Welcome to our P2 page.
P2 is the final year of Foundation Stage and there is lots to learn before pupils move into Key Stage 1 (P3). Our P2 teachers are Miss Fletcher/Mrs Bunn, Mrs Neill & Mrs McNeilly. We are starting our year with 2 other lovely teachers joining our team - Mrs McMaster & Mrs Todd. During the year, we enjoy lots of learning both in and out of the classroom. With Literacy, Numeracy and World Around Us; as well as Play Based Learning, PE, Music and Outdoor Play - there's never a dull moment!
We will begin P2 by getting settled into our new classrooms and getting to know our new teachers. We are going to revise what we all ready know in preparation for the new topics we will cover. Let’s take a look at what we will be learning:-
Literacy: In Literacy we will be learning sounds that will help us decode tricky words when reading. Reading will be completed in school and we will communicate with you Home Reading. The Robinson family have lots of adventures in store for us. We will also be learning about sentence structure and using our imaginations to write stories!
Numeracy: We will start by going over some familiar concepts; pupils will then be introduced to a new number each week and will consolidate learning to add mentally & with practical resources. P2 will be discovering 2D shapes in our environment and using thinking skills to sort & create patterns. We will also be doing lots of counting and mental maths activities on the Interactive Whiteboard.
Topics - P2 will start by sharing about the Summer; places they enjoyed going to & activities they like to do. We then move on to the Pirates topic - where we think about transport, wind and movement. It's a real favourite for the pupils!
Don't forget to access the Seesaw Family App for your child
Education City has also been updated with a September folder!
The teachers have planned lots of fun activities for Play Based Learning; both inside and outside. We hope to get outside as much as we can to learn together and play.
It's going to be lots of fun!
P2 Home Learning
As you know we are entering into a period of time where our lovely P2s must "Learn at Home." We miss them already and through our school website and our remote app “Seesaw,” we hope to enable parents and pupils to be educated at home. We realise that this is a big ask but be assured we will endeavour to set it out week by week. We value their well-being and happiness being our top priority. Children thrive on routine and they are very used to covering these areas below throughout their day, and actually take delight in learning.
There are 4 main areas that over the next few months will hopefully be covered at home:
1. Literacy- spellings, reading, written
2. Numeracy- mental, practical, recorded
3. Play Based Learning- whether it is indoor or outdoor- have ideas to create discussion in play, being creative, discovering new things, acting something out, being active in PE games, being quiet and still
4. Develop an understanding of our world - through History, Geography, Art, Music, Science
We thank you for all your support and our hearts go out to all those key workers who are busy every day helping us all. Remember you can only do what is possible😊
