Primary 2 Newsletter Jan – Mar 2019
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.
This term we will be continuing our hard work across all disciplines and learning some exciting new topics. These are detailed below:
This term we will be focussing on time (o’clock, half past and quarter past using digital and analogue clocks) addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and information handling. Please continue to support your child with their learning at home.
Please check reading records to see the days your child will be reading in class. Please continue to hear your child read and sign their reading records.
Spelling homework will be given on a Tuesday. Your child will bring home a list of activities you can do together to help them practice spelling. These should be completed by Friday.
In writing this term we will be focussing on adjectives and starting our sentences in differences in different ways. We continue to focus on punctuating our sentences correctly.
Science & Technology
This term we are learning about materials as part of our Homes and Houses topic. We will be investigating the properties of different materials, particularly those used in the construction industry. We are also learning about different types of house over the years and hope to collect information about the types of housing around school. If anyone in the family is /or knows an architect, builder, joiner or electrician we would love to have them speak with the class.
We will be preparing and eating food to help us learn more about a balanced diet and how food helps our bodies. Each week a group of children will help to prepare/cook different foods to share with the class. Please let me know if your child has any dietary needs or allergies. If you would like to come in and help the children prepare food please let me know.
We will be regularly ‘Tweeting’ our learning in class. Please check our page for news.
Please ensure your child bring waterproof clothing and shoes/boots to school so they can enjoy playing outside in all weather. Before coming into class children are encouraged to change into their gym shoes.
Please ensure your child’s school uniform has their name clearly marked to avoid too many lost jumpers!
