P1M Reflective Friday 25.11.22

Hello everyone, this is what we have been learning this week:


This week we have been learning to identify, copy and continue a pattern. Activities have been set up in the class to help us practise this and in our teaching groups we have been using shapes and colour to continue a pattern. We used the Smartboard to do a pattern warm up and played a shape pattern game on the Smartboard too.


This week we introduced the sounds l and c. 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 are was and want.

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.


One of the children suggested that the toys in our classroom might come to life when we go home. We talked about what they might get up to and thought of stories about their adventures. We tried to write some words ourselves as well as drawing detailed pictures.


Here are some photographs from last week showing us enjoying the books in our class library.


We are learning to throw and catch a ball. We practised three activities, working together in groups: throwing bean bags into hoops, throwing a sponge ball into the air, letting it bounce and catching it, throwing beanbags underarm to a partner.



The class worked together to decorate a giant Christmas tree for the hall.

Here are some examples of learning through play from the last two weeks.

Primary One will have their next Loose Parts session on Friday 2nd December.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.
