What another lovely week we’ve had in Primary 1. We’ve been continuing to focus on our emotions this week and we’ve been looking at our SHANARRI wellbeing indicators (safe, healthy, active, achieving, nurtured, respected, responsible and included). The children have enjoyed explaining their feelings during circle time activities and through drama experiences this week. They were also asked to create a picture plan of a time they felt sad and were encouraged to use some of the sounds they know in their writing. We started our North Lanarkshire Jolly Phonics programme this week and have been looking at the sounds ‘a’ and ‘t’. The children played games and were encouraged to read, write and think of words that begin with each sound. The children were introduced to the Oxford Reading Tree characters Kipper and Mum and will continue to explore this next week. In maths we have continued to work on counting from 0-20. We have been playing lots of counting games on the smart board in school and the children also learned how to form the numbers 2,3,4 and 5 correctly. This was explored by rainbow writing, painting, writing numbers on the whiteboard and in our new jotters. The children have been trying so hard with this. Well done everyone!
A reminder that we do outdoor PE on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Please send your child to school dressed for taking part in physical activity in the playground these days. It is also helpful to send a named water bottle in case your child get thirsty.
Thank you for all your support, please contact the office if we can be of any assistance.
