P2 Homework w.b 17/9/18

Apologises that the homework update is a little late in being posted this week.

For this week, the children will also have numeracy homework in their book bags – this has also to be completed for Friday and will be handed out today (Wednesday).

Reading: Please complete the pages written inside your child’s reading record.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘ng’ sound, this should be the next list in your child’s jotter. Along with writing their spelling words in their jotter, children can also practise their words in bubbles, sand etc – to make learning them more fun and engaging! (In class, we like to use whiteboards and play dough!)

Numeracy – For homework, they have a worksheet that has various questions on it – e.g. half of 8 is. Please complete this for Friday! 

On days when there is no  homework please encourage your child to read something that they enjoy, so they are still gaining this reading practice.

Thank you,

Miss Lauren Waller

 

 

 

 

P2 Homework w.b 10/9/18

Hello!

Just a reminder that the school photographer will be in on Wednesday! 

Primary 2 will still have P.E on a Tuesday and a Thursday with me on a Tuesday and Mrs. Wallace on a Thursday. This commencing week is ‘Schools Fitness Week’ – this was created by Joe Wicks (more commonly known as The BodyCoach), and he will be creating a new 20 minute HIIT workout over three days for schools to take part in, so I am looking forward to taking part in this and keeping the children (and myself) fit.

Additionally, this coming week is  ‘Maths Week Scotland’ so I am going to join our class on SumDog and I have lots of fun maths activities planned for the week. (The children should all have their own individual SumDog logins in their bookbags! If not, let me know and I can get you a copy.)

Reading – The children will have reading homework on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night. The pages for this will be written inside of their green reading records.

Spelling – This week we will be learning thethsound. I will put a copy of their spelling list inside their spelling jotter for them to practice through different activities (there should be an example list inside this jotter).

Also, Primary 2 will be starting their IDL topic this week which is Seashore! It’s going to be a very busy and fun week!

P2 Homework w/c 3/9/18

Welcome back!

I hope everyone has had a lovely summer and is feeling ready for the new school year. Apologies, for not putting the P2 homework on the website last week, but from now on I will post it every Sunday evening in time for it being handed out on Tuesday.

Homework

Homework will be given out every Tuesday and should be handed in on Friday. Some weeks there may be tasks that will require more time, but I will ensure that I let you know this in advance. In your child’s book bag there is a reading record which I will write their reading homework in and a spelling jotter for them to complete their spelling homework in.

Reading – Reading homework will be every night (Tues, Wed and Thurs) and I will write the pages that have to be read in their records. Sometimes there may be activities and key words to go along with their books too.

Spelling – There will be a new spelling list every week and inside the spelling jotters I have added a list of the different ways that the children could practice their words (for example, look, cover, write, check or writing them in bubble writing). Do feel free to come up with your own ideas too! This week the spelling list will be  ‘ch’ words.

Primary 2 really enjoy reading comics/magazines so I was wondering if anyone had any pre-loved ones that they would be happy to donate to our class library. It would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your support,

Miss Waller

 

P2 News W/B 25.6.18

Hi all,

It’s the final countdown! Our last week of P2. What a quick year it seems to have been; it feels no time at all since I was just getting to know my new class and suddenly,  it’s time to say goodbye!

Homework

There will be no new homework this week. Instead, I will start to collect in reading books and library books.

Bring a sturdy plastic bag! Children will get their work home this week and will need to empty trays, take home PE kits, water bottles etc. Any items left behind will most likely not be kept.

School finishes for the summer break on Friday at 12 noon.

Finally, I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank all the P2 parents for being such a supportive group and to thank all my P2 pupils for being such fun! I wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe summer.

Thanks again,

Miss Sara Brunt

 

 

P2 Homework W/B 18.6.18

Hi all,

Here’s a selection of pictures from Health Week.

As you can see, an energetic and fun time was had!

Anyway, we are now starting our second last week of P2. This will be the final week of homework.

Spelling – finish the sixth and final list in the common words booklet.

