P1

Welcome to P1 🤓

The boys and girls in P1 are working really hard at learning their letter sounds and their counting. At West Winds, we use the ‘Handwriting Without Tears’ programme to teach the children how to form their letters and numbers; this is a multi-sensory approach where the children experience writing letters and numbers in different contexts e.g using playdough, ‘wet, dry, try’ and constructing letters with different plastic pieces.

The children really love playing outside, whatever the weather! They especially love climbing trees and riding on their wheeled vehicles.

During Anti-Bullying Week, we read the story ‘Have you filled a bucket today?’ by Carol McCloud. The children in P1 are great ‘bucket fillers’ (making others happy) and are able to know when others are ‘bucket dipping’ (being unkind).
