P1C and P1S Bookbags

Your child has come home with their homework this week.  This can be completed at any time during the week but we ask that you send your child’s bookbag  into school every day.    We sometimes have additional letters or information to send home during the week.

Kind regards

Hi everyone

We hope you had a lovely weekend.

Just a reminder that we have our P1 information evening on Thursday 24th August at 6.45-7.45pm.

We sent home all bookbags for the first time today. If your child had not handed in a bookbag, we have given them a polypocket for the time being. Please ensure you send your child’s bookbag into school each day. We will send bookbags home every night except a Friday.

Inside the bookbags you will find a yellow homework card that will detail homework for that week. Please initial or sign each week to show us homework has been completed. If you have any comments then you can add them to the card in the space provided.

Homework for this week

Practise and learn jollyphonics sounds (s, a and t) You will find links for the songs below.

We’ve had a great start to primary 1.  The children are getting used to our routines and are already much quicker at ordering their food in the dinner hall.

This week we will start sending the children’s bookbags home.  The children will bring them home every night except Friday.

These will include a yellow homework card which will show homework for the week and a bag of Jolly Phonic sounds to practise with your child. This week’s sounds are – s, a and t.

Please initial or sign the homework card each week. If you have any comments you can add them to the card. Please note – the homework letter will be issued on Thursday.

We look forward to seeing you at the information evening on Thursday 24th August at 6.45 – 7.45.

Thank you

Miss Frew and Mrs Ferguson


We will have our first P.E. lesson on Friday morning.  It would be jogging boy by johnny_automaticgirl playing soccer by johnny_automatichelpful if children could wear polo shirts instead of shirts and ties that day ( and on Tuesdays too for our other P.E. lesson).

Could all children please bring a gym bag  by Friday including a pair of shorts and gym shoes? As always, all items (including bag) should be labelled with your child’s name. It would be helpful if girls with long hair had it tied back for gym lessons.

Thank you for your help with this.

Hi everyone

We had a lovely first day with your children and were very impressed with their enthusiasm. We are excited about what this year will bring.

Just to let you know that our gym days will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Thanks again to everyone who has already handed in gym bags. It would be great if all gymbags could be handed in by the end of the week as we will be starting formal PE lessons next week. Remember a full gym kits consists of a polo shirt, shorts and gym shoes. Please avoid shirt and ties on these days if possible. We would also recommended that all jewellery remains at home on these days.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Welcome to P1!

What a lovely day we’ve had. All children have settled in really well and we can’t wait to get to know them more.

Here are a few hints and tips to help P1 run smoothly.

  • Please ensure snacks for playtime are not placed inside your child’s lunchbox as this confuses them. Pop them in their schoolbag.
  • Please try to limit their morning snack to one item and a drink.
  • Please discuss lunch options with your child the night before so they know if they are an option 1, 2 or 3.
  • If they are a packed lunch or home, please make this clear to your child.
  • We encourage children to drink only water during class time.
  • Please ensure all belongings (including water bottles) are clearly labelled with your child’s name and class.
  • Please ensure that your child knows who is collecting them at the end of the day (parents, grandparents, after school care etc)
  • If attending after school care, please make sure you have informed them of any changes.

Many thanks for those of you who have handed in bookbags and gymbags already. If you have not already done so, please hand them in by the end of the week if possible. We will start to use the bookbags next Monday.

We look forward to seeing you at the parent information evening next Thursday 24th August at 6.45pm – 7.45pm.

Best wishes

P1 Teachers
