We celebrated Numeracy week in school with lots of fun activities! We especially enjoyed dressing up for 'Number day' at the end of the week and had our parents and grandparents in for a 'Play & Stay' session to join in with Number fun in P1!
Exploring number in P.E - Playing 'Bear Hugs'
Busy making 8 legs for a spider

We had fun celebrating World Book day in school.
We brought in our own props for 'Show & Tell' and made up characters linked to our props.  P1 had lots of super ideas!
We also enjoyed dressing up as our favourite book characters and reading with our Reading buddies.
We read the story 'Owl babies' during our Shared Reading in class and made yummy owl biscuits after!  It was Fairtrade week also so we made sure to use Fairtrade ingredients!
What a funny month this has been for us as we are learning from home! 
The P1s in CIPS have really impressed me with their super attitude to their home-learning and amaze me every day with their creativity in their work : ) 
We are able to stay connected through our online learning app, 'Seesaw'.
Here's just a little of what we have been up to in P1.
