Hello P1s! We have now reached WEEK 12 of our home learning. We are so pleased that you have been enjoying all the fun activities we have set you so far!
This week our topic is - 'SUMMER'.
Please find below this weeks activities, we hope you enjoy them
** Parents and adults - please make note of the new section at the bottom of our page - Weekly work archive - We have started to archive our weekly work so that you can look back and revisit different things if needs be. We hope you will find this helpful - P1 teachers.
High frequency words:- Please continue to revise all high frequency words in preparation for P2.
There is a list of words you can print out. You can either stick or write these words onto card to make little cards. Here are some games you can play:-
Pick a pair and read the words (even if they don't match)
Can you bring me...
Choose a word and use it in a sentence
Write a sentence using 1 or more of the words.
Put up a word of the day- maybe on your fridge.
We hope you and your child enjoy these fun ways of learning.
Don't forget those tricky words too - here's a couple of
songs to practice them.
Phonics - Now we have learnt all of our letter sounds we will continue revising them each week with some different activities.
Here is another nice video to help you recap the letter sounds from a-z.
I love the Alphablocks so here's another little video to watch to revise those louder sounds:-
Listen to the story 'George, the Sun Safe Superstar' by Kathryn Clifford&Chantal Renn. Find out how to stay safe in the sun this Summer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwyqaLnsi5Q
Spelling words with 'u' as the middle letter - You might like to begin using magnetic letters (or make little letter cards) to spell cub, dug, hut, pup before you complete the worksheet or if you are unable to print it out. Remember to listen carefully for each sound and find the letter you need.
*For this activity there are 2 pages to choose from. Pick one to complete or if your are feeling really good, have a go at both of them!!
Teddy Bear's Picnic Activity - to get ourselves in the mood for our Teddy Bear's Picnic Zoom session on Wednesday why not read the words of the song with a grown up and draw a picture of your favourite Teddy.
Log into Bug Club and read the following books:-
Big Fat Rat
*Top tip for Mums and Dads* Helping your child to read can be a bit daunting sometimes. Here is a helpful video clip for you to watch which shows you how to help your child to blend sounds together when reading (this technique can also be used when spelling words too). We hope you find it helpful
Here's a song for practising blending sounds together to read CVC words. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWn-qxUddqo

Make food for a picnic
