# P1 Home Learning- Thursday 1st November 2018

### Literacy

This week we have been learning new sounds. We are almost finished learning all of the initial sounds. We will then spend a few weeks consolidating our learning before beginning learning new sounds.

Sounds and Tricky words this week:

Sounds: ‘qu’ ‘x’ and ‘w’

Tricky words: ‘want’ ‘was’ and ‘saw’

Please continue to work on sounds and tricky words at home. We have been enjoying reading and writing tricky words at our writing station this week.

### Numeracy

This week we have been learning:

• to count in steps of 2. (0,2,4,6,8,10,12…)
• to work out double facts. Can you work on the facts/calculations below at home?

1 + 1 =                                 Challenge facts:  6 + 6 =

2 + 2 =                                                                 7 + 7 =

3 + 3 =                                                                  8 + 8 =

4 + 4 =                                                                  9 + 9 =

5 + 5 =                                                                  10 + 10 =
