P2 Take Over the Hub!

posted 15 Oct 2017, 23:48 by Middle Years Teacher 2   [ updated 15 Oct 2017, 23:48 ]

We enjoyed a successful and educational afternoon at the Hub where we became mini-chefs and made our own own pizzas with the kind assistance of Dima, one of the master chefs there. We did our best to keep our toppings healthy and found out that although there are many steps to making a pizza, it is easy and fun with the right support. Thanks also to Miss Tanya, Elizabeth and Sandra who accompanied us and gave all the support we need.

Trip to the Hub planned for Monday 16th October

Oh what excitement awaits the P2 children for this coming Monday. We will go to the Hub to make pizzas! This will be part of our Exit Point for the unit, We Are What We Eat. And naturally this excitement will be shared with the parents as they will get a chance to eat the pizzas that their children prepared! During this time, the children should discuss the healthy toppings they chose by ensuring that their pizza comes from different food groups. A letter will go home today with the relevant information.

Week Beginning 9th October

Please find below the learning for the week ahead:

Literacy
We will be continuing our Poetry unit based on songs and repetitive poems. Our learning focus will be:
  • Creating lists of what they like and do not like
  • Looking at the features of poetry such as rhyme and that lines normally begin with capital letters
  • Performing poetry in an entertaining way so as to keep the interest of the audience
  • Learning about the a-e digraph
Maths
Our new focus will be on Sequences and Shapes. During this, we will be learning the following:
  • Count to 100 in ones and tens from zero. 
  • Count on/back starting from any number up to 20. 
  • Order numbers to 20 on a track, then a beaded line.
  •  Mark on numbers just before and after 5, 10, 15, and 20.
  •  Compare two numbers less than 20: say which is more or less.
  •  Recognise fractions of shapes ½ and ¼.
IPC
We will continue our unit, We are What We Eat. This week we will take our Technology designs for the cover of our pizzas boxes and actually make a real pizza box adding our design to the front. This will help us to get ready for our trip to the Hub on the 16th October where we will actually get to make pizza! We will also revisit previous learning looking at language to do with our Geography learning such as climate, weather and zone.

Symmetry in P2

posted 3 Oct 2017, 23:30 by Middle Years Teacher 2   [ updated 3 Oct 2017, 23:31 ]

The P2 children had fun on a sunny afternoon cutting and colouring to show symmetry linked to learning in maths. They are trying hard with their learning and their resilience was shown by the fact that they were nearly all there at the Zima Fun Run on the Saturday - the only absentees were due to illness and being on holiday. What a great class of triers they are!

Library Books

posted 17 Sep 2017, 20:16 by Primary 2 Teacher   [ updated 17 Sep 2017, 20:16 ]

Today the system we use to check out the library books went down after the first child checked theirs out. The children have returned their books today and will hopefully get to take 2 more home tomorrow.

Thank you for your understanding.

P2 have had a great first 'full' week and been very busy getting used to the new routines and starting our learning in each area. There are some pictures attached below, apologies that most are on the side but you can't rotate them so I must remember to hold the i-pad a certain way when taking the pictures. 


This coming week we will start our new unit in IPC, 'We Are What We Eat'. We will have our first full library session on Monday so please remember to send in your child's blue book bag (this should come to school every day).



Literacy - Lists, Labels and Signs'

-Writing sentences about our weekend news. 
-Thinking of an alternative ending to a story.
-Forming letters correctly.
-Writing labels to match pictures.
-Ordering the letters of the alphabet (saying what comes after each letter - with an alphabet strip for support).

Maths - Addition

-Making 'teen' numbers by adding 10. 
-Partitioning 'teen' numbers.

Entry Point - On Monday the children will have a surprise start to the day to introduce the new unit. Ask your child after school to tell you all about it.

Knowledge Harvest - Each child will share what they know about certain aspects of the unit and the teacher will record what they say. We will use this to look back at at the end of the unit to see if their thinking has changed.




Have a great weekend!
