This week P5 and P1 worked brilliantly together. They were all developing their communication skills, listening to and sharing creative ideas when exploring the autumn leaves. P1 impressed P5 with their reading skills and P5 were taking on a role of responsibility when helping their P1 friends to complete their read to write task. P1 demonstrated their wonderful sounding out and blending skills, as well as their writing, drawing and observation skills. P5 showed brilliant listening, patience and explanation skills.
