P2A Space Explorers

Over the last few weeks primary 2a have been working hard on our space topic.

We have explored life on the international space station, investigated the planets, stars and moons in our solar system and learnt lots about how astronauts prepare for their journeys into space!
Last week we speculated about aliens… Do they exist? We don’t think so but we decided to make some Play-Doh versions ourselves have a look!

We also collected lots of recycling materials to create our very own rockets. We worked together in small teams to build the best rocket we could.

Make sure to take a look at our fabulous space pictures made with paper cuttings and oil pastels outside our classroom!

Children as Human Rights Defenders Project

Last school year, as part of the Children as Human Rights Defenders project, which leds up to the participation of Members of Children’s Parliament in the UN Day of General Discussion 2018, P5 (then P4) took part in a children’s right workshop. Many of these happened across Scotland.

Thanks to Children’s Parliament for organising and sharing the video of this event.

P2a People Who Help Us

P2A are beginning their new topic and are very excited!

We have started to learn about “People who Help Us”. We have lots of dressing up clothes, are planning lots of excellent drama activities and are looking forward to learning more about what to do in a an emergency.

As well as this we are also planning to look at other people who help us every day as part of their jobs. The children are coming up with new ideas every day – make sure to ask them all about it.
