P1 Week Beginning 27/02/17


Monday 27th – Gymnastics, the children loved the gymnastics session last week so we will be building on their learning this week.

Wednesday 1st March – Photographer in school, class photos will be taken so please can all children wear school uniform.

Thursday 2nd March – World Book Day – to celebrate this we are doing a week of ‘drop everything and read’! If children would like to bring a book from home they can or they can use book from school. When a bell rings the whole school will drop everything and read.


Reading – this will continue as normal for red and yellow groups. Blue group will have reading in a different form, please encourage your child to do the reading required by themselves so that are recognising the need to apply what they have learnt.

Numeracy – we have been working on ‘doubles within 10’ please help your child to recognise these and recall the facts eg 1+1 = 2

Sounds – we are continuing to introduce consonant blends at the start of words. It is important to revisit their other sounds regularly and to continue to spell simple words eg. sat, mat, pit, fish.


You may have heard that we have had a visit from a sad dragon! We are starting a topic called ‘Fairyland’ this is introduced by the dragon that writes a letter to the children asking them to help him because children have stopped reading fairy tales and Fairyland has disappeared. We are working with P2 on this topic and will cover a lot of language work through this topic. In order to help with this topic please could children collect junk, eg. boxes of different sizes (not too big!), kitchen roll tubes (not toilet roll tubes), tubs etc., for us to use to create things for ‘Fairyland’ Also if you have any plastic takeaway tubs please could you send these in.

Many thanks,

Lisa Cumming
