Welcome to Primary 1AC 

  Mrs Cant & Miss Anderson  



6.11.19: Isla and Halle chatted about what the children have been learning recently. They have been learning about Autumn, with the leaves changing colours and falling off the trees. The class have been taking Autumn walks in the garden and collecting leaves of different colours and making them into hedgehog pictures. They have also made tree pictures with Mrs Cochrane in Art. The children have been working on their numeracy skills by counting backwards from 10. They have also been writing about their weekend news each week. In PE, they have been using the climbing bars; climbing up and then sliding down, as well as bouncing balls with one or two hands. In the classroom the star of the week gets to change the calendar every day. The children have been doing drama with the other P1 class this week in the hall.



6.9.19 The children have been settling really well into their new routines at school. This week, our lollipop lady, Karen, came in to talk to us about crossing the road safely, and how she helps us.  In literacy, the children have been learning new key words and phonic sounds. In maths, the children have been working on numbers up to 10. In French we have been learning greetings such as "bonjour", as well as doing our register and lunches in French. We have also been working on putting together our Class Charter. Both P1 classes have been enjoying  afternoon sing-songs with the guitar this week. In Art, with Mrs Cochrane we have been doing line drawings, working with lines and patterns. We have been doing PE with Mr Marshall on a Thursday, and with Miss Anderson on a Tuesday.


Please make sure that your child brings a bottle to school each day, containing only water, not juice. This can be refilled at school during the day.

Welcome to Primary 1AC. We had a lovely first day:





 Please make sure your child brings a labelled water bottle containing fresh water to school each day. All items of clothing should be clearly labelled with your child's name, including PE kits. PE kits should be kept in school. PE will take place on a Thursday with Mr Marshall, our PE specialist, and Art will be with Mrs Cochrane. Please bring in an old shirt to keep in school for use as an art apron, with your child's name on it. It is always useful to have a spare pare of pants and socks in your child's bag each day, just in case of accidents.


Please discuss your child's lunch choices for the day with them each day before they come to school, so that they have a good idea about whether they are school dinners or packed lunch, and which lunch choice they would like.
