​Our Classroom Rules

Dina the Dinosaur visited our classroom and explained our classroom rules. Our classroom rules help us to work hard and behave well.

Dina says we must-

 

1. Always try our best

2. Remember to use a 'quiet hand'

3. Listen carefully

4. Remember our manners

5. Be nice to each other

 

If we can follow our classroom rules we get Dina Chips.

When we collect ten Dina Chips we can choose a Dina Prize as a reward.

 

 

Star of the Week

Every Friday a child is chosen to be ‘Star of the Week’ and they get to take the class mascot home for the weekend.

 

 

Assembly

Every Monday morning, as part of our Assembly, certificates are handed out to individual children who have achieved something special during the previous week. Please talk to your child about their achievement if they come home with a certificate.

 

 

PE Days

Our PE days are on Mondays (P1A), Tuesdays (both) and Thursdays (P1B).  Please ensure your child has their PE kit on these days.

Please ensure your child has their PE kit on these days. They need shorts, t-shirt and trainers this term. P.E kit should be clearly labelled with your child's name and class. This should be brought in on a Monday and kept in school until Friday so that it can be taken home to be washed

 

 

Homework

Please take time to practise sounds, word boxes, tricky words, reading and number stories at home. Please refer to your child’s homework diaries.  Please ensure that you sign your child’s homework.  Comments are welcome too if your child has completed this well or if they have had any difficulties if you wish.

Please take some time to share stories and play games with your child at home.

Children are welcome to bring in items from home to explore in our Investigation Station.

 

 

Our Topic

Our topic for this term is going to be "Winter".

 

 

Language

This term we will be learning the sounds o, u, l, f, b, ai, j, oa, ie, ee/or, z, w, ng, v, y, x, oo, ch, sh, th and qu.

This is all part of our school's Jolly Phonics Programme.

The children will be learning to recognise, write and blend words using these sounds.


In addition, the children will ​be learning about simple sentence construction.

 

Maths

We will be counting orally to twenty and beyond. 

The children will learn to form the numbers 0-10 correctly and they will consolidate their learning through play activities. 

We will continue to focus on mathematical language - more than, one/two more than, less than, one/two less than, largest, smallest, numbers before, after and between. 

 

The children will be introduced to the concept of addition and learn simple addition facts to five.


The children will use simple graphs to handle and interpret data.

The children will develop their understanding of the language of measure eg. longer/shorter, taller/smaller and which holds more or less.


 

Religious and Moral Education

It will be vital this term that we continually reinforce classroom rules and routines that are set.  We are also encouraging new friendships by involving children in different group activities.

In Primary 1 we explore Christianity. They will attend our weekly assemblies at school and we will also focus on developing respect for others’ needs, feelings and opinions.

As part of our Winter topic, we will be learning all about the celebration of Christmas.

 

Expressive Arts

This term we will be creating lots of pictures linked to our Winter topic, number and sounds. We will focus on improving the children’s fine motor skills, cutting skills and encourage creativity.

We will be singing lots of songs linked to our Jolly Phonics sounds and the children will receive specialist input from Miss Crombie on a fortnightly basis.

 

Health and Wellbeing

In P.E. we will be working with Mrs Duignan to support and improve the children’s gymnastics skills.  One important factor is encouraging each child to dress independently for P.E. and to be able to organise and fold their clothes.  In addition to gymnastics, we will also be participating in social dance.
