This week in Literacy we were have been learning ‘oo’ and ‘ew’ as in grew. We have found that ‘oo’ is mainly found in the middle of a word and ‘ew’ is mainly found at the end. We have also been practising our new tricky words – her and of.
We have been learning about Spring this week and had fun going outside to look for the first signs of Spring around the school. We found some flowers and saw buds on the trees and bushes and were excited to find a nest high up in one of the trees. When we got back to the classroom we did some fantastic ‘Spring Writing’ which you will be able to see on display when you come in for your Parents’ Evening appointment.
In Numeracy we have been continuing our learning about subtraction within 10 and have focused on subtracting from 10, 9 and 6.
We found our work on Money a bit tricky this week. We were trying to work out which coins we could use to make up a given amount. We were good at working out numbers which made the amount we needed but got a bit muddled deciding which coins were real. We had lots of discussion about whether there was a 3p, 4p, 6p, 7p or 8p coin! We enjoyed playing an online money game, working on sorting, ordering and counting coins (single coins to 10p and 1p to 10p). You could play this at home too – https://www.topmarks.co.uk/money/coins-game.
Within our Transport topic we managed to finish our junk modelling. Everyone chose a form of transport to design. There was lots of discussion and problem solving during our building as we tried to work out the best way to structure our models. Everyone used their imaginations very well indeed and successfully worked out how best to fix their models together.
In Health and Wellbeing, we have begun to see our plant life cycle in action. Our sunflower seeds have already started to grow into seedlings. We have been looking after them carefully and have been very good at taking turns to water them.
Have a lovely weekend.
Mrs Reid and Primary 1B
