P2B Class Bog Friday 9th November 2018

This week in our writing Miss Murchie’s group were describing what we did on a trip to space. We used WOW words to describe what we could see, smell, touch, taste and hear.  Mr. McMillan’s writing group used WOW words to describe what we could see, hear, smell and touch.  We used pictures to help us imagine what we would experience.

In science we have been learning about senses. We have 5 senses, they are; smell, taste, sight, touch and hear.  This week we took a close look at the eye.  We learnt what the different parts of the eye are called and what they do.  Then we had different activities where we had to use our eye to solve the puzzles and find the answer.

In P.E we have been learning football skills. This week we worked on our dribbling and control skills and passing skills.  We used the inside of our feet to pass and dribble the ball and we used the bottom of our foot to control and stop the ball.

In maths the squares have been using right angles to follow directions. This week we have been following directions using a map and writing directions.  The triangles have been doing calculations to find the missing number.  The hexagons have been using money and have been making amounts with the coins.  We have been calculating how much change we should get after buying something.  The circles have been calculating numbers to 12.

We have started a new topic about our bodies and how to keep them healthy. This week we looked at the Eatwell plate and learnt about the different types of foods and how they keep our bodies healthy.

In French we have been learning about the names of colours and how to pronounce them.

Next week will be our class assembly. We have been working very hard this week, practising our words and song.  We hope to see you next Friday at our assembly.

We have been learning a new skill in reading; skimming. Skimming is when you use clues (like the pictures, heading and key words) to find out the meaning of the text.

We have been doing football in P.E. We developed our foot control skills when dribbling the ball.

In ICT with Mrs. Fry we drew a picture of a house.

In maths, the squares have been learning about right-angles and finding right-angles in our environment, the hexagons have been learning about money, the triangles have been learning about shapes and patterns and the circles have been learning calculations and adding numbers.

Art and maths


As part of our work on Houses and Homes we created some paintings. We made a silhouette of different types of houses and tinted the paint to make the sky.



After sitting so well at Assembly, we had some active mental maths.  We flossed, dabbed, jogged and jumped to show the answers.


This week we have also worked on subtraction and linking addition facts and beginning to work on money.


You’ll be able to see our wonderful work in our jotters that some home today (Friday 5th October).

In science we have been creating waterproof and windproof houses. We tested them by putting a sponge inside and then blowing on them with a hairdryer and a splashing water on them with a water spray to see if they worked.

We have been practicing throwing and catching in P.E with Mr. McMillan and Miss Murchie, we did lots of different throwing and catching games. With Mr Judge we played some movement games out in the MUGA.

We have been doing lots of predicting this week. Predicting is when you take a guess and you use the information you have to make it accurate.

We created road safety posters in writing which were for a competition. We had to include; bright colourful pictures, a slogan, neat writing and a clear message about road safety.

For our social studies topic ‘Houses and Homes’ we created our own floor plan for a house. We had to fit rooms, like a jigsaw in to the house and had to make sure people living in the house could move from room to room.

In maths we have been; measuring distance, finding the missing number, adding, and making patterns with 2D shapes.

Maths, predicting and house building in P2a



This week we took some maths out into our garden before it got too wet!

“Mrs Allan hid the answers to the maths outside.” (J.B)    “It was a scavenger hunt.” (A.D)  “It spelled out SUM HUNT” (K.F) “It was really fun.” (J.F)

“We were measuring the hut in metres and centimetres” (A.T) “We measured how long it was” (J.R)


We have also been using our predicting skills by watching films, looking at pictures and reading stories.


In Social Studies, we have been pretending to be house builders by making a plan. “We were sticking in paper to make the front of a house”. Some of thought it was harder than it looks to fit all the bits in…

Hello from Primary 2a!

We have settled into our new classroom and we are all enjoying learning new things in Primary 2a.


This term, we will be looking at houses and homes.  We have learned about different types of houses in Newton Mearns and other homes like teepees and castles!


As you can see in PE, we have been developing our balancing skills and jumping to make different shapes.


In Expressive Arts, we tried playing percussion loudly and quietly while watching a film clip of a thunderstorm. Playing quietly sounded like raindrops and we played loudly to sound like thunderclaps. (John)
