Primary 1 coped well with the two longer days last week and managed the lunch hall really well. I hope they are not too tired!
Sounds: This week the sounds are as identified in the letter issued last week – so sounds P,I,N. I will teach them in class, one-a-day. It was good to see how hard they worked with their homework. Please encourage them to do a whole line of the letter practice.
Reading: Please ensure your child’s reading book is sent in every day with the red record card. These wordless books will be changed more regularly than when they move onto books with words.
Music: This term we will have music every week with Mrs Callaghan.
PE: Is on Tuesday and Wednesday – all children must have a t-shirt and shorts/leggings to change into for PE.
P1 Curriculum Evening: Tuesday 5th September, 5.30 -6.30pm. It will be lovely to see you all if you can make it.
School Photographer: Wednesday:6th September: please make sure your child is wearing school uniform that day. Sibling photographs will be taken if the sibling is in school or nursery – this will be organised in school.
Outdoor Learning: Thursday 7th and Friday 8th September: P1 will be involved in Outdoor Learning. Small groups will work in the woodland beside the school with children from St. Margaret’s and led by Sean Fallon (Outdoor Education Leader) and a member of school staff. Each child will have a letter explaining which day they are going. On the day they are going they do not need to wear school uniform but waterproof clothing and boots is required. They will still have lunch at school as normal and they will require a snack as usual.
NB: The children will finish school on Thursday 14th September for the holiday weekend and return on Tuesday 19th September
