Message for Primary 1⭐ Mrs McPherson the Primary 7 teacher is putting together a video for the Primary 7’s that are leaving Bargarran soon. She has asked if the Primary 1’s who had a P7 buddy at the start of school would like to record a little video message for their buddy? Ideas of what you might like to include would be: a thank you message, tell us something they helped you with or something you enjoyed doing together and then wishing them good luck at high school. If you would like to take part (we would be very grateful) could you please send your completed video to me by this Friday. You can post it here or start a private teams chat with me and send it there 🙂 Thank you in advance for your help and support! 🤝

How Can You Help Your Child at Home?

Read with  your child each day using their reading strategies bookmark, knowledge of phonics and tricky words to support. At the start ask them to make a prediction about what they think might happen in the story. At the end get them to summarise some key events from the book. You can also play a game of word finder. You tell them a word from the book and they have to see how fast they can find it!

The children are also able to discuss the ‘3 Sharings’.

Likes and dislikes about the story, puzzles (things or events they don’t understand) and connections to their own experiences or feelings.

Continue to reinforce correct  letter (lower and uppercase) and number formation.

Continue to count daily up to 100 and down again. Count in 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s for an extra challenge!

All children were learning how to tell o’clock times on an analogue and digital clock.

Revise all single and double sounds taught this year. Use your cards to make up 3, 4 and 5 letter words. Jolly Phonics songs can be found on YouTube. Continue to learn your tricky words as well.

Write stories or news. Write recipe books, shopping lists or lists of jobs you can help with around the house or garden. Make cards to give to your family or post to people you can’t see just now. Try your best to sound out the words and get help with the tricky ones.

Revise adding and subtracting up to 10 or 20 if you want an extra challenge. Learn all the different number stories within 10 off by heart. Remember the Spiderman Switch!

Remember children learn a lot of skills through their daily play:
