Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas to everyone at St. Martin’s. Have a lovely holiday and I hope you all get the present you ask for. Be kind to your families and friends and try to be helpful at this very busy time of the year. On Christmas Day try to say a prayer to the Baby Jesus to help those people who may be feeling sad or lonely.
See you all in January. Happy New Year 2012!!!! From Mrs Sharp X

Good morning Primary 2

Good morning Primary 2,

I hope you are all enjoying the snow and that you have been able to build some lovely snowmen! However, I think some of you may be a little bored by now. Why not try some Maths and Literacy games on www.ictgames.com? I’m sure you will be able to show everyone at home how it works.

You could also complete your reading books and practise your common words. If you still have time after all that, could you please make a list of all of the technology you use in your home eg. hoover, washing machine etc? This will help your work when you return to school.

Finally, a little challenge. Miss McKay left Prestonpans for school yesterday morning at 7.30am. What time do you think she arrived at school? The closest guess may get a prize!

Stay safe and see you all soon,

Miss McKay

P2 – New Term

Primary 2 have now settled back in to the new term.  This term we very excited to be learning all about our local environment in our new topic ‘The Street’.  In the next few weeks we will be going out and about to learn about Tranent.  So keep an eye out!  We have also started our new science topic ‘Looking After Living Things’.  We have been finding out lots of interesting facts about plants and animals and can’t wait to have a go at growing our own plants!  If anyone has any expertise in our new topics we would love to hear from you.

P2 Christmas Celebrations

Welcome to the Primary 2 blog.  We are very excited about the festive season and have been doing lots to celebrate this special time of year.  We did a fantastic Christmas assembly last week celebrating all our favourite Christmas traditions including Rudolph the red nose reindeer and the birth of Baby Jesus.  We have also worked very hard on the Christmas Nativity, ‘Jesus in a Manger’ and earned a well deserved 10 for our perfect performance. We can’t wait for our Christmas party where we can let our hair down and have lots of fun!
