Primary 2 – Week in Review

This week in Primary 2 our big highlight would be our tour courtesy of Edinburgh Bus Tours and met Cobbles the Scottie Dog along the way!

In our maths and numeracy, we have been focusing on finding the fractions of numbers or amounts this week. We enjoyed this game to consolidate our confidence with fractions of shapes as we moved to focus on finding halves of numbers and started to look at the division sign. We continued to explore finding quarters of numbers and how to show remainders.

In our literacy we continue to work on some storytelling alongside our Read, Write, Inc. work. ‘ew’ was our focus sound pattern this week and we explored some of the meanings of ‘ew’ words and practised our pattern with these games.

A big well done and congratulations to our

Tomasz

for being a Successful Learner in applying himself in his reading, trying to make good choices and his efforts to get on with his work.

We have been enjoying more fairy tale stories this week, with some more uncommonly known tales such as The Goose Girl, The Red Shoes and our tale below, The Magic Box. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did. We look forward to seeing you next week in advance of the Easter Holiday break!

Royal Mile Primary School Art Exhibition

Dear Royal Mile Families,

As you may be aware, our annual Art Exhibition is coming up on the 8th of April, 2022.

Due to regulations still surrounding schools, we can only invite a few of our community partners to the opening this year. They will be taken around the exhibition by our diligent, creative Art Reps. All the classes have been working very hard on our theme: Our Diverse Community and there will be a range of learning and artistic endeavours on display.

Unfortunately, parents and carers are still not able to visit as we did in previous years, however this will be a possibility after the Easter break.

We very much hope that you will be able to enjoy viewing it in person during the summer term and we will keep you informed as to when and how this will take place.

In the meantime, I wanted to share the beautiful posters created by the Art Reps to advertise the event.

We are so looking forward to welcoming you in to see the hard work by the pupils, just not quite yet!

Primary 2 – Week in Review

Welcome to this week in review in Primary 2!
Please bear with us while we still work on the video for the P2 Show, this will be shared in its own post as soon as it is done. Thank you for your patience!

We had some quality time with our P7 buddies this week. We explored the book bags in the library and made marble runs to round out some quality buddy time!

In our maths, we continue to work on fractions, working on identifying fractions and exploring building up fractions. We have been looking at the 2 times table this week and beginning to link this to our doubles work.

In literacy we have been focusing on the ‘oa’ (as in ‘boat’) sound in particular this week as well as continuing to work hard in our Read, Write, Inc. work. We are starting to explore more storytelling and looked at a story from India about an elephant and a dog who become friends. We sequenced the story to help us start to retell it.

We have been monitoring the cress we were growing as part of Science Week.
The seeds which had water and sunlight have started to sprout and the seeds that had no light but were being watered also started to grow.
The seeds with no water, no sun or sun but no water didn’t sprout at all and we have begun to record this.

A big well done and congratulations to our

Kyra

for being a Responsible Citizen and getting on with her work, settling into new rules and routines and asking for help when she needs it.

Have a lovely weekend! We look forward to seeing you next week!
