Class of the Term

Today we had our class of the term treat.  We came to school dressed in our pyjamas and watched Trolls with popcorn.  Last term we managed to win class of the term by getting high class of the week scores to win trophies for our door. We need to follow the Golden Rules and the class rules to stay on the sunshine to keep a high score! Hopefully we will be able to get our first trophy on our P2 door soon for term number 2!


Primary 2 had a great time on Wednesday at their Christmas party.  It was a well deserved treat after all their hard work as the choir and orchestra in ‘A Little Nativity’. We had lots of fun playing games in the classroom. We played musical, statues, musical bumps and also musical stand ups! There were many red faces after the games had finished! What a brilliant time we all had. 

Lauriston Castle

On Tuesday we visited Lauriston Castle.  We were invited by a friendly Dragon who needed our help.  Sir Nasty McKnight had cast a spell that made Dragon’s castle disappear and he had been hiding at Laurston Castle ever since.  We had to find clues to help make Dragon a new castle and a spell to stop Sir Nasty McKnight from casting any other spells!  Luckily we managed to do this and Dragon flew away to Fairyland.  Although we didn’t get to meet him, we did hear him snore because our guides, Mike and Erik, told us Dragon liked to sleep lots during the day. Once the spell was cast, Dragon zoomed through the sky, safely back to Fairyland.  Some children thought they spotted his black tail as he flew away! 

Library books

We are so lucky to have our new library books in class! Today we had some time to choose a book to read by ourselves.  The classroom was very quiet while we carefully read our new books!

Author Visit

Today Lari Don visited our class. She is a Scottish author. She read one of her stories.  It was called The secret of the Kelpie. We found out that Kelpies are mythical creatures that like to snack on children! They disguise themselves as beautiful horses and as soon as you climb on you get stuck to their skin and they drag you out to the water to kill you! Lari likes her stories to have a happy ending so although it was a bit frightening, all the children were safe in the end!

The Botanic Gardens

We had a fabulous visit to the Botanics on Wednesday 24th May.  We were learning about how living things survive.  Here is a sneak peek. Come along to the Primary 2 Showcase next week to find out more!
