It has been another exciting week in primary 1. Primary 1 had the opportunity to learn more about dinosaurs this week and have begun their own dinosaur fact files. They wrote facts about the Tyrannosaurus Rex this week and discussed whether this dinosaur was a carnivore or herbivore. They have learned about the role of a palaeontologist and have explored this through play in the classroom.
In phonics this week, the children learned the sounds j and v through our Jolly Phonics programme. They have been encouraged to blend words using these sounds and continue to work on forming their letters correctly.
In numeracy we have been learning about the numbers 16-20 and how they can be split into 10 and 6, 10 and 7 etc. They children have been using 10 frames and rekenreks to show how these numbers can be constructed.
We have started our Bounceback programme in health and wellbeing to develop resilience and positive thinking. They have explored this through stories and circle time games. The children have been learning how to say the days of the week and numbers 1-5 in French through fun songs! They are continuing to practise their Scottish Poem in the classroom, however please keep practising this at home as all children will be required to recite this on Wednesday 22nd. We now have P.E. on a Wednesday and Thursday so please make sure your child is coming to school with a labelled P.E. kit on those days.
Thank you all for your continued support. Have a great weekend!
