This week in P1HD

In Numeracy, we have been learning to count, recognise and correctly form numbers to 10. We had lots of fun inviting parents/carers in to observe a numeracy lesson. We also identified basic 2D shapes and focused on a triangle, discussing its properties and where we may see it in the environment. We introduced numbers in between and used our number lines to help.

A triangle has 3 vertices and 3 sides.” – Oscar

The racoon’s nose was a triangle.” – Phoebe

We showed parents how to count with the number lines and number fans.” – Faith

In Literacy, we learned three new sounds: e, h and r. We had lots of opportunities for word building and had to say, make, read and write CVC words, using our initial sounds. We also read our ORT 1st words books to Miss Duncan. In writing, we wrote a personal account called A Day Out.

We wrote a story and had to include a full stop.” – Faith

We went down up and round to write ‘r’.” – Jessica

We wrote ‘r’ with rhubarb in the rice.” – Oscar

In Health and Wellbeing, we read a story called The Grumpycorn and linked this into our Emotion Works. We identified the emotion word for the character and used words to describe his behaviours throughout the book. We drew pictures to illustrate good choices that he could have made in the story rather than shouting and throwing things.

“The unicorn was grumpy.” – Logan

“He threw stuff.” – Sarah

“The unicorn was being gentle in my picture.” – Ayesh
