What have we been learning in P2D this week? (Week beginning 8.1.18)


No reading home this week. We are continuing to read poems during literacy time.


We are identifying verbs in poems. We are continuing to revise all magic ‘e’ sounds.


  • We have been ordering the months of the year- which month comes after March? Which month is the sixth month of the year? How many days are in May?
  • We are finding the missing number in an addition calculation

3 +      = 12                   27 +         = 36                         How many jumps between 27 and 36?

Work on this at home with a parent/carer. Bring in an example to share 🙂


We are beginning a new topic next week. We will keep you updated!

  • Changing seats!
  • Seeing our friends!
  • Painting Claude Monet inspired art

Welcome back P2D!

Happy New Year!

I hope that everyone has had a great Christmas holiday.

Please make sure you have your PE kit in school and also a pair of indoor shoes.

There will be no reading home this week. Reading will begin next week.

I will be sending home tricky word sheets to work on at home and also ‘Learn-it’ addition sheets. These will both be in your child’s purple bag.

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Davidson 🙂

Please read a little each day with your child. Can your child spot any compound words? rain + coat = raincoat / sun + flower = sunflower.

Write down any compound words you spot in your reading book or other texts at home and bring these into class to share.
