This week began with a party, P2 C really love treats! Our new topic of Space is so much fun and the children loved exploring all our new Space themed play activities. We learned all about the letter ‘t’ in phonics and 1’2’3 in numeracy. Our book of the week was ‘Aliens love underpants’, the children helped Mrs Caughey remember all the rhyming words in the story, she is so forgetful! Monday will begin our home communication on Seesaw so next weeks photos will be found in the children’s new online journals.

We had such a fun music lesson today. We learned how to find the pulse and beat of a song. We have some great musicians in P2C 🎶🎶
This week we started the lovely topic of Autumn. Thank you to those who filled their Autumn treasure bags, we had the most amazing Autumn tuff tray for the children to explore! There were conkers, acorns, leaves, pine cones, home grown apples and pears. Our numeracy focus was pattern and we started off by stamping apple patterns. Our literacy focus was the ‘a’ sound and we are getting really good at hearing it, spotting it, and saying it. Our pupil of the week is Jake, he has been making us all smile. We finished today with making masks, painting pumpkins, treats for break (thanks to our adults) and a trip to the nearby park. Hollie was our P2C prize winner for her entry into the Killard art competition ~ well done Hollie! We are sorry that we can’t continue our topic next week. Why don’t you go out for an Autumn walk to collect more treasure and let our P2s show off their sorting, matching and counting skills! Enjoy the break and stay safe, we will look forward to our next topic of ‘Space’ when we return.

We are learning all about the ‘a’ sound. We think we are so good at making the sound that we took a video, Mrs Caughey is super impressed!
This was our last week of the topic ‘Inside Out’, we finished with a nail salon and large soft building blocks in playtime. Our numeracy focus was comparing the size of objects and our letter sound was ‘A’. We were very excited when we got our very own pets in P2 ~ two goldfish who we named Buzz and Woody. Each day someone from our class gets to feed them, we have loved watching them swim around and they seem very happy. A big ‘Happy Birthday’ to Cooper, it was his birthday on Monday and we hope that he had a really fun day! Well done to Olivia on being awarded pupil of the week. Next week we are looking forward to our new topic of Autumn 🌿🍂🍁 we are excited to see the Autumn treasures the children bring into school on Monday in their treasure bags that went home with them today.

This week we have been exploring our emotions and inside our bodies. In phonics we perfected our ‘S’ sound and in numeracy we were comparing amounts. The addition of a Doctors surgery to our home corner was a big hit and it was lovely to watch the children’s imagination as they played in it. Another highlight this week included our focus book ‘The Colour Monster’ Mrs Caughey’s granny made us all of the monsters and we loved playing with them! A big thank you to Zoe from our Speech and Language team for coming into our class to do an ‘Attention Bucket’ session, we had so much fun and everyone was so engaged.

What a busy week! We are still exploring inside our bodies and our family, we love browsing through our all about me books, they fit into our topic perfectly. We learned all about the ‘S’ sound and had lots of giggles when everyone tried on Mrs Caughey’s sunglasses! In numeracy we were sorting and we were so good at sorting socks that Mrs Caughey thinks we could help our families do the laundry at home!

Today (Friday 4th) we went on a nature hunt. We found leaves, twigs, pebbles and Olivia found a feather! Afterwards we played a memory game and guessed what natural item Mrs Caughey took away from under a blanket, she tried hard to trick us but we knew! We loved getting outside to explore our beautiful outside area, and when we got back into the classroom we put our treasures on our nature table! Over the next few weeks we will be learning about Autumn so if we find interesting items outdoors we can bring them in and explore them with our class on our nature table.
Our first pupil of the week is Jack. Jack has had a great start to his P2 year and he always has a smile on his face ~ well done Jack!
