Hello Year One


It was so lovely to speak to lots of you last week, it made me so happy! I loved speaking to you all so much that I decided to write a little poem for you all to show how much I miss you and how much I miss us all being together.  But remember children, even though we are not all together at the moment, I will see you soon.  I hope you have a wonderful half term, full of fun and adventures.

A Teacher

To be a teacher is to teach

To encourage, to inspire, to care

I love being your teacher

And all the fun we always share


To be a teacher is to listen

To motivate, to nurture, to guide

I love being your teacher

And being by your side


To be a teacher is to build

Confidence, resilience and belief

I love being your teacher

Though our time this year was brief


To be a teacher is to cherish

Moments of laughter, accomplishment and fun I love being your teacher

You shine far brighter than the sun


To be a teacher is to believe

In your strength, your goals, your hearts

I love being your teacher

Even when we are apart


To be a teacher is forever

All of you I hold so dear

I love being your teacher

Hello Year One!


Here are some more smiles that have come in from your friends!

It has been so lovely to speak to you this week, I have loved hearing about all the things you have been doing.  Lots of you have been baking, gardening, bouncing, cycling, building, crafting and playing! Some of you have been growing tomatoes and making art with painted potatoes! Lots of you have been taking part in the Great Science Share and have been making Rocket Mice! What a lot of fun you have all had! I have been in school this week having lots of fun too.  I have been planting sunflower seeds, painting rainbows, dancing, making hedgehog art and making bubble mixture!  Please keep sending in your fabulous pictures, they always make me smile!

I hope you are having lots of fun at home.  I am so excited because next week I will be in school and I will be phoning each of you.  I can’t wait to hear about all the things you have been doing!  I wonder what your bears have been up to, I hope they have not been getting into any mischief!  Thank you so much for all of your lovely smiles!  I know that you would all like to see your friend’s smiley faces so here are a selection and I will add more as I get them.


Have a lovely week!

Hello Year One


I hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather and the lovely activities that are on our class home learning page.  I have received some emails from some of you which make me smile so much!  Rosie Rabbit is still in school because she wanted to get everything nice and tidy for when we go back.  She is such a kind, caring rabbit!  I got a message from her this morning. Have a look at the message below!


If you have any messages for her, please let me know and I will make sure she gets them!


Have a lovely weekend

Hello Lovely Year One!

What gorgeous sunny weather we have had this week! What have you been getting up to? I have been in school this week playing out in the sun and planting seeds.  I know some of you have been using your magnifying glasses to hunt for mini beasts and have sent some amazing photographs, I wonder what else you will discover with them.  Maybe you could look for some plants, trees and flowers and use your magnifying glasses to draw the different patterns you can see and look at the different parts of the plant. I would love to see some drawings of what you find.

I hope you have an amazing weekend and enjoy a lovely Easter full of fun!

Lots of Love

Hello Year One!


How are you all? I hope you are having lots and lots of fun! I am missing you so so much but I know that you will have so many things to tell me when we are all back in class and I can’t wait!


I have been very busy learning lots of new things and doing some science experiments.  I have also been doing PE with Joe Wicks every morning!


Do you remember your number bonds to 10 and 20?  Maybe you could create them using things from your home or garden and take a photograph.  I will see it if your mummy or daddy put them on Twitter for me to see!


I will write to you again next week.


Have fun


Love from Mrs Greer xx

Hello Year One!!


I hope you are all having lots of fun at home and that your bears are investigating lots of things around the house!  Remember to fill in their books so that when we are all back at school, you can tell us all about their investigations! They love a story at the end of the day too, so please read to them to send them off to sleep after their busy days!

I have been busy too planning lots of activities for you and also getting things ready for when we all get back to school.  

My children love animals and have been keeping an eye on the tigers, pandas and koala bears at Edinburgh Zoo!  We have been able to do this without actually going to the zoo because Edinburgh Zoo have set up some special cameras to let us all see the animals from home!  Koala Bears are my favourite animal! It is so exciting, ask your grown up to find them on the internet at and have a look for yourself!


I will be in touch again soon

Have fun :-)

Love from Mrs Greer
