๐Ÿ‚ Primary 2 news/Info beginning 5.9.22

Hello P2 parents/families,

This week I will begin to send homework home.

Reading – There will be reading books to be read each night.ย  This is more than simply reading the pages- we will be looking at fluency, accuracy, comprehension and knowledge of key words and common words.ย  It is essential that you spend time enjoying reading with your child.

Spelling – Spelling words are given out on Monday for Friday.ย  Children will begin just writing these out using correct letter formation using the say, look, cover, write and check method.

Maths – Consolidation of in class work – this will not be given out every week.

Digital:ย  Some people have logged onto google classroom, there is no expectation for this just now but you have your child’s midlothian.education username or password on the password sheets from last year.ย  I will send new ones out but there is no rush until the children do familiarise themselves with it.

In class this week we will continue with our Dinosaur topic and writing more detailed and descriptive sentences.ย  We are developing our letter formation through regular handwriting exercises too. We are also looking at trying to combat letter and number reversals.

We have recently began using jotters for some of our learning.ย  The children are working really hard on presentation in these.

We have our class charter up, there was a vote on its theme and the majority of children chose dinosaurs.ย  After looking again at The Rights of a Child, we focussed on 3 simple rules for our class:

We are READY, we are RESPECTFUL and We are SAFE!

Please remember GREEN BOOK BAGS, water bottles, and indoor shoes for school.ย  PE is Monday and Wednesday.

One of the first pieces of writing we did was about what we like in school.ย  The pupils were asked to have a sentence with a connective (and or because) and a capital letter and a full stop.

PARENT COUNCIL MEETING – 7TH SEPTEMBER IN SCHOOL. DETAILS ON FACEBOOK.ย  NEW MEMBERS ARE NEEDED AND WELCOME!

๐ŸŒŸ Primary 2 News and info 29.8.22

This week in P2 we will be continuing our Dinosaur topic, writing Fact files and descriptions.๐Ÿฆ–

In numeracy we are looking at place value, H/T/O and how to write 3 digit numbers, counting up in 10’s past 100 and filling in missing numbers in a pattern that goes up/down in 1s, 5s or 10s.๐Ÿ”ข

I am rearranging reading groups and although we are doing reading in class, I will not send reading home until next week.ย  Children will also be given a home learning jotter where home activities should be done.ย  Please can children bring in their green book bags.๐Ÿ“š

We are entering using the atrium door now.ย  It is essential that children have indoor shoes to leave in school to change in to, especially now that the weather is a bit grimmer.๐Ÿ‘Ÿ

P.E- P.E is Wed and Mon – pupils should leave a PE kit in school, we are doing amazing at changing into our kit/uniform before and after P.E. this is an important life skill promoting independence and good hygiene.๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ

There are a few bugs going around, especially a sickness one.ย  We are continuing to reinforce handwashing and good personal hygiene.ย  Please remember that if your child has a sickness bug or upset tummy, they should not return to school until 48 hours after theย  last episode.ย  For more info, see here: Health and Safety in schoolsย ๐Ÿ‘

MEET THE TEACHER – Tuesday 3.15-3.45pm – I know everyone but feel free to come and say Hiย ๐Ÿ˜Š

We are still practicing logging into our chrome books and typing addresses into the address bar, we are building up skills so that when Chromebooks do go home, they are cared for and useful to enhance learning.๐Ÿ’ป

Thanks, Mrs H

๐Ÿคฉ Primary 2 – week beginning 22.8.22

Happy Monday,

โ—Please remember to return the annual data letters, milk letters and flu letters ASAP.

โœ๏ธIn Literacy we will be recapping writing stories with a beginning, middle and end, with a joining word and capital letters and full stops.ย  We are also revising key words and books previously read in order to regroup readers for the term. Please return book bags if you have not already done so.

๐Ÿ”ขIn Numeracy we are identifying numbers to 100, looking back to numbers before, after and in between.ย  We are also counting to a number off the decade from a random number. e.g. count from 27 to 48ย  These oral activities would be useful to practise regularly at home.

We have also been practising using this game to find number in between (to 100)

Primary 2 Homework and updates 26.4.22

Hello!

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter break! It’s been lovely to hear all their stories and see their smiling faces.

From now, the homework will be posted every Tuesday on google classroom. This usually pops up on the chrome books as they are started but if any children are unsure how to access it I can demonstrate this for them in class. Homework can be handed in either by uploading a picture/file to google classroom or by handing in a paper copy on a Monday.

I will also post our weekly newsletter on google classroom every Friday. New reading books will go home as usual on Tuesdays and will be collected in every Monday. We do read in class most days so please can these come into school every day in their school bags.

Thank you for all your support,

Mrs Lynch
