What a great 1st Term. It has been a pleasure to teach each and every child in P2 this term and I am excited about the learning experiences that are to come!

Thank you so much for the generous gift I received yesterday at the party. I can't wait to go for some end of term pampering!

Have a wonderful holiday and safe travels to all of those who are leaving and have not yet left.

Happy New Year in advance and I look forward to seeing you all in 2018!!!!!

MP1 - IPC Exit Point

posted 10 Dec 2017, 16:37 by Primary 2 Teacher   [ updated 10 Dec 2017, 16:37 ]

To celebrate the end of our unit 'People of the Past', MP1 invited the Nursery and P1 to come and share some of their learning. 
The P3s coached each class in how to play a simple rhythm with their bodies and instruments. 

The P2s introduced the artist Miro to each class and coached them in making a mini-Miro, a picture in the style of Miro. 

We used reflection, cooperation and communication throughout these activities.

The Shoe That Grows Appeal

posted 5 Dec 2017, 18:10 by Primary 2 Teacher   [ updated 5 Dec 2017, 18:10 ]

Last Friday school raised 8,150 roubles (102GPB/ 139.37 USD) or 9 pairs of growing shoes for orphans in Nigeria. A big thank you to all who donated and of course to Peri and Alexandra for their organisation of the tuckshop. 

I have just uploaded our most recent earnings to the shoe that grows web page. Our donation will be for 300 shoes which is $4,500 or 3340 pounds. Mike´s overall target is $6000 which seems like a big target but we have already raised $1,266 towards the total. If you would like to see how we are doing then click on this link here

Many thanks

Peer Portraits

posted 3 Dec 2017, 21:46 by Primary 2 Teacher   [ updated 3 Dec 2017, 21:47 ]

In Art we learnt how to look carefully at our friends and draw a portrait of them from observation. We had to remember to include: eyes (the correct colours), eyebrows, lips, nose and the hair (the correct colour and style). 
This was a challenging task but we used our resilience to create some great portraits!


Learning about the primary colours.
