P1 – Our Senses

This week P1 thoroughly enjoyed our topic work this week, learning about our sense of hearing. We used a variety of musical instruments to make different sounds and describe what we could hear. We practiced making really quiet sounds and then really LOUD sounds too! P1 came up with lots of great descriptive words to describe what they could hear; jingling, bang, ding, loud, quiet and lots more!

Bonfire Night

This week P1 painted firework using straws, then used their fine motor skills to sprinkle glitter on top to make the fireworks sparkle! We also watched a safety video from firefighters about how to stay safe on bonfire night.

We began our new topic ‘Our Five Sense’ looking into our sense of sight. We created our own eyes by tearing crepe paper and glueing it down.

We have really enjoyed learning our new sounds this week; z, w & ng. We have been really successful when building words using our new sounds.



This week we really enjoyed spending a morning with our P6/7 buddies, who helped us to cut and stick our scary pumpkin faces and played some Halloween themed games with us! P1 showed great perseverance when threading our spiders webs and cutting out our ghosts to decorate our classroom with!


It was great seeing P1’s Halloween costumes. We did some Halloween yoga to get ourselves moving! I hope you all have a great weekend and lots of fun on Sunday!

Shared Learning


P1 will be sharing some of our learning every week, here on our school blog. This is a way for families to find out more about what we get up to at school and to be able to ask your child questions about what they have learnt.

Please feel free to comment on the posts.
