Primary One Home Learning Wednesday 21 February

Reading

Please follow the activity as directed in your child’s reading jotter. If your child has been given a word wall please continue to practise these words.

Phonics

Our new sounds this week are ‘oo’ and ‘ew’ as in ‘new’ and ‘few’.  Use your flashcards to help you recognise the sounds.  See if you can teach an adult or someone at home the actions we have learnt to help us remember the sounds these digraphs make.

As an extra challenge, see how many words you can make with these sounds.

Writing

We have been practising forming letters correctly this week.  Keep practising using the correct pencil grip and see if you can think of some fun ways to practise your writing at home.

Numeracy

We have been focussing on our addition skills this week and have been using different strategies such as careful counting, using doubles, using our fingers to help when there are no physical items to count and counting on from a number.

With someone at home, take turns to roll two dice and add the numbers together.  For an extra challenge, you could play this game using two dominoes instead.
