Hello everyone, this is what we have been learning this week:
In our groups we have been learning to: say forwards and backwards number sequences, recognise numerals, identify numbers as dot patterns, count items in a collection, use our fingers to show a number and to count a number of movements or sounds.
We practised forming the numbers 1 and 2.
This week we introduced the sounds d and o. We thought of words beginning with those sounds and learned songs and actions to help us remember them. In small groups we used magnetic letters to try to blend sounds together to read and build words.
Our two new tricky words were he and to .
FOUNDATIONS OF WRITING
We discussed wearing our wellies and splashing in puddles.
We told the teacher our stories about splashing in puddles, drew detailed pictures and wrote the word I.
THINGS TO DO AT HOME
Please use the blue letter cards you have collected so far to practise blending and building words. Please help your child to read and write the tricky words.
Here is a selection of photos showing our learning in literacy.
We are learning to throw and catch a ball. We practised rolling the ball against the wall, throwing the ball in the air from a sitting position, throwing the ball in the air standing up, throwing the ball to a partner.
We listened to some of Handel’s music for fireworks and spoke about the different kinds of fireworks and what they look like. We used our bodies to move like fireworks and were an audience for each other as we performed our fireworks dance.
OUTDOOR LEARNING/ LOOSE PARTS
We enjoyed problem solving, building, and creating with the whole Primary One stage during our loose parts play.
We had a lovely walk to the woods where we learnt about making sure we kept to the boundaries, keeping ourselves safe in the woods and playing with our friends from the other P1 classes.
It was lovely to welcome parents into the classroom today, thank you for coming.
Enjoy the weekend everyone.
