March Newsletter

End of term news…  Your child’s report will come home with them today, please return the paper feedback sheet to your child’s class teacher after the holiday.   This year you will also be sent an electronic version of the report through Parent Portal.  We hope to send all information through Parent Portal in the new session so we will ask for some feedback after the Easter break on how easy it was to access and read the report on Parent Portal.

We would like to wish everyone a very restful, enjoyable Easter holiday and we look forward to seeing you all again on Monday 15th April.  Please see our latest newsletter for an update on some of our school events this term and some dates for your diary for the term ahead.  NFPS Newsletter March 24

Happy World Earth Day!

As part of our literacy today, we decided to enjoy some outdoor learning to also celebrate World Earth Day! We love our outdoor environment and enjoyed practicing this weeks spelling words in loads of active ways! We worked individually, in pairs and in groups to spell tricky words with lots of different resources!

Data Handling in Room 5

Room 5 enjoyed being back at school this week, catching up with all their friends. It was lovely to see everyone again and hear all about their Easter break.

This week in Maths, we have been completing some data handling work. We have been looking at organising data for various graphs and diagrams. We used tally marks to collate information and then compiled it into bar graphs and Carroll diagrams. We were able to answer questions based on the data collected.

On Thursday 25th April we would like to welcome parents/carers to our ‘Learning Showcase’. This is a child-led experience where the children will be showing some of the learning that has taken place in our class and completing some activities with you. This event will be from 1:40-2:40 and we look forward to seeing you then.

Welcome Back to Room 4

It has been lovely welcoming all the boys and girls back to room 4 after the holidays and hearing all about what they got up to.  I swear they have all grown over the holidays, and I enjoyed seeing how far they have come since they started Primary 1 back in August. I can’t wait to see where their learning journey takes them before the summer.

This week for our blog, I wanted to provide a snapshot of the classroom to give you an insight of what happens in the class. The photos below were taken on Thursday morning as I walked around the room.

As you can see, the boys and girls were so involved in their learning they had no idea I was taking their photo. I couldn’t be prouder of everyone in the class and how they were leading their own learning journey!

I hope this afternoon’s sunshine is a sign of more things to come. As the weather warms up, a wee reminder that even though it might be sunny outside, the P1 playground is pretty shaded so can stay chilly all day.

Have a lovely weekend.

Room 9 Direct Speech

We have all enjoyed being back at school this week. Mr Allen said it was great having everyone back in class.

In literacy this week, we were learning about how to use Direct speech. It was very tricky at first but by the end of the week we all really understood what to do. The first thing that we need to do is separate the talking part and the unspoken part of a sentence, we use a comma to do this. Then we put the inverted commas around the spoken part using marks that we called 66 and 99 because that is what the punctuation marks look like. Instead of writing in our jotters, Mr Allen got us to act out the situation using printed words and punctuation marks. The photographs below shows what we did.


Mr Allen was so impressed with our progress, we got to share our learning with the P3s and P4s during our assembly this week. We also used direct speech in our story writing.

Good afternoon everyone,

This week we have been learning all about time. We talked about how time passes from days to months to years. We then looked at how to tell the time.

OC “We used an analogue clock”

KH ” The little hand is the hours”

WMcC ” The big hand is the minutes hand.

CMCI ” When the minute hand is on the 12 and the hours hand is on the 6 it is 6 o’clock”

LW “24 hours in a day”

Please have a look at our learning below.

Have a lovely weekend!

Thank you
