Good afternoon everyone.
What a busy and hard-working week we have had in P1/2.
A highlight this week was when we received a very exciting letter from Katie Morag, asking for our help. She is very interested in learning all about the past and would like us to help her learn more about what life was like when our grandparents and great grandparents were young. Each week Katie Morag is going to send us a letter, along with one of her stories and a special task for us to complete. This week she asked us to help her organise her ‘family tree’ as she had accidently got it all jumbled up. We learned that a ‘family tree’ can tell us important information about the relationship between different people in our families and can show us different family members throughout the past. We then discussed what our own family trees might look like and are very keen to create our own, which Miss Yorkston thinks is a fabulous idea! If you would like to complete your family tree, then please feel free to do so and upload a photograph onto Seesaw for your child to share with the class.
Also, this week we were learning about Bonfire Night. We created some beautiful Bonfire and firework wax resist artwork, using oil pastels and black paint. In Health and Wellbeing, we discussed how we keep ourselves safe on Bonfire night and created posters, in writing to share this information with others. Also, in Writing the P2’s created fabulous Bonfire night poems using adjectives to describe what they could see, hear, smell, taste and feel on Bonfire night.
In Numeracy, we continued our learning about numbers to 10. We have been learning to count, recognise, write and make the numbers 2, 3 and 4 this week. Primary 2’s this week have been learning to identify numbers to 100 on a number square and have been using Numicon to help them identify how many tens and ones make up a particular number e.g. the number 56 has 5 tens and 6 ones.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend
Miss Yorkston and P1/2
