P2b Learning Log – 30.1.17

This week in class we have enjoyed learning all about Chinese New Year. We enjoyed learning all about the Chinese zodiac animals and learning about how the colour red is lucky in China.

We are continuing with our new sound in literacy ‘soft g’ and have been working on reading and writing our tricky words.

This week in maths we were learning how to round numbers up and down to the nearest 10. We played games on the board and had different written tasks at our desks to help us practise rounding numbers.

We are looking forward to starting our new topic ‘Being Healthy’. During circle time this week we began to plan what it was we wanted to learn. We spoke about what we already know, what we would like to learn and how we would like to learn. There was some excellent discussion and lots of fantastic suggestions.

P2b Nativity

P2 are very excited about Christmas and have been working very hard in class to learn all our nativity songs.

In P1  and P2 we have been working really hard on our Christmas Nativity. Learning all our new songs, lines and actions and practising our performance for the school and parents.

We had a fantastic time performing our nativity to the school and all our families. Thank you for coming to watch us!
