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 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.

The Clan Chiefs are hard at work judging the entries to the Easter Egg contest, which will be announced later today.
We have been overwhelmed by the number and quality of the entries this year, especially given we weren’t able again to have a judging in school thanks to the pandemic. Hopefully next year we can do that again, especially given the amazing work by all entrants this year.
The boys and girls in Primary 2 have been busy measuring this week by making potions in groups and pretending to be builders and architects by calculating the length of objects. We have also been comparing weight and length by investigating whether something is heavier or lighter and longer or shorter with practical activities.
We really enjoyed making a mixture of love potions, stretchy potions and invisibility potions 🧪 🧫
