# Drumming with Joy

We have been really lucky to get Joy in for drumming on the last day of term. It was great fun!  Have a look at our photos, it was AWESOME!

# Tiddler

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.

# We all need some down time

By the end of the week we are exhausted! When this happens it is good to have some down time and just have free choice.  Mrs Wells let that happen on Friday, take a look.

# Active maths

Part of maths each day is learning through activities or active maths. This can done in many ways.  We are currently learning number at the moment in Primary 1/2. Primary 2 are making a number line to hop along to help with their maths.  Primary 1 are making numbers 1 and 2 with Playdoh.  Then they were making one or two things to go with the number, some of these things were in the book Tiddler by Julia Donaldson.

# Stick Man

Stick Man lives in the family tree

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!

# Friendship – health and wellbeing

We have been learning about relationships, in particular looking at friendships.

We had to sort pictures to find friends.  Then we spoke about how friends can fall out.  Most importantly, we learned how friends can help each other and make things better to stop them from falling out.

It was a really interesting discussion and now we are trying to make sure that we don’t fall out with our friends.  If we do, we know what we can do to make up and be friends again.

# Learning through play

Some of us have been wanting to work with letters and the alphabet so decided to make up the alphabet puzzle.  We didn’t want our photo taken though!  Katie, Nora and Lottie Mae all helped to make the jigsaw.

Others wanted to make their jigsaw a little trickier so decided to do it upside down so that they couldn’t see the picture.  They worked together to make sure the piece all fit together correctly.  Archie, Nora and Lauren all worked together as a team!

Others decided to make lovely patterns using the mosaics.  It must have a been a camera shy day as they too didn’t want their picture taken.  Maximus made these lovely patterns.

This also inspired Nora to make her own pattern.

Ollie decided he wanted to build a tower using the lego.
