Bookbug online

Hello everyone,
Have you been missing our visits to Loanhead library to see Isi and friends. The staff certainly have! Isi always makes singing and rhyming more fun. Our favourite song is the Hello song.
If you would like join in a bookbug session and listen to Isi and Margaret click on the link below.
I wonder if you can remember the words and actions to your favourite song ? Or maybe you will learn a new song or rhyme to share with us? Make sure you get your grown ups to join in too.
Have fun 🎶 🎵


School Uniform – P1 19/20 Fashion Show for P1 20/21

Hi all,

As some of you may or may not know each year as part of transition the current primary one put on a school uniform fashion show for nursery children and parents entering into primary one the follow term. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the opportunity to do this before school closures. However p1 19/20 wouldn’t let that stop them and donned their school uniforms once again to put a virtual fashion show on just for you! We hope this is helpful and we hope you enjoy it.

We can’t wait to see you all soon,

Miss Ramsay and Primary 1 19/20

Letters from P1 19/20 to P1 20/21

Hello Future P1 parents and children,

All of us at Loanhead appreciate how unsettling it must be thinking about sending your little ones to school at the moment therefore we felt you may appreciate some words of wisdom from some of our youngest. P1 have thinking back over the year about their initial nerves and fears as well as all the things they love about being part of our school. Hopefully this helps you and your child begin to get excited about joining us in August as our whole team are looking forward to welcoming you as part of the Loanhead Primary School.

Handa’s Hen

Good afternoon,

Here is a lovely story to follow on from Handa’s suprise from the other week.  It tells the story of Handa’s Grandmas hen ‘Mondi’ who Handa is very fond of. One morning the hen goes missing and Handa and her friend go on the hunt to find Mondi.

There are lots of opportunities to count and recognise animals throughout the story.

Below is a link to the story and activities.
