Happy New Year!

We are back and raring to go!

Our main focus as we start the term is learning our Burns poems for Scots Week. The children have chosen from a selection of three:- Up In The Morning Early, Green Grow The Rashes O’ and Ye Banks and Braes. The children will be performing these in front of the class on Wednesday 17th – Friday 20th January and we will choose three winners to go through to the semi final on Tuesday the 24th. One winner from our class will then be chosen to go through to the grand final on Friday 27th of January.

We had great fun playing bingo this morning to help us learn our tables. Here is the link> Click …

We will be starting to learn the 9 times table next week. Please keep practising the 3 and 4 times table at home!

Thank you,

Miss Watson

We’re back!

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.

Welcome to P1

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!

We have really enjoyed hearing about your children’s talking boxes. They talked about so many fantastic things; things they do in their free time, places they have visited nearby and their holidays. Now they would like to tell you about some of the talks they listened to.

We invite you to come and see all the children’s talking boxes on Thursday 26th May at 2:30pm.

We hope you will be able to pop in to hear about all the things our children enjoy doing outside school.

Please come in the through the P1 entrance, where you normally drop off and pick up your children.

Thank you for your support
