Initially our top priority is happy and settled children – and the children have done themselves proud returning to school with really positive attitudes and ready to learn after being away for so long.
This year our school improvement plan has a strong focus on Literacy as a key area we wish to review and improve. There are also other areas of school development that we have carried on from last year.
If you believe you can help support any area of development in any way , please so get in touch !
I can’t believe it’s June already and there are only 4 weeks left of this school year! Where has the time gone? You have all grown so much, physically and in your learning capacities. Let’s make the most of these last few weeks in P1.
For the next couple of weeks our learning will be centred on the story of ‘My friend the weather monster’. Once again, I have had great fun planning the lessons to accompany this story and really hope you will have just as much, if not more fun using them to explore your learning.
Monday is a very special day where we celebrate and thank our grown-ups for all the things they do for us. Being a parent is tricky at the best of times, but recently, when many of our grown- ups have had to juggle so many different things as well as help us with our learning, I think we have an even bigger thank you to say to them. So, along with our timetable for the week, I have also attached some suggested activities that you might like to have a look at to give you some inspiration for things you might be able to do to show your grown-ups just how much you love them and to thank them for all that they do.
Looking forward to seeing you in the classroom,
Once again, please find attached the suggested learning activities for the coming week.
Whilst I have uploaded the usual range of curricular based lessons, there is also the opportunity to make the most of National Chidlren’s Gardening Week by clicking here to visit and explore amazing website created by Mrs Pentony.
Enjoy the choices and challenges, but remember to please, put your health and wellbeing first.
Hoping you all have a lovely week and looking forward to continuing the journey with you.
Happy Monday P6,
Please find below your timetable for the week. You will see each day posted on our Google Classroom. This does not have to be followed exactly…make it work for you. If you do want some structure to help motivate you then this will be helpful.
Remember to have screen breaks, get outside lots (whilst it is still sunny) and talk about how you’re feeling. I am here for you too…just send me an email if you want a chat.
Our Learning Hero this week is Super Collaborative. This is a tricky one when we are working at home but there are people in your house to collaborate with. It might be you are helping a younger sibling, or an older sibling is working with you? You might be helping mum or dad with things at home…let me know…get mums and dads to email me! :0)
Have an enjoyable week. I am particularly excited about International Day of Dance on Wednesday.
Good morning everyone!
I hope you had a wonderful Easter break and that you are refreshed and ready for our new term. I have put our timetable for the week below…make sure you have a little look. I’m excited for the term ahead.
I want you all to remember that your health and wellbeing is the most important thing to me. Make sure you are getting lots of exercise, that you are taking screen breaks and that you are talking to your grown ups if you are feeling overwhelmed. Remember I am also here for you to talk to so just send me a wee email. Activities do not need to be completed in the same order as the timetable…it’s up to you.
Speak soon! :0)
Good morning P6!
Below you will find your learning timetable for the week. You are not expected to do everything every day. Please make sure you are taking plenty of screen breaks and getting lots of fresh air. I’m looking forward to more wonderful learning this week!
Our Learning Hero this week is Rainbow Respect. Have a discussion at home about what being respectful sounds like, looks like and feels like.

I couldn’t be more proud of all the Primary 1 children and their parents for going over and above with the distance learning this week. I am truly astonished at, not only how much the children have engaged, but more so by their extraordinary commitment to quality learning.
The children have taken my ideas for learning and stretched them way beyond expectations, proving that even when you’re only in your first year of school, you can have exactly what it takes to be a learning hero.
Grace-May won the hero of the week for outstanding independent spelling, but, could I give out stickers from home they would also be going to:
Respectful: Lily – for working with her Mummy and sister around the house and garden to look after he environment.
Responsible: Celia – for tackling almost all of the suggested learning and much, much more!
Collaborative: Alfie – for working with William to make a bug hotel.
Resourceful: Marley – for finding an alternative journey into writing and creating a super poem as a result.
Resilient: Lochie G – for giving 100% to his learning despite feeling quite poorly.
Perseverant: Hendrix – for making continued efforts in his reading and writing.
Aspirational: Eilidh – for linking her learning in fractions with her learning in measure before we’d even gone there!
Reflective: Yussef – for his insightful thoughts in his moods and music learning.
Keep it up next week Primary 1, You’ve set the bar high!
