In Primary one we have had a very busy first few weeks at school. We have all settled in really well and know the daily routines of primary one. We have enjoyed taking part in a range of activities and learning experiences through play.

In literacy we have been learning the following sounds: s, a, t, p, n, i. We have been identifying words that begin with these sounds and practising our letter formations. We have had some reading books home and have been reading in class every day. Please ensure your child has their reading folder in their bag each day.

In numeracy we have been focusing on number formations and counting forwards and backwards. Backwards is quite tricky but we all try very hard! We have been focusing on money – looking at different ways to pay and identifying coins. We enjoy paying for our hairstyles and food from the café in our playroom!

Through our play, the children have become very interested in babies and families. It would be great if you could send in any baby photos (on Seesaw or physical photos) of your child.


  • All children should have indoor shoes.
  • Please ensure water bottles only contain water in them.
  • PE days are Monday and Wednesday.
  • Reading books are handed out on a Monday and must be returned on a Friday. We are using these everyday so it would be great if your child could have their reading folders in their bags every day.


Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs Macaulay, Mrs Muir & Mrs Steel
