We have had a very busy week in Primary 2/1 this week. In Maths the Primary Ones have been working on numbers to 10. We have been mainly focusing on the correct way to form numbers 0,1 and 2. We have also been counting together, challenging ourselves to see how far we can go! The Primary Twos have been working hard on some consolidation of addition. We have been using cubes and number lines to add numbers to 20.
In Language the Primary Ones have been working a little on rhyme. This is something that you can work on with them at home, asking them if they can think of something that rhymes with cat/bug/pen etc. We would also encourage you to read rhyming stories together and discuss the words that rhyme. The Primary Twos have been consolidation blending 4 letter words. Again this is something that the children can be trying at home, encourage them to try and hear 4 sounds in a word e.g. slug, nest etc.
We have also started our work on SHANARRI in class this week. We have been focusing on SAFE and HEALTHY before moving on to ACTIVE, NURTURE, ACHIEVE and RESPECT next week. We have been sorting safe and unsafe activities and looking at what foods are healthy and unhealthy.
We would like to remind you to send your child with a bottle with water in it each day, please no juice or flavoured water. Gym days are Tuesday and Wednesday where children can come to school in their gym kit, which should be suitable for outdoors.
Thank you for your continued support this year so far, if there is anything you should wish to discuss, please telephone the office and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thank you again,
Mrs Muir and Mrs Steel
