A Week in the Life of P1


When we had our learners’ conversation this week, the pupils wanted to talk about absolutely everything that we did this week!  Since it has been a while since we have given you a run-down on our curricular activities, here you go.

Maths:  mental maths counting by 2 and 5/counting and adding within 10 for our written work

Literacy:  alphabet, independent writing from a stimulus and tricky word assessment

RME:  who gave us our name and why

Expressive Arts:  a card for Mrs Martin and continued work on our ‘Beautiful Brollies’

HWB:  designing a healthy breakfast plate/circuits in the gym hall

ICT:  We learned about internet safety from the P3 assembly and the video.

Science:  the forces of push and pull

So, as you can tell, there hasn’t been an idle moment in Primary One this week!  Next week we will begin preparation for our ‘Pollination’ assembly for the school on the 10th of March.  If anyone has a spare bee or beekeeper costume, we would be grateful for the loan of them.

Have a lovely weekend.



Primary 5

This week we have moved on to a new maths topic. The topic is shape.  Some of us  were matching up different shapes to their names. We have also been improving our problem solving skills this week.  By Leah and Aidan

We have been very busy with our Titanic topic.  An activity we really enjoyed this week was creating a Titanic timeline.  We have transformed our classroom so that we feel part of the Titanic, we have portholes and a massive ship on the wall.   We will also be displaying some of the work we have been doing, like our factsheets about Captain Smith.  By Cameron and Ben

In writing we have been writing to persuade.  This week we were writing about fox hunting.  We had to write reasons for and against fox hunting and then give our own opinion about the subject.  Next week we will be writing about who we think is to blame for the Titanic sinking.  By Nur-Aasiya and Amy

A big thank you to our parents

The recent Parent Council purchases for the school have now all been delivered and given out to the children. The Pupil Council (pictured) enjoyed having a look through the resources and then presented them to their class. These resources will help extend the children’s learning across the school in Numeracy and Literacy, as well as having an effect on their Health and Wellbeing and other areas.

The kinds of resources which have been purchased include iPads and a charging / storage station, reading books for all stages across the school, maths and numeracy activities and games, and literacy activities and spelling games.

The fundraising that the Parent Council has been doing has helped pay for these resources, so on behalf of the children in the school, we would like to say a big “Thank You” to the Parent Council for organising these events and for our wider parent body for supporting the fund raising initiatives.
