Tricky Ricky the Magician found time in his busy schedule to dropinto Balgreen School and perform for us! We had lots of fun and laughter! The magic tricks and funny jokes went down extremely well with the children and true to form, Tricky Ricky included a few adult jokes, to check the staff were paying attention and make us giggle!

Hope you enjoy reading about what we have been learning and seeing our photos.
Term 1 P2B August – October 2018
On our first day back we talked about our holidays and places we had been. We discussed postcards and when/why we send them. We wrote postcards to Mrs. Jack to cheer her up, as she had hurt her back.
We started our MADD topic. We chose Fantastic Mr Fox as our class novel and brainstormed all the exciting Music, Art , Drama and Dance activities we could do linked to this novel. We came up with lots of good ideas. We also linked this novel to Literacy activities and especially enjoyed making Wanted Posters for Mr. Fox. We debated whether we thought Mr Fox was a criminal or not and whether he deserved to be on a Wanted Poster.
We did lots of wonderful art work linked to Fantastic Mr Fox, with Mrs Gillies our art specialist. We enjoyed demonstrating our new art skills to our parents on the Open Morning and enjoyed teaching our parents how to draw foxes, using mixed media. We explained to our parents what hot and cold colours are. ( Just in case they weren’t sure! )
Our topic this term has been Happy and Healthy.
Ben Bear had been up to mischief and was eating junk food, suffering from lack of sleep and was in agony with toothache because he wasn’t brushing his teeth morning and night. Luckily, Ben Bear has been going home with one child at a time, on a weekly basis and has been learning the error of his ways! The children in P2B have been showing him how to have a healthy lifestyle and have been keeping a diary so Ben doesn’t forget the good advice! The class have also been learning about good hygiene as well as how to look after your teeth. They also had a visit from some trolls and unicorns who had unfortunately caught head lice. The children enjoyed shampooing and grooming these creatures to help clear up their nit problem!
We also talked about nutritious, balanced meals and then used collage materials to make a healthy plate.
We have been learning to add two numbers together, using a variety of techniques and strategies.
A fox went out on a chilly night
We loved meeting up with P2A to practise singing A fox went out on a chilly night. Gus, my brother came into school and taught us rhythm patterns to accompany our singing.
