## P2/3’s activities.

Fantastic P.E. lesson outside. The children are using a variety of PE skills and had opportunities to invent their own games.

The children designed their own Easter Egg then worked in pairs. Each pairing had to remember their partner’s design, then, taking it in turns, they went off and hid it along with a surprise.

Some people made it really tricky!

Look at the wonderful Easter Bonnets!

## Easter week in Primary 2

Well we have done mainly Easter things this week and the children have really enjoyed it. We’ve done symmetrical eggs, Easter cards (which hopefully your child will remember to give at the appropriate time), Easter Maths, Spring Acrostic poems, the Easter story and various other activities. Culminating today in an Easter egg hunt. Oh also the Easter bonnet Parade and assembly. Have a good holiday everybody and look forward to seeing you back after the holidays.

Numeracy and mathematics

We demonstrated our learning and applied our knowledge of decimals in a topic assessment this week. All of us have been working incredibly hard to develop our understanding of decimals which has been a tricky topic. Thankfully, our positive attitude towards our learning and growth mindsets have enabled us to get to grips with various new concepts and we impressed Mr. Logan with our scores. After Easter we will be moving on to information and data handling where we shall be collecting, displaying using ICT, interpreting and analysing data in various forms including pie charts, bar graphs and line graphs.

Literacy

Our escape plans have been completed and Julia was chosen as our winner. Her plan was intricately thought out and carefully prepared, so therefore, she received the Easter egg prize. Well done Julia and the rest of the class, what detailed and instructive pieces of writing you produced. We have also submitted our final entries to the West Lothian Young Writer of the Year competition and we will cross our fingers that one of this year’s winners will be from P7b.

West Lothian Council’s Museum Service visited us this week to display and discuss some local WWII artefacts. We found this to be incredibly interesting and informative, and enjoyed being given the opportunity to handle and look closely at these items. Joe was chosen as our Air Raid Warden and had the pleasure of wearing a metal helmet throughout the hour long session. We hope your neck isn’t too sore! Some personal projects have been completed and handed in, and Mr. Logan is now looking forward to marking these over the Easter holidays. Having had a brief look at them already, he is impressed with the level of research and detail that has been put into these. You should be proud of these P7b, such an incredibly talented group of pupils.

Friday

P7 showed what responsible citizens they are as they accompanied their P1 Buddies to St. Michael’s Church for our Easter Service today. We enjoyed hearing from Sheryl and Stuart at church and celebrating the end of the school term with some songs and confidently delivered readings. Well done from Mr. Logan and P7b to the pupils from P4, P5 and P6 who were brave enough to speak in front of such a large audience. Thank you also to our parents and carers who joined us for the Easter Service, it was great to  see you.

First week back

• Camp medical forms to be sent home
• STEM buggies to be judged by Mrs. Burgess and Mr. Woodhouse on Thursday 20th April

Have a lovely Easter everyone, thanks for your continued support with all things P7b!

P7b and Mr. Logan

## Cracking Easter

We had a fantastic time at St Michael’s Church yesterday, where Russell and lots of lovely volunteers helped us to learn about Easter and the reasons behind some of the traditions and celebrations that Christians have.
