P2/3 Golden Treasures Reflective Friday week beginning 26th April


  • Spelling: this week we practised our spelling words using Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check; rewrote them in our neatest cursive writing and completed some worksheet tasks
  • Team Jewel- revising ar and or; introducing the sound ‘ir’
  • Team Gold– working on adding ‘ing’ endings to words where you don’t need to make any changes to the root word
  • Team Treasure- ‘al’ words where it makes the ‘ol’ sound
  • Reading- using our skim/scan skills to look for words in our reading books; reading for information about Scottish wildlife
  • Handwriting– practising formation, focusing on the correct height of letters
  • Writing- beginning to look at using awesome openers to start our sentences.

At home ideas:

  • Paint your spelling words on a big sheet of paper or ‘paint’ them with water outside.
  • Skim and scan a book/magazine/comic from home to pick out as many words as you can with 3, 4, 5 and 6 letters in them. Record them in lists.


  • Working on adding ten to any number (within range of 0-100, 0-1000 and beyond for some). If we found this easy, using this skill to add 9 or add 11
  • Practising our speedy times tables
  • Looking at position and movement- using grid references (and angles for some).

At home ideas:

  • Find numbers all around you and see if you can add ten to them. Can you use this skill to add 9 or add 11?
  • Continue to work on your times tables- there’s a link to a game below:


Other Areas

  • Science- beginning a mini project about how plants grow
  • French- continuing to practise our colours
  • RME– we read a story about Ramadan
  • PE- we had input from Active Schools this week and played some fun games (in the rain!)

At home ideas:

  • Help around your home by asking if there are plants that you can help to look after.
  • Listen to the song we heard in class about how plants grow
  • Make a colourful poster to show the colours in French (the link below may help you)

Have a great long weekend everyone, remember that we’re not back in school until Wednesday. Mrs Tweedie is teaching on Wednesday next week.
