Primary 1


We can’t believe it’s the last week of term! What a busy term we’ve had! A big thank you to all the People Who Help Us visitors, we have learned so much about different jobs in the community. The weather is changing so please remember to bring coats every day. All the photographs, models and pictures of homework activities from the homework menus have been fantastic and it’s been a great opportunity for children to share their learning. Look out for the new homework menus in Term 2.

Happy holidays!



Today we had a whole school growth mindset day. Our day started off with an Assembly with Scott from Live – N – Learn and we learned lots about growth mindset. Then we explored the different parts of the brain and the jobs they do. We then took part in a relaxation class based on the Jungle Book story and songs. We learned about mindfulness colouring and the benefits of it. We finished our day off with helping ‘Gerald the giraffe’ change his fixed mindset and realise that he can dance if he practises and gets help from his jungle friends!



We were delighted to welcome so many P1 parents to our open afternoon. Primary 1 pupils were busy solving jigsaw puzzles and enjoyed showing our parents the new classroom charter and displays. This afternoon we were learning about mime in Drama. We had to use mime to demonstrate the movements of a bus driver and doctor. We shared some creative ideas with our partners in Drama.




We LOVED our visit from the Amber Watch on Thursday. We had so many questions for them and we learned about their job, the fire engine and making 999 calls. We are looking forward to a visit from a Doctor tomorrow and Physiotherapist on Friday.



A big thank you to all who have sent in P1 homework photos. P1 pupils have confidently talked about their learning and the photos. Keep them coming! We love sharing our learning.

We are looking forward to the visit from the Fire Brigade on Thursday afternoon. We have lots of questions for them to answer.


We have stayed at school for two full days so far and it’s great! We get to stay for lunch and then play outside with all the other boys and girls.  We have started to learn about patterns and we can’t wait to share our learning with our P7 buddies on Friday. Tomorrow we have a visit from our local postman as part of our People who help us topic. We have lots of questions for him. Look out for photos on Twitter.



We have been very busy in P1; learning new sounds, reading books, practising number formations and lots more! Last Friday we had our first P.E. lesson with Miss Warren and we played lots of games and developed our balancing skills.  This morning we have been learning how to write a number 3 … “a curl for you, a curl for me, that’s the way to make a 3!” Keep practising at home. Primary 7 have been helping us with our learning and we are looking forward to finding out who are buddies are.
