Welcome to Primary Two
We will have a travel agent in the playroom to book those exciting holidays!
We learn that homes give us shelter. We look at different human homes and think about some of the materials we use in our homes. We also start to think about where animals might live. We look at gardens and discover that lots of creatures make their homes in our gardens.
We think about some of the common minibeasts and find out where they live, what they eat and how they grow.
We have a house corner and a garden shop in the playroom as well as all the usual art activities.
Throughout P2 we cover different topics in maths including money, weight, shape, capacity and time. P2 children will be practising counting to 50, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We learn how to add and subtract, and learn the difference between odd and even numbers. Children will also be encouraged to complete different problem solving activities throughout the year.
In literacy, we build on our phonics knowledge from P2 and develop this through the Linguistic Phonic programme. There are opportunities to read together as a class or in smaller reading groups. We encourage our children to write independently, sounding out words using our phonics knowledge.
