P2 Homework w.b. 19.11.18

Hello!

******TRIP REMINDER*******

P2 are going to Deep Sea World tomorrow (Monday 19th November), all children who did not circle for a school packed lunch for the trip must remember to bring their own! Please ensure your child also has a snack, as we will be having this before we start our tour. If children are bringing money to spend in the gift shop can it please be put inside a clearly labelled wallet/purse. We are leaving school at 9:15am and will be arriving back for around 3pm. It’s going to be a really fun day!

This week is also Book Week, if your child has a book at home that they are enjoying, they can bring this in for the school’s DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) sessions that will be happening multiple times a day. If not, then we have a wide variety of books in our class library that they can pick from.

On Thursday 22nd November, it is ‘dress up as a character day’! Children are encouraged to come to school dressed up as their favourite book character. I can’t wait to see what they all dress up as – I’m still in the middle of making mine!

At the end of the week, a letter was put into your child’s bookbag about Nativity. It detailed who got what parts and asks if anyone could spare any help with costumes!

A week on Friday (Friday 30th November), it will be the Christmas Fair and P1/2 are looking for donations of any unwanted toys that are in good condition for the toy stall.

We also have the library on Friday, so just a gentle reminder that all school library books should be returned this week!

Homework:

Spelling: There will be no spelling homework this week as we will be having a revision week of the sounds we have learned so far.

Reading: Please check your child’s reading record for the pages that have to be read on that date. Spots will be given a worksheet to complete alongside their non-fiction book ‘Romans’.

Numeracy: Children will be given another BIG Maths numeracy worksheet to complete this week.

If you have any questions about anything happening this week then please don’t hesitate to catch me at the end of the day or drop me an email.

Thank you for all your support,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b 12.11.18

Hi all,

P2 are going on a trip to Deep Sea World on Monday 19th November, please complete and bring back the permission letter as soon as possible this week. It is going to be a really fun trip and a great way to end our Seashore Topic! Mrs Wallace, Mrs Tobyn and I are going with the children. There is a gift shop there and children can bring money to spend there if they wish – if so can it be put into a named wallet/purse please. If you have questions about the trip then please don’t hesitate to catch me at the end of the day or email; L.Waller@mgfl.net 

In addition to the children having P.E on a Tuesday and Thursday, they are going to have a 4 week block of athletics on a Monday afternoon. This is running from Monday 12th November until Monday 3rd December. Please ensure that your child has their full P.E kit so they can take part!

Well done to all the children in their fantastic auditions for the Nativity! All speaking parts have been allocated and these children have taken home their lines to learn, please support your child in learning these lines.

Last week, P2 started learning about money with Mrs Wallace so we have created a shop area in the atrium for them to explore this through play. In addition, please encourage the exposure to money at home, maybe through buying something at the shop or counting coins at home.

Homework

Reading: Check your child’s green reading record for the pages to be read each day. Alongside this, please encourage your child to read a variety of other books to help their reading become stronger. Some groups will have non-fiction books starting this week, they will also have a worksheet to complete alongside it.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘ss/zz’ sound. Therefore their spelling list will contain these sounds and tricky words.

Numeracy: There will be another numeracy worksheet for the children to complete, it will be the same layout as the one last week, including a variety of questions.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b 5.11.18

Hello,

The children have their flu vaccinations tomorrow, Monday 5th November.

Also, Nativity will kickstart tomorrow with some auditions! The children will have the opportunity to audition for a speaking part in the Nativity. We will also begin learning the songs this week, too.

Homework for this week:

Reading: Please check your child’s green reading record for the pages.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘ll’ sound, therefore the spelling list will contain words with this sound.

Numeracy: Please complete the BIG Maths worksheet that is in your child’s bookbag. It contains a variety of numeracy questions (halving, addition, and subtraction).

Thank you,

Miss Lauren Waller

 

P2 Homework w.b 29.10.18

Hi all,

Just a gentle reminder that your child should be bringing their book bag to school every day so they have their reading books, and we can put any letters etc in them.

This week I will be going over the children’s keywords for their reading stage (these were the words that were sent home last week). Therefore, children may come home with a new stage book next week.

