P1 Learning Log

We’re nearing the end of another busy week in P1.

In maths, we begun our learning on money.  The children are really enjoying using different coins to ‘pay’ for things.  Next week, we may even open a toy shop to put our learning of coins and adding to good use.  We will also look at giving change, as our shopkeepers were very low on change this week!  Hence exact amounts were needed.  Please look at the maths grid which was given out a few weeks ago to see how you can be supporting this learning at home.

We also had fun playing games in music.

P1 learning Log

We’re at the end  of yet another busy  week, where are all the weeks going?

We had a visit from Farmer Jim this week. He talked to us about potatoes and helped us to begin to grow our own potatoes.  Watch this space for some updates!


As well as growing potatoes, we’ve been continuing with learning new sounds and practising our number bonds.

Home Learning

In the January newsletter I explained that our approach to  home learning would be adapted in February.

P1 & 2 will continue to receive their tasks as they have done since the beginning of this academic session.  Primary 3 – 7 will receive their literacy & numeracy activities through their Google drive;  engagement with theses activities  will be at the discretion of children and families.   These adapted tasks will be available from today.

I hope that the amendments that have been made will now allow children & families to access  their home learning tasks at a time that is convenient to  personal circumstances.


P2/3 Learning Log

P2/3 did a fantastic job singing ‘The Kirkcudbright Centipede’ today – well done! 🙂

We have been learning about money in maths this week. We have been figuring out how to give change and have enjoyed buying and selling items with our talk partners in the ‘Toy Shop’.

We have started to explore our new topic ‘The Wonders of East Lothian’ by looking at the 7 Natural and New Wonders of the World. As we progress in our topic we will start to explore all the wonderful places in East Lothian – both natural and man made.

Keep up the hard work P2/3! 🙂
