We’ve been Busy, busy again! We had fun at the end of the day on Monday, dookin’ for apples which we gobbled up straight after, enjoying the novelty of eating in class.
We have been reading our new reading books with our reading groups several times this week. We are really good at reading the words aloud and are working hard to listen as others read and we follow the words on the page. We also share our ideas and opinions on the story and listen to those of others. We chose the names of our reading groups ourselves and have decided on Elephants, Pandas, Polar Bears and Kangaroos – four fantastic names!
We have also been working hard using the sounds c, k and ck. We have been writing quite a bit in our jotters too, sounding out sentences using all the sounds we know and learning how to leave a space between words as well as trying to write on the line.
We are trying to get outside as much as possible when the weather is good. We visited the outdoor classroom again on Monday and practised our ‘c’ sound. We left a large stone ‘c’ on the ground as a surprise for others to see when they come in, but we won’t tell them it was us!
We practised our common words in the gym this week, enjoying the big space to run around and make a lot of noise as we played games to learn the words.
We have been looking more closely at adding, learning all the addition sums for numbers to 5. We are really pretty good at saying all the sums that add to 2 and 3 and will be working on 4 and 5 next week. We’re also working on a wall display so we can use this to help us as we work. Mrs Kennedy has lots more games planned for next week to help us to learn all the number facts.
Mrs Kennedy has just downloaded the songs for our nativity The Innkeepers Breakfast, we will start learning them on Monday, Christmas is about to begin in P1B!
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
P1B and Mrs Kennedy
