Primary One

Primary One

Welcome to Primary 1. We have lots of fun playing and learning together!

Information about our week:

P.E.

Primary One have P.E. on a Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure long hair is tied back on these days and that shirts and ties are avoided as this helps your child change for P.E. Please also make sure that all items of clothing are named to help reunite them with their owners if misplaced. Gym kits can be kept in school for the duration of the term and will be sent home at the start of each holiday for a trip to the washing machine!

Homework

Homework is given throughout the week and will follow the pattern below:

Literacy – reading (alternating between shared readers and ORT texts), sounds (please look out for a zipped plastic wallet containing the letter sounds we have learned each week, for additional practice at home) and common words (these will be added to the same wallet as we learn them in class).

Numeracy and maths – please continue to look for, and play games with, numerals and numbers in your home and outside environments to help your child to recognise numbers between 0 and 30.

Health and Wellbeing – Home activities linked to our Building Resilience programme may come home from time to time.

All homework should be brought back to school the following day, and signed as appropriate, in your child’s book bag.

In addition to this, it is important that book bags are checked on a daily basis for letters and correspondence from school.

If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to contact us through the school office or catch us at the end of the day.

Thanks for your ongoing support.

Mrs McConachie, Ms Law, Miss Watson and Mrs McIntyre
