Week10/ 22.6.2020

Hello boys and girls!

                          I am sure that you can hardly believe that this is your last full week of Primary 2.  I know that you all miss your friends and hopefully you will be able to meet up with them again soon.  I hope that you have enjoyed all our topics this year: Houses and Homes, People Who Help Us, Clothes, Fruit and Vegetables and Water and Pirates.  I have all your wonderful work and art safe.  You will be able to collect these when you return to school after the summer holidays.  Your new reading books, mental maths and online activities have been set.  Have fun with our pirate theme this week.  Enjoy your summer holidays and spend lots of time playing outside.  I am looking forward to seeing your smiles and how big you grow over the holidays.

                                              Mrs Conway      

Our last maths challenge is 'Mystery at the Little Hallow Carnival.'

Literacy: Handwriting

Find things in your house beginning with 'k.' Listen to the 'Kk' song.  Complete the 'Kk' worksheet and draw and label at least 3 things beginning with 'k' on the back.  Over the holidays encourage your child to learn the names of the letters in the alphabet and to recognise capital letters if they do not know these already.  This will be useful for next year.  Listen to 'The Alphabet Song' and 'The Big and Small Letters Song.'

Literacy: Memories of Primary Two

Draw a picture and write a few sentences about about something you did in Primary Two.  This might be playing in your favourite area with your friends, dancing with Mrs Conway and Coach Alison from 'Healthy Kidz' or doing art-work with Mrs O' Dowd.  We can't wait to hear all about it when you come back to school.

Numeracy: Money

Have a go at the worksheet pack 'How much money in the jar?'  Alternatively draw your own jar and set out real coins for your child to count.  Begin counting coins to 10p then extend this as your child becomes more competent.  For some children it is helpful to tap a 1p coin once, a 2p coin twice and a 5p coin five times to help them find the total amount.  Encourage your child to start counting beginning with the coin with the highest value.  If your child is adding 2p, 2p, 1p and 10p it is useful to add them in the following order: 10p, 2p, 2p and 1p.  Your child can therefore begin counting starting at the number 10.  Practise counting in 2's, 5's and 10's using practical games eg. throwing up a bean bag or doing star jumps.  This will help when counting money.   Maybe you could make your very own treasure chest with real money as treasure. Don't forget to count it first!
