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!
We will be heading to Glasgow Science Center for our School trip in May. We can’t wait! Sports day is also in May – what a busy month we have coming up!
We are rehearsing for our school show ‘The Bee Musical’ – look out for a letter about costumes. A yellow t-shirt should be handed in by the 18th of May. Please clearly label these with your child’s name.
What a busy term we have ahead! Lots of exciting learning experiences to look forward to!
P7 buddies Aaron and Zak helped Carter and Maxine to report on their week in school.
In primary 1M we have been learning lots of things this week. In numeracy we have been learning to count aloud up to 40 and learning about ordering numbers to 10. In literacy we have been learning how to read and spell different words like cat and dog. We are trying hard to log on the the netbooks by ourselves and we used paint to draw the Gruffalo! We liked PE with Mr Roberts, we liked the games that he plays with us! Have a look at some pictures!
P1M have been learning all about the Gruffalo! In the story each character has a different habitat. With Miss Brown the pupils have been learning all about what a habitat is, where different animals live and we explored habitats in the Quiet Garden. The boys and girls were very excited to go exploring – here are some pictures!
P1M had a great week during ‘Maths Week Scotland 2017.’ They took part in challenge afternoons, had visitors to the class who spoke about how they use maths in their jobs and took part in exciting homework challenges. It was great to see so many homework challenge pictures on Twitter!!
P1M are learning how to add and subtract within 10 and beyond. Each day pupils participate in different activities and this week they need to decide whether the question is asking them to add or subtract. Pupils are encourage to use different tools to help them add and subtract such as cubes, their fingers and number lines.
Remember to continue to practice the number facts at the back of the red reading folders. This will help you get quicker at recalling different facts.
P1M are becoming much more confident when using the netbooks and they are trying really hard to logon independently. This week the class were set a challenge to use the Paint programme to create a detailed picture of a robin. This is because we are learning the poem ‘Robin Reidbreist’ and we have learned all about robins too. Have a look at some of our super pictures.
P1 went on a Google expedition to the North Pole. The pupils got to use a mobile phone to view different scenes in a virtual reality adventure. When they lifted the phone up or moved the phone from side to side they got to view a different part of the scene. P1 got to see Santa’s Grotto, the stables where he keeps his reindeer, his workshop and Santa on his sleigh.
What a great experience! Thanks Google Expeditions!
P1M wrote some excellent stories about winter. They had some fabulous ideas for their stories, for example, some children wrote about sledging, snowball fights and building snowmen. P1 talked about what they might wear in the winter weather too. They used this information to ensure that they added detail to their pictures. The boys and girls are trying really hard to form their letters carefully following the Read, Write Inc rhymes.
