Today our Parent Council displayed the school’s ‘Little People of the World’ Olympic art project. Each class created a ‘little person’ based on their Olympic country. Hopefully you’ll be able to spot primary two’s hard work amongst the many countries dislayed.

Primary 2 shared their learning about Minibeasts with both children and parents on Friday.
P2c visited Butterfly World and went pond dipping at Inveresk yesterday. We discovered lots of minibeasts living in the pond and learned about food chains. In the afternoon we went to Butterfly World.
Ms Lewis discovered a new visitor when she arrived at school this morning. One of our butterflies had hatched! We put some grass and flowers into our observation tank with a little sugar and water. After observing them throughout the day we decided to let them out into the school garden at home time. The butterflies look like they were enjoying the sunshine and flowers.

Despite the weather we’ve been out in the rain looking for minibeasts with Mr Anderson.
We’ve examined snails, worms, tadpoles and caterpillars in our observation tanks. You can see below how some of our minibeasts are growing.
We have been learning about fire safety at home this week.
We visited the local fire station and learned about fire risks, hazards at home and the importance of having a working smoke alarm. We are all going to make a fire escape plan at home with our families and check that we have a working smoke alarm in our homes.
