Good afternoon. It has been a short but busy week for Primary 1. In Literacy we learned the ‘ai’ sound. We created spelling flowers, played roll and read and snakes and ladders and taught ted how to write words with the ‘ai’ sound.

In Maths this week we have been exploring length and weight. We helped measure the superhero footprints using cubes and measured classroom items. We became human pan balances to find out heavy or light objects around the classroom were. We also played a heavier or lighter game and sorted heavy and light items.

In P.E we are learning basic Tennis skills and played dodgeball. We have been continuing to set up our pet shop and this week we have decided on the name of Pet Shop Pets. In Health and Wellbeing, we explored people who help us and how they help. Here are the children’s reflections:

Angus – “I loved everything in P.E.I liked drawing and feeding the fish.”

Aaron – “I loved everything in P.E too. I liked drawing a fish for our fish tank.”

Emily – “I liked P.E”
