P1 - Mrs Pyper

What a busy, exciting and wonderful first half term we have had in Primary One. We are so proud of how each and every child has settled into life in Primary One. They’ve have taken every new routine and piece of learning in their stride, and they really have worked hard. There has been so much playing and learning happening through our topic ‘There’s no one quite like me’.


We have made amazing self-portraits, looked after each other in the hospital and talked about all the different types of feelings we might have. One of our favourite parts of the week is exploring the Outdoor Garden and we have been extremely busy in this area creating gooey mud pies, building our muscles on the Trim Trail and making our own obstacle courses using crates the planks.


It has been amazing to see how hard the children have worked on learning to recognise and write their names and well as reading lots of key words and sounds. In maths we have loved learning how to count, recognise and write lots of new numbers.  Above all we have loved getting to know everybody in our class and making lots of new friends. What a super team we are already. We can’t wait to see where our learning will take us next.
