Betty o Barley and Harry o Hay are getting married. Betty wanted a dress of white feathers but this week there a problem, there were no feathers to make her dress and she couldn’t get a dress like that! Primary 1/2 decided to help her by designing some dresses. Here they are, I wonder which one she would choose?
Tiddler is a lovely story about a fish. Primary 1/2 enjoyed it, getting into the read and respond mood with parts of it. They even linked it to other things. Through discussion in the book Primary 1/2 thought they could help Miss Skate teach the Tiddler and the class about different types of boats to watch out for. They worked in pairs to draw different types of boats. They are pretty cool, please take a look.
With his Stick Lady Love and their family of three.
One day he wakes early and goes for a jog,
Stick Man, oh Stick Man, beware of the …..
Primary 1/2 have been busy making maps for Stick Man today. This will help him find his way around and hopefully stop him from being taken and used for other things!
Have a look at our maps
The class worked very well together in pairs and had a great time making a map for Stick Man, remembering all the things he had to try and avoid so that he got back to The Family Tree at the end of his jog!
We listened to the story called ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ and then we followed it up with ‘What the Ladybird Heard Next’
It got us thinking that we could be quite creative and make some ladybird stones while we were doing outdoor learning. We had great fun, here are some pictures. We learned about colours, symmetry, numbers, ladybirds, language and many other things. All whilst having fun and working with friends.
Primary 1/2 were learning how to write instructions. Before they began writing, they made some tea so that they knew what to write. They also took the pictures of them making the tea. Have a look, they really enjoyed it.
Play is a really important part of our P1/2 class. The children have free choice during Task time to learn through their play. Play opportunities provided in our class often relate to the learning taking place that week or developing a specific skill but also takes account of their interests. Play opportunities are changed regularly, with some activities being left out longer if they prove popular! We are encouraging the children to suggest what they would like to play with so we can cater for their interests. Have a look at the play activities set out for this coming week…
Jasmin chose the Fine Motor Skills “Moon Shoes” activity when playing today. She was very proud that she had tied the laces by herself, well done Jasmin! This is an excellent skill to learn and now you can be a helper for all those laces that become undone in P1/2!
