We have completed our next set of sounds. Here are some brilliant examples of listening to and writing sounds on our whiteboards. (Great bullet points in our lists too!)


Here is a link to the songs the children sing to help them learn the sounds – we have covered up to letter “d”. Enjoy!


St Andrew’s Day


Posted by Jen Jamieson | Posted in Inter-Disciplinary Learning | Posted on 25-11-2013

This week, we are going to find out about St Andrew and how Scottish people might celebrate St Andrew’s Day. Some of our new Learning Areas have a Scottish theme this week. I’m looking forward to seeing the flags the children might design at the easel, and already, we have a sample of weaving!

Christmas Fayre….


Posted by Jen Jamieson | Posted in Inter-Disciplinary Learning, Literacy, Transition | Posted on 25-11-2013

We worked with our Nursery Buddies to make special cookie mixtures to sell at the Christmas Fayre. We also helped them to complete a piece of work about castles.
In our writing lesson, we made posters to advertise the Christmas Fayre. Our 2 winning posters are on the Primary 1 door and in the cabinet in the playground – please look out for them!

Numeracy Homework


Posted by Jen Jamieson | Posted in Homework, Numeracy | Posted on 25-11-2013

The children have been working very hard this term learning about numbers to 10 and 20.

Please look out for some homework sheets in bags on Tuesday night. I am hoping to work with the children on a 1:1 basis next week to assess what they have learned and what they need to do next. It would be great if you could support this at home by playing some of the suggested activities on the sheet. Just incase these sheets go missing, here are some of the suggested activities for you to try at home.


12 13 14 15
16 17 18 19 20



  • Muddle the cards then put them into the correct order.
  • Show the cards one at a time, asking your child to say the number.
  • Use counters/buttons/sweeties to play Bingo – put your counter on the number….
  • Turn all the number cards face down. Turn over and say the number.
  • Treasure Hunt – hide the cards around the room. Ask your child to find them, saying the number as they do so.
  • Put all the number cards into a bag or hat. Pull them out one at a time, child should say the number.

If your child is able to do these activities confidently, here are some ideas to extend their learning.

  • Bring me the number after….
  • Bring me the number before….
  • Bring me the number between….and ….
  • Bring me the number 1 more than….
  • Bring me the number 1 less than….

Thank you for your support. Any problems, please let me know.
