This week, we focused on the topic book We’re off to Look for Aliens. We sequenced the story, splitting it into a beginning, middle and end, we found rhyming strings and described and painted the characters. We made rockets out of recycled materials and learnt all about space. In Numeracy, we focused on both shape and money. We counted, ordered and sequenced numbers to 100, focusing on counting in 2, 5 and 10. This week was also St Patrick’s week , we read stories on Irish legends and complete some activities on St Patrick. Finally , we had our first assembly with Mr Fitzsimons who told us all about St Patrick and how he became the patron Saint of Ireland . ☘️☘️☘️

We all made our planets and astronauts.We have been working very hard on revising our number bonds to 20 and addition within 20. We have also been ordering numbers to 100. The boys and girls in P.2 have also been working hard on forming sentences using our phonics to help us. We have had great fun outside in the play park making wonderful memories with our friends. It is truly wonderful to have the children back in class and I am so proud of their resilience and progress in their learning.

First Week Back in School
What a great start the P2/3 class has made to being back at school. They had lots of fun learning about their new topic “Marvellous Me.” The children really enjoyed reading the topic book “The Ugly Duckling” and loved making swans, painting pictures, acting out the story and playing in our hospital along with so much more. They had super fun during P.E. with the soft play equipment and during Outdoor Play. Well done P2/3 - keep up the great work!
