We all enjoyed this task and our artwork looks fantastic!

This week in maths we made a class pictograph about eye colour. After, we created the graph we worked with a partner to make questions for others to answer about our graph. 

We have also been doing some imaginary writing this week. We have learnt a lot about animals over the last few weeks and used what what we know to create our own imaginary  animals. We used different parts of animals to create our creatures and wrote about where they live, what they eat and then gave a description of what our animal looked like. We really enjoyed this task and loved looking at each other’s animals. Here are some pictures of our writing

Primary 2 and primary 5 French fortune tellers. 

We have been working with primary 5 to help us develop our skills in French. Primary 5 made fortune tellers using the French vocabulary for colours, numbers and days of the week and taught us how to use these correctly. We all had a great time using these to practise our French and can’t wait to work together again! 

P2a trip to Gorgie Farm

Last week we went on a trip to Gorgie Farm to help us learn about different animals and how to look after them. We had a great day walking around the farm and learnt a lot of new things. We also got the opportunity to handle a few of the animals on the farm including a guinea pig, tortoise and hedgehog. Here are some pictures from our day at the farm.
