Primary 2 have had a very busy week learning lots of new things. We are enjoying our new puppet show topic and are having fun making different kinds of puppets.

We have been reading and writing about  story settings and learning about adjectives and verbs. Spelling for this week was tricky for some children as so many have been absent. I am glad to say that everyone was back on Friday and tried hard with their words.  

Numeracy this week included finding the missing number in between two numbers. For example 45__47    78__76. 

The children have been busy learning their Scottish poems. It will be very hard to decide which children will perform at the Scottish assembly on Thursday. They are all trying very hard to pronounce the words, remember the poem and add expression. They are doing very well. 

I have put a request in the newsletter for tissues as stocks are running low in the class. Please send in a box if possible. 

We are planning to put on some mini puppet shows and the children will be creating a simple backdrop for their show. Any budding artists out there who would like to support us with this are more than welcome to come in. Just let me know at the door if you can help.
