Getting Ready For Christmas

P1/2 have been working hard making crafts for the Christmas fair on Friday. We have also been making Scottish Santa’s for our hall window display. Don’t they look great? Well done P1/2.

Using a Dictionary

In reading this week, we were trying to think of words that had the sounds, sh, th, ch, ng and nk in them. We thought of a few, then began to get a little stuck for ideas so we decided to use the junior dictionaries to help us.


In P1/2 we try to do some French each day in the class. We talk about the days of the weather and we also like to count in French. Ask us at home.

Number Patterns

Today we looked at number patterns. We easily cracked some simple patterns such as,

1  2  1  2  1  2

1  2  3  4  5

6  5  4  3  2

0  2  4  6  8

1  3  5  7  9

But can you believe we even worked out how to find the next number in this pattern….,

1  2  4  8  16  32 …… and Ellie told us the next number would be 64 ….. Can you work out what would come after 64?

Run through…

Today we had a full run through of our Nativity performance on the stage!!! We are getting really good at remembering our lines and are starting to add in some expression. Any practise you can put in at home will be greatly appreciated. Thanks 🙂

Numeracy – Skip counting

We have been doing lots of different activities to help us skip count in 2’s,5’s and 10’s. We have also been doing lots of counting forwards and backwards and making number lines. Also arranging numbers smallest to largest and using education city to do different counting games.

Super Sentences

P2s have been looking at adding more detail to their sentences. We used picture cards to make a plan using, who, what, where and when. They then decided on one of the plans to write their very own super sentence.


Today in class we have been working on building interesting sentences. We used these picture cards to build a sentence and took turns to read them out. This is to help us when we build our own super sentences.


P1/2 have been learning to count in 2’s, 5’s and 10s. We have been using lacing plates to help with our skip counting
