## 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)

## Goodbye Primary 1c!

What a fantastic year it has been for Primary 1c! Every single person has grown so much throughout the year not just through their education but personally too! We have grown in confidence and believe we can achieve anything we want if we try our best!

Have a wonderful summer holiday Primary 1! I cannot wait to see you all back when you are in Primary 2.

Take care, have lots of fun and be safe!

Lots of love

## Lots and Lots of Learning in 1c

You may think school is nearly finishing, but everyone in class has continued to learn so many new things just before we finish up for the year! We are keen learners!

In Math’s we have been exploring place value in numbers – tens and units. Also, we have learnt about the greater than and less than sign and how to use it in different situations.

We were working in pairs and asking each other to add together two digit numbers together. They were tricky at first but it is very easy now to complete!

Exploring greater and less than signs!

We have developed our knowledge for symmetry too! We created our own symmetrical paintings using any shapes we wanted.

For our topic space, we went on a Planet Adventure. We chose one planet we wanted to explore in depth by reading different books and facts and then created a poster for it.

Lastly, since we are fantastic authors, we created and completed our Space non-fiction book!

## Shape, Electricity and Space!

2D shape

We have been exploring the properties of 2D shapes and using them to create patterns and pictures.

Space

We used information books to do some research about space and have been having a go at spelling lots of Space words.

Electricity

We have been looking at the importance of electricity in our lives and how it is important to keep safe around electricity. We created some safety posters and looked at how electricity is used in a range of different places.

## Our Trip to the Science Centre

What a great day we had exploring the Science Centre! We used all our knowledge about Space and explored it through so many different activities. We even got to visit the Planetarium. It made some of us feel a little bit dizzy as the moving images spun around us.

Happy faces as we set off in the coach to the Centre!

This is where we began to learn about all the different planets in the Solar System! We also learnt about light pollution and what causes it!

Afterwards, we had enough time to investigate and explore all the different areas and activities within the Science Centre. What a great day everyone had!
