Hi ๐Ÿค—everyone ๐Ÿค—, it is so hard to believe that we have reached the final week of our summer term!  What a crazy year it has been. 

 

This week I would encourage all P2 children to focus on their READING.  A fun, exciting and free way to enhance and develop these   skills is through our Reading Challenge! ๐Ÿ“š 

 

The Reading Agency and Libraries have announced their 2020 Reading Challenge!

 



This is a great opportunity to promote reading for children of all ages throughout the summer! Reading is such an important skill for all children and should feel fun and exciting! Therefore, we are asking you all to take part in 'The Silly Squad!'

'The Silly Squad' will focus on funny books, happiness and laughter! It will be run through a safe online platform which allows for exciting interactive reading experiences, including eBooks and audiobooks. There will be online activities, videos, quizzes, games and rewards to unlock along the way. Every child who completes their own Challenge will receive a downloadable certificate.

When creating an account, select Libraries NI as your local Library authority!

Hello  ๐Ÿค—Everyone๐Ÿค—

I hope you are all safe and well. Here is the focus for this week:

 

NUMERACY

Venn Diagrams - Watch the Power Points below and sort the shapes/sweets using the Venn Diagram.

 

 

LITERACY:

This week we are going to look at using the correct punctuation in sentences. We need the correct punctuation to ensure that our sentences make sense. For example:

       What is your name.   ๐Ÿ‘Ž

       What is your name?    /๐Ÿ‘

 

Watch the Power Point below and see if you can pop the correct punctuation.

Take a look at the sentences below and see if you can decide what is missing. ๐Ÿค” Think and ask yourself does it need a FULL STOP, EXCLAMATION (SHOUT) MARK or a QUESTION MARK?

 

 

Read the sentences above with your child. Ask them to work out the punctuation that is missing, after you/they could make up some of their own.

 

Have a great week, missing you all loads!

Take care and stay safe.

Write an ACROSTIC POEM using your friends name.  It would be great if you could write your poem about a friend in P2 to brighten each other's day! 

Send them to me and I will add them to our school Facebook page.

Here are some examples below:

 

 

NUMERACY:

This week I would like you to revise our MONEY topic. Firstly ensure you know all the coins, you were all very good at this in class ๐Ÿ‘.  Next, I would like you to look at the ice-cream cones, add the coins and enter the totals. Good luck!

GROW IN LOVE:

May is the month of Mary.  The Catholic  Church sets aside the entire month of May to honour Mary, Mother of God.  With your family say Mary's prayer 'The Hail Mary' and colour some of the May pictures below.

 

 

DATE: Monday 4th May

Morning ๐Ÿค— P2 ๐Ÿค—,

I hope everyone is safe and well! This week I would like you all to focus on the following areas:

LITERACY

This week I would like you all to focus on RECOUNT WRITING.  To do this you could record like a typical day of lockdown in your house. Remember FIRST, THEN, NEXT and FINALLY (see writing template ideas above)

You could start by writing about the morning, ie. Breakfast then reading, perhaps lunch and off for a family walk to the beach/golf course/picnic in the garden etc. Then for example end the story by writing about dinner and bedtime. Just an example, you get the idea! Just use your creative imaginations P2. Don't forget to add a lovely illustration to go with your story. 

Best of luck, I can't wait to read these masterpieces!

NUMERACY

The focus for this week is to have a go at finding numbers before and after.  This is a mental maths challenge for you all and can be adapted very easily depending on how good you are at it. 

Let's show an example: Tell me/write the number before/after: 17, 73, 104, 287. Stay on teen figures until you are confident then progress to doubles then hundreds. Write the less than 10:  90 = 80, 110 =100.

Our phonics focus this week is on 'ff' and 'ss'.  

huff, puff, cuff, cliff, stiff, off

hiss, kiss, miss, less, mess

Use the words above to write sentences or even make up a story using the ff and ss words.  For example:

"I walked along the path and suddenly heard a huff, a puff and a hiss coming from behind the cliff. What could it be? I decided the less I knew the better.  I'd rather not know.  I picked up my pace and hurried off to school before I missed registration."

