This week in primary 1/2 we have been learning about money and using our money in the shop. The shop keepers even get wages! We explored our library to find that writers use rhyme to make books more interesting. Our clay models are on display in our classroom. We were pleased at how good they look! We have been jumping in PE. It was great fun to see how far we could jump.


Madeline and James enjoyed doing their pictures for the art competition.

Nicky enjoyed going to the library.

Anna enjoyed the Spring Fayre.

Lulu enjoyed doing her test in maths.

This week we have had our art work shown to the community for an art show and everybody has had fun doing it.

We recreated Steven Brown famous highland cow🐮 pictures and then we chose a different animal with the same theme.

As well as music and maths we also got to work outside to create an observational drawing of nature.

We have also done some writing for a story we have planned out nothing is better than writing an imaginative story, am I right?

Yours sincerely,

Maggie😈 and Mia
