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.
