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.

Visit from the school nurse

We had a visit from the school nurse.  She came to speak to us about staying healthy and looking after ourselves.

She measured us to see how we were doing too.  It was great to have a visitor in class!  Zoe even read us a story about bucket filling and making sure we are kind.  Then she had us doing some activities too.

Maths isn’t all about sums and writing

We are currently learning number in Primary 1/2 and we begin each maths lesson with some activities.  These can be games, paired work or problem solving.  It helps to get our brains thinking and most importantly it is fun!

Here are some pictures of us doing maths with either Miss Morrison or Mrs Inkster.

This is us doing some problem solving with cubes and trying to find different shapes and patterns for ten cubes to link to the number.

       

Here we are  ordering numbers to 10 and beyond with our partners.

And here we are doing a number activity with Miss Morrison.

Free time…..what to do I wonder?

We had some free time today and chose to do lots of different things.  Nothing was set, it was all our own interest.  This is how we kept ourselves busy.  We had a picnic, made chilli chicken, pizza in a pan and used the pots for musical instruments.

Some of us made a city, an aeroplane, a car and people out of construction materials.

Others decided to write letters and colour in, taking great care to do their best, as always.

A few of us went fishing, designed tractors, did jigsaws and found dinosaurs.

Inventors and designers were also in the classroom.  A tv is important in our eyes so it was important to design a tv with magical day and night tv screens at the same time.  It was just as important to have the switches, control panel and sockets at the back of it!

Gruffalo foraging and cooking

We had a week where we read about The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson.  We read The Gruffalo’s Child too.  We also heard them in Shetland Dialect.  That was very interesting as there were some words we had never heard before!

After that we went out foraging for ingredients to make some Gruffalo recipes.  Here are photos of us doing that.  We had great fun and used great language and role play used in our cooking and searching.

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.
