Maths Week 28th September

Hello, Primary 2,

It’s Maths Week in Bishopton! We will be looking at linking maths to all aspects of our learning. The teachers have lots of fun things planned and organised for you!
As you may know, a Bishopton Primary tradition during Maths Week is to visit the local co-op. This links to numeracy and maths because we are using our counting skills and knowledge of money. The P2 teachers would like to say thank you to all those parents and guardians who volunteered to help walk us along to the co-op.
Please remember to bring £1 to spend in the shops. Your class will be visiting the Co-op on

P2E – Tuesday 28th September 9:00 am
P2K –  Thursday 30th September 11:45 am
P2B – Thursday 30th September 11:45 am

Please keep an eye out on your class TEAMS page, as there will be lots of photos of the fun maths activities posted throughout the week.

Thank you
The Primary 2 Teaching Team

Welcome back Primary 2!

Good morning Primary 2!

Welcome back to a new year at Bishopton Primary. We hope you have had a lovely summer. Mrs Kane, Mrs Brown, Miss Frew and Miss Grant are all very excited for the year ahead. 😊

Some housekeeping:

  • Last year we had some extra routines, such as soft-start, handwashing, and no personal belongings from home. These will continue this year.

  • Primary 2 will be using the middle playground to release children at the end of the day.

  • This year the dining hall will be fully operational. This means Primary 2 will be able to enjoy their lunch in the dining hall with their peers. We are thrilled that Primary 2 will have the opportunity to socialise during lunch again, however, a quick reminder, we are a nut-free school, so please be careful when choosing snacks for interval and lunchtime for your child.

For term 1, P.E. will be outside. The children are not required to change into a P.E kit for now. We encourage children to come in their relaxed uniforms on P.E days. The following timetable has your child’s P.E. days.

Class Days
P2F Miss Frew Monday and Thursday
P2B Mrs Brown

We will be issuing a homework letter soon. This will outline the details and expectations for homework in Primary 2. For now, we have created a table for each Primary 2 class, to give you an idea of when homework will be issued and when it should be returned.
