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!
P2 and P3 had a visit from Tom Nicoll this week, the author of “There’s a Dragon in my Dinner!” Tom told us about him, how he became a writer and read some of the story to us. Lots of children had brought money to buy a signed copy of his book! P2 have definitely been trying there hardest to give it a read.
Homework club has had a great start in the last 2 weeks. I can’t say its always this quiet but we had a very focused 10 minutes or so on Monday!
Well done Homework club! See you on Monday.

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.

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 even got a spot of cooking done!
We spent most of the morning outside. We are hoping for more snow soon to make snowmen.
Welcome to our new children and their families. We are getting to know each other and having fun.
We also had fun in the snow today!
Brushing , scooping, scraping and mashing the snow. It was lots of fun. Some of us hardly had time to stop for snack we were so busy!
