A Little Bird Told Me by P2H and P2/3H

Robin found a big flock birds and she flew with them to Bethlehem. She found a special baby called Jesus. Mary and Joseph were in a stable. A star guided people to the stable. Angels told people about the baby and guided them to the stable. Three wise men, camels, shepherds and sheep all followed the star to visit the baby. It took them all a long time to get there. Some of them had to travel 2,000 miles. It was very tiring and sometimes they had to rest. The birds could travel quickly because they didn’t have to follow roads.

World Book Day

To help us celebrate World Book Day, the children in the Early Stages are being encouraged to tell us about their favourite books. On Thursday 7th March the boys and girls in Primary 1 to 3 can, if they wish, bring in a copy of their favourite book or can draw a picture of/tell us about their favourite characters/events in a story/non-fiction book. We will, as always, have lots of books in our class libraries for the children to read also.

Many thanks for your support with this.

Primary 1 book bags

Just a wee reminder to have a daily peek in your child’s book bag when it comes home at the end of a day. Things to look out for are ORT word trees and word cards, letters about our upcoming trip and other events, P1s’ Scots Week poem and new sounds/tricky word flashcards that we have learned in our literacy lessons.

Please, also, give book bags a regular clear out and ensure that they only contain ORT/shared readers, sounds pockets and any correspondence that you wish class teachers to see, e.g notes about appointments etc.

Many thanks

Mrs Law, Mrs McConachie and Miss McLean

Primary 1 sounds packs

The children in Primary 1 have been working so hard, learning all of their letter sounds in class and at home.  It is really helping their reading and word building!

Sounds we have learned to read and write to date are:

a b c d e f g h i l m n o p r s t u

If any of these sounds are missing from your sounds pack then please do let us know, via  your child’s reading record, and we can make sure you have a full set.

Thank you very much

NAMES!

Primary 1 have already started to collect a number of items of lost property.  Unfortunately the items are not named!  Please help us, and your child, by naming everything that belongs to them.

If you are missing a school sweatshirt (or anything else) please come in and speak to us.

Thank you very much
