P1

Welcome to Year 1!

 

It is an exciting time as we welcome our new P1 children. In Primary 1, we aim to develop confident and happy children who love to learn through play and practical based experiences.

 

We look forward to sharing our exciting news with you about all the fantastic things that happen in our Primary 1 class. Keep checking our page to see updates of our super work!

We had a special visit from Ellie the Litter Elf. She read us a story and talked to us about not littering in our community. We showed her our super listening skills!

Primary 1 have been busy sorting objects. We can sort by colour and size.

Having fun at the Halloween Disco 👻🎃

We wanted to find out about the different eye colours in our class. We found that the most common eye colour was brown and the least common eye colour was green.

Primary 1 have been learning about our senses. We tested our sense of taste and tried different foods. We had to decide if they were sweet, savoury or sour. Lemon was our least favourite thing to try!

We have been learning about our body parts

We are enjoying some Autumn themed play 🍁🍂

Primary 1 had a special visit from the illustrator, Dapo Adeola. He read ‘We’re Going to Find the Monster’ before we helped him draw some very scary monsters!

As part of our “All About Me” topic, we have been learning about what makes us special and unique. We looked at our fingerprints and found that they are all different.

We have been ordering and writing our names.

Look at the patterns we can make!

To celebrate European Day of Languages, we dressed in colours of European flags and had some yummy croissants for our snack. Miss Bunse taught us a German song about Autumn. Enjoy listening to our lovely singing!
