P2 Homework W/B 12.9.16

Spelling – List 3 ‘th’

Reading – as normal – please check green homework bags daily for updates. I will send home a slip indicating when your child will usually have reading in class.

Numeracy – ‘Learn-It’ cards will be sent home on Wednesday to practise. Info to follow.

Topic‘Harvest’ continued – This week we will study and dissect some wheat straight from a field; look at the ‘wheat to bread journey’; make drop scones; study the fable ‘The Little Red Hen’ in literacy and also read and illustrate a harvest poem. Last week, the children looked at barley and reconstructed this from paper! ( I apologise for the confusion when I told the children it was wheat! Oops!)

Learning Powers – Children will discuss which Learning Powers they’ll use in their lessons. These help the children to have a positive mind set and a ‘can do’ attitude.

  • Concentrate
  • Have a go
  • Never give up
  • Be curious
  • Be imaginative
  • Co-operate
  • Enjoy learning

Other news….

Remember that it is the September break next weekend so no school on Friday or the following Monday. On Tuesday 20th, the school photographer will be in to take individual pictures.

PE– is on Tuesdays and Thursdays – can girls with longer hair please have this tied back for gym.

Show and Tell Rota – P2 LOVE Show and Tell and the demand for it is overwhelming!! I have had to make a rota to ensure all pupils get a turn. This rota covers two weeks so your child will only have one day every fortnight I’m afraid. Children are encouraged to bring in items of interest, perhaps topic related or to do with hobbies or achievements. Children do not have to do this- it is optional but those who do, should prepare something interesting to tell the class about their item. Here is the rota- child’s initials used, boys in bold. Week One starts tomorrow, Monday 12th.
