P1 Tigers Reflective Friday 12th March 2021

Another week when our tigers have made us proud !

Look at what we have been learning…



Our new sounds this week have been the blends fr and gr, and our new tricky words her and of. You can find the home learning sheet below. Please continue to work at home to consolidate the learning of the new sounds and using them to build and write words.

Fr is for Frog


In writing this week we retold the well known story of the Gruffalo. We were so impressed with the children’s independent writing skills.

We have practiced writing the cursive letter l.


We continue to work in school on developing our reading skills. As well as reading the words and learning new vocabulary we predict, discuss and comprehend. We hope you enjoy sharing the books with your children at the weekend. If you feel perhaps that they have memorised the book ( which is part of the learning process) then you could ask them to read the book backwards, starting with the last word. Of course this makes no sense , but the children do find it funny and it helps the adults to see if the child can read the words with little context. We use this technique in class so the children are familiar with the idea.

Please note that we cannot send reading books home on Thursday unless your child has their purple folder with them, and we would respectfully request that the children do not carry their water bottles in the purple bags – we have already had one soggy reading book!


We continue to work on our numeracy skills, consolidating counting forwards and back, numeral recognition and addition strategies.

Counting backwards is tricky for many of us, particularly when crossing a decade, so please practise counting backwards at home if possible.

We have also been learning about the words and abbreviations for ordinal numbers 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc

Here are some photographs of us enjoying our learning opportunities this week. Please ask us what we were doing.
