Practise the new sounds we have been learning with these jolly phonics songs.
The children have heard and discussed 3 wonderful poems in Scots – Nessie by J.K. Annand, Doctor by J.K. Annand and The Sair Finger by Walter Wingate. They have chosen one of these poems to learn for homework in the week ahead. We hope to have some lovely recitals in class next Monday … please find the links below!
We have also been learning the song ‘Thae Banes, Thae Banes’ which we are looking forward to performing during our Burns assembly … happy learning!

Today Primary 2 were using different ‘adding strategies’ to help solve number problems. We have been using our stories of ten, as well as doubles and near-doubles, to help us to add two numbers together. We really enjoy singing songs to help us learn our number bonds. Here are the links to a few of the songs we have been singing (and rapping to) in class.
Ask us about the games we’ve been playing that help to reinforce our skills in addition.
Happy New Year to you all!
Everyone seems to be happy to be back this week. I’m happy the snow is staying away so far.
We’ve started the term by looking at some Julia Donaldson books in Scots. We listened to The Gruffalo in Scots on YouTube:Find it here
In Maths we’re adding within 100 and then 1000 and found this nice activity on the Top Marks website which has lots of options: Click here to have a look
Scottish poems will be sent home for homework on Monday 16th January so keep an eye out in bags.
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!
