P1 Miss Morrison January 2018

1st Feb 2018

Wow, what a busy month January has been in P1. We started our new topic Fairytales, we started off at the Three Bears Cottage where we learnt about different types of bears, acted out the story in the roleplay area and made porridge, we made chairs for Baby Bear from junk materials and gave Goldilocks ideas of how she could say sorry to the Bears. We then looked at the Three Billy Goats Gruff, during this we looked at different types of bridges and even had our own stem day when we worked in groups to design and build bridges, we all got given a different role. Our third story was The Three Little Pigs, we looked at different types of houses and changed our role play to the three pigs workshop. We are now learning about castles through snow whiter and Cinderella. Our writing focus has been in persuasive writing, we are learning to give our opinion. We say who our favourite character is and why, some of us even have a go at writing who our favourite character is. In numeracy we have been continuing our work on numbers to 7, sorting using Carroll and Venn diagrams and we even went on a shape Hunt. We have started using the iPads and enjoy using the chatterpix app.
