Hi everyone,

We’re really looking forward to another fun week in P2/1!  Here is an update of what we have planned and also copies of the home learning grids.

Home Learning

The home learning grids for the next two weeks are attached below.

P1 9th November home learning                       P2 9th November home learning

Primary 1:

Language – our sounds this week are ‘g’ and ‘l’. We’ll be practising writing them and identifying words which begin with the sounds. In reading we will be continuing to learn strategies for reading words we don’t know and also making predictions about texts.

Numeracy – Last week we got on really well with counting two collections and adding them together. This week we will be using number lines to help us with addition.

Primary 2:

Language – our sound this week is ‘ck’ and we’ll be working with our magnetic boards to spell words using this sound.  In our writing we will also try to use some words which use our new sound.

Numeracy – We are continuing to work on our addition strategies and will be adding larger numbers. We will be playing lots of games and activities to help us with our addition.

‘The owl who was afraid of the dark’

We are looking forward to finding out about different types of owls and creating fact files about them this week. Our science will also link with our topic as we will be finding out why we have day and night.

Children in Need

On Friday 13th November we will be having a colourful dress down day and children can pay a donation of £1 to dress in colourful clothing. Children in Need are also holding a duck race. Children can pay 50p to choose one of the ducks which will be taking part in the race on Friday 13th.  This link has more details:  https://www.bbcchildreninneed.co.uk/fundraising/the-annual-duck-race-sweepstake-2020/
