P1C have been very busy over the last few weeks. In Maths we started learning how to skip count by 2 and 5. We also started learning how to measure using a range of different items. This week we went outside and used our feet to measure the length of the football net and we used cubes to measure different objects from our classroom.
In Music we have been working with Dave and we have really enjoyed using different instruments to tell sound stories. This week we used different instruments to make lion and mouse sounds!
Our new IDL topic this term is The Rainforest and we have been learning all about the different layers of the rainforest and which animals live there. We love pretending to be different animals in our little class rainforest!
Happy New Year! We hope that you have had a lovely Christmas holiday and New Year. Thank you for all the generous and kind gifts and cards given.
We have begun learning addition and recognising the addition and equals sign. Please see enclosed addition activity worksheet and complete. Help your child to understand that addition means the answer will increase, as the number will get bigger. Continue to practice counting forwards and backwards, and asking your child what number is one more, one less, bigger and smaller.
IDL – Rights of the Child
We have started looking at the ‘Rights of the Child,’ this term. This looks at the UN policy on the Rights of Children around the world. We have discussed that every child around the world has the right to: clean water, shelter, food, air and play. Can you use the image in your child’s book bag and discuss what differences they see between their life and that of the children in the picture.
This morning Primary 1C walked to Musselburgh Library. It was a long walk but we managed very well. Mrs Denham was very impressed with how sensibly and quickly we walked there and back.
When we were there we read three stories; I am Bat, One Button Benny and Eric Makes a Splash. Christopher from the library read the stories to us and then we voted on our favourite book. We then had some time to pick a story to read on our own or with a grown up.
Here are some pictures of our trip from today.
