Class Information

Hello Primary 2/1,

I would love to hear and see what you and your families have been up to via email. I am missing you all and hope you are all continuing to stay safe and well. If you need any more learning activities, just have a question or want a chat please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Thanks, Miss Alexander 🙂

My email is: gw10alexandercarolin@glow.sch.uk

 

On Wednesday 13th May, Primary 2 will be moving to Microsoft Teams. I will be putting learning tasks, challenges and activities on our P2/1 Teams page.

 The link below explains how to access the page. It explains how to find the tasks and send photographs of yourself and your work back to me for a comment.
When you receive your username, log on and say hello (it was sent out on the school app)  It may take us all a while (including me) to get used to working this way so please don’t worry!
 Primary 1 task ideas will continue to be added on our class page here for the time being and I can still be contacted via email. Teams will go live for Primary 1 on Wednesday 20th May.

How Can You Help Your Child at Home?

Read with  your child each day using their reading strategies bookmark, knowledge of phonics and tricky words to support. At the start get make a prediction about what they think might happen in the story. At the end get them to summarise some key events from the book. You can also play a game of word finder. You tell them a word from the book and they have to see how fast they can find it!

The children are also able to discuss the ‘3 Sharings’. These are:

Likes and dislikes about the story, puzzles (things or events they don’t understand) and connections to their own experiences or feelings.

Write stories or news. Write recipe books, shopping lists or lists of jobs you can help with around the house or garden. Write a letter or make cards to give to your family or post to people you can’t see just now. Try your best to sound out the words and get help with the tricky ones.

Continue to reinforce correct  letter (lower and uppercase) and number formation.

Continue to count daily up to 100 and down again. Count in 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s for an extra challenge!

All children were learning how to tell the time on an analogue and digital clock. Primary 1 were focusing on o’clock and Primary 2 o’clock and half past.

Primary 1

Revise all single and double sounds taught this year. Use your cards to make up 3, 4 and 5 letter words. Jolly Phonics songs can be found on YouTube. Continue to learn your tricky words as well.

Revise adding and subtracting up to 10 or 20 if you want an extra challenge. Learn all the different number stories within 10 off by heart. Remember the Spiderman Switch!

Primary 2

Revise all spelling sounds taught this year. Especially all those tricky Magic e words. They can be found in your yellow spelling jotter.

Revise adding and subtracting up to 50. Recap your 2,5 and 10 times tables. Try to beat your time on Big Maths Beat That.

Remember children learn a lot of skills through their daily play:
