Matha and Oliwia

Once upon a time Matha and Oliwia went on a adventure. They found a box. The box was on the top of a hill. They climbed up to the top of the hill. They took the box home. They opened the box. There was gold coins. They went to the shops and got some carrots. They ate all of the carrots. They played Tig and then they went to a party. It was Oliwia’s mum that had a party. Then they all went to bed. They dreamed about carrots.

We have been learning about animals this term and the P3s have made these fantastic animal print pictures and frames with Mrs Mcleod. Don’t they look superb?!?!

















P2/3 went on a fantastic trip toHolyrood Palace last week. We were given the opportunity to explore some copied artefacts to see what life was like for rich and poor people 400 years ago. Then we had a tour of the palace itself to see what it would be like to live as a King or Queen! We had a great adventure and it was awesome to look around the Queen’s own bedroom – even though she wasn’t in!


















P2/3 had a really busy finish to the first term!


We were involved in the infant department’s YMI production of IronMan.We worked with Louise to learn Iron Man songs and also managed to write our own song about Iron Man having his tea. When we had finished we got to perform our musical to our Mums and Dads. It was a fantastic experience!


Health Week was great too! We were active and healthy all week long and learned so much about staying fit and living a healthy lifestyle! Highlights for P2/3 were learning the Circus skills and playing golf. Great fun!

Primary 2/3 Health week and Iron Man Click here to look at a PowerPoint about our health week



P2 got a visit from santa, they got lots of presents, they also had their chirstmas party.

P2a have been working on hinduisum and have been working very hard!

We are in primary 2a now please look on this page to see what we are doing in class.

Snow in the Playground

On Tuesday P2a went out in the playground to build an igloo with the snow. We made it quite big. The snow felt extremely cold. We wore a hat, scarf, gloves, wellie boots and a jacket. It was really hard to lift the big snow as it had turned to ice. It was sparkling in the sun. The snow and ice was very deep. It was really hard to get up so we had to use our feet to get it out. It was like being in Narnia!

Hope you are all enjoying having a few extra days off to play in the snow and to join in the Burgh Snow Challenge. After Christmas we will be doing a science topic on the weather so why don’t you get someone at home to take a few photographs of you having fun in the snow – sledging, building snowmen or having snowball fights.

How about a few snow and ice experiments to keep you going? You will need an adult to help you.

Experiment 1: Frozen bubbles
Try this experiment for soapy fun. Using soap bubbles, you’ll turn them into frozen bubbles.

What You’ll Need:
Measuring cup, Soap powder, Sugar, Hot water, Bowl, Spoon or whisk , Bubble wand

Make a strong bubble solution. Mix 1/2 cup soap powder, 1/2 cup sugar, and 3 cups hot water. (This mixture will help the bubbles last longer.) Take the bubble solution and a bubble wand outside. Blow a bubble, and catch it on the wand. Let the bubble sit resting on the wand in the cold air. In the below-freezing chill, the bubble will soon freeze into a fragile crystal ball.

Experiment 2: Snowscape stomp
Why not make winter white a little warmer by doing the Snowscape Stomp!

What You’ll Need:
Snow boots, Tablespoon, Paintbrushes, Food coloring, Paper cups, Water
Mix 2 tablespoons water with 10 drops food coloring in a paper cup (make as many colors as you desire). Go outside and make a pattern of footprints in the snow. Splatter splashes of color in each frosty track, and watch the magic begin. Be sure to check for chilly changes later as the snow begins to melt and the colors soften. Remember that food coloring stains so wear old clothes.
Experiment 3: Snow and Salt
Why not see what happens when salt is sprinkled on snow.

What You’ll Need:
2 identical containers (plastic cups or jam jars will do fine), snow, salt
Fill the 2 containers with snow. Sprinkle salt onto one of the containers. What happens to the snow? Which container is quickest? Why?
Experiment 4: What is snow?
What exactly is white fluffy snow?

What You’ll Need:
1 container, snow, thermometer (optional)

Fill the container with snow. Place the thermometer in the container and take the temperature and write it down. Bring the glass inside and wait for about 5 minutes until the snow melts. Now, take the temperature again. What has happened to the snow? What interesting fact can you tell the class about snow?

P2 have been reading with thier big buddies in P7. They enjoy reading with their big buddies and are looking forward to becoming good friends.

P2 held their assembly on Friday 5 November 2010. They shared what they had discovered about dinosaurs and they sung songs. They have worked very hard on their assembly and everyone spoke clearly. A lot of the Primary 2 parents attended the assembly and they all thought it was great because they learned more about dinosuars than they knew before.

Primary 2 have been getting their fingers greener in the newly named garden – The Toadstool Village. Pupils in P2a and P2b were helping the Garden Crew to weed the beds in preparation for planting. Whilst we were weeding and clearing leaves we were able to spot some of the worms, ladybirds and other insects living in The Toadstool Village.

Plese scroll down to see us at work and play.


Primary 1a made flower arrangements and gave them to the residents of mansefield court.
We have been learning how to use the laptops with Mrs Wilson
We know how to open up the laptop, switch it on and use the special password to log in. We also know how to log out and shut down the laptop.

“we have been playing games. I like the Fripple game. It is really good because you can find the Fripple that the customer wants” (Paul Corrigan).
