Hello and welcome to the P2W class blog. I hope you all had a lovely summer holiday! I am delighted to say that the children have all settled into Primary Two very well!
Our topic during the first two weeks of term has been ‘All About Me’. It has been lovely to get to know the children better and to find out about their interests, families, likes and dislikes. We have also been comparing similarities and differences and talking about being ‘unique’.
We have been revisiting our ‘Golden Rules’ and talking about why they are important. The children can earn special golden rules certificates for following the golden rules. Please continue to support your child to follow the golden rules by talking about them at home.
We have been revisiting the ‘sh’ and the ‘ch’ sounds and consolidating our understanding of the sounds learned in Primary one. The children have been practising using these sounds to support their reading and writing. We have also been writing facts about ourselves.
We have been exploring our understanding of number bonds to support us with addition and subtraction. We have also been using number lines and hundred squares to help us with counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and sequencing of numbers.
Here is the P2W timetable for this year:
Monday – Assembly, reading, homework to be handed in
Tuesday – ICT
Wednesday – PE with Miss Macrae, homework issued
Thursday – Health with Mrs Cox, reading, library
Friday – PE with Miss Macrae, golden time, show and tell
Please ensure that your child brings these things with them to school every day (some things can be left at school):
-a named water bottle
-reading folder – reading books and reading record
-wet weather activity book
You will find a letter explaining P2 homework in your child’s folder this week. Homework in P2 should take no longer than 15 minutes per day, so please don’t feel that you have to do all of the activities in one go! The activities can be revisited regularly to help the children to consolidate their understanding. I hope that you find the homework information and resources helpful. Please see me if you have any questions about homework.
Please feel free to comment on the blog this year. If you have any questions or comments, please come to see me at the end of the day. I look forward to working with you all this year!
