This week for literacy Primary One worked on the sounds of ‘au’ and ‘aw’. They made and read words that used these sounds such as haul, Paul and paw, saw, lawn. They read sentences with tricky words and au/aw words. The children practised writing the words and sounds using the cursive script.
For Numeracy the children have been focusing on numbers 11-20. They have been counting and making amounts within 20 and finding which numbers are smaller and larger from groups of numbers up to 20.
The topic focus this week has been with the NSPCC and the children have been working on Speaking Out to Stay Safe. They have particularly enjoyed doing this with the NSPCC character Buddy. They had great fun making their Buddy puppet and creating their dream room on the Buddy zone which you can find on the Childline website. http://www.childline.org.uk
