As Christmas gets ever closer Primary 1b have been very busy rehearsing our Nativity, “The Grumpy Sheep” along with P1a and P1c! All the children are working very hard on it. The Christmas Disco also took place last Tuesday. For Christmas art work to put up in the hall, the class made reindeers using the shape of their hands for the antlers. All the infant classes also had a visit from the SSPCA at one of the recent assemblies to talk about their jobs in looking after abandoned and mistreated animals.
In class we have been learning the sounds-h, w, j and v along with more common words in Literacy. In Numeracy and Maths we have been working on the numbers 17, 18, 19 and 20. The children have also been making paper chains to help decorate the Courtyard with the added focus of using patterns with the available colours. In addition we made a Bar Graph to show our favourite books from Scottish Book Week and we also made a Venn Diagram displaying toys which need to be pushed, pulled or can be both pushed and pulled in order to make them move. Keeping on the theme of Forces, the children also made spinners which when the wool is pulled the cards they decorated spin and make a lovely display.
Finally, a big congratulations to our latest two “Stars of the Week”- Hanna and Wiki!
