What a short week we had in Primary 1! We hope you all enjoyed the long, well deserved weekend. The children have been busy learning the correct formation of ‘p’ this week and have been looking at blending simple words. We focused on sorting ‘an’, ‘is’, and ‘and’ into the correct columns and practised writing these on whiteboards. It would be beneficial for the children if they keep on practising all the sounds they have learned so far at home too.
In maths the children have been using cubes, rekenreks and 10 frames to count objects up to 6. They have been using number fans to help them identify numerals up to 10 and have been counting backwards and forwards to 20. They have been focusing on forming the number 6 correctly and have been using online games to help them with this.
The children have been learning how to keep themselves and their body healthy this week. In P.E. the children worked hard on their fitness and co-ordination and they continued to explore healthy foods through play. We focused on the importance of brushing our teeth and how this helps to protect our enamel and gums. The children also learned how to write instructions and sequenced the steps of brushing teeth into the correct order. They used their knowledge of letter sounds to help them write new words.
Homework will be handed out on Tuesday the 24th September and is expected to be returned on the 8th October. The children will be given a homework folder with a grid and resources to help them complete their homework. The tasks with stars must be completed and the others are optional. If you have any questions about the homework, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us after school or contact the school office.
Thank you for your continued support.
