This week we have been learning:
We have continued to learn and practise times tables this week with a particular focus on the 3 times tables. Please refer to additional blog for ideas of games and activities to help your child with this.
We were talking about making equal groups in our SEAL groups and also recognising numerals in the 1-100 range. Another group was counting and sequencing in the 1-100 range and adding two numbers together using the counting on method.
In order to give the us a purpose and audience for our writing we began to write a story suitable for a nursery/P1 child. We looked at some examples of story books with our learning partners and made a list together of what makes a good story. We made a plan of our own ideas thinking about a beginning, middle and end for our stories. We then began a first draft. We will transfer our stories to a booklet and illustrate them. We are hoping to read them to the nursery/P1 children after the February break.
In reading we have been looking at poetry and we worked together to think of words which rhyme with our names. We used these rhymes to create poems of our own.
Spelling focus was on magic e words with an I in the middle. We talked about the spelling activity which best helped them to learn their words. We finish the week with dictation.
The children were split into learning teams across the school and on Monday afternoon they participated in the activity they had chosen. Please ask your child about their chosen activity.
We were looking at saving documents to a folder.
NYCoS (external visitor) We were developing our understanding of rhythm and pulse.
This week we were practising some Scottish country dancing.
We recapped on the weather phrases we had been learning before Christmas and worked in a group to make up a mime which would show our given phrase.
We spoke about the health and wellbeing indicators and thought about the things that are done at school and home to make sure we are safe, healthy, achieving, nurtured, active, responsible, respected and included.
