Primary 1 Junk Model Street

Primary 1 had lots of fun on Friday designing, building and decorating their junk model buildings. The children had some super ideas and made houses, hotels, hospitals, police stations and shops. They had to be creative and use their problem solving skills as they worked out how to attach the boxes securely to each other.

Then we put the buildings together to make a street. We enjoyed walking down the street. Can you spot yours?

Primary 1 Beltane Rosettes

This morning, the Primary 1s worked with the Primary 7s to make wonderful Beltane Rosettes to wear for the Beltane lunch.

The children demonstrated some great team work as they worked together to follow the instructions, practise their cutting skills and share resources.

We look forward to wearing our badges with pride on Thursday. Hooray!


Primary 1 – er words

Last week we were learning about the er sound. The class have completed magnetic whiteboard activities, have been reading and writing words containing the er sound and have had opportunities to revise sounds we have learned previously.  The children also enjoyed consolidating their learning through engaging with a range of activities as seen below:

The children had to draw around the cracker template, cut out the cracker shape and decorate it with colourful paper.

The children had a lot of fun creating, watching and performing stories in our finger puppet theatre!

One of our most popular activities this week was drawing and labelling some traffic lights with the words red, amber and green.

Many of the children enjoyed drawing some mermaids under the sea!

Here are some of the words which you can make, say, write and draw:

her, herb, kerb, herd, fern advert, sherbet, person, mermaid, faster, under, over etc.
