P1/2 and P2 Roots of Empathy News

P1/2 Miss McDermot’s class and P2 Miss McArthur’s class completed their Roots of Empathy program with instructor Mrs Harris-Toner. Each week the children enjoyed getting to know Baby Alan and seeing how he was changing and growing. We connected with our Roots of Empathy family through wonderful photos, videos, news and voice messages sent by his mum Jordan.


The lessons gave the children an opportunity to share their feelings and experiences. The children’s especially enjoyed the art activities and thinking of their wishes for Baby Alan as he grows up. Last week the children were delighted to receive their well deserved certificates. 

Van Gogh Sunflowers in P2

We have been very successfully growing sunflowers in our classroom this term. Already they are stretching high and reaching for all the sun we’ve had! Furthermore, we learned a bit about Vincent Van Gogh and recreated one of his most famous paintings ‘Sunflowers.’ 

Here are some examples of the wonderful sunflowers we painted and some very proud faces 😊

Proud of Scotland

Dalry Primary all united to watch Scotland on Monday and while the result wasn’t what we wanted the children were proud of seeing Sotland represented on the big stage.

They also got a mini pie and a mini pint (of fruit juice!) at half time.

Let’s hope Scotland can qualify still and good luck to all our families and staff supporting other teams in the tournament.

P2 Outdoor Fractions

P2 took advantage of the sun this week and did our fractions work outside in the playground. We had to work cooperatively with our partners to make our fraction dice then we used these to play a game call ‘Roll a Fraction.’ The winner was the person who got 5 correct first.  Although the wind kept blowing our dice away, we still had lots of fun!

P2 Fractions

P2 have started a new topic in maths about Fractions. This week we tried drawing lines on 2D images to cut them into halves, we played a games- including fraction bingo and a game where we had to build pizzas using halves, quarters and thirds. We have also been identifying the fraction of shapes coloured in and sorting them into hoops.
