Now we are big P2s we are learning to use our sounds to spell words independently and use these to make lots of interesting sentences. The fun part is exploring sounds through games and Structured Play. We love hunting for words in the sand tray and deciding if it is a real or nonsense word!
In Numeracy, we practise counting to 20 in the classroom, in the playground and even in PE! We love using money in our role play bus station and can buy bus tickets with 1p, 2p and 5p coins. Our favourite game on the interactive whiteboard is Hit the Button, we really get to grips with number bonds to 10 and love beating our high score.
Throughout the year we do lots of exciting topics such as Transport, Polar Places, Space, People Who Help Us and The Jungle. To help us learn about our topics we sometimes invite special people to visit our class or we take a trip to somewhere that will help us find out more. Our first trip of the school year is to Newtownards Airport. We get to explore the aircraft hangars and even sit in some of the Cessnas and Helicopters!
One of our favourite topics in P2 is Space. We enjoy watching videos of the first moon landing and even write about being an Astronaut and landing on our own made up planets. We end this unit with a trip to W5. Their workshop on Tim Peake and his missions to the ISS are fun and we learn a lot about space travel.
Each week we have a Spanish lesson. We enjoy singing Spanish songs to help us learn numbers, colours, animals and more. We always play fun games to help us remember our Spanish.
