Purposeful Play today in P2/1

The boys and girls in P2/1 enjoyed some purposeful play at the end of the day today.

Our young artists decided that our usually camouflaged Arctic animals needed some colour!
Our young mathematicans had fun with analogue and digital clocks.
Great to see young engineering minds at work building lego houses.
A whole kingdom is being built here. Great teamwork boys!
The library corner provided a quiet place to enjoy a book.
These young researchers were finding information about the fastest cars in the world.

Finally, a few budding engineers used their imagination and created a car, a castle and an aeroplane, complete with spinning propeller.

Awesome afternoon P2/1!

P2/1 Learning through play

Lots of great learning opportunities during purposeful play this afternoon.

Our two builders were working together and using their imagination to build tall towers.

Our three researchers were gathering information on the fastest and most expensive cars in the world.
Our mathematican/engineer was using the skills he’d learned in Maths to build a structure with symmetry.
Our artists were getting creative and making hearts with kind messages for Anti-Bullying week.
Great collaboration here from another wee group of artists.
