Cooperative Work Group Challenge

Miss McCabe set each group in our class a Cooperative Work Challenge recently. We had to work in our groups to create a poster that would let any visitors to our class know what our group names are.
It was quite difficult for us at first, but with a little help from Miss McCabe we were able to plan and create our posters. Everyone had to listen and cooperate. We had a time keeper, a materials manager, an encourager and an aire traffic controller at each group to make sure we were kept on task. Miss McCabe was impressed at our quiet voices and helping hands!
As well as designing the poster with each group name, primary 1 also made glittery name hands.
We succeeded in our challenge - Miss McCabe has attached our posters to ribbon so that they can hang from the ceiling. Don't they look fantastic?!

Golden Time

When our class behaves well and we all stay on the Golden Star, we get Golden Time. If we have no traffic lights in the week, we get the chance to enjoy the whole half hour of Golden Time on a Friday afternoon. Primary 1a love the Golden Time games! Miss McCabe likes to see everyone enjoying Golden Time.

Active Learning in Primary 1

As part of our Maths and Language programmes, we have lots of active learning activities. We enjoy lots of different things from using the computers and the Smartboard to using multilink and playing matching games. It is a great chance for us to work with different people in the class. Miss McCabe says we work very well at active learning times!

Primary 1a First Full Day

Today was our first full day in Kirklandneuk Primary! We were excited to stay for the whole day, and it was great to see our buddies at lunchtime. Everyone in our class had a fantastic time in the dinner hall!

Starting School

Primary 1a have settled well into school life. We are all working hard and enjoying being in room 1!

In our first week, we decided that we should have a set of rules for our class. This is to make sure it is a happy and safe place to learn each day. We want to be able to work and play happily together. As well as thinking about how we work inside the class, we also thought about how we would behave outside the classroom. With Miss McCabe's help we chose our own 'quality indicators' to remind ourselves what our worktimes, listening times and lines should be like.
Everyone who visits our class comments on how good we are at listening, working quietly and playing together co-operatively!

Primary 1a have been helped to settle into school routines by our primary 7 buddies. We have enjoyed getting to know our buddies - the older children visited our class to read a story and they have also been playing games with us in the playground. When we go to the dinner hall for the first time our buddies will be on hand to give some friendly reassurance and to help out when needed.

Look at the photos of our 'quality audience', 'quality line', 'quality work-time' and 'quality group-time'. We have been trying our very best!
