P1 Bright Sparks - Miss Croal

P1B Reflective Friday 25.11.22

Good afternoon! 


This week, we learned the l and c sounds. We found things around the classroom starting with our new sounds and found some leaves (pictures below) to make lions. We practised blending CVC (consonant vowel consonant) words. It helps if we take one big breath and say all the sounds slowly one after another without any breaks!

 For writing, our prompt was “I ran to…”.  Everyone did very well with writing those two tricky words, and we all tried to build and write ‘ran.’ 


This week, we were back to our SEAL ptogramme to practise saying the number before/after, as well as using different strategies to work out addition sums up to 10 and beyond.

Health and Wellbeing

In PE this week, we practised our literacy with listening to the middle sound of words to know how to move around the room. We also made up our own versions of tig that we played! On Friday, we went to the hall with P2, and they taught us some of the skills they have been learning in their PE lessons. There were lots of different stations for us to practise lots of different skills!

Other Areas

We have been practising our Nativity lines and have been thinking about adding in expression and drama to our performance. Please support your child to learn their line by next week if they don’t already know it. We got together in the hall with all the other P1s today to work out our staging! Today, your child has a letter in their purple folder about their costume. Around the classroom, we have had some impressive creations with the small bricks and the magnets.

General Information

We have loose parts (messy play) next Friday (2nd December).

Please support your child to learn their line for the Nativity in a big loud voice!

Have a great weekend,

Miss Croal
