What are we learning

September 2018


This month Mrs Mc Mullan's Yr 2/3 pupils are busy little bees already !!! They have hit the ground running with their topic " School's Cool" !! For the next 4 weeks we will be learning about many different aspects of school life. We will be exploring jobs in our school , mapwork relating to our school building , life at school and school long ago.

Already we have completed a tour of the school and located all the key areas. We are working hard to build a large 3D model of the building. We are also designing our very own dream classrooms and have set up Mrs Colhoun's office as one of our play Zones. In the next few weeks , we will be learning lots about how our school works and what life in school was like long ago. We will be using the apps on our iPads to record what we have learnt and give our opinions. Mrs Colhoun our school secretary and Barry our caretaker have visited us and told us all about their jobs. Check out the photos we took in our gallery !!!

Watch out for our class curriculum guide coming home soon !!! It will let you know all the key areas of learning we will be exploring this year!!!

Take a look at the new photos of the work we have done so far in our gallery !!!





May 2018


In May P2/3 learnt about Pets. The children decided to concentrate work on Guinea Pigs, Dogs, Cats and Rabbits. We created fun play zones to enhance our learning. These included:

  • Pet jigsaws
  • Pet art / craft area
  • Pet den
  • Vet corner
  • Making pets with clay/dough
  • Pet ICT games
  • Pet reading corner

During literacy lessons we developed our factual writing skills through pet reports. We read books about pets and learn how to look after pets.

We even had a visit from a very special pet!!

Mrs Cunningham and Jenson brought Missy the dog to our class for a morning of fun. We learn lots about how to look after a dog and spent the morning playing with her. Thanks to Mrs Cunningham, Jenson and Missy for a lovely day.
