We have enjoyed our short week in Primary 2 and have been very busy trying to fit everything in! The children enjoyed sharing their long weekend news with the class and it was lovely to hear about what everyone got up to.
This week we have been counting in 10s and the teachers were very impressed with the children’s ability to do this – well done. Please keep practising this at home too, particularly counting on in 10s from a given number e.g. 12, 22, 32…
We have also continued our work on phonemes and focused specifically on the ‘oy’ phoneme. This can be a tricky one and there was a little confusion so practise at home will be beneficial.
We are still enjoying our topic on life in the past and explored some household items from the past. The children looked closely at a Grandfather Clock and made their own version. We look forward to you seeing these on the wall at Parents’ Evening.
There are still several children coming to school on a Tuesday/Thursday without a gym kit. Please can you ensure shorts and t-shirt are provided on a Tuesday and an outdoor kit (joggers/shorts – weather dependent) are provided on a Thursday.
Thanks in advance,
Miss Pringle, Mrs Oliver and Miss Rafferty
