Primary 1

Primary 1b

Learning Log – Week Beginning 4.6.18

What has gone well this week?

This week we continued with our topic of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  Poor Baby Bear’s chair was broken by Goldilocks, as she was obviously too big for it, so we decided to make him a new one.  The only materials we had available were newspaper and cellotape. It was quite a difficult task to make a chair from newspaper and cellotape, but everyone did a good job. Lachlan was awarded ‘Star of the Week’, because he was very inventive. Well done everyone!

We have enjoyed going outside for PE this week. It is fun to play on the equipment and everyone was able to throw or roll balls into the hula hoops.  We were practising for sport’s day. Most children like to run races.

We all look forward to getting new reading books on a Monday and we are glad that our teachers have tried to read more books to us this week. We know that the author writes the story and the illustrator draws the pictures.

What could be better?

The children would like songs to dance to during Golden Time.  In the pictures above you can see some of our children dancing to the Good Morning song we learned for last week’s assembly.


Primary 1 Assembly

Primary 1 had their class assembly today! Thank to everybody who came to watch it. Here are some of our drawings of Goldilocks and the Three Bears:

Learning Log – Week Beginning 21st May 2018

We have been very busy this week. We have been practising for our assembly.   We are excited about performing and we have enjoyed learning some new songs.

Lots of children in our class enjoy playing with the blocks, so we often put them on the carpet. The boys in the photo made an amazing castle for “good-guys”.  Well done, boys!

Our class still enjoy running the Daily Mile.  Also, we have started to learn more about capital letters and have been practising writing them.  We know that a sentence always starts with a capital letter.

Austin likes it when the teacher reads stories to the class, so we will try to make time for more stories.

On Friday we went to the big hall to watch Primary 2/1 perform their assembly.  Orla liked listening to the French song.  She says that singing French songs makes learning French easier.  Daniel knew all of the songs for this assembly and enjoyed singing along.

Lexi was pleased for Austin when he was awarded ‘Star of the Week’  for his good cursive handwriting.  Sophie also enjoyed listening to the song that Mrs. Borrowman had chosen for her lesson about bullying.  It was called ‘Too Late to Apologise’.

Week Beginning – 7.05.18



The children in Primary 1 really loved dancing to the ‘Fischy’ songs from this week’s assembly.  Sonny says that ‘Stronger’ is his favourite song.  Niamh, Archie, Emma and Oliwia also like dancing to ‘My Body, Your Body’.  Emma thought that talking about being healthy was really interesting.  Emma and Niamh do exercises to keep strong.


This week we have started writing weekend diaries. We know that good sentences have a capital letter at the beginning; a full stop, question mark or exclamation mark at the end; and finger spaces between the words.  We sound out words to help us spell them.

We have also been learning new sounds.  When you have the letter o and another letter o together they make a new sound ‘oo’, as in the words ‘foot’ and ‘book’.

Two ‘e’ sounds make a new sound ‘ee’, as in the words ‘feet’ and ‘meet’.


For maths we have been learning to measure.  We have been comparing things in the classroom to find out which are the heaviest and lightest.  Lots of children enjoyed weighing things in the water tray. When you fill containers with water, the containers that hold the most water are the heaviest. We have also been comparing things in the classroom to find out which are the shortest and longest.  We measured the length of lots of things, for example, pencils, bottles and shoes. The metre stick was the longest thing we measured and the scissors were the shortest thing that we measured.

Week beginning  23.4.18

Lachlan says that he enjoyed PE with Mrs. Laughlin.  The children were trying-out for sports’ day races.  Lachlan enjoyed being able to run really fast.  Abbie and Latisha also enjoyed the races, but said that the hurdles race was the most fun.

On Wednesday, both primary one classes went to Lochend Park.  Felix and Niamh were partners.  They both enjoyed looking for the ducks and finding sticks in the park.  It was quite cold, so they were glad that they had wrapped up warmly.

On Friday we were invited to watch the Primary 3b assembly in the big hall.  This was Alan’s favourite part of the week.  He especially enjoyed their performance of the song ‘My Body, Your Body’.  All of  Primary 1 enjoyed watching Primary 3b’s assembly about being healthy.  Well done Primary 3b!

Primary 1 children have enjoyed using the new resources that were bought for their classrooms.  We have big blocks, new games, a painting easel and some new furniture.


World Book Day

This week P1 enjoyed dressing up for World Book Day.

The whole class enjoyed watching P3b’s assembly.  They have learned a lot about Edinburgh.  They told us that Arthur’s Seat is an extinct volcano and they told us about their visit to the castle.  They also sang “Three Craw’s”.  Well done P3!


Here are some of the children in p1b playing one of their favourite maths games at the SmartBoard.  It’s called Adventure Man and is a counting game.  They were very good at taking turns and were helping each other play the game.  Well done!

What’s going well this week.

World Book Day and the assembly were fun!

Lots of children went to the movie night and had fun watching Boss Baby.  It was great fun coming to school in your pyjamas and eating popcorn.  We hope the parents enjoyed their chilli night.

We have started to learn about time.  We are keen to learn to tell “o’clock times”.

We have been learning ‘ee’ and ‘ea’ sounds which are found in words like ‘feet’ and ‘heat’.  We like learning new sounds.

In maths we have been learning to ‘count on’.
