Literacy

Thursday 3rd March

As part of our Word Book Day celebrations in Primary the pupils were asked to share their favourite place to read and as you can see from the pictures the pupils have some very comfortable places to read and enjoy their favourite books ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–

Friday 4th February

This week the pupils were learning their ‘r’ words for their Linguistic Phonics and as part of this the pupils competed a range of practical activities which we were able to carry out outside including a game called Spell-Bounce where the pupils have to bounce their ball into the correct letters in the right order. Pupils also enjoyed using a range of classroom resources to help reinforce and revise their words for this week ๐ŸŽพ๐ŸŽฒ๐Ÿ“š

Wednesday 2nd February

As part of National Storytelling Week the Primary 4 listened to a few online story books that linked storytelling to our 100 Days of School celebrations this week. The pupils listened to ‘100th Day Worries’ and ‘Fancy Nancy the 100th Day of School’. It was also a different way for the pupils to hear a book being told instead of classroom staff reading the book to them ๐Ÿ“”๐Ÿ“–

Friday 14th January

This week the pupils were learning their ‘aw’ words for their Linguistic Phonics and as part of this the pupils competed a range of practical activities which we were able to carry out outside. The pupils really enjoyed using the tennis racquets and balls to sound out their words and as well as using chalk to write their words on the yard. Great activities which the pupils loved as they were able to get out of the classroom to enhance their learning.

Wednesday 15th December

As we move towards concluding our second class novel of the year ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ - a book which the pupils have really enjoyed, they were set a very interesting challenge by Mr Clifford. Mr Clifford had organised the main parts of the story for each Reading Group, unfortunately they were dropped with the parts become all mixed up. The pupils were then tasked with organising and sequencing the parts into the correct order; this activity required the pupils to recall key events from our novel as well as working together with our reading group members to successful complete the activity.

Wednesday 24th November

For our phonics work today the pupils were practicing their ‘igh’words through ‘Connect the Dots’ activity. The pupils really enjoyed the experience of practicing their spellings in a practical way using different colours of chalk using the main school yard the staff.

 

Wednesday 10th November

 

For our phonics work today the pupils were practicing their ‘ay’ words through ‘Paint in a Bag’ activity. The pupils really enjoyed the experience of practicing their spellings in a practical way and the staff enjoyed the lesson as it is very unusual that lessons involving paint end up so clean and tidy ๐Ÿ™Œ

Friday 24th September

 

P4 pupils experimented with a range of different resources to practice their ‘oa’ words and had great fun completing this lesson outside in the nice weather. Pupils were able to use elastic bands, Lego, dry pasta and Numeracy cubes.
