Miss Price and Primary 1 
Welcome to Primary 1! We are a fun, hard working class who are settling very well into our new school. Our class is made up of 24 children. In our class there are 16 boys and 8 girls. In our class we love to work together through play and active learning opportunities and we are having lots of fun getting to know the other children in our school. Each week we enjoy spending time with our Primary 6 and 7 buddies who are helping us settle into our new school.

Please have a look at our class gallery to see the fun things we have been doing in school.  

This term, Primary 1 are very busy learning lots of new things. We are working very hard to learn all of our sounds and each day we practice using our sounds to read and write. Each week Primary 1 learn new common words which we practice lots both in class and at home for homework. We love using BugClub in Primary 1 to help us learn our new words and sounds. This year we are also using a new programme called Talk for Writing to help us learn and write new stories. So far this term, Primary 1 have worked on a story called Charlie's Story and had lots of fun learning the actions to go with the story. We are now learning a new story called Little Red Hen.


In numeracy, Primary 1 are focusing on counting up to 20. We are using lots of concrete materials to support us in counting to 20 and enjoy taking part in lots of play activities to help us practice our counting. Primary 1 practice numbers in lots of different ways and enjoy counting songs to help us learn our numbers. This term we have explored pattern and shape are now moving on to information handling. 


In R.E, P1 will be exploring the ways in which we are all special, what makes us unique and the talents that we hold. Primary 1 will attend mass on the first Friday of the month along with the rest of the school. This term Primary 1 are working hard on preparing for our Nativity performance in December.

Health and Wellbeing

For Health and Wellbeing, Primary 1 work with Mr Crookston every Wednesday morning where they will be learning how to look after their bodies and how to keep themselves fit and healthy. Primary 1 will also do PE on a Friday with Miss Price.


This term, our topic has been Autumn. Primary 1 have explored the season of Autumn and have enjoyed going on Autumn walks around the community. Primary 1 used their senses to think about what we can see, smell, hear, touch and taste during Autumn. We enjoyed collecting things we see during Autumn to make our own Autumn collages. As the term continues, Primary 1 will be concentrating on their Nativity performance for the fesive period.


In Primary 1 we will be learning three different langagues. All children in the class learn Gaelic with Mrs McCallum each week and in class we will be learning French and Makaton. Makaton is a signing language and every week we practise a new sign.
