P2/1 have settled really well and are enjoying being at school with their friends. Primary 1 have been learning their initial sounds and segmenting and blending to read three letter words. Primary 2 are getting on great with their vowel digraphs and Block 1 and 2 tricky words. In maths Primary 1 have been working on numbers within 10. We are building a good understanding of numbers by using our fingers, Numicon, cubes and Rekenreks to represent numbers. Primary 2 are developing skills in partitioning and place value. We have really enjoyed taking our numeracy work outdoors. We love our daily Number Talks and love sharing our strategies. In topic we went on a Tree Trail of our playground. We learned about all the different trees and collected leaves. We then counted them and made a picture.
