Clap your hands!
Today p1/2 tried something a bit different for Music. We linked 3 curricular subjects together to create the start of our very own compositions!
In our teams we had to clap out the syllables in each of our fruity words. Then, we each had a turn of being the conductor. They had to point to each of the pieces of fruit and the other members of the band would clap the syllables out. Each conductor would try to create a pattern using the fruit/syllables/claps.
At the end of the lesson we performed in our groups in front of the class. We had great fun!
P1/2 decided to have a creative afternoon today! We combined what we had learned about Recycling and 3D shapes with our topic, My Local Community. Using recycled materials gathered by staff and parents, we created models of our own homes. We decorated these with scrap paper.
It was really good to see everyone having fun creating their model! Great work everyone!
In maths today, we were learning about directions and using the 4 compass points, North, South, East and West, to direct one another from a starting point to a marker .
Well done everyone and great to be learning outdoors on such a lovely day!
Our nursery class are taking part in National Outdoor Classroom Day 2017. We are toasting marshmallows, cooking in the mud kitchen, making giant artwork and relaxing in the chill out tent! We love learning outdoors!
We have learned so much so far in our new Maths Topic: Data Handling!
We started off by working out when everybody’s birthday was and made our very own graph!
From this we saw that January is the busiest month in our class for birthdays. We also noticed that none of the children are born in June. This was a great way for us to show our gathered information!
We then decided to find some information out about our school. We decided to focus on colours and, as a class, went round the school to ask each teacher what their favourite colour was.
What a fantastic adventure! We even managed to use the stairs in the new build safely when going to visit Primary 3. With all the information gathered, as a class we made a bar graph. This sparked a great discussion as we could clearly see which colour was most popular, which was not etc.
Great work p1A!
