What the ladybird heard

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.

What will you play with?

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…

Shape and Symmetry

For our end of term Maths assessment task, the pupils have enjoyed creating robots that have control panels that can be changed.  The first control panel we made had to have a repeated 2D shape pattern.  Some pupils chose to colour the patterns in order too.  The second control panel needed to show symmetry.  This was harder and some pupils took a couple of attempts to get this right.  Symmetry has also been worked on at home  where pupils created symmetrical butterfly patterns and also as our Maths Task this week.  Some great symmetrical patterns were created.  Look at some of the super work that has been completed by P1/2!

Exploring Money

P1/2 have been learning about money during Maths time and while at play.  Our gallery of photos show some of the practical activities they’ve been doing.
