P1b Learning Log Wb: 4th December 2017

What is going well?

Sophie and Mia enjoy sitting on the carpet with the class to learn new sounds and number work.

Millie enjoys learning about new topics and likes learning all sorts of new things.

Millie also enjoys making new friends.

Cody likes playing games during P.E.

Stephen enjoys learning about numbers and learning new letters (sounds). He also makes some fantastic creations with the building blocks.

Jamie likes to play the ‘Bubbles – Count to 100’ game on the Smart Board.

Daniel still enjoys running the daily mile in the playground.

What could be better?

Stephen and Jamie say that we have to remember to keep being nice to each other.

Sophie says that saying, ‘Stop it!’ is a sensible way to respond if someone upsets you.  If you upset someone you should say, ‘Sorry!’ and maybe give that person a hug.

Felix doesn’t like it when people play football in the playground.  It takes up space and the ball sometimes hits someone.

Darcy, Emma and Lachlan would like to have a house play area in both of the P1 classrooms.

In Numeracy some of us have been discussing the different strategies we could use for addition and subtraction. We made posters to explain a strategy.

In Maths we worked in groups to make a board game on our Maths Topic, which is Money. Through creating and playing our games, we developed the skills of co-operation and teamwork.

In Health and Wellbeing we have had a good discussion about what it is like to be stressed and how to feel better.

We wrote stories this week focusing on the beginning, middle and end. We have also been spending time this term on handwriting, practising our cursive joins.

In the Rugby festival we would have liked there to have been more than one other school involved so we could have played against teams from lots of different schools.

We think need to get better at listening and not talking when someone else is talking. We need to listen without distracting others.

P6a Learning Log – 8th December 2017

This week in P6a we have been very busy. Here is a review of our week.

Maths – in our new shape work we were doing parallel and perpendicular line and it was challenging at first. By the end people knew what they were doing.
Big Writing – we were doing Christmas themed writing using paragraphs and we had a plan to follow. We made pictures to go with the stories because we are going to tell our stories to the Primary 1s.
Scottish Country Dancing – we did well as we have not had time for other practices so far. We were all sensible about holding hands and we did really well. We did the Gay Gordons, the Canadian Barn Dance and the Virginia Reel.
Class Novel – we have been making a Fairy Book of commandments using secret codes based on our novel ‘Artemis Fowl’. The codes have been fun.
IDL – we made a timeline of events in Space Exploration. We found information on a website and had to put it in order and say what had happened.

P2 (01.12.17)

We were joined by a new addition to our class today- Kingy the Elf. He made his appearance by zip line and dropped candy canes everywhere!

The children have decided that Kingy is a good elf but think he might provide some tricky challenges for them to complete in the run up to Christmas.

Today Kshitiz and Adrian opened the first day of our advent calendar. Every child will get the chance to open a door.

During the Christmas fair we got into the Christmas spirit by listening to Christmas music whilst enjoying a Christmas craft session. The children of P2 made some beautiful decorations for the class!
