Welcome to P2a with Mrs Pollock and Mrs McShane
Mrs Pollock teaches P2a on Mondays and Tuesdays, and Mrs McShane teaches on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Our topic in Term 4 is Elderpark. We will be going regular visits to the park to learn and explore.
We continue to read for enjoyment. We are working to engage the pupils in as wide a variety of texts as possible. We are encouraging pupils to bring books and stories from home to share with the class, particularly on Wednesdays, when we will be enjoying a biscuit and some juice while we read and talk about our favourite books. We will continue to visit Elderpark Library each month and parents/carers are welcome on these visits.
In maths, we are learning to add and subtract within 20, recognising numbers to 100, 3D shape and learning to tell the time.
We have recently started learning Gaelic with a Gaelic specialist who visits us once per week.
Thank you for coming along to our recent school concert. We really enjoyed performing our song ‘Pizza Love’!
The children have outdoor learning with our CDO on Thursdays. Please make sure your child comes to school with suitable clothing as pupils will be outside in all weathers.
Our PE days this term are Monday and Tuesday. Please remember to bring gym shoes and take out earrings on these days.
In term 4, our homework is nightly reading and revision of common words (sheets are inside the reading poly pocket). New books will be issued on a Monday and should be brought to school each day. Please remember to sign the reading diary each night. Words will be issued when your child moves on to the next set of words. These should be kept at home. Please note these are reading words, and pupils should not be spelling them. There will be no homework on Friday!
On a Thursday, we will send home the completed learning journey. Please discuss with your child, write a comment, sign the learning journey and return every Friday morning.
