Dear Primary 1,

Welcome back! Did you all have a restful break?  We hope you are all well and got to eat chocolate, get outside and do lots of things that you and your families enjoy. It is very strange not coming back to school after the holidays and seeing you all, but we know we will get to see your smiling faces again soon. For now, all we can do is what we can, when we can and find little pockets of joy in each day.

We will be updating how we display your weekly learning next week with directed sounds, reading and numeracy tasks and a few fun things to look at too but for this week we would like it if you could:  

  • Check your Sumdog account, there are new Literacy and Numeracy challenges for you to do.
  • Choose an activity from the Literacy and Numeracy grids on the website, it could be an activity you have previously enjoyed or a new one.
  • Click on this link: and complete the Bitesize Daily Lesson on ‘My Favourite Story’.
  • Click on this link: and complete the Bitesize Daily Lesson on ‘Counting Forwards and Backwards’.
  • Write a Spring Story. What changes have you noticed outside in the past few weeks? Can you draw a picture of those changes and write a sentence?
  • Do one active thing a day, you could follow Joe Wicks and his 9am live P.E lessons or get outside for a walk, run or cycle.

We hope you all have a lovely week and can get out and enjoy this lovely weather!

Week beginning 30th March

Dear Primary 1 pupils, parents and carers,

Now that we are all starting to settle in to our new routine, the P1 teachers wanted to take this opportunity to write to you to say a big ‘well done!’ for getting through this week. Whether you did all of the activities suggested or none, we understand and appreciate how hard you will all be working to help your children feel safe and have fun during these strange times.

As a team we wanted to offer a little reassurance to you about the amazing progress your children have made since starting school. They have blossomed not only academically, but have become resilient and responsible members of our school community. We understand that you may have concerns about the impact school closure could have upon their progress. Please try not to. The best way that you can maintain your child’s learning at home is to practice key things (numbers, spelling, reading) little but often, complete some of the activities suggested if you can, but most importantly of all, talk, read to and play with your child. Remember that they may be feeling worried or sad, and that traditional learning must always come second to making them feel happy and settled.

We are constantly looking for ideas to help you support your child’s learning at home. At the moment we have provided:

  • SumDog logins for all P1 pupils to access differentiated spelling, reading and numeracy challenges. These challenges are differentiated and will be changed weekly.
  • A grid of Health & Wellbeing activities for you to choose from. We suggest you complete 1 or 2 activities per week.
  • A grid of literacy activities that do not require access to technology. We suggest you choose 1 or 2 of these activities to repeat throughout the week.
  • A grid of numeracy activities (differentiated through SEAL chapters). These again do not require technology to complete.
  • A selection of writing opportunities for your child to choose from. We suggest they complete 1 of these per week.
  • A list of useful websites that you can access at home. For some of these, such as Oxford Owl, log in details have been included on the list.

Once again, we want to reassure you that these are all simply suggestions. We understand that families will all be working within their own unique set of circumstances and will all be doing the best that they can.

We are all missing our classes a lot, and hope that everyone is staying safe. With any luck, we will see you all again soon.
