Welcome to Primary 2a.
Our class teacher is Miss Alexander and we are excited to show you the work we have been doing throughout the year.
This term our topic is life cycles, food chains and animal care. As part of this topic we will be looking into recycling and looking after the environment in order to protect the habitats of animals.
We will also be visiting Gorgie Farm on Thursday 25th May to help us learn more about how to look after different types of animals.

We are continuing to practise reading and writing our common words and enjoy playing games to help us do this.