WORLD AROUND US ~ ‘DAY AND NIGHT’:

We have been learning about nocturnal animals.  What things do we do at daytime and night ie. flying a kite, we can only do this during the day. We explored the solar system, the planets and the first moon landing. What is an Astronaut? What do they look like? Travel to space. What would you bring? Design your own rocket.

LITERACY

๐ŸทThe Three Little Pigs๐Ÿท

This week we have been focusing on the traditional story of 'The Three Little Pig's.  After reading the story we highlighted the main characters and events.  The children then got into role acting out the story for the rest of the class. Oh! such talented actors in our class! ๐Ÿท๐Ÿท๐Ÿท

NUMERACY

MONEY 

Over the next few weeks we will be working with money.  All the children are currently learning how to identify the coins and their value. We will be exploring different ways of making a total amount and working out what change is needed when items are purchased in our role play shop.

Money Bingo

Legomen Scientific Experiment

In P2 today we had great fun trying to free the Legomen from the great boulders of ice.  The challenge was to firstly predict what would be the quickest way to melt the ball of ice - salt, vinegar or using an ice-pick. 


 

๐ŸŽ‰HERE IS THE WINNING TEAM๐ŸŽ‰

They were the quickest to free their Lego Man using.....SALT!

NUMERACY

๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ“DATA HANDLING๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ

This term our new Numeracy topic is on Data Handling.  We began the topic with a fruit tasting and asked the children to select their favourite. We then collated the information and entered the results using a class pictogram.

๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘ƒOUR SENSES๐Ÿ‘…๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘‚

Following on from our fruit tasting lesson, using the sense of ๐Ÿ‘… TASTE, we decided to explore our other senses.  

SIGHT, SMELL, TASTE, HEAR, TOUCH 

The children were each given one of the 5 senses. They then worked in groups to devise a senses poster and present their work to the class.  They were fantastic!

 

 

๐ŸคฉPLAY BASED LEARNING๐Ÿคฉ

The children in P2 are having  great fun learning through their play based activities. Its all fun and games in our class!!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜

 

PDMU

We Are All Unique!

Catholic Schools Week

This week we have been talking about personal qualities and what makes us special and unique.  We read the story of Emer and reflected on how it is good to be different and unique. Wouldn't it be boring if we were all the same!

We also had fun making 'Unique Elmers' for our P2 class display.... ๐Ÿ‘€  And to top it off some Grandparents visited for 'Grandparents Day' and gave a helping hand with our Elmers!! SUPERB!!

NUMERACY

This week in P2 the children have been extremely busy problem solving and investigating different sets of numbers. They worked so well on individual tasks and in teams. Super mathematicians in the making!

In our class we have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. We have been guessing shapes using a feely bag and by their properties.   Using venn diagrams  also enabled the children to organise information visually so they were able to see the relationships between two or three sets of items. They were then able to identify similarities and differences.  We also had a lot of fun on our shape hunt around the school, take a look at what we found!

Literacy

To bring the learning to life today we introduced a game of pairs CVC Bingo and a team game of  CVC ‘Read and Run’. It most definitely brought out P2’s competitive side!  It was a lot of fun and a great way to reinforce our phonics.

             World Around Us

We ventured out to our Eco Garden this week to help Jack pick some berries that had grown on the over grown beanstalk. We couldn’t believe our ๐Ÿ‘€ eyes. There were loads.  The children thought it would be a great ๐Ÿ’ก idea to make blackberry jam! ๐Ÿ‘ (Next week).... to be continued... 

             ๐ŸŽฒ Numeracy ๐ŸŽฒ

P2 enjoyed making human number lines and ordering themselves from the smallest to the largest using numbers within 30.  

We also enjoyed a competitive game of 123 number 123 bingo.  The activity not only focused on number recognition but our  listening ๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ‘‚ skills. 

The new P2 pupils are a delight and have all settled in so well.  Here are just a few photos of the children in action today during our Numeracy Mental Maths session and Play Based Learning.
