A big welcome to all my super new P2's
Make sure to check our class page regularly to keep up to date with all our fun learning and adventures!
In P2 we have been proudly celebrating our school's 50th Birthday! We were so excited to take part in a whole school show! We sang old Belfast Street Songs and it made our mummies and daddies remember when they were small like us! We also had a very special Mass and Bishop Farquhar came to celebrate the Mass with us! We loved singing all the new hymns written by Mr Davey! Our school was also open for everyone to visit! We loved having visitors looking at our beautiful work in our Classroom! We were so happy to be part of this very special occasion within our school family of St Colmans!
A Big thank you to Roma Murray's daddy Conor for coming in to tell us how important exercise is to keep us fit and healthy! He told us all about his job as a P.E teacher and played lots of fun games with us! At the end Conor said we were all champions and presented us with medals!! Thank you again! We loved it!
Today in Science Starz we made our own Bath Bombs all from natural ingredients! Mr Baine came round and was so impressed with our scientific skills! The main ingredients were Baking Soda, Olive Oil and Tartar Powder. We then chose our own scent and colour! We are looking forward to lovely baths!!
Today we had a very special visit from Edward's daddy who is a Doctor in A&E. Dr. Chan told us all about the importance of having a healthy diet! We learnt about how to eat the right foods and how to keep a healthy heart! We now realise how much good food it takes to help us grow strong and healthy! Lots of the children now say they would like to be a doctor! Thank you very much Paul!
Today we had a very special visitor in our class- Laura Murray- Roma's mummy came in to teach us all about being a nurse and about staying healthy! We learnt lots of interesting facts about her important job as a heart nurse and talked about all the ways we can stay healthy. We even got to see all of her important equipment as a nurse! Roma's mummy read our class a new book which is really funny called Dustbin Dad! Roma's mummy also brought us in a yummy scrummy healthy treat- mini fruit salads!! Thank you so much for a super morning!

P2 love having Science Starz in on a Wednesday! Every week we look at something really interesting while using our scientific skills of Prediction, Observation, Fair testing and Recording
We have loved using the Percussion instruments to learn Timbre and Dynamics We also made sound poems and learnt about rhythm.
Look at our amazing Ice Trolls!!
We made predictions and investigated a range of materials to see what would make them melt first/ last? We are super scientists!
We went on a mystery trail, looking for clues to try to solve the case of the Magic Suitcase!
We worked in teams, discussed the cryptic clues and eventually discovered the mystery owner!
Here is our detectives teams
