Primary 2 Tricky Words

Primary 2 have been learning to read and write some more Tricky Words. We have been looking at the patterns within these words – which parts do we know/recognise? What are the easy parts/hard parts?

The words we have been learning are as follows:

other mother another have live give work world word house also friend most old little

We have worked hard, in class, to know these words well. Ask us if we can read or write these words for you at home. Can we tell you what makes these words tricky? Maybe you could play a few games with the words too?

Have fun, and thank you for your continued support.

Mr Brownlie, Ms Law and Mrs Tennant

P7 Robert Burns Home Learning Tasks.

Next week is Scots’ Week at QPS and P7 have a number of responsibilities as part of this.

In class we have already written wonderful examples of The Immortal Memory from notes we made using a variety of sources.

On Teams we have shared a Home Learning task for all pupils to undertake; writing a Toast to the Lassies or to the Laddies in reply.

Instructions are available online as a Teams assignment just now and we will send paper copies home on Friday 21st too. We expect these pieces of writing to be handed in on Tuesday so Mr Lynch and Mr Carson can choose our favourites to be recorded and shared as part of our Burns Celebration morning on Friday!

Please support us and your children with this work and get in touch if there are any questions.

Primary 2 Literacy – w/b 4th October

Here are the sounds and words we are learning to read and write in P2 this week.

Sounds – au and aw. Please cut these out of the yellow sounds card and continue to practise and build words with them alongside last year’s initial sounds, for example h-au-l says haul and p-aw says paw. Yesterday we talked about ‘au’ being a beginning or middle sound (autumn, astronaut, Paul etc) whereas ‘aw’ usually appears on the end of a word, or can be followed by letters l or n (law, saw, fawn, crawl etc).

Words – we have revised the words ‘into’ and ‘here’. Our new tricky words this week are ‘do and ‘as’. We talked about the easy and the hard parts of the words.

Can we read and write these words (and sounds) and use them correctly in sentences? Have we spotted them in this week’s new reading books or in our favourite books and comics? Have a go.

Primary 2 Literacy – w/b 27th September

Here are the sounds and words we will be learning to read and write in P2 this week.

Sounds – ou and ow. Please cut these out of the yellow sounds card and continue to practise and build words with them alongside last year’s initial sounds, for example sh-ou-t says shout and t-ow-n says town. Today we talked about ‘ou’ being a beginning or middle sound (our, cloud etc) whereas ‘ow’ usually appears on the end of a word, or is followed by the letter n (how, now, town, crown, frown etc).

Words – we have revised the words ‘were’ and ‘there’. Our new tricky words this week are ‘into’ and ‘here’. We talked about the easy and the hard parts of the words. Can the boys and girls read and write these words (and sounds) and use them correctly in the context of a sentence? Maybe they’ll be spotted in this week’s new reading books?

Primary 2 Literacy

A big Thank You to everyone for joining us, yesterday, for our virtual ‘Meet the Teacher’. As promised, here are the sounds and words we have been practising this week.

Sounds – oi and oy. Please cut these out of the yellow sounds card and continue to practise and build words with them alongside last year’s initial sounds, for example s-oi-l says soil and c-oi-in says coin.

Words – we have revised the words her, of, you and one. Our new tricky word this week is ‘were’. Can the boys and girls read and write these words and use them correctly in the context of a sentence? Maybe they’ll be spotted in this week’s reading books? Have a go!

Primary 1/2 Literacy

We are having a busy week in P1/2L learning lots of new sounds, spelling rules and tricky words.

P1 have learned the letters ‘c’ and ‘l’ and have been making words with them, and have been reading and writing tricky words ‘to’, ‘he’ and ‘me’.

Primary 2 have started to discuss the rule of ‘Magic e’ and have been learning how Magic e changes the sound of a vowel in a word. We have changed the sound of letter ‘a’ in words, making the vowel say its name – tap becomes tape, man becomes mane etc. We also learned the tricky word ‘other’, helping us with ‘mother’, ‘brother’ and ‘another’.
