Primary 1/2 in Room 2 and Miss Vickers would like to welcome you to our Class Page. We hope you enjoy looking at what we have been learning.
The children in Room 2 have settled in well to their new classroom and have had a great start to Primary 1 and Primary 2. Information: We have gym on a Wednesday and a Friday and children should come to school wearing their gym kit on both days.
Achievements If your child has participated in an event or has been awarded a certificate, medal etc. out with school please remember to ask for a wider achievement form from the school office so that the achievement can be displayed on the wider achievement wall.
Literacy P1: The Primary 1's have been working closely with the Primary 1 children from Room 1 to learn nursery rhymes and have enjoyed taking part in lots of different activities linked to the rhymes. Some of the activities we have been doing so far are spotting rhyming words, listening for words that start with the same sound, sequencing the rhyme. We have also been practising writing our names. P2: The Primary 2 children have been enjoying telling the story of the Gingerbread Man using a story map to help. We are now working on making our own story maps to tell our own version of this story. We are going to write our own Gingerbread stories and share them with others.
Numeracy P1: We have been working with the children from Room 1 to sort toys into different groups based on colour and size. We have been exploring signs and symbols and looking for different signs around the school. We have also been exploring shapes, going on shape hunts and making our own shape pictures. We are looking forward to exploring the numbers 0-10. P2: We have been sorting information using lots of different charts: Pictographs, Block Graphs, Tally Charts, Venn Diagrams and Carroll Diagrams. We are now looking forward to measuring the length, weight and capacity of different objects.
HWB This term we will be focusing on the topic ‘Safe’ in Health and Wellbeing. We have been learning about road safety and how to keep our bodies safe through good hand hygiene. We will also be learning about how to stay safe in the dark winter nights and learning about firework safety.
In PE we will be focussing on developing our ball skills and learning how to control a ball with our hands and our feet. We will be throwing, catching, shooting, dribbling and kicking a ball in different ways. Please note for the safety of all pupils it is important that your child has secure fitting, non-slippery indoor shoes and removes all jewellery for these sessions. Loose and/or long hair should also be tied back.
Ideas to support homework P1: Practise name writing, read stories together, talk about words that rhyme, words that start with the same sound, drawing detailed pictures and colouring in, cutting out pictures. More information will be provided at the P1 information evening which will take place later this term.
P2: Practise adding to make 10, counting in 1's, 2's and 10's, practise reading and writing the common words noted in homework diary, continue to practise sorting information using the charts listed above.
