Good evening,

Just a note to let you know that Mrs O’Neill and I plan to continue to use Teams as our main form of communication. Please refer to your class Teams page for up-to-date information about each class. This will include information about weekly homework tasks which we will set as assignments, and they will go live every Monday morning.

As always, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if we can help you with anything. 🙂

We hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Homework starts this week, and here is an overview:

SOUNDS          The 10 Best Ways to Help Kids Learn Phonics (Activities to Help Your Child Learn to Read!) | How to Learn

We learned the sounds ‘qu’ and ‘ou’ this week – we have added these to the sounds folder within your class Teams page. Please complete the ‘qu’ and ‘ou’ missions that have been assigned to you on Literacy Planet – click here. You will need the log in details emailed to your Glow email address. If you would like added challenge, please draw a picture of a word that contains our 2 new sounds, and try to write the word below.


We learned two new sight words – ‘which’ and ‘she’ These have been added to our flashcards folder on Teams. Please choose a sight word activity from the new Common Word grid on Teams, within the Sight Words folder.  Please continue to practise all sight words taught to date.

We will be reviewing word walls this week and paper copies of these will be getting sent home Mon 15th March. Further details of this will be issued nearer the time.

For additional practice, please feel free to play the time games by clicking here. The code to access the games is LQ8612.


  • Our outdoor sessions will be on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday – please ensure your child has warm and waterproof clothing on these days. It might be helpful to keep a spare pair of socks in school bags, to help with wet feet on rainy days.
  • We encourage children to be as independent as possible in class – please keep practicing zipping up jackets and putting on hats, scarves, gloves, shoes, etc. Your help with this is much appreciated.
  • Read & Munch will be on Thursday. Your child may bring in a favourite book from home to read in class and a healthy snack.
  • On Tuesday of this week Miss Murray and Miss Wilson will both be out of class for our non-class contact time. Mrs Hughes and Miss McFarlane will be covering on these days.
  • School lunches and menu information can be found here.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions.

P1C – W/B 1.3.21

Good afternoon P1C, I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend so far.

We have another busy week ahead that includes World Book Day on Thursday. I do not plan to set any formal homework this week. However, it would be good if you could please continue to practise your sounds, words and numbers. You may also wish to complete any outstanding assignments.


  • We will be outside for PE on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. 
  • We will be having a very special read & munch on Thursday this week for World Book Day. Please bring in your favourite book and a healthy snack to enjoy.
  • Please continue to practise zipping up jackets at home.

As always, if you have any questions, please send me an email.

I am looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

Miss Cuthill


P1M/W: Week Beginning 1/3/21

Good afternoon,

We hope you have had a fantastic weekend, after a busy first week back. We will not be issuing any homework this week as we know families will need some time to adjust to school learning once again. Homework will be issued next week.

We have a busy week ahead with lots of fantastic learning opportunities. There are no new sounds this week however, it would be great if pupils could revise the previously taught sounds/sight words at home. Our focus this week will be on time. We will be learning to identify o’clock times on both analogue and digital clocks. Children will look to share this knowledge at home and it can be helpful to ask children to look at the clock at key points in the routine at home. E.g it’s dinner time – what time is it? it’s 5 o’clock.

Reminders for this week:

  • Please ensure that your child has a bottle of water to keep in class throughout the day. We kindly ask that it is only water and not juice.
  • We have been enjoying lots of time outside this term. Waterproofs should be kept in your child’s school bag. It might be a good idea to keep an extra pair of socks in case of any wet weather.
  • Pupils should continue to practise zipping their coat and getting ready independently. As discussed at the beginning of the term, it can be helpful if pupils wear shoes that they can get on and off. Laces can make it difficult for pupils to change independently.
  • Read and Munch is on Thursday this week. Children can bring a book and a healthy snack to enjoy with their friends.
  • Please ensure that your child does not bring any toys to school. This allows us to comply with COVID-19 mitigations.
  • On Friday we are planning to do some planting. Each child needs 1 yoghurt pot. If possible, could you send a yoghurt pot labelled with your child’s name by Friday 5th March.
  • If you wish your child to wear a paint apron, please provide them with an old shirt or apron to keep in their bag.

Have a fantastic week and as always, if you have any questions or concerns please get in touch.

Miss Wilson & Miss Murray.

P1M & P1W Reminders

Good afternoon,

It is so lovely to have all the boys and girls back in school. We have had such a busy week already and have an exciting term ahead.

Just a  quick reminder that read & munch is tomorrow & children can bring in a book from home and a healthy snack to enjoy, if they wish.

Also, we are continuing to learn outdoors Mon, Wed, Thurs & Fri each week – please ensure children have suitable warm and waterproof clothing and footwear on these days.

Homework will not be issued this week or next week to allow children a chance to settle back into school. We will continue to update you weekly with sounds, sight words and maths topics covered in class each week.

As always, please get in touch if you have any questions.

Miss Murray & Miss Wilson


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.


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.
