P2/1 Weekly Reflection

What a great way to end the term, today we enjoyed Digi Day. To kick us off we watched Hector’s World and discussed why we should not share our personal details online then we had lots of fun playing with digital resources including a robot that follows a pen line, the Beebots and a remote controlled duplo vehicle. We also had a chance at some athletics on the Wii.

This week in writing we have been focusing on descriptions about our family members. Minny and Dexter really enjoyed writing about their wee sisters. We were trying hard to remember our capital letters and full stops.

In phonics the Primary 2 have now revised all of their RWI set 2 sounds and are ready to move on to set 3 after the holidays. The common words we have focused on this term are I, the, of, me, they, want, like, her, she, we, some, put, water, these and to, it would be great if you could practise these at home too.  Our new sounds in Primary 1 this week were and b, so we have now covered m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, g, o, c, k, u and the common words we have learnt are I, me, the, of, my, said, he and no. 

In numeracy this week we were continuing our learning of part-whole models and we began to think about the addition symbol and used this to make some number sentences. We also learned about fact families and how by using 3 numbers we can create 4 different number sentences.

In our transport themed play we were making comparisons between types of transport from the past and present. Mrs Clyne asked us if we could travel by any method of transport what would we choose and why, here’s what some of us said:-

“A black jet because you go high up and see lots of things” JB

“An areoplane coz I can see the air and the sky too and I want to go on holiday.” EW

“A bus because I’ve never been on a bus before.” DA

“I want to go on a campervan because you can take marshmallows and sleep at night.” KH

“I want to go on Easyjet so I can go to Spain again.” KG

“An aeroplane because I want to go to Africa to see wild animals.” HC

We have settled in well to Primary 2/1 and have worked hard this term. Now it’s time to have a rest and enjoy some family time. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our parents and carers for their support in the children’s learning, it is much appreciated.

We wish you all a safe and healthy holiday and look forward to seeing all the children back in school on Tuesday 19th October.
