In P2 we have been having a lot of fun making puppets based upon our fairy tales topic. Today we had the opportunity to perform puppet shows to our classmates. We were able to act out our favourite fairy tales with lots of confidence and created very entertaining shows!
Primary 2 were inspired by the fairy tale The Three Little Pigs and have had a very busy afternoon making their own junk model houses. We used all sorts of recycled materials and have created some fantastic, creative models – have a look at some of them in the photo gallery!
This week in primary 2 we have been doing different activities for Maths Week Scotland, we particularly enjoyed getting outside in the sunshine to complete a maths trail! We explored the playground, counting out and making shapes from different objects that we found. We loved using clipboards and working in teams!
P2 and P6 worked together outside looking for signs of Autumn. They selected different natural materials and created nature pictures. They look fabulous!
What a busy time we are having learning all about healthy food! On Friday we made sandwiches – we had to spread the butter, chop the cucumber, cut the bread and eat it all up! Today we met Sally from Field to Fork and we learned more about whole grains, then we enjoyed some tasty porridge!
P1 and P2 had lots of fun at our Christmas party. We played lots of great games and showed off our dancing skills before going back to the classroom for some party food. The most exciting part of the afternoon was when we went back to the hall and had a very special visitor….
The children in P1 and P2 did a great job of performing their nativity today. They performed for the rest of the school in the morning and for parents and carers this afternoon. Here are some pictures of the P1s getting ready in the classroom and of this morning’s performance.
P2 have been very busy learning how to sort, organise and record lots of information. We have learned how to make Venn and Carrol diagrams – we are very good at this! We have also been practising our adding and subtracting skills using the computers to help us 🙂
Primary 2 have been learning all about Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights. We have listened to and acted out the story, made clay divas, designed rangoli patterns to decorate doorsteps , drawn very detailed hand patterns and made coconut ice! We have also been outside practising our counting on and back strategies.
