P2 Learning at Home Weeks 1 - 4

Hello P2 parents!

We hope you and your families are keeping well and staying safe.

Below there are a number of documents which we will keep adding to over the first 4 weeks of learning at home.  Keep checking the website for new documents or videos, as we will be adding to these each week.  Remember, to check Slido for any messages and to ask us any questions you might have. 

Weeks 1 - 4 documents = 

  • Reading and Audio books - As we cannot send reading books home over such a long period, we have included links to books with text for your child to read and audio books they can listen to.  When finding books for your child to read remember to find their age group and books appropriate to their ability.
  • Easter ideas - this includes art and craft ideas, fun outdoor games, online games, links for the Easter story.
  • 'The Easter story' powerpoint - This tells the story of Easter with texts and pictures.
  • 'Grow a rainbow' - a practical fun way to grow your own rainbow in support of the NHS!
  • 'My 2020 Covid 19 tasks' - These are fun tasks related to being at home in this present situation and will provide valuable insights into how your child is feeling and provide opportunities for great discussion.
  • Outdoor Learning in Numeracy and Literacy- These are fun activities that require only chalk or pebbles and other items you will have at home.
  • Get Active, Art & Music - Joe Wicks, Oti Mabuse, Jump Jonny, Art Ninja and Body Beats percussion.
  • Mission Mondays - these are problem-solving challenges for your child.
  • Videos - Word Hunt Part 1 & 2 = Mrs. H demonstrating how to play Word Hunt outdoors!  Unfortunately, there were technical difficulties uploading the video so it had to be uploaded in 2 parts and the clips shortened. Digit cards addition and subtraction - ideas for games within 10, within 20 and number words.
  • CVC Blending powerpoint and 3 digraph (double sounds) powerpoints.

Don't forget to try some of the websites/apps in your packs.

Also, your handouts/notes from the P2 Curriculum Evening in Sept 2019 will give you some good practical ideas for Numeracy and Literacy.

From Monday, 4th May our online learning will commence and instructions for this will be posted here.  From Friday, 1st May the online learning activities will be uploaded to this page every Friday afternoon to be completed the following week.

Thank you for all your support and hard work.  A huge clap for all the grown-ups managing at home/being a key worker with children and home schooling and a huge clap to all the children at home behaving for their parents and working hard at this difficult time.

Stay safe and remember to take time to enjoy interacting with your families - its not all about school work!
