Damien day! Activities

Posted by Mrs Kennedy Mon, February 19, 2018 09:57AM

Today, the children finished off their focus on running and are now learning about the technique of jumping.
The superhero game was a hit with the children, the rules were as follows:
Flash - running pose
Hulk - jumping with both feet landing at the same time
Spiderman - skipping with high swinging arms
Batman - fighting pose
Captain America - roll across the floor and throw the shield.

Well done to the star players this week: Reese and Mason! :-)

Bird feeders!Activities

Posted by Mrs Kennedy Tue, February 13, 2018 04:29PM

Yesterday and today, the class have been making bird feeders. The children worked very hard to complete this tricky project. Lollipop sticks were pva glued together for the base of the feeder, then stacked them on top of the other to build the 'wall'. Today we mixed sunflower seeds, raisins, cheerios, grated cheese and lard together to create the bird food fat balls. It was very messy but worth it! Have a great half term everyone!

RSPB visitorActivities

Yesterday, P2 had a special visitor in the classroom as part of our birds topic. Catherine from the RSPB came in to talk about the appearance and sounds of different birds in the UK. We then went outside for 'the big bird watch' to listen to the sounds of the birds and use binoculars to spot them. Catherine was so impressed with the children's prior knowledge on birds!

Damien day! Activities

Posted by Mrs Kennedy Mon, February 05, 2018 10:02AM

Today the children were practicing running in different ways. Damien set up relay teams to reinforce sprinting from one end of the assembly hall to the other. The children had to touch the cone during their sprint to practice changing directions.
A new technique the class learned today was a zig-zag run. Olivia Mc did a fantastic job at demonstrating this new technique!

Well done to the star players this week: Vikram and Darren :-)

Randalstown Forest Activities

What a fantastic time the primary 2 children had at Randalstown Forest today! Unfortunately the bird hide was flooded but that did not ruin our day! The children loved jumping in the puddles and taking in the beautiful sites of nature!
