The Primary 1 pupils are settling really well in to their classroom. We have been working lots over the past couple of week on rules, routines, expectations and getting to know each other. This week we started learning on our number and phonics work. Many pupils are able to count forward to 20 and beyond. We are learning to form the numbers correctly, sequence them in the correct order and count on from a given number. We have also been doing a little work on counting backwards. The phonics we have introduced and are learning are: s, a, t, i and p. If you see these letters ask your child what the Sound is and what Jolly Phonics action goes with it. Many pupils are grasping the phonics quickly. Great work….keep it up!
We have two term Topics during this term: Mini beasts and Transport. At present we are working on Mini Beasts. It appears that the children are really enjoying it as they are getting to explore in our newly refurbished school garden. On Thursday we went to the Cameron Youth Centre garden to explore and investigate with the P1/2 pupils. We used magnifying glasses and found a wide variety of mini beasts, including: ladybirds, slugs, snails, flies, wasps, spiders, wood lice, moths and earwigs.
Super lining up P1……keep up the great work!
