P1A and P1B Blog


Monday 12th September:

We’ve been busy!

We have now been in Primary One for a month! What a brilliant month it has been! We have played and learned with P1 pals. We have rekindled friendships from Carrick Knowe nursery and developed new ones with those who went elsewhere.

We are developing our skills in sharing and working together. Amongst other things, we have been playing games, building, using playdoh, drawing, painting and tidying up!

As you are no doubt aware, there are giraffes all around Edinburgh. To learn more about the different places around school, Mrs Mac and Mrs Hunter hid giraffes around the building for us to find. We loved giraffe hunting and visited lots of places including Mrs Canning’s office, the medical room, the ICT room and the P7 classroom. Our favourite part was when we got to pretend to be the teachers and sit in the staff room!

We have started to learn to write our numbers and sounds. What an impressive start writing the digits from 0 to 6 and the sounds m and a. We have learned that when writing the numbers we start at the top and when writing he sounds we start at the bottom, on the line. Look at our awesome efforts!

This Friday was very exciting as we were matched up with a P7 buddy! Our buddies came to visit, played and read a story with us. We really enjoyed our visit and look forward to seeing them very soon.

Wednesday 24th August:

Well done to all our P1 families…
We’ve made it through a week!

We have had a brilliant start to Primary 1 and we’ve learned lots of things about how school works.

We now know our houses (Broom – Yellow, Carrick – Blue, Castle – Red and Traquair – Green) and are becoming more confident with the routines of the day.

We are looking forward to learning lots of things and having loads of fun in P1.

Here we are in our classes enjoying a story and a chat with our teacher.
