What another fantastic week we have had in Primary 1! In literacy, we have been learning the sounds ‘b’ and ‘u’ and have been thinking of words that begin with these letters. We have been working closely on forming letters correctly, blending new words containing these letters and have been identifying the sounds on the magnetic boards. This week we were writing about our favourite storybook and why we enjoyed it. Thank you to everyone who shared their favourite story with us on See Saw, it was lovely seeing you talking about your favourite books at home.

We have moved on to subtracting within 10 in maths this week. We have been using concrete materials (blocks, 10s frames, counters, fingers and rekrenreks) to help us solve subtraction problems. We have had the opportunity to play many fun maths games and have enjoyed working together. If you would like extra practise with this at home, have a look at the subtraction game on Topmarks: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/subtraction/subtraction-to-10

We explored the story of Mr Kringle’s little toy shop during our topic time this week and asked the children to predict what happens next in the story. We also looked at how toys have changed over time and toys and compared baby toys to the toys older children use.

We have been working on counting up to 10 in French and played circle time games to consolidate our learning. We were also challenged to type our full name on the Ipads during ICT.


We are now posting all of your child’s homework on See Saw. We aim to post three different home learning activities each week and this will be uploaded every Monday morning. We hope you have all managed to access this from home but please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you are having any problems.  This week we ask that you complete the segmenting and blending reading activity, the subtraction problems and a French activity to consolidate what we have been learning in class.

It has been lovely seeing all of your work on See Saw and well done to everyone that has posted so far. Thank you for your continued support with this,

Miss Christy and Miss Daun.
