Primary 1 Blog

SESSION 2016-2017

Materials

In our topic, Primary 1 have been learning about different Materials. We have been learning to sort Materials into categories and have been learning different words to describe what the materials look like and feel like. We used different materials to create models of ourselves.

Gymnastics

Primary 1 have been working really hard in PE practising their gymnastics skills. We have been learning to balance in different ways using different parts of our bodies. We have been learning different ways of jumping and have enjoyed working on the climbing frame. We have been practising our forward rolls.

Physical Education

Primary 1 enjoy going to PE on Mondays and Wednesdays. We have been practising our tennis skills and have been practising working in a team by playing different games. We have been learning to move around the gym hall in different ways using different parts of our bodies. We are looking forward to practising our Gymnastics skills in the coming weeks.

Shapes

Primary 1 have made a great start to the new year and have been working really hard. In Maths, we have been learning about 2d shapes. We have been learning to identify and describe a triangle, square, rectangle and circle. We have been looking for real life examples of these shapes in our classrooms, around our school and in the playground.

We used different 2d shapes to create shape pictures. We used the shapes to make rockets, robots and houses. We are very proud of our creations and enjoy showing them to people who visit our classrooms.

Art

Primary 1 have been learning about the artist, Wassily Kandinsky. We have been learning how he used different shapes and colours in his art work. We looked closely at one of his paintings where he painted different coloured circles inside squares. We used this as inspiration to create our own pictures.

Next time you are in school, please look at these outside our Primary 1 clasrooms!

FINANCIAL EDUCATION

The children learned about money during Financial Education week. We talked about needs and wants and the children made banks to save their money in. They had many opportunities to use money during play in our supermarket, when paying for their snack and when shopping at Waitrose. They made price tags and shopping lists and began to recognise and name coins when taking part in a wide range of money related activities.

WINTER

We have had fun outdoors exploring winter weather and looking at seasonal changes in nature. We enjoyed a winter walk, recorded the temperature each day,  made footprints in the snow, collected ice and watched it melt and created winter pictures.