Reading – we will finish off current books in class but I am unlikely to give out new ones. We will read other books in class.

Numeracy – Here’s a link to game we played last week which practises adding on 10 to a number.

Topic – We have finished with the sea theme and will be doing a mini ‘local study’ topic which will involve looking at Loanhead and using simple maps. It would be very helpful for children to know their address, which will also link in with personal safety chats we’ll have prior to the summer break.

Library – can all library books be returned this week please.

PE – Wednesday and Thursday

That’s all for now,

Miss S Brunt

 

 

Another Successful Health Week!

This week has been our Health Week at Loanhead Primary, and what an amazing week it has been.  Every class has enjoyed learning about health and wellbeing as well as trying out different sports and healthy activities.  We thank Mrs Duncan for organising this week for us, without her then this week could not have happened.

Classes kicked off the week with our amazing sports day, another thanks to Mrs Duncan and the P7s for running this for the school.  It was a lovely afternoon filled with a lot of laughter and team spirit and it was great to see so many parents, carers, friends and family here to support the pupils.

The rest of the week was filled with our early morning warm ups in the playground, American Football, Football, Hockey, Cycling, Rugby, Judo, Movement to Music, Yoga, Judo, Relaxation, Healthy food making, Dance, Sleep and gaming awareness, Police talks, Internet safety, our fabulous bike breakfast (storm Hector can not stop us!) and so much more!

Here are some photos of this amazing week.

 

P2 Homework and Events W/B 11.6.18

Hi all,

It’s that time of year again – It’s Health Week 2018!

Children will have taster sessions of a variety of sports this week and in anticipation of extra tiredness after school, I have only set spelling as homework.  Children will not get a new book so please read current book a few pages a night and I will endeavour to hear reading in between sports activities this week!

Spelling – List 5.

Reading – continue with current book.

Health Week Schedule for P2 

Monday – SPORTS DAY @ 1:15pm. Children are put into their house team colours and  led by P7 children. The first part of sports day involves activities where house teams earn points for goals or runs achieved. This takes place in the playground. There are 6 events each, including Penalty Shoot Out, Hockey and Obstacles.

The second part of the event takes place in the MUGA. Children assemble in their classes before the running races and relays take place. P2 do not take part in the relay race.

The end of the event may take place outside the dining room where the overall house winner is announced but this is to be confirmed. Sometimes, I like to take my class back inside for a quick toilet visit when the relays are on! Just in case you see us disappear! All children return to their classrooms at the very end to collect their bags and must be dismissed by me from there.

In the event of bad weather, sports will continue inside but unfortunately,  we cannot allow spectators in so let’s all do a sun dance!

Tuesday – 08:50 Whole  school ‘warm up’ in playground.

– Rugby

– Jo Jingles ( Music and Movement)

Wednesday – 08:50  Whole  school ‘warm up’ in playground. 

– PE ( to include a Dance session)

– Hockey

Thursday – Bike Breakfast – at 08:30. Cycle or scoot to school and enjoy a free breakfast!

So, as you can see, a very busy, active week!

That’s all for now,

Miss Sara Brunt

 

 

P2 Trip to Deep Sea World 4.6.18

Hi all,

What a fabulous day we had at Deep Sea World! We had a classroom lesson where we discovered the effects of plastic pollution in the sea and the children got to meet a real live starfish. Then, we watched the seals being fed and doing some exercises. We had great fun practising our monetary numeracy whilst browsing and buying in the shop! At lunch, having a packed lunch out with friends is always exciting. Afterwards, watching the  seahorses being fed and spending time in the underwater tunnel was truly amazing. Even the journey to and from DWS allowed us to view three incredible engineering feats as we could look at the 3 Forth Bridges!

All in all, a super day- the children were fully engaged in their learning and were absolute ambassadors for Loanhead Primary in how they conducted themselves around the venue! Thank you P2 and also to the helpers who accompanied us on this wonderful trip.
