Thank you to everyone who attended this week's curriculum meetings. We hope that you found the information useful. The slides from the meeting can be found below.
Helping out in the Shop and Post Office
It's been very busy in the Isle of Struay Shop and Post Office. Katie Morag and her family asked us to help out. We wrapped parcels, tying them with string, before weighing them. We wrote letters, stuck on stamps and posted them and helped Katie Morag to deliver the mail.
Visiting the Isle of Struay
In English, we are reading the story of 'Katie Morag Delivers the Mail' by Mairi Hedderwick. As part of our learning, we 'visited' the Isle of Struay to find out about life on the island. We visited the shop and post office, painted walls with Mr MacMaster, painted miniatures with the Lady Artist, planted seeds with Mrs Bayview and went fishing with the Holiday People. We also had lots of fun paddling in the stream by the Redfern Bridge. All too soon it was time to get back on the ferry to come back to school!
Our First Week in Year 1!
It's been a busy (and very hot) week in Year 1. We've all settled in well and are having lots of fun learning and playing. We've been exploring our new surroundings and learning our new routines.
Welcome to Year 1!
We hope that you have had a fantastic Summer and had fun making lots of memories with your families!
We are excited to start our learning in Year 1 - We will be learning about Scotland, its geography and history and looking at the Katie Morag stories in English. In art, we will learn to create water colour paintings of Scottish landscapes and weave our own tartan in DT. We'll be learning about different materials in science, different types of music and about families and friendships. There's lots to learn and we can't wait to get started!
This term, our P.E. day is Friday, so please come to school wearing your P.E. kit. Our library day will be Tuesday. Spellings will be given out on Fridays and tested the following week.
