Homework this week-
Spelling/Handwriting – the focus sound is ‘ow’ as in snow, show, throw etc.
Reading – New books when appropriate- see post-it notes in books for homework reading practice. Thanks to all who practised their poems last week.
- Breaking news….P2 are going to have the opportunity to write a new ‘Biff and Chip’ story for a competition to celebrate 30 years of the Oxford Reading Tree.
Numeracy– Just a ‘Sumdog’ challenge this week, ‘P2 add and subtract’. I have reduced the number of questions for each challenge recently and the participation rate from pupils has since soared! Thanks to all who have taken part.
Events this week:
Thursday and Friday – PE
Friday – Library
More breaking news…P2 will draw pictures to decorate our local Loanhead library which is holding a ‘Love Your Library’ day this Saturday, 6th February.
Towards the end of this week, we are going to start learning about ‘Chinese New Year’. Next week, one of our parents has very kindly offered to come in to do various activities with the class, over a few days, to celebrate Chinese New Year. One of the activities will be to make and cook traditional Chinese pork dumplings and the children can try to use chopsticks. Please let me know if your child should not try one of these dumplings.
Thanks in advance,
