P1 Home Learning


We hope you are all keeping well and have had a lovely Christmas holiday at home. As we move to virtual teaching for a while, we just wanted to give you a little heads up of what to expect over the coming weeks.

Weekly Timetable

We plan to try and keep our days as close to a regular school day as possible; however, we are aware that every family’s circumstances will be different, so please don’t worry about completing all activities within a given day at a specific time. All we ask is that you try your best and we will be here to support you, and your grown-ups, as and when needed throughout the school day. 😊

We will upload a weekly overview every Sunday on Teams and the blog. This will let you see what learning is planned for the week ahead and will hopefully help you plan your days to suit your needs.

Daily Assignments, Teaching and Tasks

Your individual assignments for that day will be posted at 8.30 am. These assignments will have a closing date set for one month, so you can hand in assignments late up until this date.

We will be delivering learning in a variety of different ways. These include recorded PowerPoints, videos, links to enhance lessons and so on. Please attach your work, as and when appropriate, to each individual assignment, to allow us to give you feedback directly. If you are having any problems with this, please email and let us know.

We will post any other suggested tasks, which are linked and relevant to our weekly planner, directly onto our Teams page.

Play

A huge part of our day in Primary 1 is learning through play. Please remember to schedule lots of time to do this whether that be playing with your toys, creating games, using ICT. . . it’s all relevant! Keep an eye on the File called ‘Ideas To Keep Busy At Home’ which we will update with documents and websites to give you suggestions of things to do indoors.

Morning Fitness and Daily Registration Posts

We plan to start each morning with a suggested fitness post. These links will be posted before 9am to allow you to engage with the live Joe Wick’s lessons at 9 am on certain days if you wish.

We will then post our registration post at 9.30 am each day where we ask you to say hi to us to check in and allow us to complete our required register for that day. Please note that you may reply to this post at any point throughout the day.

Live Daily Check-In

During the first lockdown in March, we enjoyed our successful live check-ins with our class. We, therefore, plan to do this again and we hope to bring everyone (who is available) together online at some point each day. More information about these will be provided on your Team page on Monday.

We hope that this information has been useful. Please remember to not worry or stress about anything. We are all in this together and we welcome feedback to help make this process as smooth and as easy as possible.

We look forward to speaking with you on Monday.

Stay Safe!

Primary 1 Teachers.

Scottish Book Week – Primary 1C

P1C have had a busy week in class celebrating Scottish Book Week and our love of reading.

Each day, we have had a voting station where the children were given the opportunity to vote for what book they wanted me to read.

We enjoyed our read & munch session. Today we met virtually with our P7 buddies and enjoyed listening to a story read by them.

During our topic maths lesson, we were learning about pictograms and managed to link it into Scottish Book Week. We collected data on our favourite books and created a class pictogram.

Finally, we loved reading the story “Little Penguin Lost” and created our very own Plip the penguin 🐧❤️.

I hope you enjoy looking at the photos of how busy we have been this week ⭐️
