When we got back to class we thought about other things we could count outside. Twigs, shells, sea glass, flowers, petals, branches and pegs were a few of our ideas. Maybe you could think of a few others while your out and about this weekend.
A wee reminder…
Don’t forget we have our P1 Parents’ Meeting on Wednesday evening (7 September). This is a wonderful opportunity to hear all about your child’s learning in Primary One. We will also share ways to support their learning at home. Please come to the main entrance to meet together first in the gym hall at 7pm.
We’d love to see you there!
On Wednesday 7th September P1 will have their photos taken for the Evening News. Please would you make sure that they wear their jumpers / cardigans on this day so that we all look fabulously smart. You will receive another letter nearer the time that will give you details about how to order the special edition of the Evening News that will feature their picture.

Please take a look at the learning we will be doing this term. You will also receive a paper copy inside your childs’ bookbag. Please sit down and read this with your child. It is good to keep the copy on your fridge so you can refer to it throughout the term. This can help you think up some prompting questions so that when you are talking to your child about their day at school they (hopefully) won’t say ‘I can’t remember’ or ‘We did nothing.’
Here’s a copy in case your copy gets misplaced.
We have already had a fantastic start to the year. The children are all settling in very well and we are looking forward to learning our first sounds today. You will get your first ORT book with Biff, Chip and Kipper either today or tomorrow. Don’t worry we don’t expect your child to read them yet! There is a sheet with the story on, please read this to your child while they look at the pictures. Please encourage your child to turn the pages. There are also some ideas for questions for you to ask them. Find a comfy place to sit and enjoy!
