Primary 2 are able to add!

Today  Primary 2 were using different ‘adding strategies’ to help solve number problems.  We have been using our stories of ten, as well as doubles and near-doubles, to help us to add two numbers together.  We really enjoy singing songs to help us learn our number bonds.  Here are the links to a few of the songs we have been singing (and rapping to) in class.

What makes ten?

Doubles 1-5   Doubles 6-10

Ask us about the games we’ve been playing that help to reinforce our skills in addition.

We’re back!

Happy New Year to you all!

Everyone seems to be happy to be back this week. I’m happy the snow is staying away so far.

We’ve started the term by looking at some Julia Donaldson books in Scots. We listened to The Gruffalo in Scots on YouTube:Find it here

In Maths we’re adding within 100 and then 1000 and found this nice activity on the Top Marks website which has lots of options: Click here to have a look

Scottish poems will be sent home for homework on Monday 16th January so keep an eye out in bags.

Counting in Autumn

 

When we got back to class we thought about other things we could count outside. Twigs, shells, sea glass, flowers, petals, branches and pegs were a few of our ideas. Maybe you could think of a few others while your out and about this weekend.

P1 Parents’ Meeting Reminder

A wee reminder…

Don’t forget we have our P1 Parents’ Meeting on Wednesday evening (7 September). This is a wonderful opportunity to hear all about your child’s learning in Primary One. We will also share ways to support their learning at home. Please come to the main entrance to meet together first in the gym hall at 7pm.

We’d love to see you there!

Evening News Photoshoot

On Wednesday 7th September P1 will have their photos taken for the Evening News. Please would you make sure that they wear their jumpers / cardigans on this day so that we all look fabulously smart. You will receive another letter nearer the time that will give you details about how to order the special edition of the Evening News that will feature their picture.

Many thanks

Miss Hall, Mrs Sawers and Mr Bennett

P1 Autumn Term

Please take a look at the learning we will be doing this term. You will also receive a paper copy inside your childs’ bookbag. Please sit down and read this with your child. It is good to keep the copy on your fridge so you can refer to it throughout the term. This can help you think up some prompting questions so that when you are talking to your child about their day at school they (hopefully) won’t say ‘I can’t remember’ or ‘We did nothing.’

Here’s a copy in case your copy gets misplaced.
