P2c – what we have been learning this week. 20.4.18

Literacy

  • We practised  “school” and “before” and revised our tricky words
  • In spelling we revised soft g in words like giant and bridge
  • We were learning how to write a holiday report and check our own punctuation and spelling.

On our Spelling City page, you can access the tricky word lists and some fun games to play for extra practice.

Thank you for your continued support  with practising key vocabulary and signing the reading record.

  • We are continuing to work in class on predicting, analysing and discussing the wide range of texts we read – including, but not limited to, our home reading books. We would encourage the children to make personal choices of reading material from home and library – school reading books are only a small part of becoming an avid reader.

Next week we will be back to sending a reading book home.

French

The whole school ‘word of the week’ was  assayez-vous

Numeracy & Mathematics

  • We continued learning to recognise coins and count sums of money.
  • We made a list of items we would need for the Queen’s birthday party.We chose 2 and calculated the total cost.
  • Try adding totals at home

Why don’t you play this game to help consolidate our learning about coins?

For  a challenge – try this game.

For  an even bigger challenge – try this game.

We were learning to count in equal groups and discovered that some totals could be grouped several ways eg 3 lots of 4 is the same as 4 lots of 3

 

Other areas of the curriculum

We discussed the season Spring and explored the playground to see what signs we could spot.

Maybe you can spot some when you are out and about.

RME- we looked at the signs and symbols linked to Christianity

PE- we practised the skills to help us ran faster

We have enjoyed learning outdoors this week in the sun!

Sports Relief 2018

MESSAGE FROM P5 PUPILS 

Dear Parents/Guardians

We are excited to tell you that Primary 5 are raising money for Sport Relief this year!

On Friday 16th March your children can dress up as their favourite sports person. Please bring in £1 (or contribute via Parent Pay). It would be great if the children could share one or two facts about their favourite sports person!

As well as dressing up we will be doing Run a Mile on Wednesday, Thursday  and Friday. Every class will be taking part in the run, so remember your trainers. Remember to do your best – run as far as you can.

Don’t feel the need to go out and buy new clothes. Be creative with what you have! Strips are allowed but we are reminding everyone to be respectful of all favourite sports stars.

Have fun!

From P5

On Friday 9th March (tomorrow) we are celebrating our class treat.

P2D have been busy being ‘secret students’ and have managed to collect 25 points!

P2C have collected all of their cheetah points too!

The children have voted and decided that they would like to bring in a toy from home.

No electronic toys and no items which are “precious”.

Please bring in your TOY tomorrow, as well as dressing as your favourite Book Character for World Book Day!

P2 Show Costume Information

Hi everyone,

We have sent home a letter in your child’s purple folder today.

Please could we have all costumes brought into school by Tuesday 12th March.

Originally we hoped to have these into school by the end of this week but because of the school closure we have pushed this date back.

Can each costume be brought into school in a plastic bag with your child’s name on it? Also with a coat hanger.

Thank you so much with your help with this,

The P2 Team 🙂
