Learning Together at Home. P1 Divine Dragonflies 26.06.2020

Good morning my Dragonflies!

Our song!

Today is a very special day:  It is your last day in P1! I remember so well your first days back in August: you were so little and you were very excited about starting P1. You all looked lovely wearing your uniforms for the first time!

I had such a lovely time with you all! I will miss you! I hope that when you see me in school after the summer you will come and say hello and chat to me.  Miss McGhee is so lucky to teach you next year! Please, show how good you are, I have told her that you are the best class ever because you are.

I am very proud of all of you. You have learned lots of things this year. This has not been an easy end of term and you all have been resilient in this situation. When you grow up you will remember this time as a special one: when you were very lucky to be at home learning and spending time with your family,  but your teacher, Mrs de Bonrostro, missed being with you.

Please check your e-learning journals as I have left a wee message for you.

Remember to watch Mrs Imrie’s assembly you might see some familiar faces!

I hope you all have a wonderful summer! We might see each other in Edinburgh! Have lots of fun.

Remember:

Take care and stay safe.

Lots of love,

Mrs de Bonrostro

Buenos dias my Dragonflies!

Bon jour my Dragonflies!

How are you today? I can’t believe is Thursday!

I had a lovely visit yesterday with an amazing surprise:

Dear parents, I can’t thank you enough for your thoughtful and very generous gifts. As my visitors can tell you I felt very emotional when I opened the book and saw all my Dragonflies! This is a very kind gift with a lot of work and thought on it. Last night I had a lovely and emotional time reading all the messages and looking at all the photos…I can’t believe this year has finished like this, it feels unreal. You know ( parents and children) that you are a very special class and that you will have a special place in my heart: my lockdown class, my dragonflies. THANK YOU so much!

And now:

This is the last time that we will listen together to this song in P1!

 

I hope you have a Thrilling Thursday.

Love,

Mrs de Bonrostro

P.S Instead of a cake we had special ice creams for my girls birthday. It has too hot!

Good morning my Dragonflies!

Today looks like the weather is going to be lovely so please make the most of it!

How are you ? I am very excited because it is my daughter’s birthday. We have a few surprises for her… I wonder what kind of cake we will have.

How are you getting on with your activity grid? Which activities are you enjoying?

Did you have a nice day yesterday? I am looking forward to hearing all about it. Miss McGhee is very excited about meeting you all.

Look what Hannah found on her walk. It is beautiful!

Good morning my Dragonflies!

I can’t believe this is your last week in P1! You have grown so much since you started in August, you have learned so much too! You really are a special class.

This week is going to look a little bit different as on Tuesday we will have a Transition Day when you will ‘meet’ your new teacher and on Friday we will have a whole school assembly.

This week I am providing you a grid of activities to do throughout the week, no other learning will be provided however I will be posting everyday to check how you are all doing. I will be busy planning with the teachers for next term and getting the classroom ready for after the summer.

This is the learning for the week:

GRID TWO END of TERM

This is the minibeasts booklet for you to explore over the Summer, it is very detailed and maybe for older children but it will give you ideas of how to further explore minibeasts.

23959-Minibeasts Activity Book

I have uploaded a little video on your e-learning journal.

I hope you have a lovely day!

Love,

Tricky words: Please revise Block 1, 2 and 3 as well as the First 100 Fry words. Take your time, every child is at a different stage. Follow your child’s lead. Don’t rush, it is better to have few secured than all not consolidated.

  • Please continue to use the tricky word power points.
  • Challenge: If your child can read all of the words quickly and confidently test how well they can independently spell the tricky word when you read them out loud (just like dictation). Continue to practice your 100 fry words.

Reading

Task:

Book review

What did you like about the book? What did you not like about the book? What puzzled you about the story?

 e-books

Lizards: Kippers Diary

Dolphins: The Toys Party

Lions The Ice Rink

Cheetahs:  The Stinky Plant

Challenge: The Magic Paintbrush

Writing

Task 

Today we are going to be looking ahead to school next year and writing about the following question:

What would you like your next teacher to know about you?

I would firstly, like you to draw a picture of yourself with as much detail as possible. It could be a picture of you doing something you really enjoy at home (swimming, gymnastics, football), something you like doing at school (literacy, numeracy, art) or just a picture of you with lots of detail (eyelashes, eyebrows).

Then I would like you to tell your next teacher something you would like them to know about you.

For example:

My name is _______ and my favourite food is pasta.  I have a little brother. At school I really enjoying singing  my favourite song called Over in the Meadow with my friends in my class.  Next year I would like to work more on adding numbers to 20. I enjoy playing in the sand pit. At home I enjoy playing football with my brother but I also really like painting pictures too.

I would like you all to write 4 things you would like your teacher next year to know about you. 1 of those things must be something that you would like to learn or get better at next year.

This will be something I will be able to pass over to your next teacher so please try your hardest.

Adult, please don’t focus on correcting the spelling to start with if it is phonetically correct.

Non-negotiables:

  • Capital letter at the beginning of a sentence. (please only use capital letters in the correct place and encourage your child to use lowercase letters while writing).
  • Full stop at the end of a sentence.
  • Finger spaces between words.

I would love to see your amazing writing once it is finished.
