P2 Homework w.b. 25.3.19

We have a busy week planned this week!

The P1 and P2 class are going to be very busy getting themselves prepared for the assembly at the end of the week! There was a letter that went out on Thursday about this, apologises that those with speaking parts have not had their lines yet, these will be handed to them on Monday. If you have costumes for your child/any other items of clothing that would be suitable for the other characters, could you please hand them in from Monday onwards. This way Miss Maley and I have enough time to see what else we need to buy. The children will be performing their assembly to the parents on MONDAY 1st APRIL at 9:30am and you are allowed a maximum of 2 guests per child. 

The children are continuing with their rugby sessions on Monday afternoon and on Wednesday we are spending the afternoon with the nursery doing some gardening.

Homework for this week:

Reading: Check your child’s green reading record for the pages. Please sign or tick your child’s reading record to indicate that the homework has been done!

Spelling: We are learning the ‘ow’ sound which is found in words like snow, glow, pillow. This weeks list will contain words with this sound.

Literacy: The past couple of weeks we have been revisiting capital letters and full stops as I have noticed we need a bit more practise with this. This week I will be sending home a ‘fix the sentence’ worksheet. It will contain sentences that might be jumbled up as well as having no capital letters and full stops and the children have to fix the mistakes. This will be due back the following Monday.

Thank you,

Miss Lauren Waller

Hi all,

We had a lovely day on Friday seeing all of the children dressed up as Disney characters or in red for Comic relief!

On Friday 29th March, P1 and P2 will be doing a Fairyland assembly for the school, we are going to do this for the parents too. Next week we will be deciding the parts and begin practising! A letter detailing the date of the assembly for parents and the parts will go out at the beginning of next week too – it will be in your child’s book bag.

P2 will also begin their rugby sessions on Monday, they will be getting rugby every Monday afternoon for 3 weeks. Please ensure your child has a full P.E. kit so they can take part!

Homework for this week: 

Spelling: We are learning the ‘y’ sound so the the spelling list will contain words with this sound and tricky words.

Reading: Please check your child’s green reading record for the pages to be read that night. If possible, could you please sign or tick your child’s reading record for that night just so I can check that reading has been completed. It is so important that reading homework is completed every night, as the more children read the more fluent and confident they become. Again, children are more than welcome to bring in their own books for personal reading time or story time.

Numeracy: The last 2 weeks we have been focusing on missing addend and subtrahend sums. These are sums with missing numbers, for example, 13 – _ = 10. The children have been learning to use a number line to work out the answer. This week I will be sending out a mixed sheet with missing addend and subtrahend questions, it will be due back in on the following Monday.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller

Hello,

Apologies that this post is being uploaded later than usual. As the phonics worksheet went out late last week, I have decided only to give the children reading and spelling homework this week. Next week we will go back to having an additional task for them to complete.

Please check that your child has indoor and outdoor shoes for everyday and a full PE kit. 

Homework for this week:

Reading: Pages to be read that night are written in your child’s green reading record. Please sign your name beside the pages to be read that night so I can check that reading has been done.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘igh’ sound, this is in words such as bright, light, fright etc. Spelling lists will contain words with this sound and tricky words.

Hope you are having a lovely week,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b. 4.3.19

March already, can you believe it?!?

We are beginning our Fairyland topic this coming week which will be very, very exciting! The friendly dragon may have left something for the children on Monday…

This term we are also focusing on having a growth mindset! It is really important that children are able to value and learn from their mistakes as this will expand their learning and perseverance.

We begin our sessions of rugby tomorrow afternoon – please make sure that your child has indoor/gym shoes and a full p.e kit to take part.

Homework for this week:

Reading: Please check your child’s green reading records for the pages to be read for that night. I can’t emphasise how important it is for the children to be doing their reading homework. The more children read the wider their vocabulary will become!

Spelling: This week is the “ea” sound, such as head, ready and instead. Please encourage your child to write these words in cursive handwriting if they feel ready.

Phonics: The children will have a phonics worksheet to complete, it has a mixture of sounds on it. As this is an additional task, it does not have to be handed in until the following Monday.

Thank you,

Miss Lauren Waller

 

P2 Homework w.b. 25.2.19

Hello!

