your child to write the words in their yellow
Write the words in rainbow writing. Try to find the words in a story.
Common Words: every, find, want, girl.
Use the Look, say, cover, write and check method to learn your words in your yellow jotter. You can write a silly sentence if you want to or look for your Common Words in your reading book/story at home.
Can you write a few sentences about something you did over the long weekend? Remember to use the correct punctuation. I look forward to reading it.
This is my teacher news:
During the long weekend I spent lots of time outdoors enjoying the sunshine. On Friday we took the train into town for afternoon tea. We had a great time at a funfair. On Saturday and Sunday we had delicious BBQs with friends. Yesterday we drove to Largs and took the ferry to ‘The Isle of Cumbrae’. We cycled around Millport. We loved looking at the boats. On the way home we were very sleepy. It was a brilliant weekend.
Numeracy and Maths
Count forwards and backwards in 2s, 5s and 10s. If you want to challenge yourself count in 20s, 50s and 100s. What are the number patterns? Place value is such a crucial part of our learning in Primary 2. We revisited it today and consolidated some of the learning we had already completed in class. We are focusing on breaking down 2 or 3 digit numbers, e.g. 459
400+50+9 = 459
10+7 = 17
Challenge yourself to write a few numbers in your jotter and separate them into tens and ones or hundreds, tens and ones.
Health and Wellbeing
We are trying to be more active during the school day. Our PE days are now Tuesday and Thursday(we have access to the gym hall on these days). Please check your child’s school bag. Some of the indoor shoes are no longer safe to wear as they are coming apart. I have asked children to take them home so you can have a wee look.
Today we learned about the different food groups. Can your child tell you the 5 groups we learned about? Here they are: fruit, vegetables, protein, grains and dairy. Are there any of the food groups your child would like to try to eat more of?
Challenge: Can you find out how much sleep you should get every night (if you are 6 or 7 years old)?
