P2A – Mr Harper


Friday 19th February:

We’ve had another great week of home learning and this is our last week of home learning because we’ll all be back at school on Monday!

This week we’ve been reading the story Dogger and taking part in all sorts of fun activites from the story. We’ve been creating and running our own races, and setting up our own stalls and toy shops!

I was so impressed with all of your creative race ideas and your brilliant toy shops and stalls!

We’ve also started learning about money, we’ve been practising recognising coins and we’ve all been working hard on our spelling and reading too.

Very well done for all your hard work this week. You should all be very proud of yourselves. I’m looking forward to seeing you all on Monday morning for a fun week of learning at school!

Have a lovely weekend

Hello everyone

It has been another fantastic week of home learning for Primary 2. This week we have focussed on the story Where the Wild Things Are and we’ve been designing, creating and writing about our very own amazing monsters.

We started by designing and drawing the monsters.

What an incredible selection of monsters! Next it was time to describe the monsters using WOW words! Some people labelled their monsters and other people wrote about them. Everyone did a fantastic job choosing amazing descriptive words.

We’ve also been using our measuring skills in real-life situations to do some baking. A few people did some monster baking!

On Wednesday we were designing and building models for our monsters, all of the models needed to have a place for the monster to play and a place for the monster to sleep.

Everyone has been working hard on measuring, and this week it’s been all about measuring weight and using the terms heavier, lighter and equal.

I’m so impressed by all the hard work I’ve seen this week, you should all be very proud of yourselves Primary 2.

Have a fantastic February break and I’ll see you all for a bit more home learning after the holiday.

Good morning Primary 2. It is the end of week 3 of home learning and I am super proud of all of your hard work this week. Here are some of the fantastic things Primary 2 have been doing this week.

Everyone has been working hard on spelling their tricky words, the ai pattern and the ay pattern.

We’ve also been taking part in science experiments to learn more about the water cycle.

Primary 2 have been using their creative skills to create their own amazing imaginary animals! I was so impressed by all of these incredible creatures!

I was so impressed by everyone’s fantastic poetry recitals and it was really tough to choose a winner. Here’s the class winner from P2A.

Well done everyone for another terrific week of home learning. Have a lovely weekend and I’ll see you all on Monday morning.

Primary 2 have been hard at work this week, they have been working on all sorts of interesting activities and I’ve been super impressed by how hard everyone’s been working.

A BIG THANK YOU to the adults who have helped to facilitate the children’s learning from home this week.

Here’s some of the magical moments from week 2 of home learning.

We’ve read the book Can’t you sleep little bear? and we’ve been creating posters with helpful tips for getting to sleep.

Lots of fantastic work on measuring volume.

P2 have been using their imagination to design a cave for a bear to hibernate in, and creating artwork in the style of Ritchie Collins as well as some fantastic creative drawings.

Well done for all your fantastic work this week Primary 2. Have a lovely weekend and I’ll see you on Monday.

Hello everyone, it’s the end of our first week of home learning and you have all done some terrific work. We’ve been doing lots of literacy and numeracy this week as well as some brilliant art, music and science.

We’ve drawn some super polar bears.

We’ve been working hard on spelling our tricky words and on the sh spelling pattern.

Primary 2 have learnt about some polar animal’s adaptations, made some incredible posters for missing penguins with brilliant descriptive words!

All the work you’ve done this week has been absolutely fantastic and I’m so proud of you all. Have a lovely weekend and I’ll see you on Monday!

Primary 2 have been hard at work during Maths Week Scotland. I’ve been so impressed by how many questions you’ve all answered as part of the Sumdog competion, well done! 👍

This week we’ve practising counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and using numberlines to help us. As part of our learning we went outside and created our own chalk numberlines going up in 2s, 5s and 10s. Everyone had a shot at jumping along their numberline and counting along with each jump. Great work Primary 2!

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Hello everyone!

I hope you’re all looking forward to coming back to school on Wednesday or Thursday, I’m really looking forward to meeting you all. Primary 2 is a very exciting year where you learn all sorts of interesting things and you have lots of fun. Here’s a picture of your new classroom, I’m busy getting it ready for us right now!

And here’s two pictures of where you’ll be lining up, it’s just round the corner from the Primary 1 playground and it’s near the red toadstools with the yellow spots. Don’t worry if you’re not too sure where it is, myself and some other teachers will be around on Wednesday and Thursday to help you.

Have a lovely day and I’ll see you soon.
