P2C Update – January 2017

It’s hard to believe that we are almost at the end of January already! The class have come back from the holidays ready to learn and have shown lots of enthusiasm in everything that we have been doing.  We started off the term with our Scots Week where we made our own tartans and designed kilts for Robert Burns.

Everyone made a huge effort to learn their poems and I was very impressed with the high standards in the class – thank you to everyone at home who supported the children with this.

This term we have a History focus looking at Life in the Past and are currently working on creating our own museum – more information to follow.  After the February break, we move on to a Health and Wellbeing focus looking at Keeping Healthy.

The class are currently preparing for their Class Assembly and we look forward to welcoming you into school on Friday 10thFebruary at 10.45 to share this with you.  Look out for invitations this week.


Doubles Dudes in P2C

We have been working really hard at learning our doubles and today we made Doubles Dudes to show our learning.  We challenged ourselves to think of small doubles (1-5) and doubles with bigger numbers (6-10 and beyond!)


Why not ask us at home to tell you what we know about doubles.dscf1216

P2C Learning Update

The boys and girls have made a great start to P2 this year.  They are enjoying using their Superhero Learning Powers to help them and have been learning about their local area.  The children have been using some thinking routines to help them share their thinking with others.  One of our favourites is “See…Think…Wonder”. We had to look at a map of Tranent and work with our partner to share our thinking. Continue reading “P2C Learning Update”

Welcome to Primary 2C

Welcome to our first post!

The class have settled in really well and are enjoying making new friends and exploring the Learning Areas in the classroom.  Everyone is really excited about our “Mapping My Local Area” learning and loved making maps of the classroom.  We had to imagine that we were birds flying across the room and think about what our classroom would look like from above.

We are making booklets about ourselves on a map and looked at a map of a town.  We had to talk about what we saw, thought and wondered about.  The ideas from the class were fantastic.  We can’t wait to finish our booklets and display them on our Learning Wall.
