Today we had our Year 1 and 2 Christmas party. We had lots of fun dancing and playing games in our glamorous party clothes, and got a great surprise from a very special visitor! It was a brilliant end to a fantastic first term in Year 2! Everyone is now looking forward to a well deserved Christmas break!
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
This afternoon half of year 2 (mainly infant choir members) walked up to the Parish Centre to sing the songs from our performance to adults who were having a Christmas lunch. The other half of year 2 played a Christmas game of Elves and Grinches! All the children and a fun afternoon!
2C had a great time performing in the music concert on Tuesday 11th December. They demonstrated lovely clear singing voices and impressive Fife skills. Mrs Cochrane, Mrs Anderson and Miss McPheely are really proud of them.
Money! Money! Money!
In Maths we are currently learning about money. We are finding that the children are having difficulty with identifying coins and understanding the relationship between pounds and pence. We know that we are living in an increasingly cashless society, however it is important that the children have an awareness and have experienced using money in everyday situations. Perhaps Saturday's fair could be an ideal opportunity to put these skills into practise?!
To help us write amazing instructions for Our Marvelous Medicine we had a go at writing instructions for making jelly. And the best bit... we were able to eat it after it had set!
It has been a busy start to the new school year here in year 2. The children have been settling in and catching up with friends as well as working extremely hard and learning new routines. Having worked on storyboards last week, the children have completed extended writing on the story of the 'Three Little Pigs', complete with an alternative ending. In Science we have been continuing with our 'Health and Growth' topic and have been investigating how animals and humans change. In P.E. lessons we have been doing gymnastics. In R.E we have been looking at the Christian community. During our Maths lessons we have been recapping number bonds and tackling mental arithmetic.
