“The Street” welcomes people to Scotland in P2

This week on “the street” we had some new arrivals! Some new people arrived on the street hungry and tired, they told us they couldn’t go back to their homes because it wasn’t safe and they had nowhere to go.

P2 worked co-operatively to decide what we should do to help the new arrivals. As a whole class, we decided to let them stay in our houses on “the street”. We then spoke about people who are arriving on streets in East Lothian and wanted to welcome them by writing some cards.

P2 have been very thoughtful and considerate with this topic and should be very proud!

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 :).
