P1 Week Beginning 7.11.22


Learning trio sheet will be given out on Friday 11th November. This is the sheet which includes your child’s strengths, areas for improvements and targets to work on for their next learning trio (February).

We had such a lovely time at the Loanhead Library on Friday, thank you so much to the wonderful ladies for taking the time to read us a story!

This week, the P7 pupils will be selling poppies prior to their Remembrance assembly on Friday.

Monday 7th November – Flu nasal sprays in school.

Tuesday 8th November – Our buddies will be introducing the children to their Bookbug bags which they will bring home with them on this same day.

Friday 11th November – We are having our first Primary 1 ‘Stay and Play’. Parents/Carers are invited to stay for a little bit of the morning to come and experience some of our play-based learning. I do ask that only one parent/carer attends per child, if possible, as we have limited space in our class/atrium. Please come to the P1 classroom door for 9am and we will finish around 9:40/45am.


Reading: Pages to be read will be written in your child’s green reading record, please sign to evidence reading has been completed. A gentle reminder, that it is really important your child learns their orange key words, as once they can do this, they will begin to read books with words. 

Sounds: This week we are learning the sounds ie, ee, or and the children will be bringing home the sound worksheet to practise their letter formation that same day the sound has been taught. Monday – ie, Tuesday – ee and Wednesday – or. 

We have a big focus on blending/segmenting CVC this term, so it is really important you continue to practise the sounds we have learned with your child. If you are unsure of how to pronounce the sounds, then all of them can be found on this website: https://www.jollylearning.co.uk/resource-bank/learn-the-letter-sounds/

Please ensure that your child brings their book bag to school EVERYDAY, as we will be doing reading everyday. They will be kept in school on a Friday, in order to have new homework ready for the following Monday.

P.E will be on Wednesday with Miss Simpson and Thursday with Mrs Lynch. 

I am looking forward to see you on Friday!

Miss Lauren Waller
