Cults Primary.

Your superhero should have:

  • A mask
  • A cape
  • A superhero suit
  • A name

Mission two will arrive tomorrow, be prepared to get messy. If you have any superhero masks or capes, please bring them in.

Dear Primary 2s,

Mission Three

Now that you are becoming a superhero, your next mission is to look around your house and bring in 3-5 items which can be recycled on Monday 17th September.

For example: You could bring a newspaper, a milk carton and a cardboard box.

Your next mission will arrive on Monday.

We have teamed up with P6M for paired reading. We had great fun with our buddies. Each week we will be doing a differet paired activity, sometimes reading, sometimes maths and hopefully science.

Open evening

The children are very excited to show you our wall displays and some of the activities they have been doing in P2. Hoping to see you all on Wednesday evening 5-6.30.

Week 3

WOW P2K, we have worked very hard this week. A big well done to everyone who made it to the top of the ladder!

Here is a quick summary of our week.

Writing

Image result for wow words

This week in writing we learned about describing words. We brain stormed lots of describing words then had to describe where Elmer lived and what he looked like. Some of us managed to include lots of WOW words.

 

Maths

Some of us have been learning how to order numbers to 30. We have been learning about the words; before, after, smaller, larger and in between. Help us practise these at home using our 100 square.

Image result for ordering numbers to 30

Others have been learning how to partition numbers using tens and units cubes.

For example 53 = 50 + 3

49 = 40 + 9

137 = 100 + 30 +7

Phonics

We have had great fun playing at our phonic stations this week. Next week will be our last week of revision before moving on.

 

We made some cool glasses to help us remember the oo sound.

Learning Zones

Our learning zones changed this week. Lots of the boys and girls were really enjoying them. The pupils have been using the camera to take photos of their creations/puzzles and activities.

 

 

A big thank you to all the boys and girls who dressed up and donated to CLAN.

Here are some of the things we have been doing.

 

We had great fun at singing with P2M! Ask us which songs we were learning.

 

Phonics

Here are some of us revising our ‘ch’ and ‘sh’ sounds. We had to create the words Miss Keith was saying then pop our hands on our head.

 

Writing 

For writing this week, we continued to look at capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We had to write 3 facts about ourselves.

 

Next week we will be learning about describing words.

 

Learning Zones

We have really enjoyed our learning zones this week. Many of us have made lots of creations and asked Miss Keith to take pictures for the blog. Look at what great fun we have had.

 

 

How great do our self-portraits look?

This week we set terrific targets on leaves. Image result for leave cartoon

We created a literacy and numeracy target. Once we achieve the target, the leaves (targets) will fall off the tree and we will set some more.

 

Doesn’t our tree look fantastic? Image result for thumbs up

Homework

I thought I would put an example of the written homework for this week on the blog.

The pupils were delighted that their parents have homework too! Looking forward to reading the handouts. Image result for smiley face

Golden rules

Image result for golden rules jenny mosley

This week we listened to a story about one of our golden rules – always being kind and helpful. We then did a circle time discussing examples of our class members being kind and helpful. Lots of the children were keen to share that they were kind and helpful at home too – helping brothers and sisters and emptying the dishwasher! Very impressive! We will be looking at another golden rule next week.

We were challenged to write about our summer holidays. We had to impress Miss Keith and show her what we remembered about writing. Some of us remembered that we need finger spaces between words and others remembered that sentences need capital letters and the beginning and full stops at the end.

Phonics

This week we have been revising our letters and remembering which way round some of our initial sounds go. Here are some pictures of us remembering ‘sh.’

Unique

We were learning about the word unique through the story of Elmer. We talked about differences and why it is important to be respectful of differences. We then had a great (and very messy) morning using our fine motor skills cutting, sticking and creating our bright and colourful Elmers. We think that they will create a super wall display.

Homework will start next week - it may include a small task for parents too!

 

This week has been fantastic P2K. I wonder what next week has in store…

As it is the start of term can you please ensure your child has the following in school:
