Maths Week 2021

Last week it was Maths Week across Scotland. We asked classes to share work that they had been doing in Maths and Numeracy. Thank you to our Primary colleagues for sharing some of the lovely learning they engaged in.

Room 3 shared some of the work they’re doing across the curriculum, linking maths to early literacy skills and daily routine: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1JTPDvjQdOriDlqpK9OhsCArSnjucNP8rArHW6wRXDxc/edit?usp=sharing

Room 4 are exploring colour through their interdisciplinary learning.

One of our pupils in Room 6 is working on number recognition and counting.

A Busy Start To The Term In Room 4

Room 4 have had a busy start to the new term.

We have been having lots of fun learning through play and this has helped us introduce our new topic by exploring different means of transport through art, songs and sensory play! We have made drawings using cars and trucks of various sizes!

We are also exploring the outdoors and taking advantage of the good weather!

We enjoyed making some ladybug crackers and smelling and touching all the ingredients we used!

One of our classmates had his birthday! We celebrated with him and did some festive games, like individually wrapped pass the parcels!

LIVE PE: Wednesday 24th Feb at 2 pm

We have big news this week! Tomorrow (Wednesday) we will have a LIVE PE lesson. To join us all you need to do is to check the ‘PE at Home’ class on Wednesday at 2 pm and there will be a link for the ‘Meet’.

Celebrations In Room 4

Room 4 has been very busy celebrating different events and successes over the last few weeks.

We have been getting ready for Christmas! We have put on our festive clothes and hats and made Christmas ornaments to decorate our class tree!

We made decorations with our footprints and hand prints and we enjoyed the sensory play with the paints.

We made the Scottish flag to celebrate St. Andrews day.

In Room 4 we have been developing our skills when using our trikes. We enjoy going on our trikes and finding new ways of keeping active!
