Week 1: Monday 11th January 2021

Hello Primary Two!  I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Santa gave you lots of presents.  I have set out some work for you to have a go at this week.  Online reading books have been allocated to you on Collins.  Online literacy tasks have been set on Education City and see-saw.  Numeracy tasks have been set on Mathletics, Education City and see-saw.  Usernames and passwords for online activities can be found in your learning pack.  I will also send these via see-saw.  I will refer to written and practical activities which can be found in your work pack.  If you have not already collected it yet please phone the school to arrange a time to collect it.  I look forward to seeing photographs of your work on See-saw.  Do not feel that you have to complete all the activities.  Choose what you feel best suits your family situation as we understand that many parents are working from home at this time.  This term our new topic is clothes.    

                                                                                             Good luck!

                                                                                             Mrs Conway

Write each sound on a post-it or square of paper.  Encourage your child to make the spellings by re-arranging the post-its or squares.  They may make a spelling while looking at a word such as 'cat' to find the matching sounds or just by listening to the sounds.  When a word is complete ask your child to point to each letter and say each sound in order, stretch the sounds slowly then say the word fast.  They do this in school every day!
