We took our paired reading outside today to enjoy in the sun. We had great fun and asked each other questions about our book. In Maths we have been learning about fractions and have had lots of fun while doing it.
We had such a busy day today. We celebrated William’s fantastic achievement where he received a medal for a running race. He said he loved doing it. We continued to learn about division by sharing out dolly mixtures. Miss Baldacci let us eat them afterwards. After break we learned our new sounds and went outside to practise our words using the chalk. We then spent some time in a shaded area outside where we came up with some fantastic sentences which included our spelling words. Miss Baldacci banned the openers ‘I’ and ‘the’ so we used some other super openers. Logan also treated us to her solo talk today on Germany and let us try some tasty bread, thanks Logan!
We have been learning about food groups in P2B. We learned the benefits of some of these groups such as carbohydrates giving you energy however, we also learned that we shouldn’t eat too much from the fats and sugars group. We put what we had been learning to the test and worked in our groups to place different items of food in the correct food group. We each were given a cooperative group role which meant we all had a special job to do. This ensured that everyone within the group had something to focus on. Miss Baldacci couldn’t believe how well we worked together and was so proud of our efforts. Good job P2B!
Today during Circle Time we were focusing on being kind to one another. We took it in turns to give a compliment to our shoulder partner. What lovely compliments too and given with a smile! We discussed how it made us feel when we were kind to each other and we all agreed it made us feel happy inside.
On Monday we enjoyed ‘painting’ our phonics outside on the playground with soapy water.
Today we have been learning how to sort items into different criteria – we each made a critter and sorted them into categories. In our maths work we have been busy exploring 3D shapes. This afternoon we had a visit from John who helped us to plant some flowers in the planters outside our classroom. We also created our ouwn snail collages in the style of Matisse.
As part of digital learning week, Primary 1G have been looking at how technology is used to spread news all over the world. We watched some news stories that showed Prince William and Princess Kate’s wedding in 2011 and we used them to predict what the news might report about the next Royal wedding that is happening at the weekend.
We also made crowns and had a tea party to celebrate Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding. We wore our crowns for our class selfie.
