The P2’s had a busy and very exciting 3rd term.  We’ve had lots of fun with our Braidside buddies as part of shared education.  We’ve been on lots of trips and learned many new things about our exciting world.  In school we’ve been learning all about minibeasts.  We’ve been on a minibeast hunt, painted and created our very own minibeast design and completed a fact book all about minibeasts.  We finished off our topic by having a bug ball to celebrate all our learning!


In this first term in P2G/C we are learning lots of new things. Our topic is ‘Healthy Me.’ We are discovering ways in which we can keep our bodies healthy by eating fruit/vegetables and by doing lots of exercise. Our class are going on a visit to Dayfresh to have a look at all the healthy food. We are also going to visit the dentist in Cullybackey to learn how to look after our teeth. In Numeracy we are making lots of patterns and continuing to develop our adding skills. We are becoming brilliant writers and are practising our sounds every day. The P2’s have an exciting year ahead!

In the second term in P2G/C we have been very busy preparing for Christmas and learning lots of new skills. Our topic is ‘Toys.’ We discovered how toys work, what materials are used to make them and explored toys from the past. With Christmas coming we were busy preparing for our school show. We have many budding stars in our class and this year we were delighted to perform, ‘A King is Born’. We worked hard learning all the words and the actions to the songs. In P2 something very exciting happened this term… a little elf came to stay with us in the run up to Christmas! Every week he wrote us a letter and we saw pictures of his adventures around our school and village. The adventures of our elf gave us some great subjects for our Literacy recount writing. In Numeracy we have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We are continuing to consolidate our addition skills through learning the number families to 10. We have also enjoyed recognising, counting and adding money through fun interactive games. We have had a fantastic 2017 and are looking forward to an even better 2018 here in P2.
