Today we enjoyed some Halloween Fun in primary 1. We shared some scary stories about the Funny Bones, listened to some spooky songs and music. We made a pumpkin mask and a ghost to take home.
Happy Halloween 🎃
Primary 1 have been working hard to learn the “j” and the “w” sounds. We finished making our jellyfish and wrote “j” words together, thinking carefully about the sounds we could hear in the middle and at the end of words.
Today we were learning about the “w” sound. Michael had a bag of wigs and used his wand to make different spells! We made our own wands to take home to help us learn our new sound.
This afternoon we started reading in our groups. It was very exciting. We sat around the table with Mrs Collins and looked at the cover of the book , thinking about what the story could be about, then as we looked through the book together we talked about the pictures and the story. We took turns to read the pages, pointing at each word with our finger and using our sounds to help us read the words. We then finished by reading the book altogether. Our reading days with Mrs Collins will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
We had a very busy day in primary 1. We began by shaing our news with each other and then we were practising using our tweezers to lift buttons, it was quite tricky as some of the buttons were very small!
We were practising our sounds and using our sounds to write words. Our new sound today was “j”, Michael told us a story about a very wobbly jelly and we started to make a jellyfish to take home.
In our number work we have started to think about adding numbers. We laid out cubes in two sets and then added them together, recording our answers underneath.
During our activity time we worked together to do different jigsaws, we used plasticine, leaves and little sticks to make hedgehogs and practised our drawing and cutting skills to make different pictures.
Can you find the hedgehogs?
As well as helping us with our learning Mrs Ward has another job, she is a graphic illustrator. On Friday she shared a book with Primary 1 that she has just finished the illustrations for. It was a book all about different letter sounds. We loved looking at the pictures, Mrs Ward had linked all the pictures with her use of different patterns. Our favourite pictures were the koala and the yak!
In numeracy primary 1 are thinking about more than.
We had to make a tower that was taller than our pencil. We had to work out how many cubes high was our pencil and then think about how many more cubes were in the tower.
Learning about “f”
Michael the puppet had drawn some pictures. We had to guess what the picture was and what sound linked each picture for example there was a picture of a clown…mmmmmm it was a “funny face”. We made f words on our whiteboards and drew and wrote words that start with f like fan and fin.
We shared stories about a fox and made a fox to take home to help us learn our new sound.
