P2 Learning at Home Week beginning 8th February 2021

Hi P2,

Welcome back and we hope you all had a lovely, relaxing week off school. 

This week we are continuing with your work packs - you can follow the overview or complete tasks at your own pace. We hope you enjoy all of the activities.

Spellings this week is list 11 in your planner (page 48) and there is also a copy in your pack. There is a copy of the tricky words on the school website for you to keep going over as well.

If you are confident with your tricky words please have a look over the list of high frequency words included in your planner - it would be a good idea to start practising reading these words too.

For mental maths this week we are practising counting forward to 70 and knowing the number before and after another number within 30. We are also practising counting in 2s to 50, 5s to 60, quick recall of adding 1,2,3 and 4 within 20 and doubles within 20.

Have a look at the number grid on page 74 in your planner to help you become familiar with the counting in 2's and 5's pattern.  It is a good idea to try some practical maths at home too -  maybe you could help with measuring ingredients in the kitchen or use your toys to help you answer some number problems.

This week, we are reminding ourselves on how to tell the time. We are starting with o'clock times on the analogue clock. You can have a go at telling the time on a clock you have at home or you can make a human clock with your arms and legs. We hope you enjoy the activities and games in your pack.

Please keep reading as much as you can at home - its been great hearing about all the lovely books that you all have at home. Remember that you can access a wide variety of books on the Epic app, as well as the books that we have recommended for you, or you could try Oxford Reading Owl too. 

We will continue to set literacy and numeracy IXL tasks for you to do each day. We look forward to seeing the activities you complete this week. Well done for all your hard work on IXL so far, we are so proud of you! 

We have included some more fun videos this week for you to try as well and remember to keep completing your Random Acts of Kindness Bingo on page 26 of your planner. If you get a chance to try one of the tasks please do send us a photo.  We really miss all your wee faces and love to hear about all the nice things you are getting the chance to do at home. Maybe you could draw a picture and send us a photo of your fab artwork?

You can email any photos to or

Have fun this week and we can't wait to see you all soon!
