P1A began the week watching a performance by the Kakatsitsi Drummers from Ghana! They told us all about the different types of drums they played. We had good fun clapping along with the beat of the drums!

There will only be one reading book going home this week and our sound will be e. The number and letter formation homework booklets will be handed out as normal on Monday and Tuesday of next week.

Show and Tell this week will be for the Clever Clogs!

Thank you to everyone who has returned their Learning Pathway. We kindly ask that you take the time to add a short comment to the home learning cog before returning to us.

P1A Phonics

P1A have been learning about the sounds c and k. They both have the same action. Please see the link for the songs if you would like to have a go at home.

Today we had lots of fun working together to sort out pictures according to the sound that the word started with!

A quick reminder that the girls and boys are not in school on Monday or Tuesday, so we will see you all on Wednesday morning!

P1A What is happening this week.

Homework – We have started giving out the Letter and Sound formation booklets. These are to be completed on a Monday night (1 page) and handed in on Tuesday. The Number formation booklets will go home on a Tuesday night (complete 1 page) and should be handed in on Wednesday.

Show and Tell – It is the turn of the Brain Boxes and the Super Stars this week! We are looking forward to seeing what you take in on Friday morning!

Phonics – We have started our new sound, n. We will be learning the c and k sound later in the week! Please see the link to the n song if you would like to practise at home.

P1A Science

We have been learning all about germs and how we can help to stop them spread by washing our hands properly! To show how germs spread we covered our hands in glitter and had to shake hands with each other. This quickly spread the glitter round the class, the same way germs would be spread! We also practised washing our hands correctly.

P1A Show and Tell

The class will begin Show and Tell on Friday! This is a great opportunity to develop our listening and talking skills.

Each Friday morning a different table will get the chance to bring in a small object from home which they can talk about to the class. We will let you know if it is your child’s turn by putting a note in the homework pack. This week will be the turn of the Whizz Kids and the Bright Sparks!

The object could be a favourite book or toy. We kindly ask that valuable items and electronic devices are not taken in for Show and Tell.

P1A Homework Packs

Just a note to say that the pupils will not get their homework packs home on a Friday. So do not worry if one did not come home in the schoolbag today!

Phonics – we have had a busy week practising our new sounds s,a and t. Check out the apples and turtles that we have made!

Have a lovely weekend!

P1A Homework Packs

We hope you all enjoyed sharing the reading books that went home yesterday! We ask that pupils take in their homework pack every day, making sure that they include the reading book, word booklets and red jotter. This will mean that we can keep you up to date with the reading activities that you will need to do at home.

We also have a number of items of lost property that have not been labelled. If you are missing anything please pop in to see us or check the lost property boxes at reception.

Many thanks!

Primary 1 Phonics

We have started learning our initial sounds during phonics activities in primary one this week. So far we have covered the ‘s’ and the ‘a’ sound. We have practised our new sounds using our jolly phonics songs and actions. A list of the sounds and actions can be found in your child’s read reading record. You can access the jolly phonics songs we have been using by clicking on the following links:
