A busy term in P2n

We’ve been very busy this term. Our topics have been “Materials “ and “Houses and Homes.”

We have investigated the properties of various materials.

Our museum visit focussed on materials people used in the past and we made our own clay pot. We had a super time.


We have been working with numbers to 100, learning addition and subtraction strategies, time and measurement.


and learning about verbs, adjectives, nouns and alphabetical order.


The weather today …

P4S has been studying all things weather related this term. We all enjoyed measuring the wind speed, direction, rainfall and temperature. Our co-operative learning groups took turns to read the instruments and record the information.  Then we all made bar graphs to show our recordings and used 1 square to represent 2 or 5 units.

We made a display showing the seven elements of weather: clouds, precipitation, sunshine, temperature, visibility, wind force and wind direction.

Our poems were all about weather too. We typed them up in word documents and inserted clipart. We started creating factsheets about different climates and the animals that live there.

We are looking forward to our visit to the Lerwick Observatory next week to find out more about measuring weather and hope we’ll see them launching the weather balloon.
