Welcome to P2/P3

Mrs Boggs and Miss Kirk teach the other half of the P2 class along with P3, assisted by Sandra, Karen and Julie. We have a fun year in store for all our pupils with some fantastic topics to explore, like 'Superheroes'; 'Our Place in Space' and 'Land Ahoy!'. 

Literacy:

P2/3 have many opportunities for Talking and Listening activities, including pair/share, role-play, group work activities and hot seating. P2 take part in weekly spelling activities from Halloween and P3 from in September. We follow the Sounds Write programme using the Initial Code and Extended Code. Our reading is heard in our guided reading groups. At home P2/3 should read Monday-Thursday weekly and are heard in class at least twice a week.  P2/3 participate in a variety of reading activities, including using active comprehension strategies. We enjoy story time each day to encourage reading for enjoyment.  This year, our focus on writing will focus on the genres: Report, Instruction and Recount, as well as exploring creative writing. We also explore areas of grammar and punctuation. During literacy we also enjoy incorporating elements of drama into our lessons.

Numeracy:

In P2 Number, we recap on numbers to 10 and addition and subtraction to 10, including the number stories. This is then extended to numbers to 20 and beyond. We explore addition and subtraction within 20. P2 make use of the Numicon resource, a practical way to approach Numeracy as well as an array of other practical resources and outdoor learning.

P3 Number will focus on numbers to 100 and beyond, including addition and subtraction. We will begin to explore number patterns, including multiplication and division. We will look at money within £1 and explore fractions. 

In our topic maths we explore the areas of Measure (time, length, capacity and weight), Shape and Space and Handling data using lots of practical exploration. 

ICT:

In ICT, P2/3 will be focusing on film and animation, including stop motion animation. We will explore Art & Design through ICT apps as well as Coding in Term 3. This year, we will continue to use 'Seesaw' to explore our learning through ICT.

Religion:

For religion, we follow the ‘Grow in Love’ programme.

 

PDMU:

We explore a variety of topics including building self-esteem, exploring our talents, keeping safe and healthy as well as topics to explore mutual understanding amongst themselves, their peers and others in their community and beyond. 

 

World Around Us:

Our topic for term one is: ‘Superheroes.’ World Around Us is incorporated into our Literacy, Numeracy and ICT as well as our Play and Outdoor Learning. 

Physical Education:

PE days will be confirmed in the coming weeks.  Pupils should wear their PE gear to school on these days.

Music:

Music will be every Monday with Mrs. Sweeney. Pupils should bring their tin whistles and music folder every Monday.

Play:

P2 have play activities daily which will combine both indoor and outdoor learning. We explore a variety of fun learning areas within play, including Construction, Creative Arts, Sand and Water Play, Small World Play, Table Top Dramatic Play and Dough Play. Literacy, Numeracy and ICT will be incorporated throughout.  P3 will participate in one play session per week. 

We enjoy earning our Golden Time each week and earning House Points. Pupils will be celebrated for their achievements and a positive sense of wellbeing is promoted with a variety of strategies including a 'Zen Zone'; positive behaviour rewards such as stickers, certificates, good notes home and prizes.
