Primary 1 – week beginning 10 September 2018

We have had a busy week in Primary 1! We have learnt the sounds ‘p’ and ‘n’ and are developing our understanding of words that have these sounds in them. We have been practising the correct formation of these sounds and have heard lots of stories about children practising them at home too – well done! Please refer to the sheet at the front of the yellow homework book for correct formation. It is very important to get it right at this early stage before habits are formed.

In maths we have been exploring numbers to 10, specifically focusing on 7 and 8. We have used our fingers, ten frames and rekenreks to develop a secure understanding of each number. Some of us are even able to split the number into two sets.

We have begun our consultative planning and the children’s interest has led us onto healthy and unhealthy foods, our likes and dislikes and exploring where clean water comes from. We look forward to doing a tasting session next week! We have been using our clas floorbooks to note down ideas and the teachers use these to identify gaps in our learning and take these interests forward.



Thank you to those who returned the homework sheet regarding the blog. An overwhelming amount of parents/carers have requested a hard copy and therefore we have decided to provide a hard copy for all, as well as posting the homework on the blog fortnightly.


  • Please ensure your child’s Reading book and blue log come into school daily. We have purchased new reading bags for the children and these will be gifted at our open event (see below)
  • Our open afternoon is on Thursday 27 September at 2.15pm and our open morning is on Friday 28 September at 9.00am. You are only asked to attend one session as both are the same. We are doing it on two separate occasions to try and account for working patterns.
  • We will be beginning to change into our gym kit for gym. Please ensure your child brings their kit on a Monday.
