We had a fantastic time in Primary One celebrating Maths week. We had additional maths resources to experiment and use during play based learning and e focussed on 2D shape, finding 1 more than and number recognition during our lessons. Children were encouraged to used the Interactive whiteboard for maths games, aswell as working with a partner. Other lessons were steered towards 'problem solving' for Maths week. For example, during World Around Us we investigated which materials we could or could not use to make a boat for a goat, and in Art we used 3D shape models to make a house for a mouse, experimenting how to join and fit together.
Making Fruit Salad!
A very busy week in P1!
We found it very tricky choosing photos for the website this week as the children were so busy, as they are every week. Some highlights of the week included making toast and noticing changes caused by heat in 'world around us', using 'The haircut' and 'Percy the Park keeper' as our book for reading and writing, focussing on counting accurately to 10 and learning our new sound 't'.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
The children had a wonderful time this week exploring play based learning activities linked to the hungry caterpillar. We made a display for our classroom my making individual caterpillars, we counted caterpillars accurately to leaves, we played fruit and vegetable board games and used sorting rings to sort healthy and unhealthy foods. We also enjoyed an Autumn walk during 'world around us'. Enjoy our photos!

A visit to the beach
Today we visited the beach. It was a perfect end to our first few weeks at school. Everyone was on their best behaviour, we collected shells for our sand area in the classroom, and loved digging and playing with friends! See also, some photos which show our numeracy work from this week. We are encouraging lots of accurate counting in a line, well done everyone!
