Daily Live Activities

Let me know your holiday news – I’d love to hear what you have all been up to. For example, you could use the school email to send me a photo, or you could draw a picture, make a video or write a short story  and then  send that via email: admin@buckstone.edin.sch.uk


First – double check that you know the correct order of all the letters in the alphabet.

You could watch this episode of ALPHABLOCKS to remind you.

We are learning to put things in alphabetical order. This is when you check the first letter of each word then put the words in the order that those letters come in the alphabet.


Cat, Elephant, Hippo, Kangaroo

( there doesn’t have to be a word for every single letter)


1.Make a list of names in your family. You can use just the people in your house, or you can add in cousins and other relatives if you want a longer list. Write each name on a small piece of paper then organise them into alphabetical order.

2. Can you work out what to do if there are two names beginning with the same letter ?


You can practise your spelling block on our Spelling City: spelling city webpage

If you have a scrabble set in your house, ask a parent if you can use the bag of letter tiles and see how many of your spelling words you can make with the tiles.


Read or listen to a variety of books and try this fun Reading Bingo activity by clicking the link below – how many can you cross off?

First Level Reading Bingo

Numeracy and Maths

We are learning to tell the time.

Let’s start by revising the months of the year – we worked on this in school, so this is your chance to see what you remember.


1.Recite the months of the year in order, starting with January.

2. Ask an adult to give you a quiz with questions like…..Which month comes before March/ after November etc.

3. Write all the months of the year along with a special event that happens in that month


January – Robert Burns day

Februaury – Mum’s birthday

March – Grandma and Grandad’s anniversary


Interdisciplinary learning/skills development

Lots of people are using rainbows as a symbol of hope at this strange time. Here is a picture of a rainbow of random stuff  that my friend made just for fun.


You could make a ‘stuff’ rainbow with objects from around the house and take a photo of it. If you do, please send me the photo so I can put it on the blog.

VERY IMPORTANT – if you do make a stuff rainbow, make sure you put all the things back in the right places, don’t leave it for an adult to tidy up!


Here are a couple of extra activities which you may like to try.

If you have any questions about the ideas provided, please send these to the school admin email and we will be happy to help you with anything.

Have a lovely day and enjoy the learning we have provided.

Thank you for your continued support in your child’s learning.
