Learning to Add


Posted by Jen Jamieson | Posted in Homework, Numeracy | Posted on 09-01-2015

This week, we got back to work quickly and have been learning all about addition.
We have been using counters, butterfly mats and a brilliant game called “Funky Mummy” to help us.
We used the counters and butterfly mats to lay out our calculations and recorded them horizontally on our whiteboards – and yes, your children are all using these very grown-up mathematical words!

For homework, you might want to try playing the Funky Mummy game. You will need to have some counters and perhaps make a butterfly mat(the children should be able to describe this, if not, just let me know.)
If you record any of the calculations, please send them into school to be put into Achievement Books.
Good Luck!

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to our third term in Primary 1. Hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year.
This term, we have lots of learning to do – addition, subtraction and telling the time! We might even have a visitor from outer space! Later in the term, there will be an opportunity for you to come and join us for an afternoon to find out what we have been learning. (More details to follow.)

I sent gym kit and gym shoes home at the end of term to be washed and checked. If you have not already done so, please can you send them back into school as soon as possible?

Unfortunately, our class camera is broken. A new one has been ordered but I wont be able to post any photographs until it arrives…….unless I can borrow one from another kind teacher!
