Book Week – Primary 2

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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!

Room 6 Burns Supper

Last week Room 6 completed their interdisciplinary topic on Burns by having a Burns Supper and Scottish food tasting session.

The children tasted a range of Scottish foods including Haggis, neeps and tatties, tablet, shortbread, oatcakes and smoked salmon all washed down with a wee dram (of Irn Bru). The children recorded which of the foods they enjoyed and those they disliked. There was singing, dancing and a cheers to Robert Burns!

 

Learning in Room 6!

This week we have had so much fun learning our spelling and phonics words. We used paint to practice fine motor skills and spell at the same time.

In Maths we have been learning number bonds and counting within 100. We used lots of active games and hands on practice to improve our skills.

In IDL we were researching the people who live in the Rainforest and found out that they often paint their faces or bodies during celebrations. This inspired us to make our own masks in Art.

Learning update from Room 6!

Food & Nutrition

What a tasty start to the week.  We tasted four different kinds of cheeses.  Some we liked and some we weren’t so keen on!  Our favourite was Brie!

P.E. 

In P.E. we have been learning new skills.  We have been learning to throw and catch accurately.  We kept trying even when it was tricky.

Literacy

We have been writing sentences using this weeks phonemes ‘qu’ & ‘ai’.

Health & Wellbeing

We have been learning about cookers and how to stay safe. We cook with the hob, we make toast in the grill and cakes in the oven.

What’s the Favourite Cheese in Room 3?

Room 3 took part in cheese tasting on Monday afternoon to end their topic on milk and dairy.  They tried French Brie, Mozzarella, Red Leicester and spreadable cheese which they had with breadsticks and crackers. Everyone really enjoyed this experience and decided that Red Leicester was their favourite.
