Primary 1 Highlights

We have had another busy week in Primary 1 as we have been learning about the and sound. We have been practising how to write numbers 1-3 and we took part in some ordering and counting activities.

On Thursday we sang some songs about colours and did some finger painting to make rainbow pictures.

We were also very excited to take home our beanstalks which we planted last week. We have learned how to plant seeds in soil and what plants need to grow. Feel free to send in updates on your beanstalk!

Finally, we are looking forward to welcoming families on Thursday 12th September to our Open Afternoon which takes place from 2.45-3.25. See you then!

Harvesting food!

We have been harvesting food from our garden this week.  So far we have got 2 different types of potatoes and beetroot!

We have been keeping an eye on our apples on our apple tree and our tomatoes and they are both nearly ready too!


Please help yourselves to these foods in our cloakroom to take home, we would love to see any pictures of you cooking or eating them!




Award Success in P1!

Last week we enjoyed our first school assembly. We listened well and enjoyed taking part in some of the songs. Both P1 classes received special certificates from Mrs Wilson to congratulate them on their fantastic start to school life at Kingsland. Keep it up everyone!

Traditional Tales in Primary 1

Over the past few weeks we have enjoyed exploring traditional tales such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Today we heard the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff and made predictions about what would happen next.

Afterwards, the children had the option of making a scary troll mask or goat mask. The children listened well and developed their cutting skills too.

ELC settling in

We have had a busy first couple of weeks in ELC settling into our new routines and rules.

Lots of changes have happened over the summer in our ELC, with a new cloakroom area, a covered outdoor area and now some children stay all day in ELC and have lunch.

We have also welcomed new staff members in ELC, please come and say hello!

This term we are also learning about Nursery Rhymes. Mrs Ramage used the “talking tub” to find out what Nursery Rhymes we already know and what ones we would like to sing.


Please leave a comment on our posts and share photos with your child, we love to hear your views!




Week One in Primary 1

We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new Primary 1s and families. We have been delighted with how well the children have already started to pick up our daily routines and have managed well in the lunch hall. We have had a busy week exploring the classroom, playing in our outdoor areas and have enjoyed sharing stories and songs together.

We will update our blog regularly so please visit from time to time to see what we have been up to.

Primary 1 Junk Model Street

Primary 1 had lots of fun on Friday designing, building and decorating their junk model buildings. The children had some super ideas and made houses, hotels, hospitals, police stations and shops. They had to be creative and use their problem solving skills as they worked out how to attach the boxes securely to each other.

Then we put the buildings together to make a street. We enjoyed walking down the street. Can you spot yours?

Primary 1 Beltane Rosettes

This morning, the Primary 1s worked with the Primary 7s to make wonderful Beltane Rosettes to wear for the Beltane lunch.

The children demonstrated some great team work as they worked together to follow the instructions, practise their cutting skills and share resources.

We look forward to wearing our badges with pride on Thursday. Hooray!


Muddy Mondays

Our Muddy Mondays fun has continued the last few weeks with visit both to Hay lodge park and to Peebles CAN.


The children did really well walking to both these places, a big thank you to all the parent helpers – we could do these things without you!


Remember to bring your teddy bear for our teddy bears picnic next Monday!
