P2B’s Monday

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!


Sharing Sweets in Maths!

Who knew we could learn so much in Maths by using sweets? We have been learning about sharing an amount equally amongst others in Maths and know that sometimes we will have some leftover which is called a remainder. Miss Baldacci had sweets that she needed help sharing out equally.

A busy couple of days in P1G

Primary 1G have had a busy start to the week!

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.


Money Strategies in P2B

Today we were challenging ourselves to come up with different ways of making a price as we know that we don’t always have the exact coins or change available. We really thought outside the box and used our number bonds and counting skills to come up with lots of different combinations. Miss Baldacci is going to challenge us even more tomorrow.

Money, Money, Money!

We have been learning lots about money. We have learned how to sort money from smallest to largest, what each coin represents, we have used coins to pay for things and are beginning to work further on understanding that we can use different combinations of coins to pay for things. As you can see, we learn in lots of different ways during Maths in P2B including playing team games, ICT, a teacher led station and our Role Play corner. We have different activities to try each day which we really enjoy 😄
