Learning Together at Home. P1 Divine Dragonflies 2.06.2020

Good morning my Dragonflies!

I hope you had a lovely day yesterday and enjoyed the amazing weather.

Throughout the final 4 weeks of term we will be doing revision of the sounds, numeracy and maths topics we have already covered so far in P1 to ensure your child has a secure knowledge of the early level curriculum.

This week, we will be covering the digraph sounds sh, ch, th and wh. We will also be revisiting money.

This is today’s learning:

Literacy Activities


Today our focus sound is ch.

I have attached the sound PowerPoint to the blog. Please use it to revisit the sound.


  • Examples: chop, chin, church, chair

Use the words above and any other ‘ch’ words you can think of and make them outside in your garden. You could write them on the concrete using chalk, you could make them using flowers, sticks or stones you have found around your garden. You could make them using a paint brush and water. There are many different ways you could make your ‘ch’ words outside.

Be Geraldine

Be Geraldine, have a look around your house and see if there are any words featuring the ch sound.

Please complete the attached ‘ch’ worksheets. Can you child use the pictures to spell the ch word.

Mild – 1 star

Spicy – 2 stars

Hot – 3 stars

Tricky words

This week are: go, she and be. Please practise spelling and reading these words. To practise recognising these words give your child a highlighter and see how many they can find in a book or magazine!

  • Please continue to use the tricky word power points.
  • Challenge: If your child can read all of the words quickly and confidently test how well they can independently spell the tricky word when you read them out loud (just like dictation). Continue to practice your 100 fry words.


Task: Tell an adult three facts that you have learned from your book. Is there something that you would like to learn about the topic in your book but is not there?

Lizards: Clothes for Rain

Dolphins: Diggers

Lions: Patterns

Cheetahs: Ballet

Challenge: Julia Donaldson A Biography



Money Revision

Learning Intention

I am developing my awareness of how money is used and can recognise and use a range of coins.

Success Criteria

I can identify all coins to £2.

Warm up:

Video for coins:

Please play the following games as a warm up activity – On this game you can choose to sort the coins, order the coins or count the coins . Please play a selection of these games, talking about the difference between the coins, whether that be colour, size, the numbers written on them etc.




You could play this game first:


Please complete the coins detective worksheet: You will have to colour all of the same coins different colours. Can you read the words and colours on the worksheet yourself?

Test your child with real coins following this activity.


This is another activity that involves notes ( we haven’t worked notes at school but some children might be ready for this challenge). There is no need to print it, you can do it with real money.

Counting money activity

General ideas on Monday’s blog.

Have a Terrific Tuesday!
