Hello everyone! 

I wanted to write this message to say ‘hi’ and to let you know that I am thinking about you, and missing you a lot! 

Since I last saw you I have been doing some of my own learning at home, and also looking after my own girls, Emma and Sarah. Yesterday, we baked a banana cake together, and Sarah – who is also in Primary 1 – was practising her letter formation. She has been using the same letter cards as the ones you got in your Home Learning Pack. 

We then went out for our walk together and noticed lots of signs of spring; like daffodils and crocuses in gardens, and new leaves appearing on trees. Spring is my favourite time of year! 

Emma and Sarah have also been busy looking after their pet rabbits, Twitchy and Rainbow. They do this by feeding them rabbit food and hay, making sure they have plenty water, and spending lots of time with them. Unfortunately they leave me to do the yucky cleaning out part! 

I hope you are all staying well, having lots of fun and remembering to wash your hands 😊

Hi Everyone – Hope you are all doing well, looking after your families and staying safe inside. We hope you have been enjoying the Home Learning Packs. We can’t wait to see what you do with them. We have been busy coming up with ideas of things for you to do so don’t worry there is plenty more homework coming your way!

Don’t forget to have a break from screens to have some imaginative fun. Don’t be afraid to get a bit bored and let your mind wander and wonder. Amazing, creative, magical things can happen when you are bored. Maybe you’ll be a powerful princess and fight a dragon like The Paperbag Princess; maybe you’ll make a potion like George’s Marvellous Medicine – only safe ingredients please! Maybe you’ll open a café or vet practice like you did at school? Please take photos of some of the activities, pictures and stories you are really proud of to put in your purple books. I really miss your beautiful drawings and crazy stories. I’d love to see them.

I miss you loads. Take care and remember to be like the Little Princess and wash your hands to keep away the nasties!

Love from, Mrs Bird X

Hi P1A!

Sorry I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye last week. I have been thinking about you all and missing you lots. I have had an amazing year with you so far and have loved getting to know you and your families.

I am sitting at my desk at home with Alpha Dog. He says ‘hi’ to you all and is sending a big, warm, fluffy cuddle your way.

I hope you are enjoying completing some of the tasks in your home learning packs. Please remember that these tasks are just a suggestion and I am not expecting you to get through them all. There are lots of other fun activities that you can do with your family, like reading a story, learning a new song or maybe dancing along to some of the videos on Our favourite in class is ‘Peanut Butter in a Cup’.

If you are looking for something to keep you busy, you could make a lovely rainbow like the ones below and display it in your window. Children across the UK have been drawing and painting colourful rainbows to cheer others up and to raise a smile while they spend more time inside. It would be fun spotting your classmates’ creations from your window or when you are out on a short walk.

Stay safe everyone and keep smiling!

Love Mrs Arnott
