Primary School

Delight in Effort, Acceptance and Achievement

Curriculum

P2 are artists!

We loved creating impressionist paintings inspired by the French artist, Berthe Morisot.

Biodiversity Actitivies

We had great fun collecting leaves and sticks from the garden before creating bug hotels during our Biodiversity Day!

World Book Day

We celebrated World Book Day by having Show & Tell, reading lots of lovely stories, contributing to our whole-school story, making book marks and having a book scavenger hunt.

Making Bird Feeders

As part of our 'Winter' topic, we made bird feeders with Martha from The Conservation Volunteers.  We coated pine cones generously in lard, dipped them into a tray of seeds and then tied twine around the centre to allow us to hang them from a tree at home.  The birds of Belfast will be very well fed this Winter! smiley

We have been learning to count in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s

We used the reverse camera feature on our iPads to take 4 different photographs of ourselves. We then imported our photos into Pic Collage, changed the background colour and added a sentence to describe our best quality.

International Dot Day

We read the story of 'The Dot' by Peter H. Reynolds and discovered that we all have the potential to be incredible artists.  There is a creative spirit in everyone!

Hot-Seating

We pretended to be characters from The Three Little Pigs and used question words to ask each other interesting questions. We had to use our knowledge of the story AND our imaginations to answer.
