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!
Play in P1/2 is out of this world!
This has been a busy week for building in P1/2!
We were all very proud of the children who managed to fit the blocks back in the box at tidy up time (except for a few shapes that simply couldn’t fit in!) Well done everyone!
P1 have been busy listening to and identifying the first, middle and end sound in words. We have even been using coloured salt on a light box to write words! Our words shine through!
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!
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.
