Welcome to the P1d class blog!

We have been learning all about ourselves and our community. One of our learning areas has been “The Senses”. Have a look at some of our pictures we took when we were discovering our sense of taste!

Summer Term 2015

Welcome back to P2/3!

As you are aware, Mrs Henderson is due to start Maternity Leave on Tuesday 5th May.  Mrs Innes will be teaching the class up until the summer holidays.  We also welcome back Miss Leavy for three weeks, starting on Monday 11th May.

We have lots to look forward to this term!  Our topic will be Transport and we will be taking part in lots of fun activities during Health Month.  Sports Day will be coming up too!

Hopefully we will have good weather for all our fun activities this term!

Enjoy the long weekend.

Swimming and New Faces!

The past few weeks have been busy in P2/3.  First of all we welcomed Miss Leavy to our class.  Miss Leavy is a Postgraduate Student at the University of Aberdeen and she will be working with us in P2/3 for the next few weeks and again in May.  P2/3 have been very kind, as usual, and are working hard with Miss Leavy on all sorts of lessons!

Miss Leavy is our PGDE student in P2/3.

We have also started our Swimming block at the Aquatics Centre.  The boys and girls have really enjoyed their time at swimming so far and we still have 3 weeks left!

Finally, we have a busy week of events this week as it is British Science Week.  Already, we have had local oil company Xodus in to run an Engineering Workshop and later this week we will be doing some work with P5/6 on the Solar Eclipse and a Magnet Workshop run by TechFest!

Here are some photos of our workshop on Friday:

Welcome to Primary 2/3

Hello there and welcome to P2/3’s brand new blog!

We have been very busy so far in Term 3 and have had some new friends join the class.  P2/3 have been very welcoming and friendly!

We have been working hard to earn Gems for our Gem Jar this term and have already had two treats.  The children had lots of fun at their extra Rainbow Time and Pyjama Party!  We have already filled the jar again and the children have chosen Movie Time as their treat.

We read Funny Bones and then put the skeletons back together!

Our topic this term is Books & Stories.  We have been reading different types of books and learning about all sorts of things from Our Bodies to Maps!  We’ve been making our own books too – P2/3 have their very own Rhyme Book and Book of Maps.  We have also just started an exciting project in Literacy and will be writing our very own Monster Story Books.  I’m sure you can’t wait to read them!

We used the World Map to label the countries that we are all from - Scotland, Poland, Latvia and Pakistan.

We read the book Paper Dolls by Julia Donaldson.  We worked together to make our own Paper Dolls - they look fantastic!

Last week, we had our UNICEF Day for Change.  The children had a fabulous time and got to speak to the RNLI, a real-life BBC Reporter and even got a look inside a fire engine!
