Primary 2C

Primary 2C

Welcome back to a new school year. The children have all settled quickly to the routines of Primary two and are looking forward to all the new learning experiences planned for the year ahead.

Numeracy

We have been visiting many of the numeracy and maths concepts introduced in primary 1 and are now looking forward to extending that knowledge.  Topics will include addition and subtraction to twenty, including money, recognising coins, calculating change, interpreting data from a graph, 2D and 3D shape, telling time to the half hour with durations.

Literacy

In reading, we will continue with the story world books.  As your child reads to you for homework, please encourage them to read with fluency and expression as this will help to promote their confidence as readers.  Asking children questions related to the story helps to develop their understanding. Please also revise over and over words, common words and sounds as this will help the children with both reading and writing.

Other

Our topics this year will be, Our Local Area, The Senses, Rainforest and a history topic. Children are always eager to bring in items related to their topic into school and enjoy sharing and discussing them with their peers. Please encourage children to bring these in but do not send fragile or expensive items in as accidents can happen!

Our PE days are Monday and Thursday.  Pupils should bring their kit on Mondays and take it home on Friday.
