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 assistant Mrs Murray to help us learn each day.

We are super excited to begin term 3 with our children. We will have a wonderful topic of the Space (Blast Off) in term 3a and Minibeasts/Seaside in term 3b.

We are participating in the Music Makers workshop (6weeks), provided through the CCEA music specialisit and will be performing alongside 4 other schools at the beginning of June.

This term we will be continuing our Getting Ready to Learn programme, 'Ages and Stages'. We are delighted with how the Big Bedtime Read workshop went with parents and how much the children enjoyed getting new books home each week. We will be hosting a Stay and Play afternoon for both parents of nursery and P1 to join. 

Throughout Primary 1 we will be covering the following topics through our WAU curriculum area:

  • Marvelous Me (1a)
  • Autumn (1a)
  • Fun with Food (1b)
  • Christmas (1b)
  • Polar Lands (2a)
  • Dinosaurs (2b)
  • Once Upon a Time (2b)
  • Blast Off! (space) (3a)
  • Minibeasts/Seaside (3b)

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