P1B and P1S have been working hard, learning lots and having fun in our first few weeks as learners in school. The children have been exploring the values, skills and attitudes we need to take our learning forward as we progress through school. We have done so through lots of games, stories, discussion, craft and play. We have already had visitors in class, Mr Thomson, our janitor, and Mrs Rayner, our head cook, explained their respective roles in school. We loved hearing about the things they do to help us stay safe, healthy and happy in school.
Both classes have enjoyed learning our first sounds and encountering some rather wonderful number animals. Ava said, ‘I am proud of how I can write my numbers.’ There has also been
a focus on pattern in the world around us and in number. The children have demonstrated excellent understanding of repeating pattern. As Orla says, ‘a pattern has to be ordered using the same things again and again.’
