P1,2 News

Last week we were learning how Scottish food is made and we made a lovely soup. We all loved it. In our soup was kale and potatoes. We have been painting some numbers by printing them with Numicon. We have been acting out a Katie Morag story. P1 wrote a sentence about a cat and coloured in a picture to go with it.

In p1/2 we have been learning with Numicon. P2 learned how to weigh it and how to make it balance so that we knew we had made 20. The P1s used playdough and drawing to make 2 more with our Numicon pieces. Mr Bewsey read us a story and he was asking us questions about it. Before the holidays a storyteller came in and read us a bread and butter story. In the story it turned out that the lassie was afraid of nothing.
