We had a little accident with our caterpillars 😞 Two of them were pupating when they dropped from the lid. They never made it back up to the top and now things don’t look so good for them. Or, as Euan put it, ‘They’re done for…’. Two of the remaining three are hanging in a hook shape from the ceiling and the third one is almost ready to hang. Fingers crossed they make it!
We have completed the worksheet about cycles of the Moon. Most of us know the order now. New Moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full Moon, waning gibbous, last quarter, waning crescent, then back to new Moon again. We are also very good now at singing ‘Phases of the Moon – movie’. You can watch it on YouTube.
We have been practising handwriting, forming the letters properly. Mrs Laurie is very impressed with us!
The new climbing apparatus got rather hot on Thursday and Friday. We finished reading ‘Claude on Holiday’ and we’ve now started ‘Claude in the Country’. We think they’re great!
Update for parents/carers following events earlier this week: We only watch Newsround in Primary 2 very occasionally. This is obviously pre-watched by the teacher to ascertain suitability and any questions are dealt with sensitively and carefully.
