Good morning Primary 1!
What another fantastic week we’ve had in P1!
This week in literacy we consolidated the sounds r,m,d,e,c and k. The children were asked to sort pictures into the correct category, make these letters using playdough, find the letters on the magnetic board and come up with new words beginning with these sounds. We explored prediction strategies during our reading time and were asked to discuss our favourite part of the story. We explored Guy Fawkes/ fireworks and created a persuasive writing piece to encourage safety with fireworks.
We have now started addition in maths (within 10) and used different concrete materials (such as blocks, 10 frames, fingers and counters) to solve addition problems. We introduced the + and = sign to the children and encouraged them to understand written maths problems.
In P.E. we continue to explore ball skills – throwing and catching, football and dribbling. We are working on developing our fitness and team working skills. In French we have been learning about basic greetings and now we are looking at French colours. Have a look at the French rainbow song if you get a chance! : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARBKK0-sJGU
We also looked into inheritance this week, discussing the similarities we share with our family. We also drew a detailed picture of our family and discussed all of the members in our family. We were given the opportunity to explore fireworks through expressive arts and created our own fireworks using chalk, paint, cotton buds and forks. We really enjoyed this activity!
Please find the homework for the following two weeks attached below:
Please remember to bring in your reading book every day into school. P.E. days are on Tuesday and Wednesday and remember to labeling all items of clothing. Thank you for your continued support with this.
