Primary 1 have been enjoying meeting our specialist teachers and P2 have enjoyed being reacquainted! Today, I went to see them in their Music class. They have been learning new songs and rhymes and have enjoyed using percussion instruments while singing and listening to music.
P1/2 are really enjoying class PE and other opportunities to learn in active ways. Please have a look at some of our class PE photos. The children have really enjoyed using mats, benches, hoops and raised bars to practise balancing and jumping and using different movements to travel over, under and around. Today we used the book “Dear Zoo” to help us think about using our bodies in different ways, just like the animals in the story! P1 have also been jumping during language and literacy time to show how many words are in a spoken sentence.
We have enjoyed listening to some old favourite traditional stories over the past couple of weeks. So far we have looked at The Gingerbread Man and now we are looking at The Three Little Pigs. It has been a sticky time in our classroom making mosaic gingerbread men and designing a new house for one of the pigs!
We are looking forward to using our play opportunities to re-tell these stories with friends.
P1 have been busy counting and learning how to write some numbers over the past couple of weeks. Numbers 2 and 3 are quite tricky so we had fun making them in lots of different ways. We are in the middle of making our own number line too to hang up in the classroom.
