Literacy Workshop P3/4

It was great to see some of our parents coming along to join us for our Active Literacy lesson. We were able to show them how we work with our partners for our Reciprocal teaching and Elkonin Boxes work as we practice our sound and common words. We also explained the different reading activities we do such as a Beginning, middle and end to our reading book for that week. We had great fun teaching you what we learn about!

‘Bag of Worries’ P3/4

Primary 3/4 have been reading the story ‘Bag of Worries’ by Virginia Ironside. We talked about the worries of the little girl and used this book as a circle time activity to explore our own worries. The children were able to identify who they would want to go to if they had any worries and understood that it was best to tell someone however big or small their worry may have been.

Once we spoke about our worries we went outside and blew our worries away. IMG_4154 IMG_4155 IMG_4156 IMG_4157  IMG_4159
