This afternoon we spoke about staying safe when it's dark outside. We read a Ziggy and Maggie story about Halloween and crossing the road safely in the dark.
Today we learned the letter "u". The picture is an umbrella so we used the umbrellas in the classroom and put them up and down!
We got together with the other primary classes to look at all the different costumes. We got together in groups with others in the same genre or the same book. We also had a group of random characters who didn't have a pal!
Disney princess's by the dozen!
Willy Wonka and his Oompa Loompa!
Captain Hook and some pirates!
Tintin and Captain Haddock
Lucy and the white witch!
Niamh, Esha and Emily each read a bit from the book about their character.
Fantastic costumes from all of p1 today. We looked up photos on the computer of each of the characters we are:
This afternoon we had our first lesson using an app called Flow Paper to create patterns. We used different colours and backgrounds and ran our fingers round the iPad making different shapes. We learned that holding your finger in one place made bolder colours.
Some super pictures were made today!
A wee reminder that it's dress up day in school tomorrow.
We will still be going to Funworld in the morning so if girls are wearing dresses you may want to put on a pair of leggings as well. Please remember you need to wear socks as well.
Just realised this didn't post from Tuesday!
We had fun in maths morning doing a human number line. We are so pleased Catherine has joined our class so we now have 10 people. We had a number each and had to get into order, then hide our numbers and find a different one.
Sofia got the award this week for a big improvement in her concentration during work time.
Jude got the award this week for his improvement in pencil control on written work.
Well done to both!
This afternoon in circle we were finishing sentence. Today our sentences were
I like holidays because....
My favourite treat is....
I laugh when....
This helps us to think about ourselves and our likes/dislikes and encourages us to talk in front of others.
We also played some circle time games and today we tried musical chairs.
A fun afternoon!
