P2 Homework w.b. 17.6.19

*************REMINDER FOR TRIP***************

We are going to Butterfly and Insect World on Thursday 20th June, please ensure your child has a packed lunch with them, if you opted out of a school packed lunch. Your child can bring money to spend in the gift shop but please put this in a clearly named purse/wallet with a maximum of £5. 

This will be the last week of homework and on Friday 21st June it will be ‘Meet The Teacher’ where pupils will meet their new teacher for the next term.

Homework for this week:

Reading: Pages to be read have been written in your child’s green reading record.

Spelling: We are learning the last two sounds this week, which are ‘au’ (haul) and ‘aw’ (raw). As before I have put both spelling lists in their jotters but your child can choose to put one or both in their spelling jotter.

Tomorrow (Monday 17th June) I will send home the class photo order form in your child’s book bag, apologies that I did not send it out on Friday.

Thank you all so much for all of your support this year.

Hi all,

             ***********TRIP INFORMATION***********

As we are learning all about ‘Minibeasts’ this term we are going on a trip to Butterfly and Insect World on Thursday 20th June! The letter went out last week and please could all letters and payments be made/returned by Monday 17th June. Myself, Mrs Tobyn and Jenny Lavin will be on the trip with the children. There is a gift shop, so children can bring some money to spend in there, if they wish. Please ensure this is put in a clearly labelled purse/wallet and is no more than £5. 

Homework this week:

Reading: Most groups have moved up a stage in their books, so please ensure reading is completed every night to build confidence with new words. All pages have been written in your child’s green reading record. If it is easier for your child to do reading at the weekend, then please keep the book at home on Thursday evening and bring it back with your child on Monday. I understand family life is very busy and this may be the best time for some to do reading.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘ir’ (dirt) and ‘ur’ (fur) sounds. I have sent home both spelling lists but please only complete one in the jotter and ensure your child practises reading both lists.

Maths: We are moving on to 2D and 3D shapes next week, so I will send home a worksheet in line with this. This will be due back in on Friday.

It was lovely to see some of you at the drop in on Thursday evening! Please never hesitate to email me or catch me at the end of the day if you have any questions!

Can you believe that it is June already?! Only four weeks of term left!

Class photos are being taken on Monday 3rd June, please ensure your child dresses in full school uniform.

Primary 2 had so much fun last week, massive thanks to Mrs Duncan for organising it all and to everyone who came in to deliver the taster sessions. Hopefully the children have found something new they would like to try!

We performed our assembly a week ago to the school but we are going to put a performance on for parents/family members on Wednesday 5th June. The assembly is around 10 minutes long and the performance will just be in the classroom. Please arrive for 2:50 and only 2 guests per child so we can squeeze everyone in! Once we are finished the performance you can collect your child for home.

I have arranged one final trip to Butterfly and Insect World on Thursday 20th June. This is to fit in with our ‘Minibeasts’ topic. I am awaiting confirmation from the bus company which should come through next week, once I have this I will send letters out ASAP.

Reports will be sent out on Wednesday 5th June and the parent drop in session is Thursday 6th June 3:30 – 5pm.

Homework for this week:

Reading: Please ensure your child is reading their book every night, this supports them in building confidence and fluency. Pages to be read are written in your child’s green reading record.

Spelling: This week the list will contain words with the ‘er’ (herb, germ) sound.

Thank you for all your support this term,

Miss Lauren Waller

 

 

 

 

 

 

P2 Homework w.b. 27.5.19

Hi all,

It’s Health Week this week and Mrs Duncan has planned lots of fun activities for the children to take part in this week. Children can wear sports clothing all week but no football strips or team colours please. Please ensure your child brings a water bottle all week too.

Sports Day is Monday afternoon 1pm – 3:15pm and hopefully the weather stays nice so we can have it outside. If the weather permits, then spectators are more than welcome.

Every morning there is going to be a whole school warm up at 8:50am. 

Tuesday – We have taster sessions in Taekwondo, Dance, Movement to Music and Meditation.

Wednesday – We have a session in Karate, a Health Talk and then the whole school Fun Run (2pm – 3:15pm).

Thursday – There is the Bike Breakfast at 8:30am, children can bike or scoot to school and have breakfast.

Friday – Two pupils (EL/CF) will be showing their gymnastic and football skills at the Sports Showcase. Then the Summer Fair is at 11:30am.

