P3A December Update

We have had a busy term and wanted to tell you a wee bit about it. We worked in our              Co-operative Learning teams to write our comments.

We have been learning about the moon changing shape. It doesn’t change shape but the part we can see does. The sun is bigger than the Earth and you should not look right at the sun. We visited Dynamic Earth.
Matthew, Megan, Ronnie

We are learning about space and the Christmas story. We are also learning Scottish Country dancing in P.E. and we danced at our party today. We are loving P3! We are especially liking    Co-operative Learning and we enjoyed our trip. We are very fast at the daily mile.

We went to Dynamic Earth and had fun, we went to the dome. The Christmas performance was fun and good because there was nice singing and everyone was good at the French song. In science we learnt that the sun is bigger than the Earth.

We have been doing maths, we learn about add, take away and times. We have buddies every Thursday. We did science about space. We know that the moon goes round the Earth and the Earth goes round the sun. We have had Circle Time about respect. We do daily mile, we try to do six laps of the big playing field. We do dancing in P.E. with Mr Ferns. We went on our school trip in November. We went to Dynamic Earth.

January Update for P2D

Primary 2D have made a great start to 2017! We have been thinking about examples of symmetry in nature and completing patterns to make them symmetrical . We have been really enjoying our Scots focus.  It has included dancing the Canadian Barn Dance and hearing some well known stories with a Scots twist. ‘We’re Gangin on a Bear Hunt…We’re no feart!’ was great fun to join in with. We have been learning about Robert Burns and beginning to think about how different life in Scotland was when he was alive. It has been a pleasure to hear the children recite and sing their chosen poems, thank you for working on them at home. We plan to have our next update come directly from the children (with a bit of typing from Mrs Kinnoch!)
