We can’t believe how fast these weeks are flying! Here’s some snapshots of what we’ve been up to this week in P1/2.

  

Writing, spelling, making, creating, building, constructing, sharing, forming, practising, imagining and consolidating. Just some of the skills we’ve been working on this week so far.

Number Talk superstars! ⭐️ 0️⃣1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣4️⃣5️⃣6️⃣7️⃣8️⃣9️⃣🔟

 

Junaid was Mrs Liang’s star pupil this week 😍 Miss Mackay forgot to hand hers out! Keep your eyes peeled on Monday to see who our class star was!

Theo was building a hotel of Tens this morning.

Ayla was practising number formation and wrote in the missing 100!

Dalia and Vincent were using Cuisinaire Roads to make pictures.

Adi, Pio and Alek’s were writing numbers to 100. Look and these smiley faces 😍

Arlo explained today that 3 + 3 + 3 = 9. He said that Number Blocks 9 helped him learn this. Super! ⭐️

We were making 2D shapes outside today using Rainbow Sticks. Miss Mackay would shout out the shape and we made them with our partners. Some were tricky but we persevered.

Great work everyone! Hope you all have a lovely weekend ☀️ Looking forward to next week 🤩

What a super busy week! Here are some of the fun things we’ve been up to.

Monday
Lots of focus and concentration during Number Talk.

 

The P2s have been making and ordering numbers to 30 using Numicon. They’re getting super confident!

 

We did some Star Wars yoga to relax in the afternoon.

Tuesday
This morning we were practising our spelling and letter formations. Look at these super spellers! 😎

  

Ivy decided to practise some Numeracy work too! 😍 Tally marks in glitter!

Then, in the afternoon we talked about the qualities of a good friend. We talked a lot about kindness, love, sharing. We thought that a good friend can also make you laugh when you feel down. We went outside and collected things for our friendship potion. Here Ayla and Olivia explain their potion:

Ivy and Harleigh also thought that helping your friend when they’re hurt was important too!

Marianne and Lyla said that happiness is important too in friendships.

What amazing, thoughtful people Miss Mackay has in her class 🥰

Wednesday

We start our day off with a soft start. Here we consolidate our learning. Alek’s is using his knowledge of shapes and construction to build a garage for his toy car 🤩

 

Look at Lyla’s beautiful writing too!

Emily-Mae and Sophie were busy practising their spelling using play dough.

Alek’s also had fun with our new Number Blocks resource. He followed the magazine to make different numbers (16-20). He compared them to the Numicon too and made them look the same. Super work, Alek’s!

We’ve been super busy during Number Talk too. Mrs Robertson said everyone was focusing so well and persevered when it got tricky. Great number discussions too 😍

P2s we’re making numbers from 1-30 using Ten Frames.

P1s we’re practising number formations with Mrs Robertson.

Thursday

We had our first Big Noise session this morning and LOVED it. So happy to have Stacey and Kirsty back 😊

Friday

Having fun learning and using giant Numicon!
 

Dalia and Gracie created a sea side landscape together.  The blue stones are the sea. The green represents the seaweed. In the sea there are two whales swimming together. There is also fish stuck in rock pools. Well done, girls 👍🏻

Super play doh skills for the Three Little Pigs and a funny puppet show 😀


What a busy week. Well done everyone for working so so hard. Can’t wait for next weeks fun!

We’ve had such a busy week! Our P1s started full time and we’re all getting along amazingly 😍

Monday

Practising counting forwards and backwards from 1-10 using giant Numicon. We had great fun.

Tuesday

Dalia shared with us some of her learning during Lockdown. She learnt Spanish! Miss Mackay was blown away with how hard Dalia worked. We can’t wait until Dalia teaches us how to count to 10 in Spanish next week.

Wednesday

 

Look at these Number Talk geniuses! Everyone works so hard during Number Talk. This is how we start off our numeracy lessons. Through doing this we are developing our conceptual understanding of Numeracy.

Thursday

We we’re using Paint on the tablets. We learnt how to use different tools and had fun exploring. We also practised how to open a new document.

Friday

We had so much fun today making alternative endings for the Three Little Pigs. Some of the suggestions were:

  • The wolf was hunting the pigs with his brother.
  • The wolf was being kind to the pigs because he was a vegetarian.
  • The Three Little Pigs all built houses made of bricks so none could be blown down.

Super work this week, everyone! I can’t wait until next week. Have a super weekend 😀

What a super week! We’ve all settled in really well and have loved meeting and spending time with our new P1s.

We’ve done amazing getting used to our ‘new normal’.

Here are some of the things we’ve been up to this week:

In Numeracy we have been ordering and sequencing numbers to 10 and 20, forwards and backwards.

In Literacy we have been learning new sounds and recapping sounds we already know (P2). We have also been sequencing the story of The Gingerbread Man.

In Health we have been learning about different feelings and emotions. We’ve talked lots about different strategies we can use to help with our emotions.

In IDL (topic) we have been learning about our local community. On Friday afternoon the P2s started our local community map. We’ve made roads, coloured in cars and people in our community. Wait until you see our school!

Can’t wait until next week!
