Welcome to P2A’s web page!
We are all settling in well to Primary 2! We have been getting on well with learning across the curriculum, and have been concentrating on building positive relationships with one another in our new class. Here you will find information about what have been covering in Term 1.
TOPIC / HEALTH AND WELLBEING
Our friend Buddy the bunny is not in a good way. He has toothache. He is tired and doesn’t eat enough healthy foods. He goes to bed late and doesn’t hop around much. He is a very unhealthy bunny. Our topic this term is Happy and Healthy. We have talked about the importance of teeth brushing, exercising and eating a balanced and nutritious diet. Our class have used what we have learned to help Buddy become healthy by giving him lots of advice and guidance! Also, as part of this topic, we are learning all about our bodies and its organs. Our physical health is so important, but so is our mental health and talking about our feelings. We are starting to use the Blob Tree to talk about how we feel at school and in the playground.
In Numeracy we will be working on addition and will start to learn about strategies for subtraction. We we will also be doing lots of number sequencing, counting forwards and backwards, sharing amounts into equal groups and generally developing mental maths strategies. We have been practising developing our counting on strategies and revising our number bonds to 10 and 20. Our topic in Maths is Money. We are learning how to count money and also about how we use it and keep it safe.
In Literacy, we have been revising our Block 2 words from P1. At the start of term we wrote some wonderful postcards all about our summer holidays. We are going to be really focusing on writing in full sentences, with a capital letter and full stop. We are learning to write instructions for hand washing and teeth brushing in relation to our Happy and Healthy topic. We have also written about our favourite exercise. Next, we will be learning how to write poems about Autumn.
In art, we have been using our knowledge of types of teeth to create 3D models of mouths. We also used cutting techniques to make bristles for our arty toothbrushes! Further linked to our Happy and Healthy topic we have used cotton buds to make skeletons on black paper. They are rather spooky, so watch out!!
Reading will take place from Monday to Thursday and previous books must be returned to school on Monday. All reading groups will be issued with a new book on Mondays.
Homework walls will be given out termly. Please help your child to colour a brick on the wall to show when they have completed a homework task.
P.E – Primary 2A has P.E on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please ensure your child comes to school with their P.E kit on those days.
If you have any concerns at any time, please approach me in the school playground and we can make an appointment to talk. I am here to help.
