Foundation Stage (P1-P2)

quote

Welcome to P1,2,3 with Mrs Hanvey and Mrs Hazley.

P:E days are Tuesday and Thursday– please send in shorts in a drawstring bag to leave in school.

Dinner money should be sent in on MONDAY for the week ahead.

Primary 1, 2 and 3 had a great time exploring W5.  We took part in a sound workshop, traversed through Climb It, burned off energy in Spacebase and enjoyed learning through play in Discovery.

Superhero and Princess day!

We dressed up as superheroes or princesses to raise money for new playground equipment. We made princess crowns and superhero masks. Thank you to everyone who donated.

 

The Rainbow Fish

We are learning about Under The Sea. We read the story of the Rainbow Fish and created a dance based on the story. We made masks to wear during our dance.

 

Handwriting

We have completed a 5 week course called ‘On The Write Track.’ We focused on different areas to help improve our handwriting: Gross Motor Skills (big muscles), shoulder strength and stability, Visual perception, Fine Motor Skills  and Visual motor integration skills. All these areas work together to help us become better handwriters. Who knew you did not need a pencil to practise your handwriting!!

 

The Golden Mile

Every Monday and Wednesday we do a ‘Golden Mile.’  We are learning to build stamina and as the weeks progress we are walking less and jogging/running more. This exercise not only keeps our bodies healthy but helps our brains to be active when we return to class. We love it!

 

Seaside Topic

We have been exploring the Seaside.

We learned about Lighthouses and why they are so important. We did chalk drawings of lighthouses as a group activity and told our partners what we thought was good about their picture. We think they look great!

We also made easy ice-cream using an ice-cream machine.  We observed how the liquid changed and became more solid when it froze. We used a vanilla flavour in our ice-cream and added different flavours of sauce. It was yummy!

 

Sorting

We have been making sets and talking about our sets with our partner. We also made sets with an odd one out to see if our partner could identify the one that doesn’t belong in a set.

 

Back to school Fun!

We are having lots of fun settling in to the school routine and making friends.

 

Making sets.

P1 are learning to make sets. We can all describe a set and are learning to talk about the ‘not’ set.
