Primary One so far…

We have been busy bees in P1A/B this year. We have been learning about lots of different topics and have had fun in the process! Have a look at some of the things we have been up to in Primary One.

Our learning in maths/ numeracy is always hands-on and active. We have been practising our counting, doubles, recognising numbers and learning about money, telling time and shape.

We like getting to choose literacy activities to help learn our sounds and tricky words. We have been working hard at our rainbow boards and writing letters with our teachers.

We start our week off with some relaxing yoga in the hall on Monday morning. We have been mastering our yoga poses and our balance is improving every week.

We love our P.E. outside in the playground when the weather is nice. We having been learning how to move in different ways and are becoming very confident at skipping. Our favourite games to play are volcanoes and craters, traffic lights and Mr Men.

When we can, we take our learning outdoors. We go out every week on ‘Welly Wednesday’ for some Outdoor Learning in the nature strip/meadows but we like to to use the playground on other days when the weather is good too. We’ve made pictures out of natural materials, gathered autumn leaves, practised counting and doubles with sticks, made owl nests and much much more!

P1a & p1b Christmas Party

Not even a global pandemic could stop P1a and P1b having a fantastic time at their Christmas party . We had non-stop fun all afternoon on Tuesday. We played pin the nose on Rudolph, knock down the snowmen, snowball toss, balloon tennis and bean-bag buckets. We enjoyed our party snack and then got ready for more fun with our very own ‘Do you want to build a Snowman?’. Even the teachers got to have lots of fun testing the activities out before hand!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland!

P1a and p1b were set a challenge today. Our teachers asked us to create our own winter village. We talked about what things we might want to include and then got to work. We made a train track, houses, trees and even Santa’s sleigh. Our teachers were so proud of how well we worked together. We shared all the resources so nicely and moved around the area really carefully so as not to knock over anyone’s creations. Mr Hunter came to see our wonderful winter wonderland when we had finished and he was so impressed too!

Outdoor Learning

When we went to the Nature Strip this afternoon we were thinking about Christmas.

Some of us pretended to sit in Santa’s sleigh.
Some of us made Christmas trees.
Some of us drew and decorated Christmas baubles hanging from branches.
Some of us became human Christmas trees!
We were delighted to find some holly with its lovely red berries (we had a picture of holly in our advent calendar yesterday).

P1C Christmas Party

We all enjoyed our party this afternoon. We played games in the classroom then we went outside for some outdoor play. When we came in from the playground we were delighted to find that Mrs Tariq had set out all of our party food nicely for us. We enjoyed listening to Christmas songs while we ate.

A Parliament of Owls

We were learning about owls last week so P1C decided to make some clay owls. We had to let the clay dry over the weekend, then we painted them to finish them off. We hope you like them.
