P2 Tricky Words

We are trying very hard to learn to read and write our tricky words.

They are tricky  because

  • there are sounds that you hear but you don’t use to spell them
  • there are sounds you can’t hear but that you have to remember to write down

These are the new tricky words we are learning this term:

eight, learn, money, people, four, again, write, great, move, school, before, because, story, does, done

Here is a list of the all tricky words we have learned since primary 1. We are trying hard to spell these words correctly when we are writing stories.

Remember Santa is always particularly impressed if you spell these words correctly in your letters.

 

 

 

 

December chat

It’s amazing that we are nearly halfway through the year  already!  The children have dancingbeen working really hard right across the curriculum, while taking onthe duties of P7 well.

Since the beginning of November we have been at Benmore, had Parents’ Evenings, welcomed Pudsey to a Strictly Assembly, been immunised against the flu, learned about the Old Testament during Bible Alive presentations and helped at the Christmas Fair! And this is all as well as the Number Talk numeracy, improving our reading and writing and the Remebrance and Friction work we have been investigating.

And what’s coming up? Next week we’ll attend the P1-3 Nativity (not the staff one…) and are looking forward to Macastory’s Festive Friday show, The Frost Giant 2 – The Mirror of Malice.  Don’t forget your winter jumpers!

On 18th December our violinists will entertain us with a concert and Wednesday 20th December is…our ceilidh!
We have hired a 6 piece band for this event, and the children are encouraged to dress well for this.  More grown up than a “just” party they will dance with the invited guests and take part in games.
We also ask that each child brings something for the buffet table – enough for themselves and one other or tow others, not all 55 pupils! – and will ask them for their ideas in advance to prevent 55 plates of sausage rolls which, while delicious, have finite appeal…

Term will end after the church service on Friday 22nd December at 12 noon.  Then we’ll see you are the break for 2018!
