P2/3’s Interesting Week!

On Monday we were visited by two special knights. They came from Dirleton Castle. We asked them lots of good questions and they told us lot of facts about castles and even let us see their weapons and armour.

We continued to learn new skills in basketball. We also learnt about the five positions on a basketball team. They are point guard, power forward, small forward, shooting guard and a center.

We are all really looking forward to our visit to Edinburgh Castle.

See you next week!

P2/3’s Epic Week

This week we all built our super castles. We used some cardboard with lots of other materials in small groups. Then we used paint and some tinfoil to decorate our castle.

Some of P2/3 got their very first chapter book. We were very happy to get one!

This week we started to look at fractions in maths while still continuing with our numeracy.

Happy St Patrick’s Day from all of P2/3 and Miss Torley.

See you next week!

P2/3’s Super Week

This week we had some special visitors on Tuesday and Wednesday. Some of our mum’s and dad’s came to see how we learn. Some of the learning we were doing in class was numeracy (counting in 2s and 3s, arrays of 2’s and 3’s, adding and subtracting between 10 and 20). Our parents also got to see us writing our instructions as part of our class learning focus.

We did lots of reading in our groups and we really like our new books!

With Mrs Thompson on Thursday we did abstract art which was lots of fun and very colourful.

See you next week!

P2/3’s Amazing Week.

Here are a few of the activities we have been doing this week!

The boys and girls of primary 2 and 3 went to Mass for Ash Wednesday. We found out that Ash Wednesday is the start of Lent.

In our gym time we started to learn about basketball. This week we were improving our passing and dribbling skills before playing a match in two teams. We learnt about a chest pass and a bounce pass.

Our new learning focus is castles and knights. In small groups we drew a life sized knight and we decided as a group what materials to use to create the knight for example metallic paint, tissue paper and silver foil. Have a look at the picture to see what it looks like now it’s finished.

We are all now book detectives and are starting to learn about the different jobs we are going to have. This week we were all the summariser. We also have a cool picture of us on our new book detective’s wall.

See you next week!!


New Year, New JRSOs!

Congratulations to the newest batch of JRSOs as they embark on their quest to promote safe and active travel within St. Marys! After almost all of the Primary 6 pupils submitted an application for one of the few positions available, the boys and girls chosen were:

Luca Maccagnano-Lugton (P6/7), Eva Doherty (P5/6), Amie Ferguson (P5/6), Andrew Larkman (P6/7) and Sophie Robertson (P5/6).

They have already attended an induction event held by East Lothian Council and have surveyed the school pupils for the ‘Hands Up’ Scotland Survey. Keep an eye on the website for more details of their contributions!
