In maths, we have been learning more about numbers this week and went on a number hunt around school.

Isla – “I liked when we were number spies looking for all the numbers.”

Emma – “I spotted number 7.”

Georgia – “I liked hunting for numbers.”

Luca – “We found lots of numbers in school. I found number 1.”

Every Friday, we have show and tell. This week it was the Floppy table’s turn.

Logan – “I liked showing my trophy.”

Marie – “I made a book and everyone said they liked it.”

We are looking forward to hearing from the Scooby-Doo table next week.

P1C News


This week we were learning the sounds ‘s’ and ‘p’.

“Strawberry starts with s”- Stevie

“Pickle starts with p” – Struan

In maths, Ted, Julia, Agata, Stuart, Sam Alyssa, and Alexander were brilliant at making number snakes with dominoes. Lily and Rudy were counting with the houses. Rudy said it was ‘good’.

Stuart remembers doing our handprints. We are going to make a tree for our classroom with them!

We had fun doing yoga! Ted said.

Have a good holiday.

Fruit Investigation

Good Morning, and welcome

We have been really busy looking at decomposing fruit and recording comments and discussions in the relevant Fruit Floor Book (Please, everyone is more than welcome to view and contribute to each and every floor book). They have been learning about mould and decomposition and linking these with composting and how “smelly” and “yukky” the fruit looked and smelled.



If you are grocery shopping this weekend you could take your child along and show them ‘nice’ fruit and any ‘rotting/bruised’ fruit and talk to your child about the differences. Perhaps together you can build your own compost bin at home and continue discussing changes.

Children have continued to explore the sensory table where they are using language to describe what they touch, see, hear, taste and smell.

Also when you come into the nursery, have a look at the Numeracy board on your way out (in the snack room). Children have created fantastic apple trees, using our own trees outside as inspiration. They have added and counted the apples on their trees.

We have had kittens! Children are excited to play with mother cat and her three kittens in the house corner and have been looking after them by feeding them regularly and making sure they have lots of naps through the day.

Please remember children have a long weekend and will return on Wednesday 21st September.

Primary 1 – Room 12

Room 12 are delighted to have their Blog up and running!

What a great start to Primary 1 we have had. Mrs MacCallum is greeted every morning by a line of smiles and is pleased to say everyone is settling in well.

As part of our phonics we have enjoyed a range of activities to help us learn new sounds. Some of these activities can be seen in the pictures below.  A new game we’ve enjoyed is ‘pass the sound’, which involves a DJ who is responsible for starting and stopping the music.

Math’s activities have been just as much fun. We have been reciting number songs and rhymes, counting objects and matching these to the correct number symbol.

We hope this has been a good insight into our learning in Primary 1 and we look forward to uploading another blog soon