Homework for this week:

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘ff’ sound, therefore their spelling list will have words containing this sound. Please support your child in learning these by writing them into their spelling jotter and practising other activities that are suggested in their jotter.

Reading: Reading pages will be written into their reading records. I will also be putting in a reading strategy bookmark into the children’s book bags. We have tried most of these strategies during our reading groups, so children should be familiar with them. These strategies can be used when the children are stuck with a word in their book. (For example, Chunky Monkey – split the word into manageable chunks and then blend together, flat –  fl-at).

From next week onwards, the children will also be given a numeracy task to complete each week.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b 1/10/18

Hi all,

Happy October, I can’t believe how quickly time is flying by!

A massive thank you to everyone who came along on Friday to our cake morning, we raised a total of £37 for Macmillian Cancer Support! The children had a lot of fun making and eating the cakes!

On Monday (1st October) the children have a 30-minute Judo Taster at 11am.

Parent appointment slips were put into the children’s bookbags on Friday (28th) – if you have not received one then please let me know and I will get a new one to you. The children were also given their seashore talk letter on Thursday, again, if you do not have one then please let me know.

Here is the homework for this week:

Reading: Please complete the pages that are written in your child’s green reading record for that day.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘ar’ sound and this will be the next list of words they have to practise.

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller

 

 

 

P2 Homework w/b 24/9/18

Hi all,

This Friday (28th) is Macmillan Coffee Morning so on Thursday afternoon, the children will be making and decorating cakes for this. I would like to invite you to join P2 in their coffee morning on Friday from 12pm. You are all welcome to come in from 12pm until the end of the day at 12:25pm for some cake! I will pop a reminder about it on the door and any questions please catch me at the end of the day to ask!

Just a gentle reminder to bring filled parent evening slips back as I will be organising appointments later this week.

Here is the homework for this week.

Reading: Please complete the pages written in the reading records.

Spelling: This week we will be learning the “qu” sound. This is the next list in their spelling jotters to practise.

Also, I am going to put a letter in the children’s book bags on Tuesday about topic homework, the children will be asked to prepare a talk on their chosen seashore animal. The letter will explain this in more detail.

Thank you,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b 17/9/18

Apologises that the homework update is a little late in being posted this week.

For this week, the children will also have numeracy homework in their book bags – this has also to be completed for Friday and will be handed out today (Wednesday).

Reading: Please complete the pages written inside your child’s reading record.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘ng’ sound, this should be the next list in your child’s jotter. Along with writing their spelling words in their jotter, children can also practise their words in bubbles, sand etc – to make learning them more fun and engaging! (In class, we like to use whiteboards and play dough!)

Numeracy – For homework, they have a worksheet that has various questions on it – e.g. half of 8 is. Please complete this for Friday! 

On days when there is no  homework please encourage your child to read something that they enjoy, so they are still gaining this reading practice.

Thank you,

Miss Lauren Waller

 

 

 

 

P2 Homework w/c 3/9/18

Welcome back!

I hope everyone has had a lovely summer and is feeling ready for the new school year. Apologies, for not putting the P2 homework on the website last week, but from now on I will post it every Sunday evening in time for it being handed out on Tuesday.

Homework

Homework will be given out every Tuesday and should be handed in on Friday. Some weeks there may be tasks that will require more time, but I will ensure that I let you know this in advance. In your child’s book bag there is a reading record which I will write their reading homework in and a spelling jotter for them to complete their spelling homework in.

Reading – Reading homework will be every night (Tues, Wed and Thurs) and I will write the pages that have to be read in their records. Sometimes there may be activities and key words to go along with their books too.

Spelling – There will be a new spelling list every week and inside the spelling jotters I have added a list of the different ways that the children could practice their words (for example, look, cover, write, check or writing them in bubble writing). Do feel free to come up with your own ideas too! This week the spelling list will be  ‘ch’ words.

Primary 2 really enjoy reading comics/magazines so I was wondering if anyone had any pre-loved ones that they would be happy to donate to our class library. It would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your support,

Miss Waller
