Primary 1b-Week ending 22/11/19

The past two weeks have been busy, busy for P1b! We have been learning the sounds b and u, more common words and the numbers 15 and 16. This week we have been revising and reinforcing work covered over the past few weeks.

Mrs Bryceland was in for our Music time teaching us new songs and musical games. We have been busy doing work on our Toys topic this week. It has also been Scottish Book Week and we received our Bookbug bags with goodies and activities to help encourage a love of reading,

All Primary 1 classes have been busy rehearsing this year’s Nativity presentation. All the children are working very hard on this. A big ’Well Done’ to Primary 1b’s most recent ‘Star of the Week’ winners-Hollie and Harith!

P1a 15/11/19

We had a lovely start to the week with our Remembrance day assembly. We made some poppy crosses for our class wall and we said a poem about a little Poppy.

We are able to say/write words with the b and u sounds and we can talk about a when/who/where in our reading and writing.

We have also started practising for our Nativity and have made a fantastic start by learning some songs.

We can use ten frames to make numbers between 10 and 20, and we have had a lot of fun through play with our 3D shapes.

P1c week ending 8/11/19

P1c have been very busy. Last week was ‘Outdoor learning day’. We created bird feeders, and hung them outside on the Field of Dreams. Go on to Twitter and see some pictures of this, we had so much fun!

We learned all about Remembrance day, and created our own Poppy art for this. We also celebrated All Saints Day, and All Souls Day with the whole school, at mass with Fr. Hill.

We have learned the new sounds f and o within our Literacy, and 13 and 14 within our Numeracy. We also have looked closely at 3d shapes.

Well done to our most recent Stars of the Week Millie and Paulina, well deserved girls.

We are very excited about our upcoming Nativity show, and have started to practise for this.

Primary 1b-Week Ending 8th November ’19

Primary 1b have been involved in lots more learning over the past two weeks. In Literacy we have been finding out about the sounds g, l, f and o and have also been learning more Common Words. For “Big Writing” we are now looking at who, when and where in the sentence. We call these HOTS words. We have been working on the numbers 11, 12, 13 and 14 in Numeracy and Maths and, in addition, we have covered work on 3D shapes.

We had a whole school Mass for the Feast of All Saints’ Day, November 1st, and Father Hill also blessed our new St Vincent De Paul statue. In class we have also discussed the month of November being a month where we especially remember people who have died,  November 2nd being the Feast Day of All Souls. We have made a display of poppies for our class altar in remembrance of those who have died in wars.

Thursday 7th of November was “Outdoor Learning Day” and we went outside looking for things which begin with certain sounds and we also did our counting up to 13 and 14 outside too. We discussed how outdoors can help us in our learning too, beyond the classroom!

We have started practising our songs for the Nativity shows and for the next few weeks we will be very busy rehearsing. Very exciting! Our “Stars of the Week” have been Aliyaah and Sahm-congratulations to them both!

P1a 1/11/19

Hello everyone. Can it really be November already?  We have been learning g and l this week and lots of us are getting really good at writing our word wall words by ourselves. we have been reading The Gruffallo by Julia Donaldson and we have had great fun acting it out and re-telling the story using finger puppets.

in Numeracy we have moved on to number concepts from 11 to 20. We are practising using ten frames and talking about how we make amounts. We have also started to learn about 3D shape. Ask us to sing our song.

We had some really good pumpkins and witches from our creative work this week. The Halloween disco was also a big hit.

I think everyone really enjoyed the visit from C beebies . ridiculous rhyme show .
