Be scared, be very, very scared!! (Mrs Kemp was!)
The following is to give you a rough outline of what we plan to do this term:
IDL (Interdisciplinary ) topic – The Weather, Christmas
Numeracy – continuing with addition, moving on to complete number bonds to 20 and introducing the concept of multiplication through repeated addition.
Maths – Measurement (length, weight, capacity)
Health and Wellbeing – Feelings
PE – continuing with ball skills
Writing – a mixture of functional, personal, imaginative and poetry, some of which related to IDL topic eg weather reports, imaginative stories relating to different types of weather, poems about the weather, report on Nativity, letter to Santa)
Grammar – continuing focus on sentences, joining words
And a big focus on the Primary 1 to 3 Nativity!
It’s a good job we had on clean socks and tights today as we took part in an art workshop organised by Dawn and Marian from a company called Fingers and Thumbs. We had one of our feet covered in white paint and used it to make a print which we then turned into a ghost. Spooky!
Wow!! Thank you to all the mums, dads, grannies, grandpas and friends who came to our tea party. It was a huge success. The Primary 2 children worked very hard to make a selection of sandwiches – ham, cheese and salame – and chocolate crispies, which were all devoured very quickly! Thank you to Inika’s mum, Lorna, for the delicious lemon drizzle cakes, that was so kind of you and to Mandy for all your help, as always. We finished off the morning by singing ‘My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean’ and ‘What shall we do with the Drunken Sailor’. We hope you all enjoyed the morning as much as we did.
Mrs Kemp and Primary 2
PS sorry there weren’t any cakes left for you, Mrs Hilsley..!
