Lots more hard work on addition this week.
We have been practising recording our calculations vertically in our squared jotters. We have also been using different strategies to help us solve addition problems. We made a big wall display in the classroom to show all the different things we can do to help us add.

We have used numberlines, finger calculators, number rainbows and addition facts to help us.

Every week, Primary 1 use the school lap-tops. For a lot of children, it’s the most exciting time of the week!
We have been practising hard and can now open the computers and log in with our user name and password. We have been looking at the different applications on the computer and have made these amazing drawings using ActiveInspire (the same application that Mrs Jamieson uses on the big board.)
Our pictures are displayed in the cloakroom.
