We walked on the hard shoulder. The hard shoulder is for cars that have broken down. Oops did you spot that we were walking the wrong way.

 

Here are a few more….

Welcome to Primary 2!

Back to school image

I hope you all had a lovely summer. P2 have settled in so quickly that the holidays feel like a lifetime ago and I can’t believe it has been a whole year since they were starting as P1s.

 

We are all very impressed with how smart all the children are, that they remember their school routines and are all ready for a whole new year of learning.

The weather is very changeable at the moment so please remember to pack a raincoat in your child’s bag if they aren’t wearing one to school at the moment.

Here our plan for our first term.

P2 Term 1

Take a look at what we will be learning!

P1 – Winter Bird Feeders

We wanted to help the birds during winter because they find it harder to find food. So we have been following a recipe to make fat balls. We used our maths to make sure we followed the recipe in the right order and we used the right amount of the ingredients. We got to the 4th step. Our fat balls are now setting in the fridge. Our last step is to think carefully about where to hang them up in the playground.

We reused our milk cartons too!
