Miss Cunningham’s Reflection Leaflet: Term One

Can you believe Term One is over already? This term has been very enjoyable and the children have shown their talents in Drama and have been hard working in Health. We have MANY expressive actors and actresses in our midst (grab their autographs now!) Please see your child’s class below for further details of what has been taught this term;

P1B and P1C- Early Level

In Health, Primary 1’s have taken part in Circle Times talking about their likes and dislikes. We used this knowledge to recognise and identify similarities and differences with our peers. We enjoyed singing a range of songs to consolidate this knowledge! Perhaps you could ask your child to sing you one or two?

In Drama, the Primary 1 classes explored changing their movement, faces and voices when acting out nursery rhymes. We explored real and imaginary situations including going to the farm and to the supermarket. We enjoyed singing old style nursery rhymes which helped us transform the room, with our imagination, to these various places. Well Done Primary 1!

P2W, P2/3M and P3M- First Level

In Health, Primary 2 and 3 pupils have been demonstrating when they feel different emotions. We created a ‘wheel of emotions’ displaying when we felt happy, sad, angry and excited. We also spoke about traits friendships and relationships may have. We identified what traits a ‘good friend’ and an ‘unkind friend’ would have.

In Drama, Primary 2 and 3 pupils have taken a trip Under the Sea. We have used movements and expression to create roles. We have developed our confidence and presenting skills by presenting our imaginative work, in groups, every week. The classes have used their imaginations to transform the Drama room into the Ocean Floor, At the Beach and Catching Waves at the Surf Park to name a few- It has been a very busy term!

P5C and P5/6K- Second Level

In Health, Primary 5C and 5/6K have identified their perfect imaginary friend, spoken and wrote about their special friend and the qualities they have and created scenarios and solutions for problems that may occur in friendships. They can list and identify positive and negative qualities in relationships and friendships. The classes also briefly looked at bullying and the impact this could have on others.

In Drama, the classes have very much enjoyed creating, adapting and sustaining different roles from the musical Oliver! The children have experimented with movement, expression and voice to portray a vast range of kind and villainous characters. They have created and presented their improvised drama to an audience and have given kind and constructive feedback weekly. We also enjoyed singing some of the songs from the musical too!

P6R- Second Level

In RME, the children have gained an understanding into the religion Buddhism. They researched facts about the religion, created comic strips of the story of the Buddha and created posters to advertise the Vesak Festival. We will continue to learn about Buddhism next term.

P7W- Second Level

In Dance, Primary 7 explored a range of styles, including carnival, to enhance their class topic Rio. They have since developed skills and techniques in a range of styles and cultures including African Dancing and Street Dance. They demonstrated an awareness towards each type of dance and were able to identify similarities and differences between them. They have become more confident in presenting too!

I look forward to teaching your child/ren next term. Will they get a Star Performer certificate and House Points?
