We can look at a picture of the word “bed.” The letters actually make the shape of a bed. We know the first sound in “bed” is “b” so that is the first letter shape. We know that the last sound in the word “bed” is “d” so that is the last letter shape.

We can also make a bed shape with our hands. Our first thumb makes the “b” shape and our other thumb makes the “d” shape. Handy when you want to do a quick check as you’re writing or reading!

It is World Book Day on Thursday, 5th March.
Just a quick reminder that the children have been invited to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. Primary 1 children are also going to be working with their Nursery Buddies on Thursday, so could they also bring in their favourite book to share? Don’t forget to put names on books!

Our much anticipated Primary 1 and 1/2 Ceilidh will be taking place on Monday 9th March at 1:30 – 2:50. It would be great to see you there if you can make it! The children can come to school dressed in anything tartan – from full kilt or tartan hair ribbon! We have made tartan rosettes, so everyone will have something to wear on the day.
Make sure you wear footwear suitable for dancing – audience participation required!
