P1 Update 2.12.19

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019

What a busy time we have had.  Nativity rehearsal is fully underway and all children have been working very hard to learn their parts and sing all the songs.  We can’t wait to perform for everyone.

In maths we have been learning strategies for addition. We have enjoyed using different materials to make 2 groups and then add them together.

The season of Advent is upon us and we are preparing for the birth of Jesus.  We cut out our hand prints and glued them together in a circle to create an Advent Wreath.  We learned that the wreath is a circle of evergreen branches and a reminder that God never changes.  We know that there are 5 candles on the wreath and that one is lit each week at mass, counting down the weeks until Jesus’ birthday.

P.1 Update 12.11.19

Monday, November 11th, 2019

Another busy start to the week.  This week we are learning the letters k and ck and we enjoyed learning the Jolly Phonics songs for these letters.  We  have been practicing the correct letter formation in our workbooks and we made kites up in the clouds.

We are continuing with our IDL topic of ‘where food comes from.’ We created our own vegetable farm in the sand tray.  We planted broccoli, onions, brussel sprouts and carrots.  It was great fun planting them in rows to look like a real field.  We sketched some fruit and vegetables that begin with k and c, carrots, kiwi and corn.

We are making good progress in our reading too.  We are getting good at pointing to individual words when we read them.  We enjoy the stories all about Biff, Chip, Kipper and Floppy.

Did you know that Pierre has a pet rabbit? Pierre loves lots of different animals but he’s a bit scared of some.

The French Phrase of the Fortnight this time is… J’ai un lapin.

It means I have a rabbit.

Do you have a pet? Why not try these phrases to explain which pet you have?

J’ai un chien. (I have a dog).

J’ai un chat. (I have a cat).

J’ai un poisson rouge. (I have a goldfish).

J’ai un hamster. (I have a hamster).

J’ai un serpent. (I have a snake).

J’ai une perruche. (I have a budgie).

J’ai une souris. (I have a mouse).

A Super Week in Primary 4!

Friday, September 27th, 2019

Primary 4 have had a super week!

We welcomed a new pupil to our class and we are making sure that she feels welcomed and included.

We have worked very hard yet again. We completed our Class Charter, we played Benchball, we acted out a story in Drama, we added tens to 3-digit numbers, we made posters about the Water Cycle, we learned about pets in French, we wrote our own poems and we started to prepare for our School Mass next Friday.

We have been working on our non-fiction books all week. One of our books is called Odd Eggs so Mrs Singer brought in a real ostrich egg to show us. It was huge!

Here are some of our thoughts:

I like adding and subtracting in Maths. Sam

I like doing the Reflection. I like thinking back. Mario

I liked seeing the ostrich egg. Jessica, Natasza and Kourtney
