Welcome to the P1 class of 2023/2024


Mrs Hazley is our teacher and our wonderful classroom assistants are Mrs Hanna (Mon - Wed) and Mrs Todd (Thur & Fri). We hope you enjoy finding out about all the fun things we have been learning in P1!


In P1 we take a practical approach to teaching and learning allowing our pupils to find fun and excitement in their learning everyday! 

A big part of P1 is Learning Through Play. We understand and value the importance of play in a child’s development. It contributes to positive mental health and wellbeing, develops skills such as resilience, problem solving, sharing and negotiating, and most of all - it is fun! Pupils also experience lots of opportunities for outdoor play and learning.

In P1, pupils build the foundations of their Numeracy and Literacy knowledge and understanding. We use the Jolly Phonics programme to teach early Literacy skills in a progressive, multi-sensory way. Practical materials are used in Numeracy to help children develop a sense of number and a love for the subject. 

We work closely with our Nursery to ensure there is a smooth transition to Primary School. P1 is a happy year filled with wonderful experiences and opportunities for all children to grow, develop and learn.

Our Topics Include...

  • Ta Daa! It's Me!
  • Shhh! It's Almost Christmas.
  • Brrr! It's Cold Outside.
  • Love Your Garden.
  • Wish You Were Here!

World Book Day

We celebrated World Book Day on 7th March by having a Big Bedtime Read. We had a great time in our pyjamas sharing stories and completing lots of fun activities.

We love books in P1. 📚


On 5th February we celebrated our 100th day of Primary 1.We had lots of fun at the different activities and made 100 day medals too!

Brrr! It’s Cold Outside

We are loving our new topic “Brrr! It’s Cold Outside.” Check out some of the activities we have been enjoying in our play room. We’ve even turned our role play area into an igloo! ❄️

❄️☃️ Snow much fun ☃️❄️


This half term our topic is “Brrr! It’s Cold Outside” and what better way to learn about it than to experience it first hand having fun in the snow! We warmed our hands by the fire pit and enjoyed story time outside too.

Such a fun day of playing, learning and exploring outdoors!❄️ ☃️ ❄️


Christmas time in P1 

Christmas is a magical time in P1!


We dressed up and took part in our Nativity Play, 'The Twinkly Nativity'. 

Christmas PJ Fun Day


After making some treats we settled down to watch a movie, enjoyed some hot chocolate and had so much fun taking part in ‘Jump, Jiggle and Jive’.

What a lovely festive day! 🎄


Kindness Week in P1...

As part of Kindness Week we took part in ‘Odd Socks’ day. We wore odd socks to show it's ok to be different and unique. We talked about how we can be kind to each other and who we can reach out to if someone is being unkind. We are all so kind in P1 🫶


The Pen Disco

Today we went to the Pen Disco! At the pen disco, we practise drawing different lines and shapes, to help with our letter formation. We use lots of different colours to make our creations very colourful and listen to music as we make marks. We really enjoyed our first pen disco and cannot wait to do this again next week!🎶

We took part in 'Mad Hair Day' during our 'Cash for Kids' challenge...
