This week we will again focus on number – counting, reading, saying, writing.


As part of our Big Maths we do CLIC sessions in the class which now in Primary 1 involve C – counting  L – learn its I – it’s nothing new and C – calculations.

Counting – CORE numbers to 10 (compare, order, round,                                                     estimate)

Learn its –  3 + 3 = 6 and 4 + 4 = 8 and 5 + 5 = 10

It’s Nothing New – doubling 1 digit numbers

Calculations – understand the concept of subtraction


Our topic for the first weeks of this term is Scotland. This week we will continue to watch and listen to some more Katie Morag stories. We will carry on with our clapping, skipping, galloping and doing a little routine with a partner to Scottish music in the gym. The children will get a poem home to learn – Pets by Les Wheeler. We will look at and try to make some tartan patterns.
