P1 and P7 Reading Buddies

Throughout term 1 P 1 and P7 joined together to enjoy stories. The P7 children read stories to the P1s. The P7s showed maturity and excellent paired reading skills. P1 children really enjoyed the experience and showed excellent listening skills.

We were reading the Snail and the Whale. It was really good fun.

We read “I’m a little teapot”. My partner listened well.

I enjoyed listening to the story the Wheels on the bus.

My favourite part of the story Said the Mouse to the Mole was the end as there were questions to answer.

The best part of Farmer Ham was when the said boo to the crows to scare them away.

I enjoyed reading books to P1s as I got to meet children I hadn’t met before.

This experience helped me learn to read with fluency and expression.

As the year progresses P1 and P7 will explore different curricular areas together.

Family learning event

Literacy Family Learning event:
Wednesday 3rd October. 6-730pm. Holm Primary School hall.

Mr Ross is hosting an event to share the new approach to spelling within the school.

The event will share:

  • Information about the new approach
  • the rationale behind it
  • examples of the activities your children are involved in each day
  • ways to support this at home

All families are welcome to attend, but the event is mainly aimed at families with children ranging from P3 to P7.

There will be another event soon aimed at the children in P1 and P2.

Children are welcome at the meeting.

Hope to see you all there.
