Today should have been the start of the Big Pedal walking/cycling/scooting national competition that we all enjoy so much each year.
This year we’re turning it into the Bishopton Pedal.
As part of your daily exercise, we would like you to try to cycle, scoot or walk every day for the next 2 weeks. Please make sure that bikes and scooters are safe for you to use and that you wear helmets on your bike just as you would if you were at school. If you do not have access to a safe place to cycle, scoot or walk please just carry on with all the other daily fitness ideas provided by your teachers.
Remember all your family are welcome to join in too.
Be safe and have fun.
Just a wee insight into the home learning in P1 during the 1st 2 weeks away from school. A big thank you to all of the parents, carers and siblings who supported during this time,
We hope you are enjoying a well earned break until we do it all again.
Tomorrow we begin a new journey together… learning at home! To help with this I will be posting a copy of our weekly timetable on our Class Team page. This way you will be able to see what is coming up over the course of the week.
Each morning I will set daily assignments for you to complete. It is entirely up to you when these are completed throughout the day and in what order. Some of the tasks will be active whereas others will be written. The completed written tasks can be returned to us by attaching them to the original assignment. Please click here for details on how to complete this. Also, if you were in school last week, a blue jotter was sent home. Tasks may also be completed in this. Remember, I will be available to help, if needed, so please use the chat facility on our Team page. You may also email me if you would prefer. I will be online from 9.00am.
Every day, I would like all of you to ‘check-in’ with me by posting a reply to the ‘register’ which will be posted on our Class Team page each morning. I will say ‘Good Morning P1C’ and you can let me know you have read it at some point throughout the day by replying with a ‘hi’ or hello’.
I am hoping that someone at home can send me photos, or videos, of you and your work, so I can see what you are getting up to.
Above all, please don’t worry about this next step in your child’s learning. I am here to help in any way that we can.
Please continue to revise our sounds and the sight words on your child’s word walls. On Friday, your child was given an extra word wall for when they have completed their current one. If your child was off I will email you a copy over the next few days. Tasks will be set each week relating to our new sounds/words however revision of all sounds and words would also be beneficial.
As always, any questions please ask.
Primary 1C had a brilliant day yesterday. We had a movie morning with P1-P3, a special golden time, our P7 buddies then surprised us and we got to sign their shirts! We then finished with Read and Munch.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to say I’ve had a great time teaching P1C! What an amazing first year in school they’ve had and they’ve been an absolute joy to teach. They all worked incredibly hard and I am so proud to have watched them grow in confidence. I have enjoyed getting to know them and thank them for their happy smiles and making me laugh everyday.
I will be online from 9am every weekday posting tasks and activities for your child. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Thank you all for your continued support and kind words yesterday. Stay safe and I hope to see you all soon.
Just to let you know that all of the assignments for today’s self-isolating children have been posted on the class teams. You should log onto Glow, use the Microsoft Teams tab and then your specific class tab. All assignments should then be available to you. If you are having issues accessing them, please let me know and I will try to help: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you haven’t already done so, please help the children to log on to Glow and post a message (This is the Scottish Schools National Intranet, you can find it by searching Glow in Google.) This will allow me to check that everyone can access Glow at home. Further details can be found here. The children have been shown how to access Microsoft Teams, which is the app shown first on the Bishopton Apps List.
If you have any questions about this or require another copy of your child’s user name or password just let me know.
Good news ! The Big Pedal cycling, scooting and walking challenge is back. From Wednesday 22nd April to Tuesday 5th May we would like you to bring your bike or scooter to school every day. You will get the chance to bike or scoot with your classmates and your teacher. If you can’t bring a bike or scooter, you can walk and that will count too. For more information have a look at the Big Pedal website.
This is a national competition to see how many journeys we can make biking, scooting or walking. Please ask an adult to check that your bike or scooter is in good working order. You may bring a lock to use but you must be responsible for the key.
Rules – all cyclists MUST wear a helmet
– no cycling or scooting in the playground ( or the ashy path) unless you are with your teacher (on the way in/out, playtime and lunchtime)
We have taken part in this challenge for the last few years and it is always good fun. We are usually in the top 10. Let’s try for top 3 this year!
I hope you are having a lovely weekend.
Reading – your child has been issued with a new reading book. Please read this with your child and encourage them to sound out words (if applicable) and use reading strategies such as looking at the pictures.
Can I please ask that reading books are kept in book bags to allow me to go over these with your child.
Reading for enjoyment – Your child has chosen a new book to read for enjoyment. Please continue to use the 3 sharings to discuss the story.

Good afternoon, I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
Sounds: Sound cards for “er” and “ar” have been added to the book bags. Please continue to practise all of the sounds and actions. These should be looked over as often as possible at home.
