We hope you are having a lovely weekend. Homework for this week and reminders are below:
This week is a revision week. Please continue to practise the sounds taught so far. You could spend some time playing on Literacy Planet.
We learned two new sight words – ‘these’ and ‘so’. Word Walls have been checked and focus words highlighted – these will be sent home on Monday or Tuesday, to be retuned to school on Friday. Please return your word wall to school tomorrow if you didn’t manage to hand it in last week. Remember to practice saying each word in a sentence. It’s a good idea to go back over the words you have already learned.
A new reading book will be issued on Monday – please read this with someone at home. Please return books to school on Friday 14th May to allow us to quarantine these ready for the following week.
NUMERACY & MATHS
We have been focusing on counting back within a given number range. Choose a number range that is suitable for your child and ask them to count back. E.g Count back from 12 and stop at 6.
- Read & Munch will be on Thursday. You may bring in a favourite book from home to read in class and a healthy snack.
- School lunches and menu information can be found here.
- We will be getting a class photograph on Thursday 13th May. Please wear a white shirt and tie on this day. If you require a school tie, there is a small collection in school that can be borrowed. Please let me know before Thursday if you need to borrow a tie.
- A letter was sent home last week with information on the virtual end of term concert. Please continue to practise our class song at home. Everything you need can be found in the files tab on Teams. If you have any questions about this, please get in touch. More information can be found here.
- Please remember to let us know in advance of any changes to pick up arrangements at the end of the day.
As always, if you have any questions please get in touch.

What a busy week we have had in P1C. I am very impressed with how well the children now know our daily routines.
I will be revising all 6 sounds (s, a, t, p, i and n) in class. Please continue to practise these at home using the flash cards.
Your child has been given a new picture book. Please enjoy reading this with them and continue using the three sharings.
Please choose a new activity to do and date once completed.
. Our gym days are a Monday and Wednesday.
. Read and Munch is on a Friday.
. Only water can be drunk in class.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Can you believe it is the end of Primary 1. The time has flown by. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your continued support throughout the year.
Helping the children grow and learn is a great privilege. I have enjoyed teaching the children of Primary 1 E 2018/19. We have had a busy fun packed year from making a carriage for Cinderella, to building water gauges to catch rainfall. It has been wonderful to work with your children.
I hope you all have a fantastic summer! I wish all the children the best for Primary 2.
Heartstart Homework – children should complete the postcard in their bookbag. Please help them to complete their name and address and return to school by Friday 21st June.
Thank you for your co-operation.
Hello everyone, I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
We were having some trouble with our blog site but that’s it up and running now – sorry for the delay.
This week’s homework is as follows
The next page in the maths booklet.
You can also use some online addition and subtraction games from topmarks. Link below.
The children have chosen new library books for choice. This book is to encourage enjoyment of reading.
Please continue to go over your child’s reading book with them. Wordwalls/flashcards are also in book bags this week.
Have a wonderful week. As always, if you have any questions please feel free to ask.
Homework this week
Maths – choose one of the activities dotted on the maths sheet
Sounds – new sounds qu and ou. These are tricky new sounds so try your best to learn them! Please continue to practise all sounds and maybe make up some words with them.
Wordwalls – continue with the highlighted words
Reading book – your child has a new reading book. It is really important to try to hear reading each night and to use the Three Sharings.
Could we please ask that you check your child’s bookbag every night? We check them every morning and we are finding important letters and invitations to parties which have not been seen. Please remove anything you feel is no longer relevant.
A huge thank you to everyone who worked so hard on their Scottish Poems, (including parents!) . The children were an absolute credit to you and as part of the Curriculum, performing in front of an audience can be daunting but it is a great skill to learn and they made us very proud with the confidence they displayed. Well done everyone!
Next Wednesday is Global Play Day. The children can bring in a toy/game from home but as previously indicated, it cannot be battery operated or electronic. We will be going outside to play, weather permitting, so please ensure your child comes to school with warm coats, hats, scarves and gloves. We are really looking forward to this!
As always, any questions, please ask.
Mrs Campbell and Miss Cuthill
this week the homework is as follows
Maths – I have dotted with red pen a few more bricks that you can choose from over the following weeks.
Language – the new sounds have been put into their bags. Along with their word walls, some children may have new words.
Reading – the children have selected new books. As usual a wee read some chat. The three sharings bookmark is there to help with the chat.
Any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Hello P1E parents,
Yesterday I introduced the children’s word walls to them. I explained to the children how they work and how we will use them in class. On the word walls you will see some words have dots (some may also have ticks but that is only for my reference), the words with dots are the words which the children should practise at home.
At home there are many different things you can do, look at the words in random order, find them in books or use them in oral sentences. These are only a few suggestions, the main aspect of this is to reinforce the words for the children to recognise them.
At the point where your child is confident with the words they will be highlighted green by myself. This is when you can focus on the other words. There will be more words added throughout the progression of the word wall.
Reading – Please continue to discuss the three sharings with your child when reading the book. You can also mention your own dislikes/likes or what connections or puzzles you have in relation to the story.
There are no new sound cards in the book bags as last week was a revision week. Please continue with the ones you have.
If there are any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch.
