Primary 1’s Learning Week

Hello Everybody,

this week we have been learning to work out change from 10p, 20p and 50p.  Please challenge the children at home.

We have been healthy food eating to keep our bodies healthy and getting lots of exercise.

Our seeds we planted for the Bees are growing well!!

We made crafts for the Summer Fair which is today and we have been rehearsing really hard for our class assembly.

Hope to see on Tuesday!

Be safe in the sun!!!

P1 Farm to Fork

Had to share this lovely email that I’ve received from Jane who was our leader during our visit today:

What a wonderful class visit this morning  –  We really enjoyed having the children in store today, they were a credit to the school  –  hope they enjoyed their visit as much as we did.
Looking forward to working with the school in future with any of our other Farm to Fork topics

Hello Everyone,

the Boys and Girls are all happy to be back at school after the Easter holidays!

Money, subtraction, electricity and healthy foods are some of the curriculum areas that we will be learning about……

We have set up our very own shop in the classroom which we are very proud of, Daniel took a photo of it:

We’ll be having lots of experiences working with money as a customer and as a shopkeeper.

Have a good weekend!!!

Hello Everyone,

Spring is here at last!!!!  We’ve been working hard learning the days of the week, months of the year and all about the 4 seasons.

We all wrote a descriptive text about a monster egg that hatched in a tree……our ostrich egg hasn’t hatched as yet so fingers crossed it will be soon????

We really enjoyed wearing red for Red Nose Day, here’s what we looked like


Happy Weekend!!!!!


This Week in P1

Hello Everyone,

Happy St Patrick’s Day!!!!

We have celebrated by working on a colour by addition sheet….. we really enjoyed it!!!

We have been working on our space learning wall and found lots of facts about the planets and created star constellations ……. there are two called -the big dipper and the little dipper.

Our writing this week was really good as we made fantastic sentences. We have started to make word worm wizards.  This week Murray, Daniel, Lucy and Jorja found the correct spelling and put the words on our wall – Well Done!!

We have also matched instruments to rhymes – we love that.

Stay Safe!!!!

Hello Everybody,

this week we have learned lots about Space…….

Jordan and Esmae led the painting of our planets – ask the children he names of the planets after the Sun.

We have been adding up lot.s of different numbers within 10 and 20  and practising a lot with our clocks……..

Mrs Carlyle is really proud of the Boys and Girls sentences this week- we have been sounding words, using capital letters, fingers spaces and full stops.

Look out for our Home Learning activities in our yellow bags on Monday and over the weekend we need to look up at the night sky and find star constellations.

stay safe

What a busy week we’ve had in P1……. Mrs Carlyle has been checking that we know all our sounds and can read tricky words.

  • We are learning all about sentences and how to make a sensible one.
  • We are also learning to tell the time : o’clock and half past
  • Lots of learning about Space, the planets and gravity.

We all enjoyed our trip to Dynamic Earth…. here’s a photo

Hello Everybody,

we hope you had a nice Burns Day!

This week in P1 we have been learning to:

  • count in 2’s
  • begin to add up

Murray says ‘we’re good at reading but we need to keep learning’

Logan likes learning about Scotland, we’re been adventures to Stirling Castle in our stories with Hamish Mc Haggis and his friends.

We have also been learning the ‘ow’ sound……….. the phrase ‘brown cow’ helps us remember.

Did you the story of the Little Red House with no doors and no windows and a star inside?  Please ask the children…….
