We took advantage of the bright weather and took our learning outside this morning.  Have a look at us drawing around our shoes.   These drawings are very important as we are going to use them to measure objects in our school.  When we are finished doing that, we are going to use cubes, paper clips and handspans to do the same!

Today, both Primary 2 classes came together for some inclusion time.   It was a great opportunity to get to know one another.  We began by breaking into small groups to introduce ourselves and talk about what we like.  We then had a wee boogie to a very apt song “Happy” because we were very happy to make

new friends and find out what makes each one of us very special.
