P1 Home Learning- Thursday 1st November 2018


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.

Most children have a book home to work on. Please use the ‘Reading Guide’ inside your child’s reading record to support your child at home. (See previous post for more information).


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 =
