Starting School Topic

Our Starting School topic has helped us to learn all about the school routines, rules and where to find resources.We have enjoyed listening to the Golden Rules stories and also Come to School Too Blue Kangaroo as part of this topic.
We know what school is like here in Scotland and have been comparing this to the experiences of children starting school in Ghana. 
Mrs Coyle visited Ghana during the summer and has been able to tell us about her visit and she even shared her photographs.We especially liked the pictures of Harry the class bear in Ghana and the lizard that Mrs Coyle photographed. 
 We had a little taste of some Ghanaian food. Rice with vegetables and some mango.
 Miss Kingsley cooked the rice for us.
 Everybody had a little tub to try.
 After the rice we had some mango. 
 We used our thumbs to let the teachers know what we felt about each food. 

Outdoor Learning

 We had fun in the playground recently, but it wasn't playtime.
 We were actually on a shape hunt. 
 We were working with our partners to spot 2D shapes in our local environment. 
 We had been learning about 2D and 3D shape as part of our maths programme.
We kept a record of all of the shapes that we found.
  We found lots of circles, squares and rectangles but not very many hexagons.
 We are looking forward to another shape hunt when we can try to find some 3D shapes.

Welcome to Primary 1C

Settling in

  Primary 1C have settled happily into school life. It has been a very busy first term with so many new things to see and do. 
 We have worked really hard, learning about our Jolly Phonic sounds, counting and writing numbers and of course making lots of new friends!   

As part of our maths and language programmes, we have lots of opportunities to take part in active learning.

We use a variety of activities to reinforce the skills that we are working on. 
This is a very enjoyable way to consolidate our learning and also a great chance to work with different people in our class. 
We can take turns

We always enjoy using the smartboard
We can share resources

Our computer skills are improving. 
We are trying to remember to left click on the mouse but it can be a bit tricky sometimes
We like working with a partner

 Golden Time
Every Friday afternoon we have golden time as a reward for staying on the star. As you can see from the pictures, this is lots of fun!
We love our breakout space. It is so bright and colourful!

There are lots of games and toys to play with at golden time. 

Primary 7 Buddies

We have been supported in settling into the routines of the school by our Primary 7 buddies. 

We have really enjoyed getting to know them and are always very happy to see them. 

They have been so helpful, especially when we first started to go to the dinner hall.
It was reassuring to see a friendly face and to know that they would be there to remind us where to go and what to do. 
They took us on a tour of the school which was lots of fun. 
We just love our buddies!
