Primary 1

Hi everyone,

A very warm welcome to a window inside our Primary 1 classroom. Our teacher is Miss McWhirter and we have the fabulous classroom assistants are Mrs Murray, Miss Hanna and Miss Coburn to help us learn each day. We have been working very hard in September as we settle into Primary 1 life and begin to learn our Jolly Phonics sounds. We have been enjoying a variety of literacy and numeracy activities such as sorting shapes, making patterns and forming play dough into numbers and letters. We are also loving singing our Jolly Phonics songs everyday to help us remember our sounds. 

Our topics have been 'All About Me', 'Autumn' and in term 1B we are learning all about food and where it comes from. We were very lucky during our Autumn topic and got to visit the wonderful Lady Dixon Park to look at the signs of Autumn through our Shared Education Programme.

Check out our school Facebook page for updates on what we get up to weekly.
