We have had such a fun and busy week in P2/1. The new P1s have settled in really well. They have been enjoying their lunches in the dining hall and playing outside in the playground with their friends.
We have been doing lots of learning, inside and outside the classroom. For our Stick Man topic, as well as reading lots of stories, we’ve been collecting sticks and leaves, making model stick men and acting out the story. We’ve also been drawing Stick Man pictures with black pens.
We have also started our number work, counting out lots of items and practising forming numbers.
We’ve also had lots of chats about how we’re feeling, and making plasticine pictures of our faces to show how we’re feeling.
The P1s and P2s have been working so well together – it’s been a great first week!
We have been exploring our feelings in ELC. Sometimes we all feel worried or cross and we have been exploring things that can help us feel a bit better. We enjoyed playing outside in the warm soapy water. Blowing bubbles helped us to practice taking deep, calm breaths!
We had great time in ELC recently celebrating ten years of the new school building. We explored the number ten, played some party games and of course enjoyed blowing out ten candles before our ten-themed snack!
