We had so much fun reading and acting out ‘We’re going on a bear hunt.’ We loved running home away from that bear. We were also practising our bunny hops and skipping. We used these movements to play some team games.
We have been working on our Christmas card designs (**I apologise for even mentioning the c word before Halloween!!**) which will be available to order after the October break. I can’t wait for you to see the hard work that has gone into these from the children. They are really beautiful!!
We have also been working on our letters with some of us leaning the sh sound today. It’s a tricky one but we were FAB at finding it in words. Some others were working so hard today on their Ditty Books. Can a log jump a dog? Of course not!! HAHA!
In Numeracy today we were playing snakes and ladders. Some groups had it really hard having to use dice that had sums on them to work out how many spaces they had to move. It you have any board games at home why not have a play over the weekend. We have been looking at domino patterns so games using a dice would help us with our work in class… and you might have some fun too!!
We have been working on our numbers. Some of us have been counting to 10 and others have been working up to 20! Here are some pictures of us hard at work. We have been completing lots of different activities.
In P1 we have been working on our numbers. We have been counting forwards and backwards. Why not try practising at home. See how many trees you can count on the way to and from school or how many teaspoons you have in the cutlery drawer….
Today we have been practising writing our number 3. We are doing a fab job im sure you’ll agree!
Last week while we were outside competing in our mini Olympics we saw Mr Peace out in his combine harvester cutting down the wheat in his field. Today we went out to pick apples in the garden. Harvest time is a busy time for the farmers in and around Elphinstone. We are busy getting prepared for our Harvest Assembly. We hope to see you all there!
Today Mrs Paterson’s RWInc group were practising writing the letters m,a,s,d and t. We were using the magnetic boards to make words using these letters and reading these to our partners. Mrs Paterson thought our work was FANTASTIC!
