P2 Road Safety

Primary 2 have been learning about ‘Road Safety ‘ and spent last week discussing the focus of O NEED TO SPEED, based on this year’s Road Safety Week campaign. This week, we looked at how we can ‘Be Bright Be Seen‘ during the dark winter nights and what equipment could be useful when out walking or cycling.  We had great fun in the dark classroom, using a torch to shine on different pieces of clothing and equipment to see if they would be helpful to us or not.  We hope that everyone continues to wear bright clothing when out at night, find safe places to cross the road OR use The Green Cross Code to help them.

Sumdog Superstars

A massive WELL DONE to Advik and Aashmi who came in the top 10 students in the Edinburgh Sumdog Contest last week. Fantastic!

Our P2 class also came 14th overall. A big well done to all the other successful pupils and classes from Dalry who performed brilliantly #teamdalry

(Sumdog is a maths website used by schools all over the world. Your child has an account and can use it at home as well. It adapts as they learn so only help with questions not answers or you’ll end up doing S3 maths)

P2 Read Write Count Afternoon

To celebrate Book Week Scotland, P2 took part in a fun filled afternoon of literacy and numeracy activities based on the contents of their Read Write Count book bags. We had great fun playing card games, making up stories and creating a birthday cake for the character of Mole from the book ‘Rocketmole.’ We hope families enjoy these bags with their children and learn something new as well!!

Diwali in P2

To celebrate Diwali, P2 read the story of Rama and Sita, made paper Diya hanging decorations and drew Rangoli chalk patterns in the playground.  We especially enjoyed making our beautiful decorations and bringing them home to show our families.

P2 Scavengers

P2 had a fantastic time doing an Autumn Scavenger Hunt at Murieston Park this week. We searched for lots of autumn objects with a partner then had some fun playing the the park and doing some outdoor gym games to keep us warm. What a great morning! 😊

More P2 Symmetry

In class last week, P2 used different objects to create symmetrical pictures. We used numicon, floor tiles and small shapes to practise our skills as well as creating our own ‘butterflies’- an example of symmetry in the natural world. 🦋 Symmetry is all around us and we will explore this in the coming weeks.

P2 Autumn Symmetry

P2 explored symmetry further this week by going outside to make symmetrical pictures using natural items. Our class mini topic is ‘Autumn,’ so we used conkers, leaves and cones collected by the class to make our creations, just in time before the rain started.

P2 Recycling Task

As part of our Under the Sea topic we have been discussing and investigating pollution of our seas and oceans. As well as that, we have been discussing the effects of single use plastic and why it is important to recycle and reuse. 

Our task this week was to sort and organise a variety of items into different recycling bins. We worked hard to share jobs such as cutting and organising, as well as listening to our peers and their suggestions. How do you recycle at home?
