Primary 2 Update 14.9.20

Hello Everyone,

We had another busy week in Primary 2 last week and have been continuing our Superhero topic chosen by the children. They particularly enjoyed carrying out an investigation to find out the best material to create a Super hero cape! In Writing, the children used some super adjectives to describe the view a Superhero would see from the sky. After the September break we will link out Superhero topic to ‘real life’ heroes in our People Who Help Us topic.

As part of Health and Wellbeing, we had great fun meeting our SHANARRI characters who will help us learn about the 8 well-being indicators- Safe, Healthy, Achieving, Nurtured, Active, Respected, Responsible and Included. The children loved Safe Stella the Superhero Rabbit, Health Henry the Apple, Achieving Andrew, Nurturing Nora, Active Amiir, Respected Rhya, Responsible Robbie and Included Isobel!

This week in Numeracy we will focus on counting sets and representing numbers in different ways e.g. using tens frames, in numbers, in words, building towers etc. In Writing, the children will write an acrostic poem using their ideas from our Superhero topic. Children are continuing to read in class and homework and reading books will be issued from week beginning 28th September.

Reminders: Outdoor PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Please send children to school in PE kit . Please send children to school with a water bottle each day.

Thank you for your continuing support,

Mrs Oliver, Mrs Harris and Miss Rafferty
