Yesterday and today we were visiting our new classes for next year. The P2’s went up to join Mrs Hamilton in P3 and have been having a ‘SUPER’ themed time! The P1’s moved into P2 and were fantastic role models for out new P1 pupils who came to visit from the nursery. Everyone enjoyed their visit and we can’t wait to start in our new classes in August!
Today we have been counting in 2’s. We were playing counting games on the computer and doing sums with our friends. We are going to be doing lots of practise of counting in 2’s over the next few weeks.
Today we had a brilliant visit to Tranent Parish Church.
Sorry, no spelling homework this week! The photocopier is eagerly awaiting a new part. We will have it out to you next week.
We have been practising some dinosaur raps in class, so why not try rapping some of your past spelling words this week since you’ll have some extra time!
Today in P1/2 we were writing some dinosaur themed sentences. We were making sure to use a capital letter at the start, finger space and use a full stop at the end. We also thought really hard about our spelling.
Today was global ‘Empty Classroom Day’. Not that we need an excuse here in P1/2 but we got ourselves outside to make some art this afternoon. We used bits and pieces that we found in the garden to create some pictures. Afterwards, we went to explore (and have some fun) in the nursery garden. We learned LOADS outside today!
We were very excited in class today when Police Scotland replied to our tweet! Why not follow us on twitter for quick updates about what we are doing, photo’s and links to new blog posts. Find us @epsinfants
Well done to Grace (1st place) and Clay (2nd place) who were the P1/2 winners of the JSRO design a cycling helmet competition.
Also a big well done to Ben and Euan for organising such a great competition.
Today we were working had on our ‘igh’ sounding words outside when we heard a strange noise. We stopped and listened and thought it might be a plane. We went to have a look. Off past the fields we could see a helicopter.
We thought about the sounds in the word helicopter. We worked together to tally it. We did such a fab job because it is a really long word!
Then the helicopter flew right over our heads. We waved goodbye and got back to out reading.
Mrs Payne was very kind and allowed us to take part in our singing games outside. We had lots of fun listening to metal instruments today.
