“You get metal money and paper money.”
“Some money is worth more.”
We’ve been recognising coins and realised that just because a 2p is bigger than a 5p, a 5p is actually worth more because “there are 5 1ps in 5p and only 2 1ps in 2p.”
We’ve also began to exchange coins (up to the value of 10p) E.g. 7p bottles of juice, 5p rubbers… Perhaps we could practise this at home too.
The introduction of self-assessment in our writing is helping us to identify our next steps…
Our new class visualiser is also allowing us to help each other learn. We can project our work onto the SMARTBoard and ask feedback.
“In STEAM with Miss Gallagher we have been making things out of Lego,” thinking about the most suitable ways to meet these requirements.
We learned all about The Easter Story and we all tried our best to retell this story as a drawing…

His friend went to put flowers at the cave but an angel told her that Jesus was alive again. She told everyone and everyone was happy.”
It was lovely to see parents/carers at the recent parent consultations. We’ve had a super term in P1C and everyone deserves the holiday after all their hard work. Enjoy the break!

This week in P1A
This week the class really enjoyed learning about what sort of things we need to have in a town. We looked at what amenities Dalkeith had and then worked in groups to carefully plan our own towns. The groups chose to include features like schools, shops, train stations and houses. This was super exciting and some of the [...]
As a stimulus for writing this week we used Roald Dahl’s story cards. We worked in groups to create our own stories using the cards. We worked with our learning partners to assess Miss Hoffman’s work on the board. We identified that she had sometimes missed finger spaces and had only included the first sound [...]
