What an exciting week!  Our first class assembly!

We have worked very hard over the past few weeks preparing for our assembly.  Not only have we been learning our lines but we have also been practising the musical accompaniment, painting artwork, making butterfly wands and designing butterflies to decorate the walls.  We have had great fun and have learned lots about the butterfly lifecycle.  We hope you enjoyed watching the assembly as much as we enjoyed performing it!

We have had a very musical week as along with our assembly preparation, we also began a block of lessons with a specialist from the National Youth Choir of Scotland.  We were very good at keeping the beat and had great fun singing rhyming songs.  Our favourite part of the lesson was definitely the singing games with the parachute!

We continued our learning in Literacy this week, revising a selection of digraphs and tricky words and have been practising making up sentences using our digraph words.  We have also started working on our diary writing skills.

In Numeracy we have been practising counting up and down in 2s.  We looked at the pattern counting in 2s makes when we ‘painted’ our numbers on a hundred square and noticed that we ended up with painted columns of numbers.  We were also learning about odd and even numbers, linking this to our counting and did really well playing the ‘coconut’ game.

In Maths we continued to learn about data handling and managed to use the skills we have learned to interpret a variety of pictograms.

In PE we continued our Gymnastics block with Mrs Harris.  We had to use our listening skills to know which position we needed to get into and had to co-ordinate our bodies to make tunnels or obstacles in the ‘road’.  We worked together in teams and had great fun taking turns to tunnel under a whole team!

As part of our Community focus, we were very lucky to have a special visitor in class, A’s dad, Dr Walker!  He came in to talk to us about his job as an Emergency Doctor and taught us how to call for help in an emergency.  We worked in pairs, taking turns to pretend to call 999 for help.  We also talked about the importance of only calling this number if you have a genuine emergency!

Have a lovely weekend!
