The boys and girls have been working hard this week in primary 1/2. They have been learning about weight/mass, exploring balance scales and things that are heavier and lighter. In numeracy we have been thinking about numbers and how they are made of 1, 2 or more digits. For example 12 is one ten and 2 units and 23 is made up of 2 tens and 3 units.
In literacy the children have worked hard to design and make a recipe for sandwiches. They also enjoyed working in groups to make the sandwiches. Everyone is looking forward to the visitors coming to their café. It will be a very busy week ahead. They are going to make the food and drink, menus, place mats etc and brush up on their work place skills.
Learning some basic tennis skills has also been popular with the boys and girls and they have been working hard to develop their control of the racquet and ball.
We are also looking forward to the library visit next week so thank you to the volunteers. If you could meet us at reception just after one o’clock that would be great. We will be taking the library card application forms with us. If your child has a card already then please let them bring it on the day if you would like them to take out a book.
Fingers crossed everyone for a fine day next Friday for Sports Day. Please remember to send in the return slip to confirm where and when your child is to be collected.

This week primary 1/2 have been very busy in numeracy feeding penguins while working on their subtraction strategies. In literacy we have a poetry focus. What could be better than a snowstorm while writing a poem about snow! This gave us lots of ideas for adjectives.
The children are very interested in Science just now and are enjoying looking at ice and are planning an experiment for next week. We have even had some ice brought in by some children for us to look at.
Expressive arts this week has focussed on dance when the children are busy creating a winter dance to the music of Debussy and going outside to sketch winter trees.
A little note to say that library day is on a Thursday now so please return books on this day. If your child wishes to keep a book for a longer period they should still return it each week and have it scanned out again. Thank you.
A message for all the boys and girls in primary 1/2 and their families.
