Lots of Learning in P1D

This week in Primary One we have had so much fun learning new things and working together.

We have worked hard on out new topic ‘Weather’ learning about rain, thunder and lightening and the ‘Water Cycle’. We created a fantastic weather station for our role play area. When we are at the area some of us are the weather presenters on the TV and the others are the audience. Have a look at the picture below to see it.

This week we used a range of musical instruments and things from around the classroom to create a short musical piece with dancing and sound. We worked in small groups and presented our finished work to the class. We were fabulous!

In Maths we learned about Data Handling, making Bar Charts, Pictograms and Carroll Diagrams. Look at our wonderful work on our display wall. Can you tell from our Pictogram which is our favourite weather? We also continued to practise subtraction using lots of fun games and activities.

Nice Subtraction game

We like this counting to 100 song


Primary 1 Room 11 and 12

Primary 1 are working hard on developing our gymnastics skills. We have been doing so well that as an extra challenge we got out the wall bars in the gym hall and had lots of fun!

Peter – “I enjoyed climbing in gym.”

Kelsey – “I liked going down the slide in gym – it was super fast and fun.”

Olivia – “I liked the climbing wall. It was really high and I was a bit scared but it was fun.”

We have also being taking advantage of the lovely weather this week and taken lots of our learning outdoors. We particularly enjoyed our outdoor maths lessons where we were practising some more subtraction using different activities.

Holly – “I enjoyed taking away outside when we were racing in teams.”

Rebecca – “I liked the outdoor takeaway carousel activities.”

A great start back for P2C!

We have had a fantastic and very busy first week back!

“One of the best parts of the week was getting to try out some Yoga in the class and it was all about a Harry Potter story. We had to follow the instructions and make poses. The best pose was the wand pose and lunge.” Lauren.

“I liked all of the Yoga poses but my favourite one was the lion pose for the house that Harry Potter was in. It was good because I haven’t seen the films yet.” Caiden.

” I would really like to do the “Star Wars” adventure next week.” Zak.

We have also been rehearsing our class Assembly and are really looking forward to sharing it with you all on Friday  22nd April at 09:30am.
