In P2a we have been learning about Captain Robert Scott, a famous Scottish explorer.

We enjoyed painting Antarctica backgrounds and drawing Scott’s ship.  It was called “The Discovery,” and we learned that it is now a museum ship in Dundee.

Our favourite activity was taking part in PEPASS Physical literacy with Mr Penman and some of our parents.

Our Learning in P2b

In Social Studies we have been learning about dinosaur. We have been comparing different types of dinosaur- Stegosauruses had spikey backs. A T-rex would have hard skin and sharp teeth.

We have also learned about when dinosaurs lived. We know they lived millions of years ago because they are now fossils which we can look at.

In Literacy we have been learning about ‘ay’. We have learned how to make words out of ay.

We have enjoyed learning ways to add in numeracy. We have learned that putting the bigger number first helps us to add quicker and easier.

Caoimhe- I enjoyed couting from 1 to 7.
