Primary 1 – August 2019
Welcome to Primary 1!
I hope everyone has had a fantastic summer and is ready to start our new adventure! We are going to have lots of fun in Primary 1 and make lots of new friends. Room 1 and Room 3 will be learning together and we will have plenty of opportunities to work collaboratively with all of our Primary 1 friends.
Our gym days this year will be Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure children have shorts, t-shirt or polo shirt and indoor gym shoes. It would be great if all clothes and shoes are labelled with your child’s name to ensure things get back to the right home
Homework will generally be issued on a Monday and collected on a Friday.
We have a very exciting term ahead and look forward to posting our achievements on our page. Keep checking for updates on what we have been learning !
We have had a really busy first few weeks in Primary 1, settling in, making new friends and learning lots of new things in class and around the school.
In Literacy we have been hearing stories about Kipper, Biff and Chip. We have written some great stories about the characters and have really enjoyed playing the Splat game to help us recognise the names.
We have been learning about the letter ‘a’ and are becoming great at forming the letter correctly.
We have visited the nursery to read our stories to our nursery friends.
In Numeracy we have been working hard to write and form our numbers the correct way and have been busy doing lots of activities, including chalk playground writing, rainbow numbers, write and wipe cards and fun games on the C- Touch.
We are looking at Materials as part of our Science programme and can name different types of materials. We heard the story of the 3 Little Pigs and discussed the materials they used to build their houses. We used various materials to build houses and tried to blow them down!
We are looking forward to showing you our classroom on Friday 6th of September, see you then.
We have had great fun making, reading and writing our new words using the magnetic boards!
We had great fun during our Numeracy Open Morning in October. Thank you for coming along!
We were weighing different kinds of food, buying tasty treats using pennies, creating our own recipes for pizza and making symmetry pizzas too. We had a busy morning!
Our pizzas tasted delicious!
We have been exploring 2D shapes over the last couple of weeks.
We printed shape pictures with paint, created shape houses, sorted shape letters, used carpet shapes to practise tiling, looked at shapes around the school, made dough shapes and played shape games on the C Touch.
We have had great fun!
