We got sneaky and used our invisible ink pens to write ‘it’s all around the room. We could see them with our special light, but shhhhhhh don’t tell the Sound Snatcher!

Numeracy - We have been looking at our numbers 1-5 in consolidation. We can now use the language of “one more” and “one less”, look at our pictures! We noticed that when we added one more each time, our cubes looked like stairs!

Forest School/Literacy: Primary 1 have been enjoying our book ‘A Squash and a Squeeze’, we took this book to the forest today and created our own houses with sticks, trunks and leaves. What fantastic fun! 🌳 

Term 1b Week 1 - 01.11.21

Numeracy - ALL THINGS FIVE! πŸ– Primary 1 have been representing, composing and writing the numeral 5. Our rhyme has been particularly useful this week ‘short neck, belly fat, number five wears a hat’. 

Literacy - This week we have had the introduction of sounds. Primary 1 have started with the sounds ‘m’ and ‘a’. This has been great fun, we had a visit from Ally the Alligator and fed him our handwritten letter A’s. For the letter ‘m’ we used brown muddy paint and shaving foam. This was MARVELLOUS. 

Week 7 - 18.10.21

WAU/Literacy - Did you know baby pigs are called piglets, mummy pigs are called sows and daddy pigs are called boars? P1 loved meeting Percy and Penny the piglets. We said they felt like “velvet”, but unfortunately we didn’t appreciate their smell 🐷 🐷 🐷

Literacy/WAU/Outdoor Learning - We have been enjoying the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’ this week which has been particularly interesting as this fits into our FARM topic.

To top it all off we were kindly left eggs from Betty and Bertha which we scrambled the next day for our snack, YUM! πŸ£πŸ”πŸ₯šπŸž
