PE Days


Our PE days are on Tuesdays and Thursdays for P2B and Mondays and Tuesdays for P2A.  Please ensure your child has their PE kit with them on these days.  We do a lot of running and jumping in our sessions and this can be quite tough on young feet and legs if your child does not have appropriate footwear on so it is a good idea to provide a pair of trainers for your child to wear on these days.

 




Phonics - Please see the front of your child's Phonics Homework jotter for instructions and daily tasks.  Where possible please spread the homework out over the course of a week.  Doing a little bit each night will be be better for your child in the long term.


Phonics - Your child has been provided with a 'Phonics Keyring' which has a list of all the sounds and words which will be learned over the course of Primary 2.  Please refer to the instructions provided. 

 

Maths Homework - children will receive Maths games to play over the course of the year.  They should play these at least twice a week. Regular practice will improve your child's mental maths skills so they are able to instantly recall facts as opposed to counting on their fingers.  Please also make good use of the links to the Maths games which are below in the 'Useful Websites' section.  Undertaking these activities at least twice a week will help further develop your child's numeracy skills.

The Big Me

 

Primary 2 enjoyed dressing up as part of the ‘Big Me’ fundraising day. We dressed up as what we would like to be when we’re older. Can you guess what we are from our costumes?
