Walk around Macmerry.

Today P2 went on a walk around Macmerry to find different types of houses. We had our clipboards and pencils and ticked off our houses sheets along the way. We found: detached houses, semi-detached houses, bungalows, terraced houses, caravans and flats! We also found some houses which were two types of houses in one!

Well done Primary Two and thank you to all the adults who came with us.

Busy in P2

Primary two have been working really hard since we came back from the winter break. We’ve been practicing our phonics, reading, spelling, learning colours in French, balancing, working together, drama, yoga, using computers, learning about children’s rights and we even got to see some rocks from Mars! Have a look at the photos of some of the things that we have been learning!

Well done to our class photographers for getting some great pictures :).

Morning nursery have fun in the snow!

We couldn’t wait to get outside today! It was all go in the garden. Clearing snow from the slide. It was super fast today!


Making snow Angels…


Seeing how much snow we could collect in our buckets…



Finding patterns and making marks in the snow …

We spent most of the morning outside. We are hoping for more snow soon to make snowmen.

P2 parent helpers wanted!

It “Rocks” in P5/6!

P5/6 had a great day sharing their knowledge about Mars and the surface of Mars with the rest of the school today.  For one week, we have a box of meteorites on loan to P5/6.   The box contains one real meteorite from Mars (found recently in the Sahara desert) and other very old meteorites and samples of rocks similar to those found on Mars by Martian rover expeditions.   There is also a sample of soil that is thought to be so similar to soil on Mars that NASA use it for their experiments.  One day we hope to be able to send someone to Mars…..will it be you?!  We used magnets to show the metal content of the meteorites and we looked at some through a magnifying glass.  We wrote fact cards and answered the questions from children in P1-P7.  Cassidy from P2 said ” I learned that some were magnetic” and Shay said he learned that “some were as old as the dinosaurs!”.  Many thanks to all the parents who came to to visit our “Mars Exhibition”.
