Primary 1 Google Meets

All of our Primary1s are invited to join their teacher(s) for a Google Meet on Wednesday 24th June. The times and links for the Google Meets are below.

Google Meet is the platform we use in East Lothian Council. Please do not hesitate to get in contact before your child’s Google Meet if you are having any technology issues in using Google Meet by emailing cockenzienursery@edubuzz.org

*UPDATE* Many of you are reporting that you have been asked to log in. Apologies, you may have to set up a google account or use an existing google account in order to access Google Meet. If you have a child with an edubuzz account then that will also work.

TOP TIPS FOR USING GOOGLE MEET

  • Try opening Google Meet to check if you need to download anything first.
  • Chrome web browser often works best with Google Meet as it is the Google browser.

Primary 1 Transition

We are thrilled to be able to finally tell all of our children who our Primary 1 teachers are for August. We appreciate that this has been an extremely anxious time for everyone and we appreciate your patience in getting this information to you.

If you have not received an email regarding which class your child will be in for Primary 1 then please contact the school office via admin@cockenzie.elcshool.org.uk. There will be firther information about August posted to you.

We are very excited to introduce;

P1A – Mrs Medlam and Mrs Clark

P1B – Miss Mackie

Daily Challenge – When have you been successful today?


Over the course of this year we have worked hard to embed the school values of curiosity, positivity, success and respect within the nursery. These are values that we look for all of our children to value from age 3 to age 13.

Successful – When have you felt successful today? Did you manage to do something new? Or did you achieve a target that you had been working hard at? How did this make you feel?

Tray Carrying Challenge – At Cockenzie Primary School Nursery we all visit the lunch hall together. Carrying a lunch tray laden with food and a drink is tricky and so the nursery team help to do this. Our children transitioning into primary 1 in August will be asked to carry a lunch tray so Miss Neil came up with the fun idea that everyone could practise carrying a lunch tray.

We would love to see videos and photos of you carrying a tray. Can you manage to have items on the tray? Maybe as a family you could make a tray obstacle course.

As always send your videos and photographs to cockenzienursery@edubuzz.org

Virtual Tour of Primary 1

We invite all of our Pre-School children to come on a virtual tour or primary 1.

Parents and carers you will all receive an email regarding transition today so please look out for this.

Here is a photo album of photographs you may want to look at and discuss with your child as they begin to prepare for their transition into Primary 1.

Daily Challenge – When have you been positive today?

Over the course of this year we have worked hard to embed the school values of curiosity, positivity, success and respect within the nursery. These are values that we look for all of our children to value from age 3 to age 13.

Positive – When were you positive today? Maybe you tried something that you find hard or you did something to make yourself and others feel positive.

Miss Rogerson’s Challenge – Have a look through old photo’s in photo albums or even on a phone. Who is in your family? 
Once you have had a look at photos and had a chat about who is all in your family make a family tree. 


You will need;

Paper, scissors, glue, and photo’s (or you can draw your family) 


Miss Rogerson says “Here is a picture of me when I was little with my sister Rachel. My tree will need lots of branches as I have a big extended family! Is your family a big family or a small one? Families come in all shapes and sizes and everyone’s family tree will look different.”

Daily Challenge – When Have you been curious today?

Over the course of this year we have worked hard to embed the school values of curiosity, positivity, success and respect within the nursery. These are values that we look for all of our children to value from age 3 to age 13.

Curiosity – When were you curious today? Did you ask the question why? What did you learn?

Challenge – Miss Connolly challenges you to build the tallest bean stalk you can.

Days of the Week Song

We love to sing the days of the week song at gather time in nursery.

You can support your child with learning the days of the week by singing this song. You could also write out the days of the week to help with early letter/word recognition.

Once your child becomes familiar with the days of the week you could have fun working out which day it is today, which day it will be tomorrow and which day it was yesterday.

DAYS OF THE WEEK SONG (Adams Family Tune)

Day of the week (clap clap)

Days of the week (clap clap)

Days of the week, days of the week, days of the week (clap clap).

There’s Monday and there’s Tuesday, there’s Wednesday and there’s Thursday, there’s Friday and there’s Saturday and then there’s Sunday too. (Repeat top verse)
