P1 and P2 letter 07.01.21

Dear Families

A very Happy New Year to you all. As you are aware, online learning for the children begins on Monday 11 January. Every morning, the P1 and P2 teachers will post a video explaining the activities for the day. There will also be attachments and links to help the children with their learning. In preparation for this, we wondered if you would be able to send a message or picture via Seesaw to your class teacher, just so that we know you are ok for Monday. (This could be as simple as a Happy New Year message!)

Please remember, that in our classrooms the activities that the children complete are interspersed with lots of play and so will be done throughout the day and not in one sitting. We also stop for milk, story and lunch! Hopefully you will find that these activities will fit into your timetable at home, allowing for your own family and work commitments. We realise that this is a different way of learning for everyone, so please do what is manageable.

If you have any problems accessing your child’s learning or any other queries about home learning, please contact us via email or Seesaw -we are here to help you.

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to hearing from you.

P1 and P2 class teachers

Primary 1 Literacy – w/b 2nd November

This week we have been learning 2 new sounds AND 2 new tricky words. Please look for the sounds ‘u’ and ‘b’ on your laminated yellow sheets, cut these out and add them to your zippy bag.

Please look for the tricky words ‘I’ and ‘the’ on the new laminated orange card, cut these out and add them to the zippy bag too. Continue to practise reading and writing these little cards and playing games with them too.

Thank you.

Primary 1 Literacy – week beginning 27.10

This week Primary 1 will be learning to read and write ‘f’. Please cut this letter from your laminated sheet and add it to your pack. The children have been building and reading lots of words in class – see how many they can share with you at home.

The children will begin to recognise and write tricky words next week and you will receive more information regarding this soon.

Primary 1 Literacy – week beginning 5th October

This week Primary 1 will be learning to read and write 2 new sounds. Please cut the letters ‘h’ and ‘o’ from your laminated sheet and add these to your pack. The children have been building and reading lots of words in class – see how many they can share with you at home.

We read ‘The Highway Rat’, by Julia Donaldson, today and talked about the rhyming words we could hear in the story. We also talked about the characters in the story and how they might have felt when the rat was unkind to them. We linked this to our school value of ‘Kindness’. We will do various activities during the week to help us remember the story!
