Robin found a big flock birds and she flew with them to Bethlehem. She found a special baby called Jesus. Mary and Joseph were in a stable. A star guided people to the stable. Angels told people about the baby and guided them to the stable. Three wise men, camels, shepherds and sheep all followed the star to visit the baby. It took them all a long time to get there. Some of them had to travel 2,000 miles. It was very tiring and sometimes they had to rest. The birds could travel quickly because they didn’t have to follow roads.
Nicola from the library came to visit us because we are learning about our community. We wrote about her visit.
To help us celebrate World Book Day, the children in the Early Stages are being encouraged to tell us about their favourite books. On Thursday 7th March the boys and girls in Primary 1 to 3 can, if they wish, bring in a copy of their favourite book or can draw a picture of/tell us about their favourite characters/events in a story/non-fiction book. We will, as always, have lots of books in our class libraries for the children to read also.
Many thanks for your support with this.

Primary 2PY have been working hard over the last couple of weeks to create the buildings we want and need in South Queensferry out of junk.
Today they put their junk models together to create the whole town. Primary 2 were very proud of their work and have taken it home for them to keep.
Today Primary 2 had a visit from the librarian at Queensferry Library. We have found out about Nicola’s role in the library as well as telling us how to take a book home.
P2HM loved their trip to Dynamic Earth today. We found out all sorts of things about the weather. Take a look at some of our learning.
We found out that hot air rises. This is why we get wind and rain.
We used tornado bottles to find out what a real tornado looks like. We saw that the bottom of a tornado is much faster than the top.
We found out that lightening is electric.
We found out what electricity does to metal objects with air inside them.
I can’t believe this is already our last term in primary 2. All the children have grown up so much! Take a look at our parent’s plan to find out what we will be doing during this last term.Parents’ Guide Apr-Jun 2018
