Respect, Learning, Kindness, Friendship, Trust
Welcome to P2a!
In maths we are learning to use money, to add/subtract numbers within 10 and 20 using a wide range of problem-solving strategies and identify shapes.
Children have daily phonics lessons and are encouraged to practise taught sounds at home. We read a wide variety of stories every day and love children to share what they have been reading.
Our topic this term is the hospital. We are learning all about the people that help us.
P.E. days are Tuesday and Wednesday.
During term 1 primary 2 will also be working with our ‘Ready for Sport’ coaches on a Monday morning and should bring their PE shoes. All jewellery should be removed on PE days.
Reading books are sent home every day. Please read with your child and sign their homework diary.
Learning journeys are sent home every Thursday to be signed and returned on Friday. Learning journeys are an opportunity for children to share their learning with you from during the week – we encourage parents to add their own comments to these .

Achievements and celebrations
We celebrate a ‘Star of the Week’ in our class every Monday. We also celebrate ‘Worker of the Week’ and ‘Pupil of the Week’ for children who go above and beyond in school. These children enjoy ‘Hot Chocolate Friday’ with a member of senior management on a Friday afternoon.
During this term we will be developing our Spanish skills. We will be learning about Spanish culture by finding out what it’s like to go to school in Spain. We will be learning some Spanish words including greetings, classroom commands, colours and numbers.
