November in Primary 2 Blue
Primary 2 Blue are looking forward to the new term and all the activities they will be involved in with the lead up to Christmas.
We learn a new sound each week and have common words which we work on every day at school and as homework tasks. This month we will be concentrating on:
ue – blue best number other
aw – very took fast there
oi – their some them last
au – because week keep when
Our main focus will be looking at time. We will be learning how to use a calendar to plan and be organised for key events. We will also be looking at analogue clocks concentrating on o’clock and half past. Fun Mental Maths games and activities will also be available for the children.
Health and Wellbeing
The children will be learning about life in Australia. We will be looking at the Australian climate, wildlife, Aboriginal people, cities and culture. Taught writing lessons will be centred around this topic. Children will be writing postcards, making tourist information leaflets etc.
Gym lessons will be on a Monday and Wednesday. All children should have gym kit in school. For safety reasons earrings should not be worn. Please either remove them on gym days or cover with tape.
Please ensure that your child has their reading book with them on a daily basis. Groups are heard twice a week. However books are needed every day for reading activities.
