P2 Update 17.5.21

Hello Everyone,

Last week in Primary 2 the children really enjoyed learning all about Arctic foxes as part of our Hot/ Cold Countries topic. They created some lovely artwork using different materials to make their own Arctic foxes and produced very detailed factual reports to share their knowledge.

This week we will focus on polar bears and they will continue to work on non-fiction skills in Writing to create a report sharing the facts they have learned. The children’s targets are to use subheadings, include an appropriate title and write in present tense along with all the core targets we look for in every piece of writing e.g. capital letters and full stops, connectives etc.

This week in Maths, we are beginning to learn about fractions including halving numbers and moving on to halving and quartering shapes.

In PE, the children have started learning about cricket and we are focussing on throwing and catching skills as well as target practise. We will also be practising Sports Day activities with the aim of completing a class Sports Day closer to the end of term.

Please remember that Monday 24th May is a holiday.

Thank you for your continuing support,

Mrs Oliver, Miss Pringle and Miss Rafferty
