Number Chains


Posted by Jen Jamieson | Posted in Homework, Numeracy | Posted on 03-10-2013

Over the last few weeks, we have been learning to read and write numbers.

Mrs Jamieson gave us a challenge today……..Can Primary 1 make a number chain that will stretch all the way to the gym hall?

We practised writing our numbers on strips of paper, then Mandy and Lesley helped us to staple them together.


We stretched the number chain out to see how far it would reach. We completed the challenge! It did go all the way from our classroom door to the gym hall!

Mrs Jamieson hung it up on the ceiling after school – look out for it next time you are in the classroom. 🙂

This is a great activity to try at home to help with number formation. If you would like to have a go, bring your number chain in to let us see or send in a photo of it hanging in your house.

National Poetry Day

Today is National Poetry Day. Everyone in school was listening to, reading or writing poems. In Primary 1, we listened to some rhymes and songs. We talked about the words that sounded nearly the same – the rhyming words.


At the end of the day, we watched a favourite story on the big board and spotted the rhyming words. Perhaps you can watch and listen at home too?
Can you hear the words
scarf and giraffe?
boat and goat?
house and mouse?
socks and fox?
dog and bog?
