Primary 2

We would like to welcome you all to Primary Two!

We aim to continue to provide a learning environment which offers a wide range of engaging and challenging opportunities to help children to continue to reach their full potential.

We ensure a smooth transition from P1 to P2, we want your child to feel safe and happy and for you as a parent to feel welcome and part of our school family. We believe that parent partnership with school staff is a vital aspect of your child’s education and this is greatly valued in Wheatfield.  Please feel free to make an appointment to come and talk with us about anything concerning your child’s welfare or education.

In Primary Two there is one teacher and an amazing classroom assistant.

  • Mrs L Anderson

    Primary 2 Teacher

  • Mrs M Stockman

    Primary 2 Assistant

Topics This Year

  • All About Me
  • Houses and Homes
  • People Who Help Us

In the Foundation Stage children learn in a more informal way. We place strong emphasis on active learning, where children are engaged in hands-on activities.

A Few Reminders

What to bring to school

Your child will need to bring the following things to school:

  • School bag (provided by school)
  • Lunch box (If your child is bringing a lunch from home)
  • PE slippers (named and in a PE bag)

Please label anything that your child brings to school 

Routines in P2  

To encourage independence we would like to remind parents to leave their children lined up outside the front door. This will help the children settle into the daily routines of school life and avoids a traffic jam in the small corridor.

If you wish to speak to the teacher at any point please write or phone the class teacher to arrange an appointment.

Break and Dinner Money

We ask parents to send a healthy snack to school each day e.g. fruit, yoghurts, crackers, cheese etc.

Milk is £1 per week and milk money is collected on Thursday mornings to pay in advance for the next week’s milk order.

School dinners currently cost £2.55 per day. Dinner money is collected on Monday mornings.
If you think you are entitled to Free School Meals please ask Mrs McDonald at reception for a form to complete.
