Brenda is a Sheep by Morag Hood

Watch the book being read aloud

We used the instructions in the back of the book to draw Brenda and her sheep friends!

This is a Dogย by Ross Collins

The dog in This is a Dog will not let others have their turn! Primary 1 are very good at taking turns. We know this is important because it is fair and means that everyone is happy.

My First Book of Birds illustrated by Zoรซ Ingram

We spread peanut butter or lard on to our kitchen roll tube and rolled it in seeds. We then threaded string through it so we could hang it on the trees.

We then took 4 of our bird feeders into the park and had to sit as quiet as a ninja to listen and look for birds.

We had a go at inventing a new bird! We picked our own colours for the feathers and eggs. Some of us even drew what the bird likes to eat.

We used the voting slip at the back of the activity booklet to vote for our favourite book, then posted them when we went to the Book Box!

Have fun with your magnetic white board and numbers!

  • Make a number line and take one away – guess which one is missing?
  • Mix up the numbers and put them in order
  • Put a whole number at the top and separate the number into parts
  • Can you remember your Dice Patterns?
  • Try making a sum with the + or – signs
  • Can you draw some shapes you know?
  • How about drawing some times on a clock
  • Practise writing your name ๐Ÿ™‚
