Welcome to all of the children in Primary 1 beginning their new adventure at our school. They have all settled in well and are enjoying learning new exciting things across the curriculum. We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the wonderful Primary 7 buddies who have helped the children adapt to their new school routines. The children have loved having the opportunity to play and read with their buddies. The children will continue to read with their buddies on Friday mornings in the classroom.
This week the Primary 1 children have been learning about the Rainbow Fish and the underwater world through play and group activities across all three classrooms. They have created fish, scales, starfish and jellyfish using a range of materials and have discussed the key themes within the book.
In maths the children have been exploring number through counting games and songs. They have been using resources to describe quantities and order.
Primary 1 have also been exploring Unicef’s Rights of the Child and have discussed their rights and responsibilities as members of the school. The children have had the opportunity to use mixed media to create portraits for the class charter and have been working closely on pencil control and creating shapes. They have also created drawings of their personal achievements for a new display in our gym hall.
We would like to say thank you to all of the parents and carers who were able to make it along to our Meet the Teacher event. It was a pleasure to see you all and share how well the children have settled into Primary 1.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Miss Daun, Miss Christy and Mrs Steel.
A friendly reminder that the children have P.E. on a Monday and should remember to bring their labelled gym kit along with them.
