Primary 2 Newsletter, January 2024
PE - the class continue to have has PE on a Wednesday and Thursday this term. Please send your child’s gym bag in on a Wednesday and ensure that your child has different gym shoes from their outdoor shoes. On Thursday we have P.E first thing in the morning, so please send your child in their P.E kit with school clothes to change into afterwards. In addition, the school follows the ‘Daily Mile’ programme to encourage outside activity every day. Please send your child prepared for all weathers.
Monday: Gaelic - the class has a Gaelic lesson once a week with our Gaelic Miss McPhee.
Music with Mr Webber
Friday Fun 31 (the children have the opportunity to choose different activities and mix
with the P1s and P3s).
Picking up /dropping off - please let me know if someone other than Mum or Dad is going to be picking up your child. Thank you.
Homework – Keep looking at Seesaw for homework and also keep practising reading books and flashcards.
School Uniform - please ensure your all your child’s belongings are clearly marked with their name to avoid too many lost jumpers, shoes, lunch tubs etc!
In this cold and variable weather please ensure your child brings waterproof clothing and shoes/boots to school so they can enjoy playing outside. It’s always handy to have a pair of inside shoes/gym shoes too, so that if they get wet feet at playtime, they have something to change into. It would be great if you could leave a pair of gym shoes at school for children to use as spares.
Learning in Primary 2
Read Write Inc is the scheme we are following this year to cover phonics, reading and tools for writing.
Numeracy - we will continue to focus on Numbers to 100, as well as data handling, fractions, measure and addition and subtraction.
Topic – We started the term finding out about World Religion Day in Preparation for our presentation at assembly. We learned that we should accept and respect all of humanity, despite religious beliefs.
This term, we are going to take part in the RSPB Big School Birdwatch, so we will be learning about birds. The children have also expressed an interest in inventors, so we will be having a look at some Scottish inventors.
