Pattern

We continued to work on our patterns today. This week we looked at patterns with multiple repeating colours or shapes.

Reading

We have been having fun reading and playing sounding out games with our partners.

Imaginative Writing

P1/2 have been doing some Imaginative writing about a Secret Cupboard. Jock the Croc had a message in his bag saying to go to the library. So we decided to go on an adventure around the school. We found a secret cupboard in the library and asked different members of staff what they thought was behind the door…

James thought there was a secret tunnel behind the door.
Mrs Hamilton said she thought it was a portal that takes you back in time.
Mrs Small believed the cupboard takes you to a secret garden.

The children then made a plan and came up with their own ideas for their story.

Science- Water Experiments

P1/2 have been doing different types of water experiments.
– Floating and sinking
– Making a boats – Will it sail or fail?
– Lime life jacket
– Freezing and melting
– Water colours – colourful cubes and what hue are you?

The children have been enjoying predicting and writing up science reports about their findings.


Pattern

In P1/2 today we started learning about pattern. Today we were thinking:

WHAT IS A PATTERN?

 

Subtraction

Today we were all working on taking away. We played games and completed activity sheets using our taking away skills. Some of us used our fingers to help us and some people were practising counting backwards to solve the take away calculations.

CUBES

Today we have been learning all about cubes. We learned that they can be big or small, red or blue but they ALWAYS are made up of 6 square faces and have 8 corners. We had lots of fun investigating whether they stack and how we can use cubes to build.

 

Halloween Party

WOW!! We have been invited to the Nursery’s Halloween party on Friday morning. We are so excited to go and join in with lots of fun Halloween activities.

We spent our literacy time today writing our RSVP to let them know we will be coming.

If we have a costume ready, we can dress up coming to school on Friday so we are ready for the party.

I think I want to be a bee!

WOW! We had some fantastic reading and writing today from the Monkey reading group. We were using our ‘ee’ sound in our writing. Well done everyone!
