Welcome to P2!
Welcome to the Primary 2 webpage which will be updated throughout the year with our class curriculum and news, updates and photographs of the exciting things that we have been getting up to.
We thrive on learning through play both inside and outside the classroom. This gives us a real opportunity to practise and extend our skills on problem solving, investigating, designing, cooperation, communication and teamwork, just to name a few. No challenge is too great for our P2’s!
Throughout the year, in our fantastic topics, we explore our local woodlands in autumn, we discover how our houses are made, we go on an adventure to a winter wonderland, we understand the importance of water and finally we take to the seaside and learn all about the animals that live there.
Take a closer look at all the fun things have been up to already this year!
Term 1 in Primary 2!
A very big welcome to all our new P.2’s. Everyone has settled in so well and we are very excited about the year ahead. We have been enjoying what’s left of our summer weather and have loved playing outside and catching up with our friends.
We have been super busy already this term! We are learning all about Elmer the Patchwork elephant. We listened to lots of stories about Elmer and his friends. We can all now draw our own elephants too! We are designing our own elephant for the parade on the interactive whiteboard and enjoying some finger painting. In maths we have been looking at pattern. We can create our own pattern and even spot and fix mistakes in patterns. You can’t trick us! We know that Elmer loves blackberries, so we’ve decided to do some blackberry picking too! What will we do with all these blackberries? Keep looking to find out. Along the way we will be spotting signs that Autumn is coming.
Our next topic is ‘Down to the woods in Autumn.’ We will be learning all about what happens in nature during Autumn time, how animals prepare for winter and many more exciting things. We can’t wait to get outside and explore the school grounds and other local woodlands. We might have to enjoy some yummy snacks around the fire pit to keep us cosy.
Keep an eye out for photo updates to see how P.2. get on ‘Down in the Woods.’ There may be some interesting creatures living there…has anyone ever heard of a Gruffalo?
