Mrs Cosgrove P2
Welcome to Primary 2
Our class teacher is Mrs Cosgrove and our classroom assistants are Mrs Hobson (Monday to Wednesday) and Mrs Moffett (Thursday and Friday). On lour class page you will be able to see all of the wonderful work we have been doing in school.
In Primary 2 we love outdoor learning and take lots of our lessons outside to our outdoor classroom. We are super scientists and participate in lots of science investigations throughout the year. This year we are continuing our Shared Education project with our friends in Harpur's Hill Primary School. This involves three joint Play Based Learning sessions per term.
Primary 2 are fantastic Eco Warriors and are working very hard to ensure we maintain our Eco Schools Green Flag. Lots of our class work throughout the year contributes towards our Eco Schools topics. Make sure you follow us on twitter @StMalsColeraine to keep up to date with our learning too!

Our final genre in Primary 2 is narrative writing. We will focus on the features of title, characters and setting. Our final piece of writing will be a narrative based on the setting of the seaside and include characters found there.
