P1M/W – Week Beginning 1st December 2020

Good afternoon,

December is here and we have a busy few weeks ahead in Primary 1M/W. We had a lovely day on Friday and we have lots more festive fun planned. I’ll try to give you a brief summary of what’s to come over the next few weeks and keep you updated.

Firstly, in December, homework will be reduced slightly. This is to allow more time to practise nativity parts and to enjoy Christmassy things at home.

P1M/W: Christmas Art Day

Good afternoon,

What a busy day we have had in P1M/W. We started the morning by putting up our class Christmas tree and decorating it. We enjoyed exploring some Christmas activities and playing with our new artic snow tuff tray and the Christmas Cafe role play area.

As part of our Art Day fun we created a display to say thank you to some of the Key workers. We focussed on the Emergency Services in Primary 1. P1M/W made a life sized police man by drawing round a child and we used paint to decorate a police car. Individually we created Christmas cards, decorations and mini police cars to go on our display. We made a big mess but we had lots of fun.

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Wilson & Miss Murray

Here is a picture of our fantastic display – Thank you to all keyworkers.

Reminders – Friday 27th November

Friday 27th November is our House Art Day and we are looking forward to taking part in lots of fun activities. Please send your child in old clothes as it can get messy!

The rehearsals for the nativity show are going very well. Please keep practicing lines at home – thank you for all your help with this.

Just a reminder to bring back both reading books and picture books for enjoyment tomorrow please.

Finally, we are outstanding some option forms for the School Christmas lunch on Thursday 10th December – please return these as soon as possible.

Many thanks,

Miss Murray & Miss Wilson

P1M/W – Nativity

Good afternoon,

Please look out for a letter in your child’s bag today detailing your child’s nativity part. The letter details their lines for the play. If possible could you help your child to practise their line. We will be practising lots over the next few weeks in class but it is helpful if they can commit their line to memory. Little and often works best for this.

We have also listed items that would be useful for your child’s costume. We are in the process of allocating costumes, however it is useful to have the basic’s listed for them to wear underneath. Please do not buy anything new, if there is anything you do not have at home please let us know. We would ask that these are please sent in no later than Friday 4th of December to allow us to quarantine items as necessary. Please ensure that anything sent in is in a plastic bag clearly labelled with your child’s name. We are also looking for a baby doll (to be used as Jesus) – if you have something suitable and would be willing to lend it to us we would be most grateful.

All nativity related activities will be modified to follow current COVID-19 guidelines. Nonetheless, we can’t wait for the festivities begin. It’s such a lovely time of year for the children. If you have any questions at all, please do get in touch.

Many Thanks,

Miss Wilson & Miss Murray

P1M & P1W – Children in Need 2020

Good evening,

We have had a wonderful day celebrating Children in Need 2020. We enjoyed lots of ‘Pudsey’ themed activities. We learned about what Children in Need charities do and thought a little about how we can help others who may be less fortunate than ourselves.

This morning we enjoyed Pudsey themed activities in our play. Some of us chose to make masks or to decorate Pudsey bandanas using paint. Miss Murray and Miss Wilson made a big Pudsey face on our tuff tray for us to enjoy.

This afternoon, we learned about money and counted some pennies. We listened to a story about Pudsey’s Bake Sale and counted how much each cake costed. We also completed a Bake Sale themed cut and stick. For gym today, we did a CIN themed workout. It was really tiring.

At the end of the day, we read a Children in Need story and listened to the CIN choir singing a lovely song.

We have had a super busy day. Thank you to everyone who dressed up and donated some money to Children in Need. Have a lovely weekend.

Miss Murray & Miss Wilson