It is going to be a very fun and busy week!!!

Homework for this week:

Reading: All the pages to be read have been written in your child’s green reading record.

Spelling: We didn’t get a chance to cover the ‘al’ (also) sound last week, so will be covering that sound this week. We will also be learning the ‘nk’ (ink) sound, so I will send home the spelling list for this.

Thank you,

Miss Lauren Waller

 

P2 Homework w.b. 20.5.19

Hi all,

Hope you have all had a chance to enjoy the wonderful weather while it lasted!

P2 have started their new ‘Minibeasts’ topic for the next few weeks and will be doing an assembly on Friday for only the school. As we have learned about the butterfly life-cycle, we have decided to retell the story of ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’. Children who receive speaking parts will take their lines home on Tuesday. Please support your child in learning these lines with lots of expression and volume (our voices have to be heard all the way to the back of the hall!).

Just a reminder that homework is now Monday – Friday as I am in class on a Monday to distribute it.

Homework for this week:

Reading: All groups have finished with their non-fiction text and are back onto The Magic Key books. Pages to be read have been written in your child’s green reading record.

Spelling: As I mentioned last week, we will be learning two sounds each week until summer. This coming week we are learning ‘or’ (corn, born) and ‘al’ (also). The two spelling lists have been put into spelling jotters but please don’t feel like you have to do both. Make sure your child reads and becomes familiar with the words on both of the lists but they only have to do one in their jotter.

Maths: We have been learning time, focusing on o’clock and half past on digital and analogue clocks. I will send home a time worksheet to be completed for Friday.

Thank you,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b. 13.5.19

Hello,

Just a little reminder that Monday 20th May is a holiday for pupils and a training day for staff.

Homework for this week:

Reading: All groups will be reading non-fiction books, we will be looking at the difference between non-fiction and fiction in class. The pages to be read are written in your child’s green reading record.

Spelling: As the weeks are flying by we will be leaning two sounds each week until the end of the term. I will put the two lists that go with these sounds in your child’s spelling jotter but there is no obligation to do both. Your child can choose one, do a mixture of words from both or they can do both, if they would like. The sounds we are learning this week are ‘oi’ (boil, coin) and ‘oy’ (toy, boy).

Literacy: As we will be reading non-fiction books this week, I will send home a worksheet that is tailored to each book to complete. This doesn’t have to be handed in until Friday.

Thanks,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b. 6.5.19

Hello,

Just a reminder that Monday (6th) is a holiday for staff and pupils, so school will resume on Tuesday 7th May. Also, Monday 20th May is a holiday for pupils and a training day for staff.

Apologies I did not send out the numeracy homework last week, was very busy with camp etc. I will send that out for next weeks homework instead!

Reading: Pages to be read will be written in your child’s green reading record. All groups will be moving on to non-fiction books within the coming weeks.

Spelling: We are learning the sound ‘ow’ as in clown, brown and crown. This weeks spelling list will have words with this sound and tricky words.

The last topics we will be covering this term will be ‘Loanhead Local Study’, ‘MiniBeasts’ and ‘Electricity’. I am hoping to squeeze a week long dinosaur topic too as the children have requested this!

I hope you all have a fab bank holiday weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b. 29.4.19

Hi all,

I hope you all had a lovely break and got a chance to enjoy the weather while it lasted. It has been so lovely to hear what all the children have been up to, it sounded like everyone had a very busy Easter!

I didn’t send any homework last week as we had a revision week and I wanted to assess the children’s reading. I will be taking the class full time now, so I plan on sending homework out on Monday for it to be returned on Friday. I am aware that family life can be very busy during the week so if you would like your child to have their reading book home for the weekend,  then please just either catch me at the end of the day or note it in your child’s reading record and I will make sure the book goes home on a Friday.

I am going to camp with Primary 5 this week (Wednesday – Friday) so Mrs Wallace and Miss Ramsay will be covering the class while I am away.

Homework for this week:

Reading: The pages to be read will be written in your child’s green reading record. Please could you sign your child’s reading record every night when you do reading. We are working a lot on expression and fluency in our reading this term.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘ou’ sound like in house, loud, flour. The children will have a list of words including this sound and some tricky words.

Numeracy: There will be a worksheet with a mix of different numeracy questions that we have covered this year (missing addend, doubles etc.). This is to be returned by Friday please.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller
