P1 Red Term 4

Hello from everyone in P1 red.

We have been having a very busy final term. Last week we had a wonderful trip to the Aberdeen Science Centre where we learned all about floating and sinking and had a chance to explore all the different activities in the centre. Thank you to all our parent helpers for making the trip such a great day out.

 

Our sports day was a huge success. Along with the rest of the school we walked to the sports village and everyone tried their best at the javelin, long jump and races.

 

Maths:

We have been learning all about measuring height, length, weight and capacity. We made predictions about how heavy different objects would be and worked together to find out if our estimates were correct.

We are expanding our knowledge of number to include tens and units and counting in jumps of 2, 5 and 10.

The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch:

Our topic this term is based on the wonderful book ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ by Ronda and David Armitage.

 

Literacy:

In our writing lessons, we have been learning about writing instructions. We wrote instructions to help our class monster learn how to brush his teeth and how to make a sandwich. We are continuing to learn new phonemes and new common words every week.

 

Other news:

This week we are learning about healthy eating and nutrition.

We had a P1-3 talent show this term. Two of our classmates in P1 Red told some wonderfully funny jokes to everyone in the hall that made us all laugh a lot. Well done!

We finished our last session of drama this term. We have really enjoyed working with Mrs Hutton and have had a lot of fun performing.

In music we have been singing and learning about pulse and rhythm. We really enjoyed singing the song ‘Happy’ and ‘Our House’ and moving to the pulse, rhythm and trying to find the beat.

Over the past number of weeks, we enjoyed going to our swimming lessons in the Sports Village. We have been learning how to improve our confidence and skills in the water.

Thank you to everyone for your support during this busy final term in P1.
