Book Bug

Thank you again to all those who were able to make it along this afternoon.  We had some fun reading “Eric Makes a Splash” and colouring some new swim shorts to make Eric feel brave.  If you weren’t able to make it along don’t worry as every P1 has been given their Book Bug bag to take home.

As promised, I’ve attached the activities from the Scottish Book Trust website.  Here is the link to get to the author read videos.

Block 1 sounds

Hello everyone,

As of today, we have, as a class, taught all of our initial (Block 1) sounds.  These will all be added to the sound rings.  Practice will still be needed to ensure the sounds are learned and remembered fully.

In order to check that every child has each sound I am keeping the homework folders in class for day or two.

Well done to all the boys and girls on their learning of their Block 1 sounds.

Thank you,

Mr Madine

Shape Monsters

Hello everyone,

We have been exploring and investigating 2d shape in class.  We have been learning their names and the different properties of the shapes, i.e. a square has 4 sides of the same length and 4 corners.

We created Shape Monsters to demonstrate our learning.  We hope you like them. (And aren’t too scared!)
