In Literacy we have covered the last of the initial sounds, q and x, and covered three more common words. We also spent a week revisiting some of our most recent initial sounds and common words.
We have been doing lots of work in Numeracy on addition using concrete materials, pictorial questions and abstract sums. In addition we have been practising counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s.
Mrs Bryceland visited us this week and we did some fun music games which also helped with learning initial sounds. We finished this week off by celebrating Robert Burns’ Day with Primaries 1a and 1c along with some of our friends from Thornlaw Nursery.
Our “Stars of the Week” since we started our third term have been-Lakkshana, Sara, Carrick and Tobiasz. Well done to you all!
For the next two weeks we will be marking “International Fortnight” by looking at the cultures and traditions of countries represented in our school through fun activities and stories. Finally, we will be busy rehearsing our song for the school’s special Scottish Assembly in just under two weeks time when we will be saying a fond farewell to Mr Tracey after many years of dedicated hard work for St Vincent’s. Please look out for the song in homework folders to practise at home.
Well, another very busy week in P 1a. This week we were learning about Scotland and celebrating the life of a Robert Burns. We learned Scottish songs, made tartan by weaving over and under, we painted tartan and made kilts, we made our own Scottish flags and heard a story about the Loch Ness monster……..phew!!!
we also became scientists and tried making our own snow❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️,! Yes we really did.
our stem challenge was to build a den and work as a team. This was great fun and very successful.
In class lots of children are having a go at our numeracy star challenge and our writing table challenge.
keep up the good work everyone👍
With starting a new year, we have started our third term! Our Primary One pupils are now halfway through their first year at St Vincent’s!
Mrs Bryceland visited us on Monday morning for Music which was a lovely way to start our new term. We also got straight back to learning with us looking at the sounds y and z as well as the next three common words in Literacy and in Numeracy we have been working on addition and some number stories throughout our first week back.
Monday saw us take down our Christmas decorations in our classroom as we learned about the feast day of the Epiphany. We heard the story of the visit to the baby Jesus by the Three Wise Men and why Mary and Joseph had to take Jesus and flee Bethlehem.
On Friday our class started ERIC (Everybody Reading In Class) time where the pupils each take a book from the library and, with support, discuss such questions as who are in the story, where does the story take place, what is happening in the story, etc. As you can see Primary 1b have made a busy and positive start to term three!
Happy New Year from P6! This week we chatted about what we enjoyed last year and what we were looking forward to in 2020. We wrote about our goals for this year. We learned about Growth Mindset and took a quiz to see what kind of mindset we all have which was very interesting.
