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!
