Term 1A - Houses and Homes

Primary 2 are loving learning about houses all over the world! Within Play Based Learning we have been building tree houses, designing beach houses, exploring the My Play Home iPad game, building our own igloos and making our own play dough mud huts!

We really enjoyed our talking and listening homework task where we brought in props and photographs to show our friends our favourite thing about home.

Lots of us live in different types of houses. Some of us live in farm houses, bungalows, cottages, detached houses or semi-detached houses. We really enjoyed becoming interior designers and using shop magazines to design the interior of a house!

We have been learning how to write instructions by making them clear and by using bossy verbs. We made a marshmallow house  and a tinfoil boat house and then created instructions to tell others how to make them!

We are so excited to learn lots more about houses and homes over the next few weeks. Have a look at the photographs below to see what we have been getting up to so far!
