Primary 2 have settled very well back in to school. They have been working hard recognising numbers up to 30 and beyond. We have also been naming 2D shapes and creating shape monsters. Some have even been displayed on the wall!
We have be doing some reading aloud in class in small groups and discussing character features and personalities. The children have also been writing about themselves and wrote a short story about a superhero.
In science we are learning about our senses. Last week we put our eyes to the test and this week we are investigating our hearing. We have also been having lots of discussions about our feelings. Every day the children share their feelings by placing their name on our feelings chart. We have also been talking about SHANARRI and what it means to them.
Primary 2 have been fantastic at playing in their area and washing their hands! Let’s keep it up!
Primary 2 have P.E on a Wednesday and Thursday so please send your children to school with their P.E kit on. Please make sure the children come to school with a water bottle and names written on clothes/jumpers. Thank you.
We hope you have a super week!

Miss Clark & Mr Woodward here. We are the Primary 4 teachers this year. We were delighted to welcome back the new Primary 4 children to Carmondean on Wednesday. The children were happy to be back and there was a real buzz about the classrooms and the playground with everyone excited to see their friends again and be in their brand new classrooms.
We will update the blog every week to let you know about our adventures in Primary 4 as well as reminders and other important information so watch this space 🙂
On Wednesday we explored two different stories all about feelings. “The Colour Monster” and “Lucy’s Blue Day” both told the story of characters who changed colour depending on how they were feeling. We spoke a lot about our feelings, how we can tell how we are feeling and what we can do if we feel sad, worried or angry. We will continue to explore this today in class.
Our PE days will be on a Monday and a Friday. Please note that all PE will take place outdoors so appropriate kit should include – old trainers, long jogging bottoms/trousers, a t-shirt and jumper/hoodie for when the weather gets colder. On our PE days (Monday and Friday) the children can come to school in their PE kit and stay in it for the full day. They do not need to get changed back into their school uniform at any point. We will begin PE lessons this coming Monday.
We will send a newsletter home in the next week detailing more information about what we will be learning in the coming weeks. Please look out for this.
We really appreciate all the support you have provided the children on their return to school. We are sure that although different, we will have a very fun and exciting year ahead of us in Primary 4 🙂
Have a lovely weekend.
Miss Clark & Mr Woodward
