P2/3 have two lovely new friends, we spent time getting to know each other and welcoming them into our class. To get to know each other we had a circle time and talked about our holidays and our favourite things.
We really like our new IDL minibeasts learning focus. We like learning about the creatures and like our new minibeast investigation lab. We have to wear safety goggles as we are scientists in the lab.
In maths we started to learn about measurement and used our hand spans, pencils and feet etc. to measure different items in our classroom.
In gym we did some relay racing. We had to run as fast as we could then pass the baton to the next person when we got back to the starting point. We kept going until the whistle went.
This week we visited Edinburgh Castle as part of our class focus learning. We got to see the prisons in the castle, the Lang Stairs and the Honours of Scotland. The prisoners left lots of artefacts behind including what they had engraved onto the thick wooden prison doors. During one exhibition there were waxwork models of blacksmiths doing their work. We got to go into the Royal Apartments and see were King James VI and I was born! It was a very small room. Some of us even managed to hear the 1 o’clock cannon go off!
We learnt about the Easter Story before making our Easter cards!
We had our last week of basketball. We played lots of matches in teams. It was great fun and we got to use all of the skills we have been learning all at the same time.
We gave an amazing performance to our mums and dads playing the steel pans. We worked very hard to learn where the notes are on the steel pans. Miss Torley thought we were SUPER!!!
Recently, the children found 2 eggs in the nursery. We all talked about what might be inside, and waited patiently…
When we came back after the weekend, we found 2 little baby dinosaurs, and we planned what we would like to find out about them.
We found out information using books and the internet. We measured bones, and sticks, and dinosaur feet!
We created stories, and art work all about what we had learned.
