Come prepared!

Thanks so much,

P1S Forest Kindergarten

Good morning everyone,

Just a little update about Forest Kindergarten which usually takes place each Wednesday.

Every child should have two sessions in the forest. When it is your child’s turn then you will get a letter home to explain.

Last week Kindergarten was cancelled so the children who were supposed to go last week will attend tomorrow. This means that the group who is scheduled to go tomorrow 30.1.19 will begin forest learning after the February break.

If there are anymore changes then we will keep you posted on the blog.

Many thanks,

Miss Davidson and Miss McGhee ๐Ÿ™‚

Primary One Home Learning- Week beginning 10th December 2018

We would like to thank you for coming to see our Nativity today and yesterday. The children have worked so hard preparing it for you all. A big WELL DONE to everyone!

We are certainly in the Christmas spirit now!

We had the opportunity to see the Nursery Nativity today. It was fantastic!

This week we have been learning to:

  • answer questions about the text I am reading
  • revising all initial sounds
  • planning our Christmas party by writing a list and creating invitations
  • recognise the features of an invitation: date, time, place
  • wrap 3D shapes in our Christmas workshop (P1S)
  • design and create Christmas decorations (P1F)
  • counting forwards and backwards in 2s
  • creating symmetrical images by using materials (pasta, cubes, shells)

Next week we have our Christmas Party on Tuesday afternoon. We are all very excited!

This will be our last blog post before the Christmas holidays.

We would like to wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS and A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Thank you so much for your continued support this year and we look forward to seeing everyone in January 2019.

Just a little blog post to let you know that some children will have brought home a sheet with all sounds covered. The sounds highlighted yellow are the sounds your child should work on with you.

We appreciate your support at home with this.

Many thanks

P1 Home Learning- Week beginning 3.12.18


We have been working so hard preparing our Nativity for you all. A huge thank you to all parents/carers for supporting your child to learn lines or with costumes. We really do appreciate it.

As you will be aware, the Nativity has taken over our week this week so here is a brief overview of other learning in class.

Literacy/Numeracy/ Other Curricular Areas

We have been learning to:

  • identify the features of a card and writing our own Christmas Cards
  • revise all sounds and tricky words
  • add together two numbers on a number line. 6 + 3- start on 6 and jump along 3 from 6
  • count in steps of 2
  • ordering the planets- can you name the planets at home?

We can’t wait to share our Nativity with you next week!
