P1c Visit Musselburgh Library

This morning Primary 1C walked to Musselburgh Library. It was a long walk but we managed very well. Mrs Denham was very impressed with how sensibly and quickly we walked there and back.

When we were there we read three stories; I am Bat, One Button Benny and Eric Makes a Splash. Christopher from the library read the stories to us and then we voted on our favourite book. We then had some time to pick a story to read on our own or with a grown up.

Here are some pictures of our trip from today.


PC Smith visits Primary 1!

Primary 1 have been learning about ‘People Who Help Us’ and ‘Emergencies and Risks’.

This week PC Smith came in to chat to us about his job. He explained how his main role is to keep everyone safe whilst also showing us the different parts of his uniform and he even let us go in to his police van. The sirens were very loud and we all agree that it would NOT be nice to sit in the lock up.

We have shared some pictures of PC Smith’s visit.

Our trip to Musselburgh Library is on Monday 19th November. We are leaving school at 9.15am and will be back by around 11.30am. Please remember to wear your jacket and sensible shoes for our walk to the library. Thank you!



A fantastic first term in P1C

We have had a fantastic, busy and exciting first term in Primary 1. Mrs Denham can’t believe how hard we all work and how much learning takes place in our classroom everyday. We have been learning lots of new sounds, using our sounds in words to help us build and blend and also in our writing to make sentences about the stories we have been reading.

We’ve learned about pattern and symmetry in Maths and have been using our number knowledge to count forwards and backwards, find missing numbers and order numbers from smallest to biggest.

Some of our highlights this term;

‘I have loved learning to count up to 50.’

‘I like practising and reading stories.’

‘I like walking round our Walk a Mile with my buddy.’

‘Writing is my favourite.’

‘I like making patterns with the cubes.’

‘Playing with the lego.’

‘Sharing with my friends.’

‘Playing games in the playground.’

‘Colouring in with my friends.’

‘Threading my numberline.’

We hope you all have a lovely October holiday.

Primary 1C and Mrs Denham 🙂



We have had a very busy first week back in Primary 1A. Mrs Denham has been very impressed with how hard we’ve worked – clearly the sunny weather is good for our brains. Our highlight of the week has been our Judo taster session. We learned some fantastic new Judo moves and had lots of fun with the instructor. Although we had lots of fun on Tuesday, we also know how important it is to stay safe and that we can only practise Judo when wearing our suits, on mats and we have a Judo instructor there to help us. Have a look at some of our photos, it might look like we’re rolling around on the floor but trust us – Judo is serious work!

Have a lovely weekend 🙂

giraffes CAN dance in Primary 1A

On Wednesday we had a special visitor in Primary 1. She read us the story of Giraffes Can’t Dance and then we learned some of the dances from the story. We really enjoyed learning the different routines and steps and were all able to remember the names of the dances and the different beats and counts.

Here are some of the pictures of us learning the Cha Cha, Tango and Waltz…proving, in Primary 1a, Giraffes CAN Dance!!
