We are really looking forward to seeing our new Primary 1 children again.

We will provide each child with their own pencils, crayons and colouring pencils which will stay in school at their own desk.

Please collect your child at 12noon from the side entrance of the school.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Outdoor Play


P1 have loved learning in our new outdoor classroom and mud kitchen. We created our own ‘soup’ recipes using natural materials from the garden. P1 have loved using the bikes and other outdoor equipment in the school play park.


Autumn Play


P1 have been learning all about the world around them. We are looking at the signs of Autumn and discovering how we can use what we found on our Autumn Walk for Play. Have a look..

Play In P1




P1's topic for November and December is 'Toys'. We will look at the difference between toys in the past and toys in the present.

We will talk about and show our favourite toy to the class and see how our toys work and move. We will also look at toys from around the world and Christmas traditions.

Take a look at some pictures from our experiment where we tested materials to see which would be best to use to make teddy's umbrella.


High Five Password


Primary One are learning to recognise and read our High Frequency Words.

We have created a special password to enter the P1 classroom.

Every child must High Five and say the 4 important words of the week.

The password changes every week so P1 have to be on their toes!

Watch Matthew in the video below, he's an expert already!
