Home Learning W.B 8/6/20

Good morning everyone,

We hope that you had a lovely weekend.

This week our spelling sound is ‘au’ and our words are:

  • fault
  • haunt
  • launch
  • sauce

Next week as part of our Lighthouse Keepers Lunch topic, there will be an activity to make a pully like the one Mr and Mrs Grinling use in the story.  For this activity you will need a string and something to attach to it. The string could be wool, lace, ribbon and the attachment could be a cup, basket or anything of the sort.  We wanted to give you some notice for this to source materials.

Below are some reminders for home learning:

  • Just do whatever you can. We have set some of the work we would usually be doing on those days in school but please don’t feel you need to do it all. We understand that everyone has different circumstances and daily routines. We would be happy if you checked-in with us every day.
  • We sometimes set different levels of tasks .e.g. mild, warm and hot. We always say to complete one of these, however, if you want to keep yourself busy feel free to do more than one.
  • We will continue to have Team Meetings throughout the week.  If you can join us, that would be great. These meetings give everyone a short time to share their news/feelings and hear each other’s voices. I know we really enjoy them and hope you do too.
  • Uploading work: If you are having any problems uploading any work, remember you can always email them to us. Or just let us know on Teams that you have completed the work and we trust that you have!
  • Feedback for your work: We look at your work once it has been submitted/uploaded and give you feedback. Please read the feedback to check for your strengths and next steps.
  • Technical Difficulties: Sometimes documents, powerpoints and weblinks do not work when you try them on your device. Please let us know and we will try to advise you. The sound on some links doesn’t seem to work when it opens in Internet Explorer so another web browser (Chrome) would be better.
  • Chill-Out Zone: Please remember to chat with your friends here. We are loving all of the creative and funny things you are doing in this zone. Please remember not to post personal photos or videos in this area. GIFs and emojis only.

Thank you for your continued support,

Team P2

 

P2 W.B 30th March

Hello everyone,

I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Like last week,  four activities will be posted on teams each day for you to complete.  Please remember that you do not have to complete these for a certain time,  just when you can.  If you are online can you please comment your child’s name on the teams chat. This allows us to take a register and keep track of who has been online.

This week our new spelling rule is ‘or’

Your spelling words this week are:  sort, storm, form, short

For common words we have picked some magic e words with blends: plane, store, slime, prune.

Your child’s teacher has posted about using Zoom on your teams chat. This allows your child to speak to their teacher and classmates. Each class has a scheduled time for their zoom meeting. Please check your child’s team chat to find out their classes time.

As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

Have a great week!

P2 team.

See you all soon!

P2F and P2G had a brilliant day today. We had an early visit from the  Easter bunny who hid treats around our classroom for us. We loved having an Easter hunt! We also had fun outside playing games in the sunshine.

The time we have spent together since starting Primary 2 has been fantastic. We have loved getting to know all of the children, they are truly a lovely bunch.  We will hopefully all be together again soon to make many more memories. In the mean time, we will communicate through glow and I will be online from 9am every weekday. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for all of your continued support so far. Please keep in touch and we will hopefully see you soon!

Many thanks ,

Miss Finnigan and Miss Grant

 

 

 

 

Old packaging needed

As part of our Rainforest topic, we are learning about deforestation and the reasons as to why humans are cutting trees down. We are doing a science experiment on Wednesday and need old food packaging such as chocolate bars, cereal and any other packets. No glass or tins please.

Thanks for your help!

P2F/P2G lost property

Hello,

We have a few items of clothing with no names on them that have been gathered in our classroom. If any of them belong to your child please collect them from us at the end of the day or let your child know and we will put it in their school bag.

Thank you,

Miss Finnigan and Miss Grant

 

Last week of term

Hello everyone,

As it is the last week of term there will be no formal homework. Our spelling rule is magic e with long vowel e and will be completed in class.

A reminder that school nativity performances are this week and we ask that if your child has not already brought in their costume, that they do so tomorrow.

Our P2 Christmas party is on Thursday afternoon. Your child should come to school in their uniform with their party clothes in a bag with their name on it to later change into.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks,

P2 teachers.
