Primary 2's Prickly Hedgehogs

Primary 2 have been learning lots of new facts about hedgehogs. During play this week we enjoyed shaping and moulding our piece of clay into the perfect hedgehog shape. We pinched the clay to help it resemble a snout and inserted lots of wooden sticks and pasta to resemble its spines. The children all had great fun getting their hands dirty and seeing their final master piece. I think you’ll agree they did a great job!

Primary 2 Enjoy Apple Tasting

Our first week of our new topic ‘apples’ has been lots of fun. 

We started the week by planting our apple seeds in the lovely sunshine pretending to be Johnny Appleseed. The children enjoyed getting creative during structured play, making their own apples and painting apple trees. We finished off the week by tasting six different types of apples, we wonder can you tell which child was tasting the Bramley.

Primary 2 Get To Build A Wooden House

As part of our houses and homes topic, Primary 2 very kindly had a visit from Mr Wickie to teach us about his job as a builder.  He taught us the importance of wearing protective clothing on the building site to keep us safe. We then together made our very own house out of wood, lots of children got the chance to use the screw gun to screw the pieces of wood together, it’s not every day we get to make our very own wooden house, such a treat!

Thank you so much Mr Wickie for taking the time out of your busy day to come in to school, for our wonderful new wooden house and the yummy sweets and chocolates.  

Primary 2 Enjoy A Visit From An Architect

 

As part of our houses and homes topic, Primary 2 had a visit from Mr Irwin to teach us about being an architect.  We saw plans of houses and learned how to draw and design a house of our own!  A huge thank you to Mr Irwin for taking the time to come in to school and for the wonderful drawing pencils and sweets he provided for each child!
