We have had lots of fantastic learning experiences this term in Primary 2/1. Attached is an overview of the things that we have learned in class. Please also have a look at the school Twitter page to see some photographs of some of our learning.
We are looking forward to having lots of Festive Fun next week with our Christmas Mass, Online Panto, Christmas activity afternoon and Christmas movie day too.
P1 enjoyed a visit from their P7 buddies this afternoon, who came down to read a story to them. The P7 children engaged beautifully with P1, reading enthusiastically with fantastic expression and fluency. The P7 children chose great quality picture books which had their buddies smiling, talking about the pictures and laughing at the funny plots. Thank you again P7!
This week we have been using ‘Magpie Moments’ during numeracy to support our learning!
We have been answering long multiplication questions on our whiteboards and using Magpie Moments to check our answers with other people.
The children must find someone else in the class with a different answer than them, to the same question. Each child takes it in turns to explain their thinking, reasoning and strategies and explain why they are correct.
We have had a lot of fun using this method of peer assessment and the children have learned a lot from each other by talking about their strategies together!
All of the children in Primary 1 worked really hard this week to write a story about a dinosaur who came for dinner. Everyone did so well that it was hard to choose just six Star Writers. Well done to these boys and girls who put in a great effort with their stories!
In our topic this term we have been learning all about dinosaurs. We have been finding out facts about dinosaurs, reading and writing dinosaur stories, learning different dinosaur names, creating pictures of dinosaurs and we even created our own special dinosaur names for ourselves!
Here are some of the activities we have been enjoying in class:
