Welcome to Primary 2a! We are looking forward to making new friends and taking part in new and exciting learning. We have settled in well and have quickly become accustomed to the new procedures set up within the school.
This term we are using the Active Literacy programme and concentrating on single and joined phonemes, within spelling and writing. We will be learning how to use word building skills, capital letters and full stops in our written work. We will be looking at a range of reading texts, including fiction and non-fiction, with a focus on reading for information. We are working hard to improve our letter formation and our handwriting.
We will be reinforcing numbers to 10, number order, place value and simple addition and subtraction. Within the concept of Time, we will be looking at the days of the week, months of the year o’clock and half past, using analogue and digital clocks.
Health and Wellbeing
This term, we are reinforcing staying safe, cleanliness and hygiene. As part of our Class Charter, we have been discussing class rules and the importance of working hard and being kind to each others. We will be concentrating on healthy eating and how important it is to exercise regularly.
Primary 2a have been enjoying learning about Island life through the stories of Katie Morag. We will be looking at the differences between Island and mainland living. As part of this topic we will be covering Art, Literacy and mapping skills.
