P2M – What we have been learning this week 08.02.19


This week we revised our learning on magic e! Please see previous posts for words we have covered. We understand what the job of the magic e is – it turns a short vowel (bouncy sound) into a long vowel (stretchy sound).

We enjoyed practising our tricky words (see last week’s post for words).


We continue to enjoy “The owl who was afraid of the dark”.


Things to do at home:

look for magic e words about – talk about what happens to the vowel

read different books at home and discuss what happened at the beginning, middle and end of the story

Maths and Numeracy 

This week we continued learning about money. We enjoyed using money to pay for different items – we even had a little shop in the classroom. Some of us found this tricky so will keep practising this after the holiday.

Things to do at home:

keep practising to count forwards and backwards in 2s, 5s and 10s


explore the coins/notes – what coins would pay for different items (up to £1/£2)

Other areas of the curriculum 

Generation Science

We has so much fun learning about forces. We enjoyed different activities learning about floating, sinking, pulling, pushing, friction and gravity.

Before completing the experiments, we had to predict what we think would happen! This is important as all scientists do this – we were little scientists for the morning.

IDL (Topic)

We enjoyed learning all about the moon and answering some of our questions like “why does the moon shine?” and “where does the moon go when the sun is up?” We used a torch to show the sun, a mirror to represent the moon and a ball for the earth. This helped us understand that the sun’s light reflects on the moon (and the earth).



We are learning how to follow and say classroom instructions. This included listen, look, sit down, stand up, write and hands up.

P2 Show

Exciting News – this week we started preparing for the P2 Show! Watch this space for more details.


Have a wonderful holiday!
