P2 Welcome Back

Welcome back to school everyone!

Just a little note that I will not be sending home reading this week. Instead we will be working on reading skills in class.

Just a reminder to make sure your child has a coat each day.

I hope everyone has had a super holiday and we are all looking forward to the term ahead.

Thanks for your support,

Miss Davidson 🙂

P2D Information

Welcome back everyone!

I will begin sending reading home next week. We are going to trial sending home only the ‘core’ reading book for the next 4 weeks. Please continue reading a variety of books which interest your child at home.

Learning stories will come home altogether from now on. We will send these home on the dates below with new targets to work on with your child and evidence of their learning:

  • Friday 10th November
  • Friday 1st December

Please continue to check the class blog each Friday. We will share what we have been learning so that you can work on this at home. I will add examples of any maths/numeracy learning if needed.

Can’t wait for another great term!

Many thanks for your continued support,

Miss Davidson

P2D Reading

Hi everyone,

I have sent home ‘Reading Walls’ in your child’s purple bag today. Please work on reading the words quickly. The word wall links to the reading level your child is working on. If you are super confident with reading all of the words then you can work on spelling these.

I will collect in all purple bags on Friday and these will be handed out again after the October break.

Many thanks!
