Welcome to P2/3

Miss McSorley teaches P2/3 and is supported by classroom assistant, Catriona.

Literacy:

P2/3 have many opportunities for Talking and Listening activities, including pair/share, group work activities and hot seating. P2/3 take part in weekly spelling activities. We follow the Sounds Write programme using the Initial Code (P2) and the Initial and Extended Code (P3). Our reading is heard in our guided reading groups Monday-Thursday weekly. P3’s also complete comprehension activities weekly. P2/3 complete activities on a shared reading book/poem each week, including using active comprehension strategies. P2’s begin “have a go” (independent) writing. P3’s continue to extend their writing even further. We cover a range of genres of writing throughout the year. For example, recount writing, letter writing, diary writing and poetry. We look at elements of punctuation and grammar too.

Numeracy:

In P2 Number, we recap on numbers to 10 and addition and subtraction to 10, including the number stories. This is then extended to numbers to 20 and beyond. We explore addition and subtraction within 20.

In P3 Number, we work on numbers and their stories to 20, progressing on to numbers to 50 and 100. We begin to add and subtract numbers using tens and units. We do weekly problem solving activities to extend our mathematical reasoning.

P2/3 make use of the Numicon resource, a practical way to approach Numeracy.

In our topic maths we explore the areas of Measure (time, length, capacity and weight), Shape and Space and Handling data.

World Around Us:

This year- 2016/2017 our topics will be- Me and My World, Celebrations, Famous People, Things that go bump in the night and Under the Sea.

Other curriculum areas we explore are the Arts (Music, Art and Drama), PE and ICT.

Play:

P2 have play activities daily (Foundation Stage).

P3 have play activities twice a week (Key Stage One)

Coaches/ Tuition:

Monday- Gaelic and Music/Tin Whistle

Tuesday- Dance and Irish

We enjoy earning our Golden Time and getting chosen to be Miss McSorley's 'Helper of the Day'. Each one of us has a class job to carry out too.

Two afternoons a week, Miss McSorley takes all the P3 pupils for lessons together.
