Memories of P2/3

Last year was a lot of fun learning in P2/3. Here are some photos we had that were not put on the Blog.

How many of these do you remember?

Cooking With Mrs Elderfield

Near the end of term, a group a day went to cook something with Mrs Elderfield then the the whole class got to taste it.

We focussed on the safe preparation of the food, and using ingredients that were locally produced. Over the week they got to prepare a 3 course meal with a starter, main course and sweet.

The children had a great time, and some of them said it was the best food they had ever tasted!

Health & Wellbeing

An email has been sent to all P2/3 parents with information about the things we are covering this week and possibly next in our ‘Privacy & Our Bodies Are Private’ Topic.

It is giving you information to know how you can support your child at home.

If you do not appear to have received this or other school emails, please check your spam mailbox and contact the school if you do not find them.

The Recycling Heroes Save Gullane!

Today No-Junk-Josh, Recycling Rachel, Anti-Litter-Anna and Reducing George came into Gullane primary school and were shocked to see children messing up the playground, park, astro, going home from home and the beach.

Then the Recycling Rangers took the naughty kids to the recycling classroom. We told them to research about recycling. Elsa & Erika told us about what litter is. Tom and Aylee told us about decomposing.

Fergus & Charlie told us what we can put in the blue box and Ethan and Zoe told us about the green box. Mille, Emily, Kyle & Mylo told us about the green bin. Lily and Drew told us about the food caddy. The two Rory and Rory told us about the brown bin. Rory T and Alex told us about the compost box and Teya and Elsa about the compost bag.

Millie and Emily told us how they made a wormery and Mylo and Kyle told us a story about the Messy Magpie. Rory N and Zoe told us about what happened when they interviewed the janitor Mr Paton. Erika and Tom told us about the trip they went on. We learnt about the three Rs. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. At the end we sang a song.

I think they learned lots. And were delighted by all the parents and family who came to see them.

P.S. Obviously this was our Assembly so we didnt really mess up Gullane! But we did learn how to recycle.

Homework For Week Ending 10th May & Recycling Centre Visit

As it is a short week, there will be no homework apart from Reading. Pupils can also play SumDog or Mathletics, and they can also practise their Rainbow Common Words if they wish.

Pupils have been reminded to bring a jacket for their educational excursion Tomorrow, and they will have their snack before they go and lunch when they return.

Diary Dates

Here are the dates of some up and coming events –

Friday 26th April – Luffness Bake Sale
Monday 6th May – Holiday
Wednesday 8th May – Visit to Kinwegar Recycling Centre
Monday 20th May – Inservice Day
Thursday 30th May – P2/3 Assembly

A letter re the Educational Excursion went out with the pupil post. There is no cost involved as Waste Management Services have kindly arranged and paid for the bus.

We require some Parental Helpers. Please indicate on the slip if you can help.

Our Assembly Date has been changed from 16th of May to give us time to plan reporting back on our Recycling Visit and other things we have learned.

Opinions on Books & Scots Poems

P2/3 have been learning to give our opinions.  We said things we liked and didn’t like.

We were doing our opinions about Scots poems and books.  Rachel liked the Road Dahl book Matilda.  Anna’s favourite poem is A Dug A Dug.   My opinion was that I enjoyed Marissa the Science Fairy illustrations because I like fairy books.
