Number Formation

We are getting very good at writing our numbers! This is something that you can easily practise at home too. Why not try writing numbers using finger paints or with chalk out on the pavement!

 

Star Writer

What fab writing today! I was so excited to read the ending to all your stories about Mum caught in the rain. We have been working on finger spaces, capital letters, full stops and sounding out our words.

Here are  this weeks STAR WRITERS stories….

 

 

Diwali

Today we started to learn about Diwali.

We learned that it is Hindu celebration. It is also called ‘The festival of lights.’ Although we are not sure why? We are going to do some investigating to find out all about Diwali and why it is referred to as the festival of lights.

We thought about a recent celebration that a lot of us had taken part in …. Christmas. We reminded ourselves that Christians celebrate Christmas to remember the birth of Jesus.

That got us thinking …. Why is Diwali celebrated? We want to find out the story behind it!

Travelling

In gym today we were working on our travelling skills. We were running and walking as fast as we could and as slowly as we could. We found it really hard to maintain the slow walk!!

We then used these skills to play some games. We had loads of fun and were really tired by home time. Hopefully a peaceful night for parents are carers of sleepy P1/2’s!

 

Back with a BANG!!

Day 3 for the children, day 1 for Mrs Paterson! We had a great day today getting back into our routines. The children have been telling me all about their ‘new’ teacher Mrs Collier and updating me on all the wonderful things Santa had brought. We used this information and wrote Thank You letters to Santa. The children worked so hard on these and I was VERY impressed by their amazing work!

The P2’s spend his afternoon completing star assessments so Accelerated Reading books should be home in the message bags later this week.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells

Christmas is in full swing here in P1/2! Today we were practising for our Nativity performance, singing Christmas songs, reading Christmas stories, playing with the small world Nativity scene and even doing some Christmas themed artwork! Phew!! What a busy day we have had….

Set 3 sounds

We have been working on our set 3 sounds in reading. Today we were looking at the sounds ou and ow. They are spelled differently but make the same sound. We were looking at different words that contain this sound and were trying to work out which spelling we should use. 101_9965

Non-Fiction

We have been reading the non-fiction book ‘Hens’. Today we told the other boys and girls in our class all about what a non-fiction book is and why you might want to read one.

St Andrews Day

Today is St. Andrews day. We read a story about St. Andrew and learned all about his life, his death and why he is the patron saint of Scotland. We wrote about things that we learned…..
