What we will be learning in Primary 2
Our class teacher is Miss Calvert
Our PE days are: Tuesday and Wednesday
We’ll learn to read lots of different text – our reading and library books, comics, leaflets, menus etc. We will further develop our sight vocabulary and improve our fluency and expression when reading. We’ll continue to learn to find specific information from different texts. We’ll look at a wide variety of books and listen to stories being read to us.We’ll learn to write in different ways paying particular attention to the correct use of capital letters and full stops. We’ll focus on sequencing our writing to make sure it makes sense. We will learn to say the alphabet. We’ll learn to speak confidently when we give talks, do assembly presentations and take part in our St.Andrew’s and Christmas concerts. We’ll learn to think about our audience, why we are talking, how quickly we talk and how interesting our voices sound. We’ll extend our listening skills through the use of musical and recall activities.
There’s a lot to maths! Shape, position and movement, number, money and measure and information handling. We will be learning to work with numbers to 20 and to add and subtract more confidently. We’ll work with money and will add to our knowledge of 2D shapes and 3D objects. We’ll be learning to measure time, weight and length more accurately using standard units. We’ll look at maths in the world of work.
