P2 Homework w.b. 9.3.20

Hi all,

**Just a reminder that all trip letters (for Rosslyn Chapel) should be handed in next week please, if you have not already handed it in**

We are very excited to have Miss Clements join us on Monday and stay with us until the summer term. P.E will be on Monday and Tuesday morning this week.

Apologises I did not send out the non-fiction worksheet to go alongside reading books this week, time escaped me. We have finished learning about money and are moving onto time in maths – we are focusing on reading o’clock and half past times on analogue and digital clocks.

Homework for the week:

Reading: Pages to be read have been written in your child’s green reading record. Please sign against the date to indicate that homework has been completed.

Spelling: We will be learning the ‘y’ sound (pronounced as the long i vowel sound) – fry, sky and shy etc. The spelling list will contain words with this sound.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller (L.Waller@mgfl.net)

 

P2 Homework w.b. 2.3.20

Hi all,

I sent out a letter on Thursday regarding our school trip to Rosslyn Chapel, if this could be signed and returned to school by Friday 6th March, it would be greatly appreciated. We are only out of school for the morning so children will be back in time as usual for school lunches.

Miss Clements will be joining us in P2 from Monday 9th March and will be with us until the end of the school year. She has been working with P5 since August and we are very excited for her to join us!

World Book Day is on Thursday 5th March – please see the post below regarding what is happening on this day. 

Homework for the week:

Reading: Children will be receiving non-fiction books, as this will be our focus for the week. There will also be a worksheet relating to their book put into their book bags on Tuesday to be completed for Friday.

Spelling: We are learning the ‘igh’ sound – for example, light and fight. Please complete the list in the spelling jotter.

Thank you!

Hello!

Your child should have taken their Learning Trio report home on Friday but if it has not made its way home, then please let me know and I will get you a new copy.

On Wednesday 25th March, we are going on a trip to Rosslyn Chapel to take part in a ‘Stars’ workshop, which ties into our upcoming topic ‘Day and Night’. The bus leaves around 9:10am and we should be back in school for before 11am. I am looking for a parent helper to accompany us on the trip, if you are available and would like to come along, then please let me know! ( L.Waller@mgfl.net)

This Friday (28th Feb) I am out of class, as I am attending a training course so Mrs Cumming will be taking the class. 

‘Loanhead Primary has Talent’ is on Friday evening at the Loanhead Miners Club and tickets (£3.50 per adult/children are free) can be purchased at the school office, it should be great fun! The doors open at 6:15pm, for a 7pm start.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘ea’ sound (makes the long vowel e sound) – for example, tea, meat and bean). Please ensure your child is practising reading these words, as well as writing them.

Have a fab weekend,

Apologies for the delay in this being posted. I hope you all had a wonderful and well-rested break during the holidays.

This week is Health week and we will be focusing on mental health and substance misuse (for example, what are medicines?).

Just a gentle reminder that all children should have indoors shoes and a full P.E. kit please.

Learning Trio Appointments will be taking place this week on Thursday and Friday – please remember that your child must be present too as we will be working as a trio to create new targets for the term.

On Monday (tomorrow) we have a new author coming in to read their book to us, which will be very exciting!

Homework for the week:

Reading: Pages to be read will be in your child’s green reading record. Some children will be moving stages in their reading books after the holiday, it is important to complete reading homework to increase confidence and fluency.

P2 Homework w.b. 20.1.20

Hi all,

I hope you are all well! I just wanted to take a moment to say how impressed I am at how quickly the class have settled back into the school routine. They have been working so hard over the past 2 weeks and I am one very proud teacher!!

Just a reminder that children will be reciting their chosen Scots poem to the class on Monday/Tuesday. Then two children will be picked to perform their poem at the Burns assembly on Friday 24th. The parents/carers of the chosen children will be informed and invited to attend the assembly.

Learning Trio appointment slips are going out on Wednesday 22nd January, they will be put in your child’s book bag. If you cannot make your allocated time or require a change then please contact the school office to do this. 

We started rugby on Thursday afternoon with Bradley, and the children had a very fun time. The class will have rugby for the next two Thursday afternoons too.

Homework:

Reading: I have been busy assessing the children and changing reading groups, so some children may have a different stage to read next week. Please continue to support your child with learning their key words (these are only required from Stage 1 – Stage 5). The pages to be read have been written in your child’s green reading record.

Spelling: We are learning magic e with o (o_e), for example, bone, cone and stone.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller

 

P2 Homework w.b. 13.1.20

Hi all,

Just a gentle reminder that your child has two Scottish poems in their book bag (Mince and Tatties, and Doctor). Your child should pick one which they wish to learn and the children will have a chance to recite this in front of the class on Monday 20th January. Please ensure your child has chosen and had a chance to practice the poem by this date and then some children will be picked to recite their poem at the assembly on Friday 24th January.

P.E. this week will be Monday and Wednesday morning, please ensure your child has full P.E. kit for this.

This coming week (13.1.20) I will be assessing children with their reading and key words, so over the next few weeks some children may move groups and stages in their reading books.

Rugby was unforunately cancelled this week, but as far as I am aware, it will be back on for next week.

We are moving onto money this term in maths – looking at coins up to £2! If children have real life experience with handling money in shops etc. then this would be great to hear about in class.

Reading: The pages to be read have been written in your child’s green reading record. Please encourage your child to read with expression, this is a big focus in our reading groups this term.

Spelling: This week we are looking at magic e with i(i_e). The spelling list contains (i_e) words and tricky words.

As always, please never hesitate to contact me: L.Waller@mgfl.net
