Today we were outside investigating the Seasons. Our task was to look for signs of Winter and signs of Spring. We had to use all our senses and record the information on our clipboards.
Here are some Winter things we found:
Erin – The sheep still have woolly coats.
Ryan – I found some red berries on the trees.
Kayla – I can see empty birds’ nests in the trees
Here are some Spring things we found
Maddie – I can hear wellies squelching in the mud.
Ryan – I found some new flower shoots coming up in the plant pots.
Isla – Some sheep have fat tummies, I think they are going to have baby lambs.
Finlay S – I found some snowdrops and crocuses.
We had lots of fun even though it was a bit muddy. Thank you to the parents for providing suitable clothing.
Primary 2 have finished learning about the Sun, Moon and Stars. We have had great fun researching information and taking part in lots of activities. Here are some facts that we have learned.
Amy – The colder stars are red and the hotter stars are blue.
Adam – The sun is a star.
Maddie – The sun is 100 times the size of Earth.
Maya T – The first people to set foot on the moon were Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.
Freya – The astronauts left footprints on the moon and they will never go away because the moon has no weather.
We are now going to be learning about The Weather.
