P2c. Our week ending 15.6.18

Literacy

We revised all our block 3, 4 and 5 tricky words and introduced “money”

We chose our favourite story to share in our Learning Stories .

We decided we would chose our own topic in our story writing with ideas which ranged from an alien invasion , to a woodland walk adventure or fun at the beach. We were very creative in our vocabulary.

We wrote our own feedback on the P7 show .Some of us chose to read our reviews to the P7s . They are going to use our feedback as quotes in their report writing. We enjoyed sharing our learning.

Thank you for your continued support with practising key vocabulary and signing the reading record. This was the last week of reading in P2

We are continuing to work in class on predicting, analysing and discussing the wide range of texts we read – including, but not limited to, our home reading books. We would encourage the children to make personal choices of reading material from home and library – school reading books are only a small part of becoming an avid reader.

Numeracy & Mathematics

We explored Venn diagrams and organised a wide range of objects using various criteria

We  revised our 2, 5 and 10 times tables, orally and had fun with subtraction facts.

Please continue to use the hit the button interactive game to consolidate your knowledge of the tables ( and the link to division facts )

Other areas of the curriculum

We  continued to learn about growth and fixed mindsets and the power of “…..YET” !

We looked at the effects pollution has on our environment, particularly in the oceans and seas and the importance of recycling. We had some very animated discussions !

We investigated the work of Monet and other artists and created our very own Masterpiece in the style of Monet

In PE we continued practising our hand and eye coordination byt using a tennis racquet.

We watched the P7 dress rehearsal which we all loved and found really funny. We were quite excited as our buddies were all starring!
