ONE MILLION STEPS
P2 helped to complete the 'One Million Steps' challenge today. We walked around Moira Demesne and played games like Traffic Lights, Fruit Salad, Stuck in the Mud and Jelly Bean. It was fantastic and we feel really fit!
What a fantastic day P2 had at the Zoo! We went to the school room where John told us very interesting facts about the animals. We saw Harry the African hedgehog, Sanchez the leopard gecko, Rosie the tarantula, Frankie the Australian frog and we got to hold a stick insect and Samantha the African python. There was a giraffe called Finn. We heard the lion roar and the gorillas were making a lot of noise in the gorilla house. We loved spending our money in the shop.
Exploring 2D shapes with curved and straight sides
The children were given a Venn diagram to sort 2D shapes with only curved sides, only straight sides and those with both curved and straight sides.
What 3D shape am I?
The children used a feely bag and worked in pairs to describe the properties of their 3D shape to their partner. They used mathematical language like edges, vertices, flat/curved faces, rolls, stacks ....
Shapes and patterns
The children completed an activity involving rows and columns where they had to draw the 2D shape and the correct pattern.
The children worked in pairs to create 3D skeleton shapes made with balls of play dough and straws. They found out how many balls of play dough (vertices) and how many straws (edges) it takes to make a cube, cuboid, pyramid and prism.
Fun with shapes
We really enjoyed learning all about 2D and 3D shapes. Look at these photos to see the different activities. We sorted, named and described shapes. We loved building models and creating shape pictures.
Tens and Units
We have been learning about our 'teen' numbers. Look at us carrying out our activities.
Emily's corgi Anna won best puppy at Crufts on Sunday. Well done!
World Book Day
Mrs Stewart came to our class to read us a story. We enjoyed it very much.
P2 made bird food
We had great fun making bird food. We love to see the little robin visiting our bird feeder at our classroom window.
Our materials topic
Our topic is materials. We are reading The Three Little Pigs to help with our exploration of this topic.
P2 Shrove Tuesday Assembly
P2 took assembly today. We sang a special song about making pancakes and recited a poem. We talked about the ingredients needed to make 'good' pancakes. Then we talked about the 'Bible' and how it teaches us to live 'good' lives. At lent we can say sorry to God and really try to say and do kind things. Mrs Forbes was so proud of us. We enjoyed delicious pancakes at break-time!
We are learning to tell the time using o'clock and half past. Here are some of our activities.
Our Dissolving Investigation
We found out about 'fair testing'. In our investigation we tested flour, sand, coffee, salt, sugar and tea to find out if they dissolve in water.
Eco Event - Waste Education Bus Visit
P2 visited the Eco Bus. We were told lots of useful information about recycling. We had a whiff of how bad a landfill site can smell! We saw lots of items made from recycled materials, we recycled newspaper to make our own little paper pot for planting cress.
Our snow investigation
We wrapped up and went out to gather snow for our investigation. We talked a lot about what we thought would happen and then, in groups, carried out our investigation.
P2 Maths is fun!
Have a look at us carrying out some of our activities. They include addition, capacity, data handling and programming Bee-Bot to follow a pre-planned journey!
Our Water Topic
We hare really enjoyed our big book 'The Rainbow Fish'. Our water topic has been very interesting and exciting!
Posting our Christmas cards
We walked to the postbox on the Backwood Road to post our Christmas cards but sssh, don't tell!
We loved performing and singing in our Christmas play called the 'Snowman at Sunset'. It was so much fun and Mrs Forbes was very proud of us!
Our visit from Dr. McKelvey
Our new topic is People Who Help Us. A big thank you to Dr. McKelvey for taking time to visit our class. She showed us photographs and some of the important equipment she uses in her job to help people. It was very interesting.
Christmas Shoe Box Appeal 2016
P2 are thinking of others this Christmas. Our shoeboxes filled with gifts were loaded into a big van to start their long journey. Thanks to everyone who generously contributed this year.
Telling the Time
P2 have had fun learning about o'clock times. We made our own clocks, used stampers to make booklets, played o'clock bingo, used the Interactive Whiteboard to play time games and much, much more .....
P2 Maths is fun!
Mrs Forbes thinks of lots of ways to make Maths fun!
We love gymnastics
Look at us finding ways to travel on the equipment in gymnastics. We really enjoyed it.
We really enjoy hymn practice every Friday afternoon. Last week we sang so well that our class was awarded Belle!
Sharing at harvest-time
A big thank you to P2 who brought in lots and lots of food for the Lisburn Food Bank. It will be shared among those families who are in need.
Indoor and Outdoor Play
Having fun in P2
2D Shape Houses
We had fun creating houses from shapes.
It has been great September weather for P.E outside. P2 love team games.
We had a great time making our 3D houses using recycled cereal boxes.
