P2b Numeracy

P2b are still working hard, even in their Christmas jumpers! Today we were consolidating our understanding of place value by playing mini board games and making numbers with materials. We are showing that we can understand how numbers are built using hundreds, tens and ones and that we can identify the value of each digit.

Greenspace p2b

P2B have been working to create a greenspace for the members of their Nature Street Community. We talked about how we needed to meet the needs of different groups of people. We worked in small groups to draw a design for our space and then made a 3D model. We used problem solving skills, team work and lots of creativity. We are really pleased with our designs.

I can design and construct models and explain my solutions.TCH 1-09a

P2b ‘Nature Street’

P2b have been very busy learning about all the people and places that make up our local community. They have made their own fictional street and have made houses and families for it. They have been learning about the needs of people in the community and developing their mapping skills. Tomorrow will be an exciting day as it marks the opening of ‘The Nature Street Cafe’. The children have worked so hard to make food and menus and have been learning about the roles involved in running a small business.

P1 fun afternoon!

P1A loved our afternoon at the meadows today. We played games, had fun at the playpark, had a mini football match and ate yummy ice lollies to cool us down! We loved the opportunity to play with all our friends and be out in the sunshine!

Euro 2020 (in 2021!)

We have been getting into the Euro spirit in primary 1A. We learned where Scotland is on the map of Europe and also marked all the different European countries that are represented in our class (although not all are competing). We have also enjoyed trying to identify the flags that Ms Anstruther put up in the corridors for us. Each class in school has a country to make a ‘Top Trumps’ style card for. We picked Scotland out of the hat, which was easy as we already know lots about Scotland! This afternoon we all sat down to watch the start of the Scotland v. Czech Republic game.

Our community

P1a and p1b have had a great time this week learning about our local community. We took a walk to look at some of the services and shops in our local area. We also made giant models of a fire station, police station and hospital, complete with emergency vehicles. We have had lots of fun playing with them.

Police visit

We had a very exciting day in primary 1a today as PC Fowler came to chat to us about the role of a Police Officer. She told us about all the different parts of her uniform and we asked lots of great questions.

Her 2 colleagues also brought along a police van for us to see. We liked it when they put on the siren and lights. We drew pictures of what we thought a police officer looks like yesterday and then drew one today to show what PC Fowler actually looked like.

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!
