We have been enjoying music sessions with Mrs Borthwick over the last 2 weeks. It has been great fun learning some new songs and having fun!
In class we have also been some Scots songs like ‘3 craws’, ‘You cannae shuv you’re granny off a bus’ and ‘Culters Candy’.
It’s been a busy week in P2. We had our first Roots of Empathy session and met baby Charlie for the first time.
We made some ducks for our story of the week Quick Quack Quentin.
We had lots of fun before the Christmas holidays crafting, watching the polar express, going to the church and of course our Christmas Party!
This week we have been very busy keeping up with all our learning in phonics, maths and reading while squeezing in some Christmas Fun! We read the Christmas story and talked about why we celebrate Christmas.
Throughout the week we made some hot chocolate cones and gift tags. We made some little reindeer, Christmas cards and baubles using glass paint.
We had a visit from Mrs Dagg and Anne from RHET who spoke to us about crops and farming, then we made some reindeer food to take home and put out in Christmas Eve.
Our week was topped off by Lainey’s mum coming in to do some face painting for all the boys and girls. Mrs Rawlings from the nursery also helped out so no one missed out. They looked amazing and had huge smiles. (Thank you so much!) Finally we had a very special Christmas assembly planned by Miss Thorpe, with a special story read by Mr Guthrie, Mr Mitchell and Mrs Hamilton with some Christmas songs and festive cheer! It’s been a brilliant week.
Primary 2 pupils really enjoyed some time spent with P6 to share a story or two. Lots of great listening and talking. Building positive relationships throughout the school.
On Monday we ventured out into the woodland. We used natural materials to create a tale. We also found some wrappers and plastic. We discussed the dangers of these to animals that might live in a woodland area. The children said that animals might mistake these for food and try to eat them that could cause them damage. They also said the might use them to make their homes. Here are a few photos of our creations.
This week our story of the week was Room On the Broom. we enjoyed reading this story and sequencing the characters onto the broom.
We made some spooky witch pictures on Monday for Halloween.
In Emotion Works we were learning about the blue cog - regulation strategies. We made some cog flowers showing different way we would use to make ourself feel calmer or cheer us up.
This week our story of the week was the Rainbow Fish, we coloured our own rainbow fish and counted colours in maths.
We had lots of fun on Friday for Halloween. Everybody looked amazing in their costumes!
During our work on our Story of The Week this week (Elmer the Elephant) we had lots of discussions about being unique and talked about everyone being different. This led to some lovely writing about what makes us different and how we are the same .
We coloured in our own elephants later in the week with lots of different patterns and colours.
