Here is a little Update about what P2 got up to before the Easter holidays:
We continued learning about Our Community and invited local firefighters into school to tell us all about their role in keeping us safe. We learned a lot and even got to try using the hose!
We invited our parents and careers into school to our Reading Collective event. We read ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ 🐛 then played games and did crafts all about the content of the story.
We were happy to welcome some visitors into our classrooms last term. Angela from Changeworks taught us all about recycling and how important it is for our planet, she also took us on a litter pick in our playground to help us take action. Fran from the Seabird Centre taught us all about plastic pollution and ways we, and others, can try to combat it.
We continued our Young Readers project last term by gifting our first book – thank you to the primary 5s for helping us to read and enjoy them!
Primary Engineer – Leadership Award
“If you were an engineer, what would you do?”
We answered this question by thinking of a problem we face in our lives and designing a product which could solve it. We entered our work into Primary Engineer’s competition, there are a few examples below.
Play and Learning
Of course, we learned a lot last term through play and classroom activities too!
Primary 3 did a super job hosting their open afternoon for parents and carers today. They showcased their Ancient Egyptian artwork, performed a song and a dance and sampled some food that would have been popular during Ancient Egyptian times!
Thank you to all parents and carers who were able to attend and thank you for the positive feedback about the afternoon.
Primary 3 enjoyed making models of the River Nile this afternoon. We worked well as teams to create a river that would hold water!
