P1 – Monday 25th October

Hello, I hope you all had a lovely holiday and enjoy your day off today. We have 8 weeks until Christmas holidays and lots of fun experiences coming up!

Dress Down Day

This FRIDAY is our dress down day. You may dress up for Halloween or wear non-school uniform. Sometimes Halloween costumes can be scary. Costumes from films or games should be suitable for the age of the pupil. If you would like some support with a Halloween outfit, please let P1 staff know so we can help. We are very excited!

National Poetry Day

7th October was National Poetry Day. We enjoyed hearing a few poems and playing the game taught to us by author Simon Mole below! Inspired by Simon Mole, we created our own class poem called Dream Day. We then each had a go at writing our own ones. Being creative and imaginative in our writing can help us develop a joy of writing!

Maths – Time Topic

This week we had two focusses. We were developing our knowledge of the days of the week further by using the story The Very Hungry Caterpillar and sorting the days and the food he ate. We also learnt about how you can see time passing through looking at the trees. This helped us learn about the 4 seasons.


We have enjoyed reading the book The Colour Monster throughout our first term. At the beginning, the colour monster is ‘all mixed up’ so we sort his feelings into 6 different jars. Listen to the story below.

We ‘check in’ our feelings every morning and can move our peg throughout the day to share how we are feeling.

Community classrooms

We loved having the Primary 7s come visit us and teach us all about place value. Well done to the P7s for teaching us such a tricky topic and well done to Primary 1 who listened so intently!

Thank you for taking the time to look at our blog.

Feel free to reply to this post!

Have a super week.
