P1b Learning Log – wb: 19.03.18

This week P1b enjoyed dressing up for World Book Day.

The whole class enjoyed watching P3b’s assembly.  They have learned a lot about Edinburgh.  They told us that Arthur’s Seat is an extinct volcano and they told us about their visit to the castle.  They also sang “Three Craw’s”.  Well done P3!


Here are some of the children in p1b playing one of their favourite maths games at the SmartBoard.  It’s called Adventure Man and is a counting game.  They were very good at taking turns and were helping each other play the game.  Well done!

What’s going well this week.

World Book Day and the assembly were fun!

Lots of children went to the movie night and had fun watching Boss Baby.  It was great fun coming to school in your pyjamas and eating popcorn.  We hope the parents enjoyed their chilli night.

We have started to learn about time.  We are keen to learn to tell “o’clock times”.

We have been learning ‘ee’ and ‘ea’ sounds which are found in words like ‘feet’ and ‘heat’.  We like learning new sounds.

In maths we have been learning to ‘count on’.

Darcy is pleased that the children are playing nicely in the playground and Daniel thinks that they are behaving well in the corridors, too.

Lexi always looks forwards to getting a new reading book and she enjoys practising her reading.

Orla has a favourite maths game on the smartboard.  It is the maths basketball game and we have been using it to practice adding two numbers.

We all enjoyed watching the p4 assembly.  The play was fantastic and they also sang “Three Craws”, with some new verses that they wrote themselves.  Well done p4!

Everbody enjoyed it when we got a surprise visit from a very nice lady, also known as Miss Binnie. She read “Tabby McTat” to the whole class and helped us paint some leaves to make a beanstalk.  Thanks Miss Binnie!

The class are still enjoying school, but Darcy would like to change some things in the classroom to make it look different.
