We have had another busy week in Primary 1 as we have been learning about the i and p sound. We have been practising how to write numbers 1-3 and we took part in some ordering and counting activities.
On Thursday we sang some songs about colours and did some finger painting to make rainbow pictures.
We were also very excited to take home our beanstalks which we planted last week. We have learned how to plant seeds in soil and what plants need to grow. Feel free to send in updates on your beanstalk!
Finally, we are looking forward to welcoming families on Thursday 12th September to our Open Afternoon which takes place from 2.45-3.25. See you then!
Last week we enjoyed our first school assembly. We listened well and enjoyed taking part in some of the songs. Both P1 classes received special certificates from Mrs Wilson to congratulate them on their fantastic start to school life at Kingsland. Keep it up everyone!
Over the past few weeks we have enjoyed exploring traditional tales such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Today we heard the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff and made predictions about what would happen next.
Afterwards, the children had the option of making a scary troll mask or goat mask. The children listened well and developed their cutting skills too.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new Primary 1s and families. We have been delighted with how well the children have already started to pick up our daily routines and have managed well in the lunch hall. We have had a busy week exploring the classroom, playing in our outdoor areas and have enjoyed sharing stories and songs together.
We will update our blog regularly so please visit from time to time to see what we have been up to.
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?