Well, we had such a fun science week! We had our ‘Ready, Teddy, Go!’ workshop on Monday where we learned all about forces. Then we have been working in teams for our STEM activities – designing an umbrella and an egg basket from a range of materials. P1 and P2 were put into groups on Wednesday and were given a range of materials to choose from to make an egg basket that would transport mini eggs safely down a zip line – this was A LOT of fun! To end the week, we created our own volcanoes on Friday and it was very exciting when the ‘lava’ overflowed everywhere.

We will be continuing to look at energy and electricity next week. Additionally, P1/2 will be doing a joint topic ‘Fairyland’ in the coming weeks.

Homework for the coming week:

Reading: Please check your child’s green reading record for the pages to be read that night. I am looking to incorporate more independent reading time in the class, so children are more than welcome to bring their own books in for this. If anyone has any pre-loved magazines/comics etc. that they no longer need then P2 would really appreciate these being added to the class library!

Spelling: This week we will be learning the ‘ay’ sound. The spelling list will contain words with this sound, for example, May, away, Monday. We are practising writing in cursive, please encourage your child to practise some of their words in cursive handwriting if they want to.

Maths: Children are continuing to learn about money with me and Mrs Wallace is moving onto learning about measure this term. This week the children will have a money worksheet to complete for homework. As this is an additional task the children will have until Monday to complete it. If you wish to do this over the weekend, please could you take it out of your child’s bookbag as I leave them in school on Friday so I can organize homework for the following week. Thank you.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend and I will see you on Monday!

Miss Lauren Waller

Hi all,

I hope you had a fun and restful holiday and are ready to return for the new week! We are learning lots of fun things this week as it is SCIENCE WEEK!

This morning (Monday), the children have a science workshop and we will be following this on throughout the week through learning about energy and electricity.

Homework for this week; 

Reading: Every group is receiving a new book so please check your child’s green reading records for the pages. Please encourage your child to read a wide variety of genres, this can be anything from non-fiction to joke books! If they have a book they are really enjoying then they can bring it into school to read during calm time.

Spelling: We are learning no new sounds this week, instead we will be revising all of the ones we have been learning in P2. However, the children will receive a spelling list of the days of the week to practise.

Writing: Before the holidays, the children were learning about instructional writing and we wrote a recipe for making a jam sandwich. For Monday, the children have their own recipe template and they can make up their own recipe for something or can write one that they know works. We might try and make some of the creations next week!

Thank you so much for all of your support so far in P2. I hope you all have a lovely week,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b 4.2.19

Hi all,

Parents evening is this week, Wednesday 6th (5:30-8:30) and Thursday 7th (3:30-5:30). Please return your slip if you have not already, they were put into children’s bookbags. If you are unable to make the appointment, then please let the school office know and they can sort something for you.

Homework for this week:

Reading: All of the reading groups have moved up a stage, so the books may be a little more challenging, to begin with, but they are all ready for the move up. Please check your child’s green reading record for the pages they have to read that night.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘wh’ sound, for example, whisper and whale. The spelling list this week contains words with this sound and tricky words.

After the holidays, I will alternate each week between numeracy, phonics and writing homework. For example, one week will be a writing task and the next week will be a phonics task etc. With this extra task, the children will have until the following Monday to complete it.

Just a reminder that we break up for the holidays this Friday 8th February at the normal time, 12:25pm.

Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday and Thursday evening,

Miss Lauren Waller

Hi all,

All the children received their parent appointment slips last week, please check  your child’s book bag for these slips.

Homework for this week;

Spelling: This is our last week of bossy ‘e’ and the sound is u_e. The spelling list this week will contain this sound and tricky words. Remember that children can practise these in a number of ways – writing them in pencil or paint, using magnetic letters to make them or even writing silly sentences with them!

Reading: Please check your child’s green reading record for these pages. Children may be moving up to the next stage in their books over the next few weeks.

Writing: The children wrote some lovely stories about what their favourite pet is last week. There will be another writing sheet sent out on Tuesday and can be returned on the following Monday. If your child is going to complete this over the weekend then I suggest it gets taken out of the book bag as I don’t send them home on a Friday. This weeks writing will be ‘If I were the teacher, I would be’. Please encourage your child to use cursive handwriting as we are practising to use this in class.

Thank you,

Miss Lauren Waller
