It’s been another exciting week in Primary 1! We worked together to make pancakes on Tuesday and created our own pancake instructions to make them at home. In phonics we learned the sound ‘th’ and identified words with this sound at the beginning and end. Our common words were ‘this’, ‘that’ and ‘then’ and we practised writing these words into a sentence.
In maths this week, we have been consolidating our understanding of addition and subtraction by using different strategies. We learned how to use a number line, 10 frames, rekenreks and cubes to solve problems.
We explored different dinosaur extinction theories and wrote about what we think happened to the dinosaurs. We also replied to a letter from Professor Rex and discussed what we have learned so far about dinosaurs. The children have really loved this topic!
In other areas, we learned French commands through a fun interactive dance. We learned all about the things that are safe/ unsafe to put inside our bodies and we were given the opportunity to explore our senses in the nursery garden. In P.E. the children have started a new gymnastics topic and continue to learn about co-ordination through ball skills.
Primary 1 have P.E. on a Wednesday and Thursday so please make sure your child has a labelled P.E. kit with them on these days. As the children go down to the Nursery Garden on a Wednesday afternoon, it is advised that they bring a pair of welly boots with them on this day.
We are so excited for our class trip to the Museum! Please make sure the yellow form is returned to ensure your child can attend.
Thank you for your continued support,
Primary 1 teachers
