This year Primary 1l have Miss Little as their teacher.
I am delighted to welcome your child to Primary 1 and I am so impressed with how well the children have settled into the classroom. We had a lovely couple of days getting to know each other during our first week back at school.
There are many new procedures in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all children and staff. We will ensure children sanitise and wash their hands regularly, particularly at the beginning of the school day, before/after eating and before home time. Children can bring in their own hand cream if they feel their hands are dry due to the hand sanitiser. It is important your child does not bring in any toys or stationary to school as we are trying to minimise the number of objects passed between school and home.
As we are a health promoting school we encourage the children to eat healthily in school as part of our work on Health and Wellbeing. You can support this by providing your child with a healthy snack to eat in the morning playtime outdoors (for example, fruit, cheese sticks, yoghurt tubes) and a bottle of unflavoured, still water. Please ensure these are sports capped bottles to help prevent spillages.
This term the children will be engaging in various Literacy and Numeracy Tasks to develop their phonological awareness and number skills. This will be taught in an interactive way to help engage the children in their learning and provide them with lots of different opportunities to learn and develop their knowledge and skills. We will also be participating in a Whole School Approach towards Health and Wellbeing to ensure the children feel safe, healthy, achieving, nurtured, active, respected, responsible and included. There will also be lots of opportunities to experience other areas of the Curriculum for Excellence as the term progresses.
If you have any questions, concerns or comments please phone the school office and I will get back to you as soon as possible via phone call. All staff must follow the rules and adhere to the guidance and protocols in place, so unfortunately we are unable to respond to any questions or queries in the playground.
I have also attached a home arrangement sheet so I am aware of who is collecting your child on which specific days. Please return to me ASAP. If there are any changes to your child’s home arrangements, please phone the school office in advance.
Thank you for your support!
