Primary One

Welcome to our Primary One Page!

We have lots of fun in Primary 1 through many different topics…

Rhyme Time

We begin our year by looking at lots of familiar nursery rhymes. Through the rhymes we explore areas such as rhythm, rhyme, shapes, colours and counting. Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill and Incy Wincy Spider and other well-known characters all pop by to help make our start to school fun and exciting.

Let's Celebrate!

We take a look at exciting celebrations around the world and here in Northern Ireland. We celebrate ourselves and remember that ‘we are special’! We think about our Birthdays and why it is such a special day. We look closely at our own special name that has been chosen just for us.

We think about why it’s important to say Thank You and discover the American celebration of Thanks Giving. We discover that light is at the centre of many celebrations and take a look at the festivals of Hanukkah and Advent, finishing the term with the celebration of Christmas.

The Magic Mirror

This topic is based around the fairy tale of Snow White and the 7 Dwarves. We think about the different characters and focus on the number 7! As the topic moves on we turn our attention to castles and explore life as a knight in a medieval castle!

Frozen

Come with us as we journey through the cold to the magical frozen lands! With inspiration from the amazing Disney movie Frozen, we look closely at ice and snow, what is it and where does it come from? What does it feel like?

Our journey takes us to the Cold lands of our own planet earth. We look at the Arctic and Antarctic, think like a polar explorer and investigate all the wonderful creatures that live in our frozen lands.

Beside the Seaside

We spend the summer term thinking about the wonderful life around our seaside. Through the story of The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch we take a closer look at lighthouses and why they are so important. We explore life inside a rockpool and investigate some of the ways we can be safe at the beach and in the sun. We also take a trip to our local beach and spend the morning building sandcastles and making beach art. As summer is just around the corner we think about holidays and step back in time to discover what kind of holidays people had 100 years ago.
