P2/3 Golden Treasures Week Beginning 8th March

Another busy week of learning in class this week! Here is what we’ve been learning about:


  • Spelling: we used games and activities to help us to learn our sounds this week including drawing spelling words in a picture
  • Team Jewel- working on the ng and ck end sounds
  • Team Gold– continuing working on soft c, where the c makes an ‘s’ sound.
  • Team Treasure- multi-syllable words
  • Reading- continuing to explore poetry; acting out poems (Splish, Splash, Splosh and Going Through Old Photographs) using expression and actions to help bring the poems to life
  • Handwriting– practising formation, focusing on the correct height of letters
  • Grammar– looking at our use of adjectives
  • Writing– using adjectives in our writing

At home ideas:

  • Practise your spellings- choose an activity from the spelling grid or you could draw your words with outdoor chalk/make them from outdoor materials (sticks, stones etc)
  • Using a book at home (or using the link below to the Highway Rat) to see how many pairs of rhyming words you can find
  • https://video.link/w/Kcgac


  • Continuing to work on our number recognition of a range of different numbers (0-100, 0-1000 and beyond for some) and being able to say the number before and number after these numbers. Exploring vocabulary around this (for example, one less and one more)
  • Working on being able to write a variety of numbers in the range 0-100, 0-1000 (and beyond for some)
  • Number sequences- counting up and back from different starting points.
  • Using our times tables in a problem solving context.
  • Looking at problem solving with Bobbie Bear- we used the strategy “draw it out” to solve this problem.
  • Continuing to look at the properties of 3-d shapes.

At home ideas:

Other Areas

  • Working on our EMERGENCY 999!– finding out about what counts as an Emergency and linking the topic to Technology by designing/making our own Emergency vehicles.
  • French- consolidating our learning of 1-10.
  • PE- practising for the Race for Life by working on our stamina.
  • Outdoor learning- practising our Drama skills outdoors.

At home ideas:

  • Go on some runs/walks and see if you can increase your speed and distance over the week (Race for Life on 20th March)
  • Make your own emergency vehicle using recycled materials.

We’ll see you all on Monday- enjoy your weekend everyone!
