We have had an exceptionally busy week this week. It has been our Topic Week-People Who Help Us and we have been working on related activities. In addition, all Primary 1 classes very lucky to receive visits from Police Officer Belinda, Paramedics Elsa and Robert and Pollok Fire Brigade. All of our visitors spoke about their jobs and in what ways they help people and also showed us some of the equipment they need in their jobs. We were also fortunate to have a look inside both an ambulance and fire engine and everyone in our class had a shot of using a fire engine’s hose! A big thank you to all our visitors who made a special effort to come and talk to us!
The school had a Mass last Tuesday to celebrate St Vincent De Paul’s Feast Day which took place on September 27th while we were off. Beforehand our class had a look at the life of our Patron Saint and heard how much good work he did for the poor and the less fortunate and all the good charity work he did which continues to this day in his name throughout the world.
Primary 1b have also been continuing to do ongoing Literacy and Numeracy work. We have looked at the sounds d and e, and the numbers 8 and 9. Miss Hunter has been doing Music with us and Sarah from “Out to Play” has been in each Wednesday to continue our Eco Drama work which has, for the last two weeks, taken place in our Field of Dreams. Finally a big Well Done to Hao who is our new “Star of the Week”!
P1c have been busy bees! We have learned the new sounds r and m, within our Literacy. As well as looked closely at sentence structure. We now have a Star Writers board outside our classroom, where some fantastic work can be seen. Last week’s Star Writers were Ava Rose and Zi Xi for their Humpty Dumpty sentence, and this weeks is Miyar and Haya for their sentence. Fantastic work!
In numeracy we have been learning all about the numbers 6 and 7, as well as number order to and from 0-20. We also learned about 2d shapes.
Well done to our Stars of the Week Oliwia and Nelly!
Remember to look at our school Twitter page where there are lots of photos of us learning through play! @vincents_st
Quite a lot has been happening with P1b over the past two weeks. The biggest event would be us starting the “Out to Play” project with Sarah from the organisation. For the last two Wednesday afternoons, and for the next three Wednesday afternoons, we have been outside doing exciting activities such as hunting for a treasure chest, following a treasure map, listening and joining in with exciting stories and looking for items in the playground which could do “magic”. We are all really enjoying these lessons in outdoor learning!
In Literacy we have been learning the sounds “r” and “m” and more common words. We have also been encouraged to independently rewrite sentences in our “Big Writing”-have a go writing! In Numeracy and Maths we have been doing work on the numbers “6” and “7” and looking at 2D shapes around us in the environment.
We have also has a Consolidation Week when we revisited all the sounds, words and numbers we have worked on so far to reinforce our learning. Finally, a big “Well Done” to Lucas who has been our next “Star of the Week”.
P1c have been learning the new sounds s,i,p and n in our Literacy. In Numeracy, we looked at the numbers 2,3,4 and 5. We used many play activities to help us enhance our learning within both our Literacy and Numeracy, including play dough, painting and with glitter. We also looked at Nursery rhymes within our writing.
We have a Music teacher, Miss Hunter, each second Monday who we really look forward to seeing. We are fantastic singers!
We have been focussing on concepts of print each day, and can confidently say what each part of a book is… ask us!
Well done to our two Star of the Week’s… Kian who won his award for being such a kind friend, and Zi Xi who won her award for her fantastic effort in each area of the curriculum.
Keep up the hard work, P1c.
Primary 1b have been busy once again! We have been learning the sounds-s, i, p and n. The boys and girls know the Jolly Phonics songs for the sounds they have worked on so far-they might like to sing them at home! For Big Writing we have been acting out and writing a sentence each about the Nursery Rhymes “Jack and Jill” and “Humpty Dumpty”. In addition, we have been doing work on the numbers 2, 3, 4 and 5.
We welcomed Miss Hunter last Monday to our class for Music. Miss Hunter has been coming to our school for a few years now and the children always enjoy her lessons! We will have Music every second Monday.
A big “Well Done” to our “Stars of the week”-Jayden and Kiana! They won for being kind to their peers and trying their best with all tasks. I wonder who will be our next “Star”……
Hello everyone . We have had a busy week with lots of new learning taking place. In literacy we have learned the sounds p and n we can sing songs with actions and are getting good at forming our letters.
In numeracy we learned about the numbers 4 and 5 and we can sort and match numbers in order.
Well done to James and Kevin who have been our Starts of the Week. Both boys are able to follow class rules and set a good example of being responsible citizens.
Primary 1c have settled well in to school life. We have been learning how to hold a pencil properly, and this has helped us when learning our new sounds a, t, s, and new numbers 0,1,2.
We have also been looking at nursery rhymes, and even created an active story of Mary had a little lamb.
This week we will be looking at Creation, look out for our art display for our class altar on this.
We can’t wait to do more fantastic work in our fantastic school.
Primary 1b have settled well into Primary School life. New friends have been made both in the classroom and out in the playground too. A big ” thank you” must go to our P7 Buddies who have been been working hard to make all our new Primary Ones feel welcome and safe since starting. Keep up the good work Buddies!
A lot of learning has already been happening! Primary 1b have been busy learning about the sounds “a” and “t” and about the numbers 0 and 1. We have also had our first PE lesson with Mrs Boyle and, in addition, we spent time in the ICT suite. All of the Primary One classes also received glowing compliments on their great behaviour at the first school Mass of the school year!
Finally a big “Well Done” to P1b for doing so well this past week and a half! Let’s keep learning!:-)
Hello everyone, a great start for all our new primary ones.
We have had such a busy time and have made lots of new friends already. We are very good at following class rules and understand that we need to keep safe in school.
This week we learned about writing a and s as well as 0 and 1.
We went to the gym with Mrs Boyle and we had outdoor learning fun on the playground equipment on Friday.
Primary 4b (b being for brilliant : ) )
Have enjoyed being back at school and learning about citizenship. We have learned about Health and safety, Division and in P.E. we have started learning about tennis. In R.E we discussed how God created us in his image and we are made up of a mind, body and soul. In Art we created our own personal minions and also typed up our descriptions that we wrote during our writing lesson on Microsoft Word.
Next week we are excited about starting football training.
