Christmas Jumper Day

A wee reminder that tomorrow (Friday) is Christmas Jumper Day. The children may come to school in their Christmas jumper/top. Please note this is a non-uniform event.  A donation of £1.00 is suggested. All monies raised will go to the Save the Children organisation. If the children are not taking part, they should come to school in school uniform as normal.

Primary 1 Christmas Party

Good morning,

Next Friday morning (20th of December) is our P1 Christmas Party. Children are welcome to come dressed in their party clothes. They are welcome to wear whatever they feel most comfortable in, for example party dress or a Christmas jumper. As it is an early release, children will not need to change into their school uniform and can stay in their party clothes during the school day.

Hopefully we will have a special visitor!

Many thanks,

Primary 1 Teachers.

P1C Pupil Profiles

Good afternoon,

I have sent out your child’s learning journey via email today. If you have not received this your child has a little slip of paper in their book bag asking for an email address (if this is a problem I will provide you with a paper copy).

I hope you enjoy looking at the progress your child has made in Primary 1 so far.

P1C Nativity Clothes

Good morning,

A note with what clothes your child will require for our nativity show was put in their book bag yesterday. These don’t need to be in until Monday 16th December. Can I ask that any clothes are put in a bag with your child’s name clearly labelled.

Any problems at all please let me know.

Thanks for all your help!

P1C – Week Beginning 9.12.19

Good evening,

I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Pupil Profiles

I will be emailing you a copy of your child’s pupil profile this week. I hope you enjoy looking at what your child has been learning in Primary 1 so far. If I don’t have a copy of your email address, I will try and catch you in the morning or at the end of the day tomorrow.

Nativity

All children will receive a note in their book bags this week confirming the clothes that I kindly ask you to provide for our Nativity performance. I have also written a generic list below for your convenience. Please note that I am not expecting anyone to buy anything new so please let me know if you have any problems sourcing anything. Most children can wear their indoor black plimsoles that are in school already unless stated. All clothes should be sent into school, in a bag labelled with your child’s name, no later than Friday 13th please. Thank you!

P1C Costumes:

Sam, Samantha (Jeans or denim skirt/dress and a checked shirt. Any shoes will be fine but as we are going with a country/western theme, if you have any boots, that would be great.)

Shrews (grey leggings/trousers, grey t-shirt/top.)

Innkeeper (Shorts and t-shirt)

Angels (white vest top and white shoes)

Gabriel (shorts)

3 Kings (shorts and white vest or t-shirt)

Reminders

  • Christmas Jumper Day is on Friday of this week.  If your child wishes to take part, they may wear a Christmas jumper / top to school, otherwise school uniform should be worn as normal.  A small donation of £1.00 will be collected for the Save the Children organisation.

P1C – W/B 2.12.19

Good afternoon,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I enjoyed hearing what the children got up to during our check in this morning.

Homework for this week:

Sounds

New sound cards have been issued for ‘z’ and ‘w’. Please also continue to practise all previously issued sounds.

Word Walls

Please work on the highlighted words in pink.  Children need to learn to read these sight words and understand the meaning by putting the word into the appropriate context in an oral sentence.   I will highlight these words in green when your child shows confidence in using the words correctly in an oral sentence.

Reading

New reading books were issued today. Please continue to encourage your child to use the pictures when discussing the story.

Your child also chose a new picture book to read for enjoyment. Please continue to use the Three Sharings when discussing the story.

Maths

Please complete the number four page only this week. Please don’t worry if your child did not manage number three last week.

Nativity

We had our first full rehearsal today on the stage. I am impressed with how well the children know their lines already. It would be useful to continue to practise these at home.

Reminders

  • PE will be on Wednesday this week.
  • Read & munch will be on Friday.  Children can bring in a book from home and healthy snack.
  • All Hawks have a non-uniform day on Friday as a reward for gaining the most house points over the last 4 weeks. They may come to school in their own clothes.
  • Our Christmas Fayre is on Saturday. Please come along and support both the school and the Parent Council who have arranged this event. Your child has made a craft which will be on sale at the fayre.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask.
