P2 Homework W/B 14.5.18

Hi all,

Homework this week:

Reading – we’ll continue with the poetry books but will have a book swap during the week. I’d like children to practise reading poems aloud, choosing one in particular to recite to the class or their group. This does not have to be memorised.

Spelling – we have completed the spelling lists which feature a sound blend each week. We will now practise words from the ‘First Hundred Common Words’. I will send home new spelling sheets on Tuesday so the red spelling jotters are now redundant.

Numeracy – We have been working on place value to 100 ( tens and units) and to 100 ( hundreds, tens and units). We have been developing mental strategies for adding two digit numbers together. For example: 24 + 12 is the same as saying 20 + 10 + 4 + 2 = 36 and 32 + 17 = 30 + 10 + 2 + 7 = 49 and so on.  I have put a challenge on Sumdog related to this, ‘P2 Place Value’.

Events this week:

National Numeracy Day – Wednesday 16th. Children will have a focus on numeracy in real life. Check out Twitter for updates during the day!

Dress Down Day on Friday – Can children please dress down and  bring a prize suitable for the tombola at the Summer Fair .

PE – Will be on Wednesday and Friday this week.

Library – please return library books and children will be able to choose a new one on Friday 18th.

Deep Sea World trip ( 4th June) – Children were given an information sheet with a permission slip to complete so please return this as soon as possible. Payment can be made to the office, to me or through Parentpay. I’m aware that the cost of this particular trip is high so if anyone has any difficulties paying this, please let me know.

Thanks for your support,

Miss S Brunt

 

P2 Homework W/B Tuesday 8th May 2018

Hi all,

Spelling – List 36 ‘aw’

Reading – Please check post-it notes in reading books. This week, I will also send home poetry books . This is to help prepare children to write their own poems for the up and coming school poetry competition. The stage of poetry book may be below your child’s current reading book but that is fine. Your child should find a poem he/she particularly likes to practise reading aloud with expression. Also be aware of which words rhyme and the structure of the poem.

Numeracy – In class, we’ve been studying 2 and 3 digit numbers in terms of place value i.e. hundreds, tens and units (ones).

The SSPCA will be visiting school on Thursday so P2 will go to watch and listen to their talk.

PE – Wednesday and Thursday

Summer Trip – P2 will go to Deep Sea World on Monday 4th June. This is part of our current project about the sea. Details to follow, with cost etc.

That’s all for now,

Thank you,

S.Brunt

P2 Events W/B 26.3.18

Hi all,

This term seems to have flown past and we are now starting the final week before the Easter holidays. A reminder that school finishes up on Thursday at 3:15pm.

Children will be asked to bring PE kits and indoor shoes home to check/wash/ repair/replace for the new term, starting on Tuesday 17th April.

There will be no new homework this week apart from finishing current reading books. I’ll collect the red spelling jotters in on Monday. We were doing assessments last week and so, I did not hear all the reading that I usually do.

Events:

Monday – wear something purple to show support for our ‘epilepsy awareness’ day. It can be something very small like a hairband or watch or bigger, like a T-shirt.

PE – will be on Tuesday and possibly Thursday, if I can get a hall in the morning.

Wednesday – The school gardener Paulo will be back to work with P2 to pot up sunflower seedlings.

Thursday – We’ll have an Easter activity morning, including crafts/games and the P7 House Captains, have organised a ‘carrot hunt’ for each class. Then, it’s off to church in the afternoon for the traditional Easter service with Mr Duffin.

 

Topic– we’ll finish up our topic on electricity. Last week, children investigated conductors and insulators. Next term, we’ll have topics on the seashore, a local study and Health Week.

Thanks for your support,

Miss S Brunt

P2 Homework W/B 19.3.18 *Edited*

Hi all,

*I forgot to say, in my original post, that the school photographer will be in on Wednesday to take class photos.

Homework this week:

Spelling – ‘al’. Please complete homework in red jotters unless children do ‘alternative’ work and show me.

Reading – as normal – check post-it notes please. Please ensure your child reads aloud regularly ( if not daily)  to you- it is vital at this stage, it really is!

Maths– I’ve put a ‘Graphs, Charts and Tables’ challenge on Sumdog – 100 points to earn. This involves data handling. Have a go!

Gardening – Children will have their last session on Friday but have had lots of fun with Paulo, building ‘plant towers’ by recycling water bottles. Results and pictures to follow at a later date.

Topic– P2 have LOVED exploring circuits as part of the electricity project, quite literally having ‘lightbulb’ moments! Children have discovered how to make fans and buzzers work and how to make a lightbulb glow brighter. This week, we’ll find out about insulators and conductors.

Two weeks to go until the Easter holiday so I’ll make this week the last one for homework!

Thanks,

S.Brunt

 

P2 Homework W/B 12.3.18

Hi all,

Homework this week:

Spelling – List 28 ‘oy’

Reading – as usual ; check post-it notes please.

PE – Wednesday and Thursday

Gardener – Our school gardener Paulo was out last Friday and all children planted seeds in pots. The ground has been too frozen to plant anything outside. Paulo has asked if children can bring in empty plastic juice/water bottles ( 2 L would be great) so that they can construct bottle towers for germinating seeds in. Bottles are required by this Friday.

Library – children can choose new books this Friday so need to return their last one.

 

Thanks for your support,
