# P2 news and info 16.1.23

Week Beginning: 16.1.23

Reading:  All groups have a new book.  Reading should be done daily so that children learn the words and sounds throughout the week.

High Frequency Words – work was given out last week and should be continued (For now, this is instead of spelling homework)

Scots Poems – we have a choice of 2 J.K. Annand poems – The Doctor and Mince and Tatties.  Children should learn one of these for next Tuesday where they will all recite their poem to their buddies.  Mrs Caldwell would like children to be encouraged to recite them in front of the whole class, those who do will be considered for the poetry competition.

Numeracy – We are looking at knowing adding and subtraction in 20 and how to solve these.  Doubles to 20 without counting

We are also looking at adding 10s and 1s in our heads so we can add 2 digit numbers e.g. 12 add 24 strategy mentally would be 10 + 20 = 30, 2 add 4 = 6 so the answer is 30+6 = 36. We are currently using concrete materials to represent these but the end goal is to be able to work these out mentally.

Scottish week – we are looking at Katie Morag stories and features of Scotland’s landscape etc.

Nurture Focus fortnight on Nurture principle 2 – The classroom provides a safe base. In class task this week and a home learning task will be given out next week.

PLEASE PROVIDE CHILDREN WITH INDOOR SHOES LEFT IN SCHOOL TO CHANGE INTO.
