P2 Homework W/B 21.5.18

Hi all,

Here is the homework for this week.

Reading – Well done to all pupils who practised a poem for recital within class. We’ll return to normal reading books this week. Can you ensure that reading is practised regularly and that book bags are brought to school daily, with reading books inside. Thanks. 

Spelling – Homework now runs from Monday to Monday so does not need to be completed by Friday mornings anymore. List 2 this week please.

No numeracy homework this week.

Topic – We are continuing to study the sea and have been busy creating sea collages and writing imaginative stories. The science outcome this week is to learn more about food chains.

Request – I’ve planned an art activity which involves creating moulds of shells in plaster. We need small plastic tubs for this – butter spread type size of tubs- if you have any, can you send these in please. Thanks.

PE –  This will definitely be on Wednesday and possibly Thursday. We are having to work around demands on the hall timetable this week. We may be able to go outside for PE but this is weather dependent!

Parents Meetings – I gave appointment times out on Friday. If your time and date is not suitable, please contact the School Office.

The Summer Fair is on Friday this week at 11am. Thanks to all who donated tombola prizes. A letter is due to come out to confirm whether you ( or designated adult) is able to collect your child from class at 11 o’clock on Friday to enjoy the fair together. If not, your child will stay with myself or a Learning Assistant to visit the fair and be picked up from the class door as normal at 12:25pm. In this case, it is very helpful if the children have their own money to spend at the fair.

Deep Sea World – Just a gentle reminder to pay for the trip and complete the permission slip if you have not already done so.

That’s all for now!

Thanks,

Miss Sara Brunt

 

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
