Home learning w.b. 01/06/20

Hello Primary 2,

We hope you all had a lovely weekend 🙂

Here are a few wee reminders to help settle your minds as we come back from the holiday.

  • 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.

 

The spelling sound this week is “ur”

Your words are

  • burn
  • hurt
  • turn
  • curl

We have now completed all the common words we need for Primary 2 and we have also revised some particularly tricky ones. Over the next few weeks we would like you to choose 4 that you find tricky and want to practise on your own.

Finally, keep trying your best and we will continue to be happy teachers.

P2 Spelling Words W.B. 27/04/20

Hello everyone,

We hope you all 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 ‘oy’.

Your spelling words this week are:

  • joy, annoy, destroy, loyal

For common words we have picked some th words:

  • there, their, these, those.

Your child’s teacher will post about our weekly Teams chat, scheduled for each Monday afternoon and Friday afternoon.  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.

P2 Homework w.b. 23/03/20

Hello everyone,

We hope you had a lovely weekend.

We know that as we move into the next couple of weeks and the new term, that things will be slightly different. However P2 teachers will endeavour to keep things as normal and consistent for the children as possible.

Glow teams reminders:

  • Please check daily for your child’s work under the ‘assignments’ tab. Not all assignments will require you to post something, but we would love some photographs or examples of work if possible.
  • You child has access to their very own ‘Class notebook’ on glow teams, which is essentially like their very own little jotter. They have been split into different subject areas (literacy, numeracy, health & wellbeing, IDL and homework)  to help them to organise their work. This is available for children to evidence what they have been doing, making etc
  • As much as we can no longer provide your child with a physical reading book at the moment, we do please ask that we continue to read with your child each day.

Primary 2 homework w.b. 13/01/20

Hello everyone, We hope you all had a restful weekend.

Please see homework and weekly notes below.

Primary 2 notes:

  • This term we have a new math homework grid. Please check inside your child’s maths homework jotter for all new activities. A reminder that only 1 activity is to be completed per week and please support or challenge your child as you see fit.
  • Scottish poems – our Scottish assembly is coming up soon and we ask that you please practise your child’s poem with them as a part of their homework. Your child will be given the opportunity to nominate themselves for a performance of the poem at assembly, but your child does not have to do this.
  • Shoe box donations – thank you so much for all of your kind donations of shoe boxes thus far. We are still requiring quite a few more per class and ask that you continue to bring these in if you can. If possible, can you please ensure that the shoe boxes you hand in have a completely removable lid. This is to allow us to secure these to the bottom of the box and allow a sturdy piece of cardboard for us to put the wheel axis through.

Primary 2 Homework Week Beg. 04.11.19

Hello everyone, Please see homework and weekly notes below.

Primary 2 notes:

  • We have had some questions regarding the Maths homework jotters this week. These are purely for those activities which you feel your child could benefit from making jottings, writing sums, adding pictures/photographs. Please do not feel that these have to be used every week, they have been provided to aid your child in their mathematical thinking. The grid has also been designed so that you are able to challenge and support your child as you feel necessary. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.
  • Reminder of our open afternoon next week on Wednesday 13th November 2pm-3pm.

P2K Parent Helpers.

Hello everyone,

Next week we will be celebrating numeracy and maths throughout the school. As part of our learning, we will be visiting the Co-op on Thursday 3rd October from 11:30 – 12:00. The school are kindly asking for each child to bring in £1 to spend whilst we are there. P2K will be encouraged to purchase anything they wish from the fruit and vegetable section inside. To help us cross the road safely and with help inside the Co-op, I would love for 2 parent helpers to join us on our short trip. If you are able to help us please let me know as soon as possible.  We will be aiming to leave the school at 11:20.

Thank you for all your help and continued support,

Mrs Kane. 🙂
