Thursday 25.6.20 – Primary 1


Good Morning Primary 1 and welcome to our final Thumbs Up Thursday  together!

Yesterday I went into school to see your Primary 7 buddies.  They had a lovely (socially distanced) day with quizzes, memories and pizza!  Although they are happy to move on, they were a little sad that they could not see you in school.  However they wanted to say a great big “Thank You” to all of you who completed the secret mission task which they received in their Goodbye pack.  Well done Primary 1!

I also had a very lovely surprise when I went into the classroom:

I would like to say a great big “Thank You” for my wonderful rainbow poster which is now hanging in my front hallway – What a wonderful memory of you all.  Thank you also for the other wonder gifts and cards that had been left for me – you have been very generous!

Here are your learning tasks for today:

After the Summer holidays you will be moving into Primary 2. Luckily, Miss Hocking knows you all very well as she did lots of outdoor learning with you this year.  She has made a separate post with a message for you and it might be nice to tell her some things about you.  Some suggestions include:

Or you could make your own apple introduction card using this template  Apple-Pattern

What did you like in our Primary 1 classroom? 

What are you looking forward to in Primary 2?

Do you have any questions for Miss Hocking?

Draw your own self portrait.  Remember to add as much detail as possible – You might have changed a bit since Miss Hocking last saw you.  Below is a frame that you could draw your picture on if you wish:

  • Feeling worried – Some people might be feeling a bit worried about returning to school – and that is ok!  In school we talked a lot about worries and read this story:

Remember it is very important to talk about your worries if you have any.  Below are some links to an activity that could be done at home.  This will help to share your worries with your parents/carers and can also be shared with Miss Hocking and myself.

Please feel free to take your time to complete these tasks over the Summer when you have time.  You can send them to the school office for Miss Hocking (or to myself) or bring them with you when you start P2

Finally I know that some of you will be collecting your school reports tomorrow – Please also look out for a special minibeast kit that I have made for you – I hope that you enjoy it!

See you soon
