Primary One

Welcome to P1

Please check that all items of clothing are named – winter hats, scarves and gloves all look very similar!

Shoes, coats and sweatshirts should all be named too – to keep the lost property box small!

Please encourage your child to keep their gloves in their coat pockets and tuck hats and scarves into the sleeves of their coats so they can keep all their outdoor bits and pieces together. We have many lonely gloves lurking around so please just ask if your child has lost any!

Information about our week:

P.E.

Primary One have P.E. on a Monday and Thursday . 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:
Monday – Reading (Oxford Reading Tree or a Shared Reader)
Tuesday – Numeracy/Maths homework (Oxford Reading Tree or a Shared Reader)
Wednesday – Literacy homework (Oxford Reading Tree or a Shared Reader)

All homework should be brought back to school the following day and completed as neatly as possible using a writing pencil in case of any mistakes and coloured pencils for any colouring in.
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 on-going support,
Mrs Sawers, Miss Hall and Mr Bennett
