Primary 1EC week beginning 25.11.19

Nativity

This week we are in full flow with Nativity rehearsals. The children are working hard to learn all the songs and actions and narrators are practicing their lines. Please find time to go over these with your child at home.

There are still some families who have not asked for tickets for the Nativity. If you would like to come to our Nativity performance there are still some tickets available so please hand in your request form asap.

 

Numeracy

This week we focused on reading number words. Given that we have not covered lots of the sounds that can be found in the spelling of these words Primary 1 are doing really well. We played teddy bear counting on the SMARTboard and working in pairs to complete a matching game.

Using number to 10 flashcards the children showed their understanding of the language of maths. Show me number before/after/in-between, 1/2 more than/less than.

Literacy

Our focus for writing this week was looking at sentence structure and punctuation. Initially the children read through a series of words and then put them in the correct order.

After discussion around what a sentence needs to have the children identified that sentences need a capital letter at the start and a full stop at the end.

We then looked at a text about Kipper. Using skimming and scanning the children identified full stops in the text, these were highlighted in yellow and then they identified all capital letters. These were highlighted in blue.

We then used our knowledge of punctuation and played the punctuation thief game.
