Primary 1 – Home Learning 22.06.20

Good morning Primary 1

We hope you all had a lovely weekend and spent time relaxing, playing, having fun and spending time with your family. Can you believe it’s the last week of term before the summer holidays? Where has all of the time gone?

We just wanted to say a huge well done to all of the boys and girls in Primary 1 who took part in the sports day activities! We loved to see all of you working hard, having fun and improving your fitness on the learning journals. It was a huge success!

This week we have created some fun activities for you to complete during this last week before the holidays. There are two home learning grids with fun activities for you to do across the curriculum and some resources to help you with this. Please find the IDL grids below:

Primary 1 Home Learning – 01.06.20

Good morning Primary 1!

What lovely weather we’ve been having! I hope you all had a great weekend with your family and that you all managed to get outside in the sunshine! We definitely are making the most of this fantastic weather. Miss Daun went out for two walks in the Pentlands and enjoyed walking along the Water of Leith. Miss Cunningham enjoyed spending some time in the sunshine and washed her car! Miss Christy went for a 45 mile cycle in the sunshine past lots of arable farms. What a huge achievement! Here are some pictures we captured over the weekend:


This week in literacy, we are looking at ‘oy’ sound, consolidating our understanding of what capital letters looks like and writing instructions for how to plant a seed. The comprehension questions related to our Oxford Owl reading books will be sent via the Learning Journal messages section as usual. Please find all of the literacy resources below:

This week in maths we are revisiting money to consolidate our understanding of what coins look like. We will also be thinking about finding the correct change when paying for an item with 10p. We are also continuing learning about fact families and Miss Christy has prepared a number talks video. Please find the resources below:

We are also continuing our topic of farming and this week we are going to be focusing on arable farming. We have challenged you to draw your own arable farm map, label a flower and create your own poster detailing how to look after a plant. We would also like you to learn some new French words! All of the Interdisciplinary learning activities can be found below:
