King's Park Primary School



 

P1C

Firstly, thanks again to everyone who came to watch our Nativity performances. We had so much fun! This week we have also had our Christmas lunch and taken part in King’s Park’s Top 10 Christmas Sing-a-long!

Here are some other snapshots of learning we’d like to share with you this week…

 

Literacy

We have been developing our reading skills using the Nativity story. We answered different types of questions to help us understand that some questions require us to think a bit more than others. For example “What was Jesus’ mum’s name?” compared to “What question would you like to ask Mary?”

Here are some of our answers:

Maths/Numeracy

We have been learning what symmetrical means. To support this we created our own symmetrical Christmas trees.

We have also been concentrating on our doubles facts and using these to help us answer addition sums.

e.g. “What is 4 + 5? How do you know?”  

“9 because 4 add 4 is 8 and 1 more is 9”

P.E

We showed super teamwork in P.E learning some Scottish dancing with Mrs. Tait. We’re looking forward to showing off our new dance moves at the Christmas party next week!

 

Art 

Elfie asked us to add more Christmas spirit into our classroom so we made some winter snow globes. He thinks they look fantastic up on the wall and we definitely agree! Before we made the snow globes we discussed what made ‘winter’ art and how this was different to ‘summer’ art. This stimulated a discussion on hot/cold colours and helped us create our success criteria for our snow globes (to use cold colours).
