P1 Foxes – Week beginning 10.06.19


Everyone has had a new non-fiction book home this week. We are collecting all books in on Friday 14th June. Thank you for all your help and support with reading this year at home. A big well done to all the children for putting in lots of effort.

We will continue reading challenges in class into next week.


Your child will have a home learning sheet home. This is the last home learning sheet coming home before the holidays. Please continue to revisit sounds and tricky words over the next few weeks at home.


This week we have been focusing on recognising, remembering and writing facts.

We have also been focusing on extending our writing using the word ‘because’.
