We have been very busy over the last few weeks in Primary 1. In Topic Maths we have just finished learning about money. We looked at coins up to 20p and counted coins up to 10p. To help us learn we used pretend money to buy things in a shop and played money games. Our new maths topic is position. We are learning words that tell us where things are such as in front of, above, below and behind. Through our Farm topic we are also learning information handling and are making pictograms using farm animals.
In Language, we are learning our long vowel sounds. These sounds will help us when we sound out words in our reading books and when we need to try and write different words. Primary 1 have been using these writing skills this week to write about their trip to Mill Farm. We had a think about what we did there, what we saw and what our favourite part was.
In Gym, we are continuing to learn our basic skills such as throwing, catching, kicking and bouncing. We are really confident with these now! We have also just started athletics so we have been hurdling, running in a relay, long jumping and running long distance. Every week we will learn more athletic skills and some of these will help us at sports day.
