Welcome to the start of the new session 2018/19. I am looking forward to the year ahead in Primary 1!
Parent/carers – please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
I can be contacted by letter, through the school office or at the door at 3pm.
Homework will start in due course. This will be given out on a termly basis and will include a range of activities, games and family learning experiences.
Our gym days are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday
Please ensure pupils gym kit is clearly labelled and in a suitable bag. Earrings should be removed, if possible, or taped before coming to school.
It would also help your child greatly if they do not wear a tie to school on gym days.
Please let your child know when they have a letter/form in their bag to give to me. I will collect these each morning at 9.00am when the register is taken.
Pupils should bring a water bottle filled with plain water to school each day (no juice please!)
We will be taking learning outdoors in all weather. Please could your child bring a pair of clearly labelled welly boots to school which we will keep in the classroom. Can you ensure your child has a jacket with them everyday and a hat, scarf and gloves in the colder weather.
Keep up-to-date with all of our learning in P1D by following the school twitter (@abercrombyps) and facebook account.
Search for #P1Dsuperstars on twitter to find our posts.

P4W have started their final term before our summer holidays with a bang! We visited Stirling Castle to round off our previous Context for Learning on Castles, we had a great day! Check out some of our pictures below:
This term, our new Context for Learning is the Human Body! We had to work together as team to put together different clues to figure out what it could be. We then completed our plan and thought about what things we would like to learn. We decided we want to find out why we have a funny bone, how we laugh, how we breathe and lots more!
So far, we have had a look inside our bodies at all of our internal organs. Look at some of our pictures below when we pretended to be surgeons and put our classmates back together!:
In Numeracy this term, we’ll be focusing on measuring, angles, position and movement and our multiplication tables. In Literacy, we will be looking at different punctuation in our sentences and improving our WOW words in our imaginative stories. We’ll also be using our Context for Learning to write reports and instructions on how to keep ourselves fit and healthy. We will also be taking part in different STEM activities to do with the Human Body and learning some more French before the end of the school year.
As 2018 is the year of the World Cup, P4W have also decided to have a mini-Context for Learning about Russia 2018. We will have a country who are taking part in the World Cup this year to research and will take it in turns to report on the different games that have taken place. We’re sad that Scotland didn’t qualify this year!
P4W rounded off their recent Context for Learning on Italy by learning about Italian fashion designers and creating our own designs! Miss Wozniak also bought us some Italian food to taste!
We found out about some famous Italian designers including Prada, Gucci and Versace. We then worked in a group to create an item of clothing using recyclable materials and some special sparkly items!
We had a variety of dresses, tops, football strips, belts, handbags, shoes and even a hoodie!
Once we presented our designs to our classmates, it was time to taste some Italian food! Miss Wozniak also brought in some of her favourite Italian foods from home including espresso coffee, amaretto biscuits, some different shapes of pasta and biscotti.
We tried lots of different foods. We had some ciabatta bread, breadsticks, two different types of salami, cheese (including mozzarella!) tomatoes and olives. Olives were not a popular choice!
We loved learning all about Italy. Our favourite parts of this Context were learning some Italian words, learning about the Leaning Tower of Pisa and creating lots of fantastic artwork with Mr Gough and Miss Wozniak.
We can’t wait to find out what our new Context for Learning will be!
