Primary 2


Welcome to Primary Two!




Mrs K Nicholl / Miss N Ferris - P2N

We would like to welcome all children to P2. 


We have another exciting year ahead with lots to learn and lots to discover. 


To encourage independence and enable your child to settle quickly back into the ways of school please ensure to let your child organise themselves once through the P2 doors.  Allow them to hang their coats and change their shoes when necessary.   Please ensure that all items of clothing, coats, jumpers, P.E. bags, lunchboxes etc are clearly labelled with your Childs name. 


Parental support makes a huge difference to your Childs education.  We are lucky to have such supportive parents at Cavehill.  We would appreciate continued support and encouragement at home.  We would encourage you reinforce the learning taking place in the classroom.  Always encourage your child to do their best when completing homeworks.  Word books will be given out on a Monday please ensure that these words are repeatedly practised at home as this will help your child read with confidence.   Don’t forget those initial letter sounds, practice makes perfect.


A Few Reminders


  •  A book in the bag will be sent home on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
  • Reading books will be sent home on Wednesday.
  • P.E will take place three times a week.
  • ICT will take place on Thursday.
  • Library will take place on Thursday.  (Please ensure all library books are sent in on Thursday.)
  • Written Homework will be sent out after Halloween.
  • Spellings will be sent out after Christmas.
  • Notes will usually be sent home on a Tuesday.  (Please check your Childs bag every day.)


All activities and homework sent home are to reinforce work being covered in the classroom.  Please work with your child as this will help to support them and enable them to see the importance of learning.


Throughout the year our topics will change.  Please keep an eye on our website for our latest topics and news. 


At times notes will be sent out regarding structured play.  Notes will be sent out during the year asking of donations of objects and items to enable us to create play stations using everyday familiar objects donations will be greatly received.
