We have had a very busy start to term 3. Here is a little of taste of the things we have been doing.
We have had lots of visitors into school over the last few weeks.
The Scottish SPCA came to visit and we learned about rabbits. We found out how to look after them, what they eat and what they drink. We also learned that rabbits feel safe when they are high up so that they are away from the foxes.
We also had a visitor who did a cooking demonstration. We learned about where our food comes from – ham comes from pigs and beef comes from cows. Some people helped make beef fajitas. We all got to taste them at the end. Some of us liked them but some of us didn’t.
Claire and Liz visited us with Tudor. They look after guide dog puppies before they go to puppy school at age one and then start working at age two. We learned that Tudor isn’t allowed to play with balls because if he was leading a blind person and a ball went rolling past he might chase it.
In Jigsaw time, p2s made jam sandwiches! We were learning about the steps we need to take to be successful and then followed them.
In maths, we have been doing lots of different activities to help us learn. P1s have been learning about the number stories for numbers to 10. We have been using giant playing cards, uno cards and numicon. P2s have been learning adding and taking away with big numbers. We broke the big sums into little sums. We subtracted the tens and ones separately.
P1s have been working on blending sounds together by reading small words and matching them to pictures.
P2s have been learning about adjectives – we used them to describe a picture.
