Primary 1 Update 6.2.19

Hello All,

This week in Primary 1 we have been continuing our learning about Dinosaurs and this weeks focus has been on volcanoes and the Diplodocus. All the classes were very excited to make their own volcano erupt!

Tuesday (5th) was Safer Internet Day and the children discussed what this might mean in basic terms and watched a short video. Also in ICT this week children will be developing their skills in typing with the help of some their P7 buddies.

In Phonics, children are continuing to develop their skills in blending short words and we have also begun to introduce consonant digraphs – this week’s is ‘sh’.

In Health this week the children have been discussing things that are safe to go on their body and as part of this we also discussed trusted adults. We will continue this in future weeks with things that are safe to go in our body.

The focus in Maths this week has been on a variety of types of measurement including length, weight and capacity. The children have enjoyed using non-standard units to measure everyday classroom items as well as dinosaurs!


Parents Night is next Wednesday and Thursday – we look forward to seeing you if you can make it along.

Tempest Photography – in school tomorrow( 7.2.19) for P1 and P7 only class photos.

Thank you for your continuing support,

Primary 1 Teachers
