Homework w/b 17/2/20

Hello everyone,

Please find Primary 2 homework and reminders below.

At some point over the next few weeks, your child will take home an animal from the Rainforest. As part of our rainforest topic, children have been asked to write a small diary entry detailing what the animal got up to when they took them home. The animal will be taken home for one night only to allow all children to have a turn. If you do not get a chance to write in the diary, we have explained to the children that it is ok to tell us what they were up to instead.

STEM Day 14th February 2020

Today we had our STEM day and what a fantastic day we had.  First we had a great presentation from our terrific STEM ambassador about growing different seeds. We were told that we were going to decorate our own pot to grow some seeds, however we could only decorate our pot with biodegradable materials. We went on a nature walk and gathered different leafs and flowers to decorate our pots. Next, we planted cress seeds. We are excited to watch them grow!

Then we planted a class pot of strawberry seeds after learning all about the different needs of a plant.

We then read a book called The World Came to my Place Today, which told us all about where different materials come from. We noticed that a lot of the materials came from the rainforest, which is our current topic! We were glad to have learned a bit more about it.

Finally, we took part in our cluster STEM mascot competition. We each created a STEM mascot that told us why STEM was important.

We had such a good day and learned lots! Thanks to our STEM ambassador who was a great help to us throughout the day.

Primary Two Homework Wk. Beg. 27th Jan

Please see homework and weekly notes below.

Primary 2 notes:

  • Maths homework grid – A reminder that one activity should be completed per week. Please support or challenge your child as you see fit.
  • Birthdays – We have been learning about the months of the year in French, and have been singing along to a French birthday song.  We have gone over when everyone’s birthday is but some children are still a little unsure.  It would be greatly appreciated if you could help your child with this at home by checking they know when their birthday is.  Many thanks.
  • Scottish Poems – Our Scottish assembly is fast approaching and we are looking forward to hearing the children recite their poem at some point this week.
  • Shoe box donations – Thank you so much for all of your kind donations of shoe boxes. We still require quite a few more per class and ask that you continue to send these in if you can.  Could you please ensure that the shoe boxes you hand in have a completely removable lid. This is to allow us to secure these to the bottom of the box, allowing  a sturdy piece of cardboard for us to put the wheel axis through.

French Birthdays

We have been learning about the months of the year.  We are trying hard to listen to the months, and jump up for our own birthday month.  Some children are a little unsure of when their birthday is, so if you could help with this at home by reinforcing when your child’s birthday is,  we would be very grateful.

We have been listening to a French Birthday song.  To listen to it at home, click  here

Many thanks,
