The brilliant P1’s had a very busy week. They enjoyed a trip down to the beach as everyone went equipped with buckets and spades! Play Based Learning was a big aspect of their five days while everyone took great enjoyment and learning from the Literacy and Numeracy rotations.
It was a tremendously active week for the P2’s. In Art they created sunflowers inspired by the man himself, Vincent Van Gogh. The sunflowers were made using real sunflower seeds! There was fun with the parachute in PE while the outdoor area was used for Numeracy and Phonics games. In preparation for Roald Dahl Day on Monday, the class wrote about the Roly Poly bird. To top the week off, the Bee Bots made an appearance during ICT.
This week P3 focussed on the story "The Day the Crayon Quit." They wrote letters, created pictograms on their favourite colour, went on a shape hunt, counted to 50 and carried out a colour experiment. They had lots of outdoor fun and also learned about road safety.
It was a busy week of planting for the P4’s. Parsley, thyme and daffodil bulbs were all installed in our planting beds. Measuring was the primary theme in Numeracy as the whole school estate was used for this purpose. In ICT, great fun was had with Garage Band while problem solving strategies were ongoing throughout the week.
The P5’s spent a large chunk of their week on PDMU exercises. Describing themselves and others was one particular task that raised everyone’s self awareness! PE sessions at the GAA pitch on Tuesday and multi sports on Thursday kept everyone active and energised.
This week the class started to read their new class book “Kaspar, Prince of Cats” and used their inference skills to design book covers. They also started their new topic, 'The Titanic.' The class focused on the structure and features of the Titanic and finished their week off by replicating these using Minecraft Education. In Numeracy they were focussing on understanding the place value of numbers. They also looked at finding the perimeter of composite shapes with missing lengths. The P6/7’s took their learning outside and used metre rulers to accurately measure shapes.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
