P1EC week beg 26.08.19


Another busy week in P1EC. This week we had a lot of firsts.

First time we had gym with Mr Foley, first time we spent quality time with our buddies, first time we met Ms Elizabeth.

Ms Elizabeth will be in class on Thursdays when Mrs Cuthbert has her day out.

On Wednesday of this week we had a big surprise when we came back in from lunch. There was a glitter trail leading to the front of the classroom where the children found a fairy tale and a letter. The letter was from a friendly dragon who was asking for our help to rebuild Fairyland.

The children were really keen to help. They discussed which fairy stories they would like to read (the more we read, the more people will believe in Fairyland) what they already knew about Fairy tales and what they would like to learn and do.

Hana wrote back to the dragon explaining that ‘we would love to help you save Fairyland. We want you to be happy’


What we already know…

‘Tinkerbell is a fairy’-Miley

‘Fairy tales always have a happy ending’- May

‘The Beast in Beauty and the Beast was a monster’-Darcie

‘The three little pigs built their own house. The wolf blew them down’- Rhys

‘The three little pigs made houses from straw, sticks and bricks. The wolf couldn’t blow down the house made of bricks’- Callen

‘Little Red Riding Hood visited her Granny’- Summer


This week we started on our phonics programme. So far we have learnt the sounds ‘s’, ‘a’ and ‘t’. We learnt the song and action for the sound and how to correctly form the letter.

In Numeracy we have been enjoying playing on Education City  to consolidate our numbers to 20. We have also been working hard on our formation when writing numbers. Next week the children have asked to use playdoh and shaving foam to help them with practising their formation.
