We are really proud of how well we are doing with our Spelling Elephants. Some pupils are on really difficult ones.
Yesterday afternoon we went outside with our P4 reading buddies and we had a Teddy Bear’s picnic. We had made lovely cup cakes with Mrs McDonald and decorated them with special icing and chocolate hearts. We also had fun blowing bubbles and playing with our bears. We have been working in the garden with Mrs McDonald and next week she will be asking us to help her plant Busy Lizzies to make the school ground look good.
We say goodbye to Sophie Glen today as she is starting at a new school next week. Lots of her friends from Primary 2 will keep in touch with her. We wish Maci a super holiday as she heads off for Haggerston castle this weekend.
Completed jotters will be coming home this weekend and next week. There will be no homework next week. Please make sure all library books and school reading books are returned next week.
We watched the P 4,5,6, and 7 school show this week. We thought it was good because of the Disney theme. We really like the disco lights. Daniella and everyone else in the class thought it was really good fun.
We went on our school trip to the Royal Botanic Gardens on Thursday. We saw plants that looked like rocks. We saw a real pineapple plant, a banana tree and a vanilla plant We liked seeing the plant that eats insects. We saw lost of cacti.. We enjoyed eating our picnic lunch with our bears, then we went to see the oldest tree in the gardens and the tallest trees which come from America. We played a game of tig and corners under the sequoia trees. On our way back to the coach we visited the Chinese pagoda. We felt tired by the time we got back to school.

To learn about the Romans we have watched some Horrible Histories videos about the Roman army and the story of Caligula attacking Britain, which made us laugh. We have been learning about what the Roman’s ate.
This Tuesday we did our P2 Assembly. It was all about ‘I Wonder Why’. Sophie Glen says ‘It was really fun’. Daniella liked doing our assembly. Jessie was nervous but she spoke loud and clearly.

We have listened to the story of Romulus and Remus who are said to have started the city of Rome. We have found out about Latin and we can say ‘Salve’ which means hello!
We made collages of Roman soldiers using cardboard, red and black paper, and silver foil.
Primary 2 have started to learn more about telling the time and enjoyed an interactive white board game moving the clock hands to show the right time.

We wrote sums this week around our favourite number and began to make up our own word problems using them. Keeley’s favourite number was 15 because that’s how old her cousin is.
This week we have been very happy to welcome Archie Davies to our class. He has been really nice to everyone in the class. Logan Munro thinks he is a little bit shy. He passed his first Spelling Elephant on his first week with us!
This week is World Book Week and we decorated our classroom door with a Horrid Henry book cover. Horrid Henry is our topic so that is why we picked him. Some pupils brought books to swap with others and we have enjoyed our Stop and Read times.
As part of book week we have been working with other classes to write stories. Some of us have read our stories to the other children and they liked our ideas.
Mrs Bagnall is very pleased with our reading. We even managed to read Horrid Henry word problems for our maths. We have been learning about halves.
