Friday 5th June
As part of our homework task this week the children had to find out about homes around the world. Many of the children produced fantastic models of various types of houses and they all enjoyed sharing their findings with the class. Thanks for all the hard work.
In science the children were using their sense of taste to identify which foods tasted bitter, sweet, sour or salty. Sweet came out as the most popular taste and few enjoyed the sour lemons!
Due to the better weather we were able to enjoy our P.E lessons outside.
Remember no school on Monday.
Friday 15th May
We have been very busy this week thinking about ideas for next Friday’s assembly. The children have decided to base it on Houses and Homes and seem excited about presenting their work to the school.
On Thursday we had a visit from the Fire and Rescue Service. They talked to the children about fire safety and the importance of having smoke alarms fitted within the home. The class were then shown inside and around a fire engine, which was very exciting!
This term we are looking at functional writing and the task this week was to draw and write instructions about how to plant seeds. The work the children produced was fantastic!

What an exciting end to last week! Thank you for all your support in helping the children to complete the homework task about their own special hero.
We have been very busy this week thinking about different types of houses and homes we find in this country and learning about the sense of sight in science. We have been researching both topics using non-fiction books and the internet.
In art we have created some lovely pictures of street scenes and today we made clay tile houses, which will then be painted and displayed.
Friday 20th March
Hope everyone has recovered from a very busy and energetic Health Week. The children enjoyed the activities, especially the fruit tasting and learning the 1960s dance.
This week the children have written some fantastic imaginary stories about Katie Morag. I am looking forward to putting them on display so everyone can see their great efforts.
We have also learned about schools in the 1950s and how they compare with those today. Next Tuesday afternoon we will be creating a 1950s classroom with 1950s lessons, should be fun!
Friday 27th February
Welcome back and I hope everyone had a great holiday!
This week the class especially enjoyed watching a video about the toys and games children played in the 1950s. We then went outside into the playground and experienced some of these activities. The chalk drawings, skipping and clapping games were particularly popular.
In art, the children have produced fantastic observational drawings of various minibeasts and colourful 3D butterflies which will soon be hanging in the class.
Look forward to meeting all the parents on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
Welcome back after a lovely holiday. We hope that everyone had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year. Primary 2 have got back into their work and school life quickly and with a very sensible attitude. The first week of term saw every child in P2 gaining all their Golden Time. A great start to the new year. We hope that this keeps up.
We are now learning about history and looking at ‘When Grandad was a boy’. We are looking forward to interviewing our Grandparents and have been creating interview questions for them.
October to December
This term Primary 2 welcome Miss Budd to the school. Miss Budd will be teaching in P2 for 5 weeks and is busy helping the P2’s to create their own street of people and families. P2 have already enjoyed a taster session of Judo and are looking forward to beginning their Nativity Performance for Christmas.
In Maths we will be focusing on money and will be creating shops and cafes in order to practice using money in a real context.
In ICT we will be learning how to use Splosh and Pictogram as well as using Education City and digitial cameras.
In Art we are looking at colour mixing and will be using paints as our main media for artwork. We have already begun creating fruit baskets and are looking forward to putting them together and adding pictures of them to our webpages.

Week Ending 14th November 2008
What a busy week! A quick entry to say thank you for all your support in helping the children bring in items/photos/stories about People Who Help Us. The children are learning so much from these real experiences. The class got into the spirit of Children in Need and enjoyed the pyjama activities which included maths, art and dancing! Thank you to all children and parents who made a donation. Have a lovely weekend.
The class have been working hard on their ideas of the Toy Box story and on their patterns. They have begun discussing and identifying people in their lives that help them and have also made a great effort in their independent writing this week.
