What have we been learning in P2D this week? (Week beginning 22.1.18)


Your child will have a core book home in their purple bag. Please read a little each day. Can you spot any soft ‘c’ words as you read?

Each child has also been given a tricky word sheet to work on at home. Please read and spell the words in the grid. (See previous blog post)



We are learning all about the soft ‘c’ sound in ‘ice’.

Here are examples of words below:

spice                              twice

nice                                dice



We have been writing all about the poet ‘Robert Burns’. Can you share a fact about Robert Burns with a parent/carer at home?
