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 🙂

Team P2

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 – virtual Meet the Teacher

Thank you very much for joining us yesterday afternoon to hear a wee bit more about life in Primary 2. It was great to have so many people online with us. We do appreciate that we shared quite a bit of information with you so we hope that sharing our PowerPoint helps with this. As always if you have any questions, or would like to check anything with us, please just get in touch.

Thank you for your continued support.

Ms Law, Mr Brownlie and Mrs Tennant

P1 and P2 letter 07.01.21

Dear Families

A very Happy New Year to you all. As you are aware, online learning for the children begins on Monday 11 January. Every morning, the P1 and P2 teachers will post a video explaining the activities for the day. There will also be attachments and links to help the children with their learning. In preparation for this, we wondered if you would be able to send a message or picture via Seesaw to your class teacher, just so that we know you are ok for Monday. (This could be as simple as a Happy New Year message!)

Please remember, that in our classrooms the activities that the children complete are interspersed with lots of play and so will be done throughout the day and not in one sitting. We also stop for milk, story and lunch! Hopefully you will find that these activities will fit into your timetable at home, allowing for your own family and work commitments. We realise that this is a different way of learning for everyone, so please do what is manageable.

If you have any problems accessing your child’s learning or any other queries about home learning, please contact us via email or Seesaw -we are here to help you.

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to hearing from you.

P1 and P2 class teachers
