Lighthouses and “f” for Rainbow Fish!

Primary 1A have been getting up to lots of exciting things this week!

On Monday we read the Lighthouse Keepers lunch and we made our own lighthouses using recycled kitchen roll tubes, plastic cups and tissue paper. We had great fun!

We have been working super hard in maths this week, practicing our counting from 0-10. We worked in different groups to order our numbers, practice our number formation and work on recognising quantity for each number. It was hard work but Primary 1 all did exceptionally well!.

We have been continuing our work on our phonics sounds. On Thursday we did the “f” sound. We talked about how the sound “f” appeared at the start of the word “fish.” We read the rainbow fish story and we made our own super cool versions of a rainbow fish using a paper plate, blue paint and multi-coloured bits of paper for the rainbow scales! Miss Munro cannot wait to get them up on her wall!

In science we have continued talking about our senses. This week we did our sense of taste! We got to try food that was sweet, sour, bitter and salty.  We talked about which ones we liked and didn’t like. Primary 1 agreed that the sweet chocolate was our favourite choice.


Please remember to return all learning pathways by Monday the 1st of October with the “home” section completed. There is help and advice on how to complete this with your child in their learning pathway folder. Please also ensure that you return the activity that they completed in school with the learning pathway. Thank you! 🙂

The P1 parents curriculum evening will be held next week on Tuesday the 2nd of October. The following Tuesday (9th) you are invited to attend an open morning from 11:00-11:45am where you can join in with an fun activity that we will be doing in class. I look forward to seeing you all at some-point in the next two weeks.

Hears to another exciting, fun-filled and hard-working week in P1A!

Have a lovely weekend!

Miss Munro 🙂
