​Our Classroom Rules

Dina the Dinosaur visited our classroom and explained our classroom rules. Our classroom rules help us to work hard and behave well.

Dina says we must-


1. Always try our best

2. Remember to use a 'quiet hand'

3. Listen carefully

4. Remember our manners

5. Be nice to each other


If we can follow our classroom rules we get Dina Chips.

When we collect ten Dina Chips we can choose a Dina Prize as a reward.



Star of the Week

Every Friday a child is chosen to be ‘Star of the Week’ and they get to take the class mascot home for the weekend.




Every Monday morning, as part of our Assembly, certificates are handed out to individual children who have achieved something special during the previous week. Please talk to your child about their achievement if they come home with a certificate.



PE Days

Our PE days are on Mondays (P1A), Tuesdays (both) and Thursdays (P1B).  Please ensure your child has their PE kit on these days.

Please ensure your child has their PE kit on these days. They need shorts, t-shirt and trainers this term. P.E kit should be clearly labelled with your child's name and class. This should be brought in on a Monday and kept in school until Friday so that it can be taken home to be washed


 P1B Learning Activities


Please take time to practise sounds, word boxes, tricky words, reading and number stories at home. Please refer to your child’s homework diaries.  Please ensure that you sign your child’s homework.  Comments are welcome too if your child has completed this well or if they have had any difficulties if you wish.

Please take some time to share stories and play games with your child at home.

Children are welcome to bring in items from home to explore in our Investigation Station.



Our Topic

Our topic for this term is going to be "Winter".





This term we will be learning  alternative vowel sounds eg. ea, oy, ow, ay, a_e, igh, y, i_e, o_e, u_e and ew.

This is all part of our school's Jolly Phonics Programme.

The children will be learning to recognise, write and blend words using these sounds.


The children wil be learning to recognise the following tricky words -  who, which, any, many, more, before,  other, were, because, want, saw put, could, would, should, right,  goes and does.


Our writing programme will continue this term with consolidation of sentence construction and the children will practise  writing sentences which include regular and tricky words.  The children will also be encouraged to write within a variety of genres eg. imaginative stories, letters, lists, posters or instructions within the contexts of class topics and the class mascot’s adventures.



We will be counting orally to thirty and beyond. 

The children will continue to practise forming numbers 0-30 correctly and they will consolidate their learning through play activities. 

We will continue to focus on mathematical language - more than, less than, largest, smallest, numbers before, after and between within 30 and beyond.


The children will continue to develop their understanding of addition and subtraction within 10.  They will further develop their mental strategies.


We will learn to recognise coins up to £2 and add and subtract within the context of money. 


They will be able to recognise, sort and name 3D shapes - cone, cube, cuboid, cylinder and sphere. 



Religious and Moral Education

In Primary 1 we explore Christianity. They will attend our weekly assemblies at school as well as attending a service at Annan Old Parish Church. We will also focus on developing respect for others’ needs, feelings and opinions.


Expressive Arts

This term we will be creating lots of pictures linked to our Winter topic, number and sounds. We will focus on improving the children’s fine motor skills, cutting skills and encourage creativity.

We will be singing lots of songs linked to our Jolly Phonics sounds and the children will receive specialist input from Miss Crombie on a fortnightly basis.


Health and Wellbeing

In P.E. we will be working with Mrs Mannall to support and improve the children’s athletics skills eg jumping, running and throwing.   We will also be developing our small ball skills.


One important factor is encouraging each child to dress for P.E. and to be able to organise and fold their clothes.  


It will be vital this term that we continually reinforce classroom rules and routines that are set.  We are also encouraging new friendships by involving children in different group activities.

Primary One have been very busy this term.

Here are some photographs which shows us doing our learning activities.​



Fruit Tasting

On Wednesday 29th May, P1a and P1b enjoyed a fruit tasting session organised and led by Miss McAnespie.  The children had an opportunity to try a variety of different fruits which were all kindly donated by Tesco.

River Walk

On Thursday 30th May, P1a went on a River Walk led by Duncan Ford, Hoddom and Kinmount Ranger.  The children found and identified different types of leaves and flowers and they all enjoyed a bug hunt!  We all had a great time exploring the forest and the river. 


Church Visit

On Wednesday 5th June, P1a and P1b went to visit Annan Old Parish Church.  Reverend Whiteman, Mr Dodds and Mrs Dodds talked to us all about the different parts of the church and the special services held there.  Lottie and Lucas even got married!  Then we had a drink of juice and a biscuit followed by a treasure hunt where we had to find Donald Duck! We all had a great time on our visit to Annan Old Parish Church.
