Happy Holidays!

What a quick term!!  It’s been super to get to know all the new P1 pupils and to welcome back the P2’s who have been so good at helping to settle in our newcomers!  Have a restful and fun filled holiday, hopefully with weather like today!!  See you all on the 26th October.

National Poetry Day

On Thursday 6th October we celebrated National Poetry Day by reading poems throughout the day.  We listened to a funny poem called “Sick” about a girl who wanted to stay home from school and we listened to Mrs Smith’s favourite poem from her childhood called “Rice Pudding.”  We also enjoyed watching “The Jumblies” and “The Owl and the Pussy Cat” on the whiteboard.  Then we tried writing our own senses poem.  Everyone produced a super piece of writing.  Here are just a few.  The rest can be seen displayed outside P1/2.  To round it all off, Christina brought in her poetry book from home and shared her favourite verses with us the next day.  We really enjoyed our day!

Jolly Phonics

On Thursday, we learned our last letter before we break up for the October holidays.  This morning, Leo brought in something special to show us!  We were delighted to see his very own x-ray photograph to help us learn and remember the x sound.  Good work Leo!
