We had another fantastic and very busy week in Primary 2/1 last week.
In primary 1 we have now learned the letters s,a,t,i and this week we’ll be learning n and p. Please help your child by asking them to think of things which start with these letters or say words beginning with these sounds and ask them to identify the first letter. They should be saying the sound that the letter says rather than the name of the letter. For example ‘ah’ rather than ‘ay’ for ‘a’. In numeracy we were consolidating our understanding of the numbers 1-5 which involved practising writing the numbers and making them in lots of ways with blocks, 10 frames and rekenreks.
In primary 2 we have been focussing on the sound ‘ch’ and spelling words which include ‘ch’. This week we are working on the ‘th’ sound. It would be great if you could ask your child to tell you words they know with these sounds in them or say words to them and ask them if they include a ‘th’, ‘ch’ or ‘sh’ (which they have also learned). In numeracy we are consolidating our understanding of the numbers to 20 and beyond, learning to write them and make them using 10 frames and rekenreks. At home, it would be great if you could help your child by counting forwards and backwards to 20 and beyond with them.
In music we’ve been having great fun with Mr Shanks who has been teaching us how to keep a steady beat using instruments.
The children asked for our house play corner to be turned into a supermarket and so it is now a supermarket with a cafe! The children love pretending to shop and to serve each other their meals in the cafe.
Homework: We will give home reading books on Monday 28th September and will use the blog to communicate homework tasks from that week too.
PE: Outdoor PE is on a Tuesday and Wednesday. The children have all been wearing PE kit on those days so thank you very much.
We are really looking forward to an exciting week in P2/1. Please remember that next Monday and Tuesday are holidays.
Thanks again for all your support.
