P2B

Welcome to P2b with Mrs Campbell and Mrs Clark

Mrs Clark teaches P2b on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday mornings, and Mrs Campbell teaches on Wednesday afternoons, Thursdays and Fridays.

Summary of Learning

Our topic in Term 2 is toys. We will be investigating how toys work and looking at toys throughout the ages.

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 also 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.

Nativity rehearsals are in full swing, look out for information on days and times over the next few weeks.

 

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.

PE Days

Our PE days this term are Monday and Tuesday. Please remember to bring gym shoes and take out earrings on these days.

 

Homework Days

In term 2, our homework is nightly reading and revision of common words (sheets are inside the reading poly pocket). New books and words will be issued on a Monday and should be brought to school each day. Please remember to get your reading diary signed each night. 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.
