Primary 2 is a class of 28 pupils taught by Mrs Creelman.

In term 1 so far the children have been revising initial sounds and numbers to 10.  We have been experiencing great weather and so the children have been experiencing outdoor play and PE in our grounds.

The children are also enjoying Play Based Learning, PDMU, R.E, The Arts and World Around Us.  Our topic this term is Houses and Homes.
