Primary 1 have had another busy week! This week we have begun our formal number and phonics learning. In phonics, the children have learnt the sounds ‘a’ and ‘t’. The children were learning to write the letters correctly and to think of words with each sound at the beginning. Please continue to practise these things at home to support your child’s learning.
In maths, we have been learning the numbers 0,1,2 and 3. Our focus has been on correct number formation, but we have also worked on counting out amounts and ordering numbers to 10.
During our story time we have introduced the children to the key characters in our reading scheme. This week we met Kipper, Floppy, Biff, Chip, Mum and Dad. We will work more on these characters as we begin home reading books in a few weeks time.
This week the children decided to take forward a play focus on ‘our school’. The children chose what they would like in each play area in our classroom and are enjoying ‘being teachers’, building their dream school and designing new uniforms.
As always, we value home-school links and are happy to discuss anything after school.
