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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
When we were in Nursery
We are learning about 2D and 3D shapes. We have been sorting and matching shapes and are learning to recognise and name shapes during play.
During friendship week the children thought about what makes a good friend. They made friendship bracelets, baked heart shaped cookies and made cards and pictures for their friends.
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.
FEEDING THE BIRDS IN WINTER
The chidren were keen to help feed the birds during winter. They made bird food and hung it on the trees in the Nursery garden.
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.
