P2B – Ms Pincock & Mrs Buchanan


Friday 22nd January:

This week lots of our activities are connected with animals in temperate regions. We thought about how they needed to eat well before they hibernate and made lots of Healthy Snacks. Then we had a Teddy Bears picnic. It was great fun!

We also designed a cave for a bear to hibernate in. Mr Teddy wants us to build them all for him now.

In maths we have carried on learning about measure and focused on capacity this week. Mr Harper gave us lots of maths challenges and we even learnt about displacement. Here we are investigating.

Look at our little artists – isn’t their work wonderful?

Primary 2b looked at artwork by Scottish Artist, Ritchie Collins. They discussed it with an adult and then they made their own Ritchie Collins inspired piece of art using crayons.

This week, we have been continuing to look at numbers up to 100. On Wednesday, we made our own 100 squares.

Look at these star writers ! We have been focussing on writing what happens in the beginning, middle and end of stories. This week it was Jumblebum: The Monster who loves MESS.

Friday 15th January:

Well, we are back to Home Learning and this is us at the end of our first week. Thank you for all the emails, messages on Learning Journals and work that you have sent in. It really helps us to feel connected to you all.

We have done lots of literacy and numeracy, but we also started the week thinking about our work on climate zones of the world, and this week lots of our work was connected with the polar regions.

On Monday people drew polar bears. Look at all our super pictures below.

On Tuesday, we heard the story ‘Lost and found’ by Oliver Jeffers and made a poster for a penguin that had been found. Our posters are super. Have a look at them.

We have also been doing some freezing and thawing experiments.

Friday 11th December:

Primary 2B have been thinking about others this Christmas. Particularly, people who are older and haven’t been able to see their loved ones because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

We made some Christmas tree handprint cards and decorated them with shiny jewels. We then wrote messages to care home residents to make them smile at Christmas.

These cards are bound to put a smile on a care home residents face.

Mrs Buchanan is very proud indeed! 🙂

Thursday 5th November:

P2 Planters!

P2B have been busy planting today.

First, we planted broad beans inside the poly-tunnel on the allotment. These can only grow under cover during the winter.

Then, we planted garlic in one of the raised beds. This should grow quite happily outside in winter.

Finally, we planted pansies in the raised beds outside our classroom. These have brightened up the playground.

Friday 2nd October:

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 been learning about shape and practising counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, 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.

We have also been talking about our worries and we’ve made Worry Monsters from cut out shapes. Super work Primary 2B!

Tuesday 11th August:

Hello Primary 2B. I am really looking forward to meeting you all. The staff are busy in the school getting things ready for you coming back. I’ve been given work from your Primary 1 teachers, which I will give you to take home when I see you this week.

To find our new classroom, walk around the side of the building till you reach the blue bench, and our door is opposite.

This is our new classroom, though I’ve not finished setting it up yet.

See you soon,

Ms Pincock
