Welcome back and Happy New Year to you all!
This new term is packed with various events and fun learning opportunities. Over the next few weeks, there’ll be a ‘Scottish’ feel to it as we study our culture linked to Burns Day. We’ll continue our topic on electricity and link this in with the toys and games played with over the festive period. We’ll continue to study a new sound each week but will also take time to revise the sounds learned so far in P2. Reading will continue with Oxford Reading Tree at its core but there will be opportunities for reading some Scottish poetry and fiction. There will be some maths/numeracy homework each week from now on so look out for this.
Just a reminder that every pupil should have a change of indoor shoes, a full PE kit and all items of clothing clearly labelled. PE should return to the normal days of Tuesday and Thursday.
Homework set should be completed in time and handed in ( spelling should be done for Friday mornings but numeracy/ reading will have different dates set). It’s very important to establish a good homework routine in P2 to set children up for later years. We try our best to ensure that homework is relevant, meaningful, manageable and not too onerous! It also provides a link between home and school and informs you as to what is being focused on each week.
Homework this week:
Spelling – (unless otherwise notified) – List 17 Magic ‘e’ – u-e .
Reading – We’ll pick up where we left off before Christmas. Check reading bags daily for updates.
Maths – Time – Calendar Months – simply learn the months in order. It’s useful to learn the months in blocks of three and then build them up. So, January/February/March……April/May/June……July/August/September….. October/November/December. …….and then we’ll learn them in French!
Thanks, as always, for your support,
