With lots of great work going on in our school here are some updates of what has been happening this month!DiS-Shared-Practice-Newsletter-December
Primary 2 have thoroughly enjoyed getting into the Christmas spirit this week! We started our week by finishing off our Christmas window display. Our film theme was The Polar Express, so we made a train and train tickets, as well as some decorations for the North Pole. We also spent some time decorating our classroom and making paper chains, as well as decorating our snack bags ahead of the Christmas party on Thursday 16th December.
We were excited on Tuesday to get to work with Jo – Jo is in school with us working with all the classes on the Dignity in Schools project. She came to play some games with the p2s and get to know them, as well as hearing all about the work we have been doing about the UNRC convention of the rights of the child. P2 were very excited to meet Dignity the dinosaur and show her some of their favourite places to use their right to play and learn.
We had a brilliant time today (Friday) watching a christmas film and getting cosy in our pyjamas!
In maths this week we have been learning to round to the nearest ten with two digit numbers as well as learning to measure using a ruler.
In phonics we have been revising all the sounds we have learned so far, ready to move onto block 4 in the new year.
READING BOOKS – We will not be sending reading books home during the final week of term. If you have books at home please send them back in so we can put them all away ready to start again in January! P2 have been doing lots of reading for enjoyment in class using our class library, and are brilliant at choosing stories they enjoy so I am sure they will still be happy to share a story with you at home.
We are proud to be working with Children’s Parliament and Stoneywood PS in Aberdeen over the next session on the Dignity in School project. Over the next few weeks the team from Children’s parliament will be meeting stakeholders to introduce the aims and rationale of the work in school. More information to follow shortly.
