Book Week – Primary 2

We have the busiest time this week, immersing ourselves in all things Literacy for Book Week. We have been focusing on Traditional Tales and the children have done lots of Drama using the story box and props to make up their own stories.

As a link to Hansel and Gretel, the children made their own bread and watched how the yeast made the dough rise.

Next up was the Readathon and book swap, which were both a huge success. The class loved exploring all the different books and getting to take a new one home, as well as getting to read with some of the older children.

The children worked hard together in pairs, to create their own touchy – feely books and loved presenting their homework projects to the class. Check out our display outside the class on your way past. Well done everyone!

Dancing in Rm 17!

As part of book week, we have been learning about the classic story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.  In PE, we were working in groups to make up dances to the ‘Oompa Loompa’ song.  We had a lot of fun creating our dances and enjoyed performing them to the class.
