Thursday 13th October

Yesterday we wrote stories about The Paramedic. We were working hard to make sure our picture had lots of details. Our P2’s were working on their capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.

Today we have been doing lots of work on our phonics. We practised our letters through a variety of activities and Cole read us all a story! We did our handwriting and we made sure to TAKE OUR TIME.

We also did some work on our numbers. Some P1’s were playing an adding game on the laptops. Everyone else was working on their number formation!


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.

Busy bees…

WOW!! What a busy few days.

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.


We have started getting ready for our Harvest assembly! Can you guess what we might be making?

Number Work

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!

Harvest Time in Elphinstone

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!
