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

Squirrel Trail

Good afternoon everyone

Here are all of the details you will need to follow Primary 2’s Squirrel Trail.

Attached is the map of South Queensferry, which you can follow, telling you where the squirrels might be.

Please mark off each squirrel you find, using the key with pictures of squirrels to help identify them.

If you haven’t already seen it, please watch our video showing how the squirrels were made. See the link below:

Happy hunting 🙂
