P1M term 4 update!

Term 4

We have had a busy and exciting start to term 4 in P1M.

This term our learning context is Fairyland. The friendly dragon sent P1 a letter asking them to read and share more fairytales and to turn the classroom into Fairyland. So far P1 have heard about Jack and the Beanstalk. We have also looked at different parts of a castle and what their job is.

In Numeracy we have been learning about money. When you are at the shops the boys and girls in P1 could help to identify the coins you are using and as a challenge they could help to count out amounts up to 20p and beyond. We will also be learning to tell the time using o’clock and half past times. Each day try to point out an o’clock or half past time  and discuss where the minute and hour hand are.

We have  been to visit the Community Garden. Mr Martin told us all about the plants that grow in the garden and how to look after them. We have been learning about the different parts of a plant and their jobs in class.

The Abercromby Bake Off house challenge is taking place on the 4th of May. Pupils can enter by baking a minimum of 6 cupcakes, biscuits or a ‘Showstopper’ style cake. Each pupil who enters will receive 100 house points for their house team!
