Welcome to P2!

Welcome to P2.  Find out what we have been up to in Literacy, Numeracy and World Around Us!

Autumn Term Literacy

In Literacy we have been doing lots of phonic and word work. We have enjoyed listening to many fiction and non-fiction stories which are all related to our topics.  We have completed many written pieces, writing on different formats and in our books.  We have completed some factual writing, including nocturnal animals and where different materials come from.  We have written all about the dark after we read ‘The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark’ and did some group writing retelling the ‘Owl Babies’.  We wrote Thank You letters to the Shoemaker and his wife to say thank you for the elves’ lovely new clothes! 

 

Autumn Term Numeracy

In Numeracy this term we have been doing lots of number work and ordering and writing numbers. We have been adding using different methods and games and we are all really good at it!  We play games with dice and Numicon and we have been learning all about shape.  We have been sorting nocturnal animals and people who work at night into different categories and have also been learning about length.  We have been measuring different items around the classroom and using Sammy snake and Numicon shapes and recording onto tables.

Autumn Term WAU

This term in Primary 2 we have been learning about road safety and our first topic ‘Out After dark’. We learned all about nocturnal animals, people who are out and about at night and sources of light.  Caolan from Causeway Coast and Glens knows lots about nocturnal animals and he came in and talked to us about some of them and we were able to tell him some facts about hedgehogs.  We also watched lots of videos which were taken from a special night time camera which was set up in Newland.  Lots of nocturnal animals visit our Newland at night when we are tucked up in bed.  They are foxes, cats and a family of hedgehogs!
