Bee-autiful bees! 🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝

Thank you so much for the bee-autiful plant pot! It was a lovely choice. As you have included all of your names on it I will always think of you as my busy, worker bees! 🐝 🐝🐝🐝🐝

I look forward to spending the voucher and tending to my new pepper plant. Hopefully I can add them to my salads over the summer.

I will miss you all. Good luck for your future learning journey.

Have a lovely and well earned holiday!

Hooray !! Happy Beltane to everyone!

We had the most amazing Beltane lunch yesterday. Thank you so much to the kitchen staff and all of the servers. We had so much fun!

We enjoyed the music from members of the Silver Band and it was lovely to see all the visitors on the top table.

We wore our Beltane rosettes that we made with pride and the best part was getting to take them home to show them off to everyone!


Push, push, push little seed 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿

Gently releasing our baby butterflies.




We waved goodbye to our painted lady butterflies.

Group Maths and solving Problems.



We made some Beltane decorations.

We learned how to use bandages in First Aid. Thank you so much to Miss Muir and her assistant for helping us to do this.

We still need a little practice………..

Flutter by butterflies! πŸ¦‹ πŸ¦‹

Hanging around at the chrysalis stage.



Preparing to fly ………..

Wow, our butterflies turned into huge painted lady varieties.

All of the caterpillars survived and developed into the most beautiful butterflies.

We released Β them at our Queen’s Jubilee afternoon ! Β What a lovely way to end our celebrations ! πŸ¦‹ πŸ¦‹

Up on the roof !


P2, P2/3 and P3 are all looking after and caring for their caterpillars πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›

They are thriving, munching away happily , growing really big and now they are starting to attach themselves to the lid of their container. Once they settle on the lid they will need peace and quiet to change into cocoons.

There are lots of silvery threads in the containers and this means that the caterpillars are healthy.

We are excited to see the next stage of development in the lifecycle of our caterpillars.

Just hanging.


Very hungry, happy caterpillars !



Latching onto the roof ….

Β  Staying fit and healthy in our Athletics lessons



Β Waiting patiently ….


We have been keeping fit and healthy in our athletics lessons in PE and we are running every day for The Daily Mile.


Our smart pink tee shirts are to celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Daily Mile in schools!

it’s fun to run ! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸƒ


We have some new additions to our class. These very hungry caterpillars are already growing. The first two photos are from day 1 in P2/3 and the final photo is from day 3. They are definitely thriving.

What will they look like next week? πŸ›


It’s a hootπŸ¦‰!

We have moved on to Β learning about another style of writing and this term we are learning to write information reports. We are linking this to our reading because we highlight notes, make our own plan and then we write our information report in our own words.

This is a skill we will be using for the rest of our lives.

In our living and non-living things topic we are starting to think about planting , nurturing and growing things. What will we plant next ?


We have been doing more work using the Notes App on the iPads. Today we learned to do bubble writing and make our names look colourful and eye catching.

When might you use this skill in real life ?

Something fishy is going on in P2/3 ! 🐑

Having a great time learning about wax resistance.Β 


We had a lot of fun learning about wax resistance in Art. This also linked with our Science investigations because we realised that the paint was not running and mixing with the other colours.

This was because the wax crayon is waterproof and we call this process wax resistance.

We had to listen very carefully to our teacher’s instructions to get everything right.

This is part one of our lesson. We are excited to find out what we are going to do with our fish next! 🐠

Have a lovely long weekend everyone!

Spring has sprung!

We have all enjoyed playing outside in the sunshine this week. In PE we had so much fun running around the field and feeling the grass beneath our feet instead of concrete! We have been improving our throwing skills by using the foam javelins. We have some very impressive javelin throwers in our class.

We can wear suncream, sunhats and sunglasses now. It is a good idea to keep our sun hat and sunglasses in our school bag in case we do our learning outdoors.

This week we worked very hard on our Numeracy and Literacy tasks. We also spent some time looking back over our old work and seeing the improvements we have made and talking about our learning with our friends.

We have started to think about our wellbeing and we areΒ Β having Β discussions with our teacher.Β Β We are all going to complete a Wellbeing Wheel to show how we think we are doing with our learning in school.

As we returned to school on Easter Monday we made some very simple Easter masks.



On Friday we had some very special visitors in our class from Apple. They had a chat with us about our learning on the iPads. They were amazed by the skills we had already learned. They were also impressed with how clear we were at explaining what we had been learning Β on the iPads. They took some photographs of our workΒ too.
