P1H have had some creepy additions to our classroom. Spiders, skeletons and even eyeballs have been spotted! The boys and girls have been carving pumpkins and creating some firework pictures.
Each year pupils in Primary 7 are 'paired' with pupils in Primary 1 and become ‘Reading Buddies'. These buddies read to one another and discuss vocabulary in the stories.
The buddy scheme is a fantastic opportunity for both the P1 and P7 pupils where they have the opportunity to interact with each other, make a new friend and learn from other children. It's great to listen in to their conversations and hear the children talking openly about themselves, their hobbies and the things that have happened that day.
This year P1Hu and P7R have been paired together and have been enjoying getting to know each other and sharing stories in class.
The boys and girls have been busy learning lots of new and interesting things since starting in P1H. We have been learning phonic sounds, the correct way to hold a pencil, how to make patterns and how to sort objects for different criteria. We have been having lots of fun inside the classroom and have been taking our learning outside.
🍁🍂Autumn Leaves Are Falling 🍁🍂
Primary 1H went on a lovely autumn walk. We were on the look out for autumn colours, leaves on the ground and leaves on the trees starting to change colour. The boys and girls spotted lots of lovely red berries for the birds to eat and we even visited our school apple trees. Many of the apples were ripe enough to eat and we collected some to take back to class. After our walk we painted autumn trees and used corks to print the leaves.
