Primary 1 Blog

P1 – Friday 7th January

Welcome back!

It has been lovely having Primary 1 back, even just for these two short days. I hope everyone had a lovely holiday and that you are excited as I am for the year ahead!

At the end of every term we send the indoor shoes home so you can check they fit before they return to school. Indoor shoes help keep our classroom clean, especially from grit and mud during winter! Please remember to bring yours on Monday, if not already done so.

Learning Heroes

We met the 6 Learning Heroes this week. They help us to achieve our targets and give us a boost when we are doing our tasks. We are using them to help us achieve our New Years Resolutions.


This year, Languages Week Scotland will run from 31 January – 4 February 2022. The theme is “The ‘Rights’ Approach – incorporating learners’ rights within Scotland’s languages landscape”.

In Primary 1 we learn English, phrases in Scots and Spanish and how to say hello in all of our home languages. We also use some Signalong. This helps us to be more inclusive.

In celebration of LWS, we will be learning the song below.

We would also love for you to teach us songs in your home language. Please get in touch if you would like to share.

Mental Arithmetic Focus

The whole school is working our way around this Mental Arithmetic Rainbow.

Before Christmas, our focus was the yellow band, Number Recognition.

Until the February half term, our new focus will be on the green sequencing and ordering numbers section.
