P1 are Learning It, Loving It and Growing It!

P1 have been learning about winter through co-operative learning strategies.  The children worked with their talking partner to discuss the features of winter and they made graffiti boards showing what they had learnt.

P1 have been enjoying their PE times with Mrs Campbell the PE specialist and with Miss Reid.  The children have been learning how to work safely in the large hall and have been learning Basic movement skills.P1 have also been enjoying working with our work experience student, Laura Melrose, from Lasswade High School on Wednesdays.

We are looking forward to learning different skills through our IDL theme of ‘Plants’ this term and are enjoying opportunities to work with different people using Cooperative Learning Strategies. On the 10th of February our parents are coming in to plant bulbs with us. The money raised will help us to buy seeds and vegetables for our plot in the garden. If you would like to help in the Spring please let a member of the P1 team know.

We are also going to be working on our novel study which is ‘Percy the Park Keeper’. During this time the children will not have ORT books home to read but are encouraged to try different genres and will be given a sheet to record the different titles they have tried.
