We have been learning¬† about counting backwards. Counting backwards is very important when a rocket is getting ready to blast off. We made some fabby rockets with countdown tails! Don’t they look great!

Over the last few weeks some of our P1′s have been learning about holding a sentence. It is when the teacher reads us a sentences and we hold it in our head and then write it down in our jotter! We are getting really quite great at it. We even remembered our finger spaces :)

We have been learning how to keep our teeth clean and healthy. We decided to do an experiment to see what would happen fi we had ate or drank sugary things and did not brush our teeth properly. We used eggs to represent our teeth. We placed one egg in lemonade and one in water. We then predicted what we thought was going to happen. Here is what we did in class and what happened after leaving the eggs for over a week!!!

The egg in lemonade is now cracked and has started to go all rotten. Yuck!!!!!

Its important to brush our teeth!!!!!!

We had a fantastic time this afternoon looking at old objects from the past. We had a homework task to speak to our grandparents/great grandparents or people we know, about what it was like for them growing up. It was so much fun talking to our loved ones and finding out things we did not know about them when they were little. Here are some of the things that people brought in.

We had an Atlas the was 114 years old, coins that were over 200 years old, an old fashioned doll, lots of pictures and other small objects such as watches and toys.

Thanks so much to all the parents, you are all amazing, the amount of information and time taken spent with your child was wonderful. the children really enjoyed learning and talking about all the things they had found out. Thanks again!!! Mrs Collier 032 027029030023019024031

Today we worked with our cooperative learning partner to share our learning stories. We are concentrating on 3 social skills in P1/2. These are:

- taking turns

- using quiet voices

- being a good listener

We love talking to each other about our work and it’s great to have a partner who is a good listener.
