P1 Blue class news

Primary 1 have been working very hard over the last few weeks.

Whatever the weather

On Friday 6th March the class went to the Lemon Tree to see a performance of “Whatever the Weather” as part of the Arts Across Learning festival.

It was a beautiful show about Mr Rainy Day and Mrs Sunshine and their weather house. The children enjoyed watching how the characters reacted to the changing weather and the fun antics that ensued.

Phonics
The children have been working very hard to consolidate their learning of the ng, ch, sh and th sounds. Next week they will be introduced to the “wh” sound while revising the sounds b, u, h, w, and j. This week the new spelling words are out, now and new. Next week they will be learning the words old, do and going.

Maths
The children have been learning to count, write and sequence numbers to 20. They have enjoyed playing lots of games to reinforce their learning.

The children have had lots of fun singing and dancing to this song which reminds them how to count to 20.

Project
The children have been learning about pigs and sheep as part of the farm topic. On Thursday, everybody brought a vegetable to school so that we could make yummy vegetable soup! Everybody loved the soup and Miss MacDonald and Mrs Craig enjoyed eating the soup with the children. This will lead into next week’s project lessons where we will be learning about food that is grown on farms.

World Book Day

Primary one had a fantastic day celebrating World Book Day. We re-read the three books that the children received in their Book Bug packs, and the children voted for their favourite one. The children enjoyed casting their vote in our special ballot box and then counting the votes to find out the winning book. As you can see from their bar graph, Robot Rumpus was the clear winner!

 
In the afternoon of World Book Day we had a special visit from some of the P7 pupils who came to read stories to the children.  The children really enjoyed having the older children read stories to them, it was a highlight of the day and something that we will definitely do again in the future!
