Learning experiences you can expect to explore in Primary 1/2 are…
Fine motor, scissor skills, teamwork, painting, pre-handwriting skills, role play, phonics, storytelling, music, relaxation and sooooo much more!
Mrs Blair and the children enjoy getting outside and using the natural environment to enhance learning and understanding. P1/2 were learning about symmetry and created symmetrical pictures/patterns outside in the playground. What sort of things would you like to learn outside? Do you enjoy being outside and why? Whats your favourite thing to do outside?
Once a month local nursery children are invited to Mrs Blair’s class to support and enhance transition from nursery to primary school. This helps the children get to know their new school, build a rapport with Mrs Blair, become familiar with routines and build positive relationships with children who will be in their class next year. Each visit is designed to support your child’s confidence, trust, reassurance, self-esteem, etc. I look forward to our monthly visits. Below are some photos from previous transition visits.
Our classroom is full of wonderful items/objects to help us with our learning. The children enjoy working together and learning from each other. Good listening and turn taking help us as we learn. Have you played a game recently where you need to listen to others and take turns? Teamwork makes the dream work! 🙂
Each day your child will be engaged in short free flow learning activities to support and enhance learning. This helps support retrieval learning and transitions them into main teaching sessions within Literacy and Numeracy. The children enjoy these sessions as they get the chance to embed skills learnt during teaching slots, they can challenge themselves on tasks they found difficult or simply work with a partner to challenge each other. It is such a good opportunity for the children to explore and discuss their learning informally with staff and peers. They are very good at building each others confidence and giving positive praise to one another during this time. Social learning opportunities are essential in classrooms to build and sustain positive learning and development.
