P1A learning 22nd March2019

Hi everyone  another busy week.

We had a fab music lesson from Miss Hunter, short video on twitter. Children love these lessons where they are learning about rhythm and beats.

We reviewed what we had learned about Spring and created a learning journey. that is displayed in our class. We also hade a great IDL lesson about butterflies, that involved Science/life cycles  Maths/symmetry  art/creative  literacy/ talking and listening,  then we had fun outdoors trying to make them fly.

We are continuing to learn about money and developing our mental maths skills of addition and subtraction with the coins in our play flower/fruit shop.

We also have had a lovely donation of fruit from Tesco Silverburn for our Friday Fruit Tuck shop.

P1A learning this week

Hi everyone this week we have been very busy learning about Spring. We know about the names of baby animals, we can talk about Spring weather and we have been planting seeds and bulbs.

In numeracy we are learning to subtract from 10 and are also learning about money while using coins in our healthy fruit tuck shop. We have lots of people getting stars on their STAR CHALLENGE CHART.

In literacy Carissa, Tedddy,  Sara and Julia are our Star Writers because they can use joining words in their writing.

 

Our learning 22/2/19

What  busy week. We have been learning the ‘ng’ sound and we can use our phoneme boards to make the word/write the word and say the word.

We have been counting in 10’s 5’s and 2’s and we are using our mental maths skills to add in tens.!!! yes we really are.

We had a nice surprise when we won the best class at having Healthy snacks this week , our total was 69%.

Teddy was very proud at being our Numeracy Champion, well done to him. He loves his number work.

We are starting to learn about the Season of Spring and we have lots of ideas about what we would like to find out.
