Term 1A Overview 

Team Building 

Today, our challenge was to work in a team to build a castle using building toys. 
First, we discussed and drew out our castle ideas. 
After, we worked together to build our castle - only one per team! 
Then, we gathered around to practise talking and listening skills to hear about and celebrate each others' work! 
Well done, everyone!! 
Unfortunately, one of our finished castle photos would not upload - it was made from Sticklebricks and was very clever with flags, windows and steps! 

Our Big Walk! 

Learning Through Play 

Lots of learning has been going on in P1 this week! 
We have been building with 3D shapes, playing Numbots on the iPads, building with junk art, making and writing our own books, working as a team, listening to stories, adding, and, of course, watching our new caterpillar friends! 

...and on his farm he had a sheep! 

P1 had a special surprise this morning for being total superstars - an outdoor visit from a Mummy sheep and her one week old lamb, Bert. Mummy sheep was very protective over her baby and was making some very loud noises! (Not all children wanted to pet Bert!) 

Happy to be Back! 

Term 3 week 1 play! 
 
Look at all of our smiley faces!  

Phonics 

We have been working so hard on learning our intitial sounds this half term.  
 
We learn our sounds through listening, looking at the letters, playing games like I Spy, phonics songs, sorting sounds into sets and so on!  
 
Here is a photo of a game of I Spy! 

Visit to the Post Office 

We had a lovely morning walking to Laurelvale Post Office - even if we did get a bit wet on the way back! Our Santa letters are posted and we even got some yummy sweeties sent out from our friends in the shop! 

Play Based Learning 

We have lots of fun in Play Based Learning in P1. Here is a wee selection of some of our latest play activities. 

Long and Short 

We were learning about length: things that are long and short. We decided to go on a scavenger hunt around our classroom to find things that were longer and shorter than our pencils! 

Cinderella's Ball 

 
I am so pleased that we got to have our Cinderella Ball this week! 
 
We all had lots of fun and I am so impressed with everyone's amazing costumes - this really made it extra special. 

Outdoor Play 

Have a look at some of our photos during outdoor play! 

Great Jumper Champions! 

Well done to our winner! Keep practising everyone!
