Good Morning Lovely Lions,

I hope you are having a lovely week so far!

Today we will have a whole class meeting at 11am. Today’s focus will be phonics. Please have a whiteboard or paper/pencil ready for the call.

Please share your learning on the Learning Journals! I love seeing what you are getting up to at home. Feel free to ask any questions on the learning journals or via email, I am more than happy to help with anything.

Thank you all for your support,

Miss McGillivray

Here are today’s learning tasks:



Today we will be focussing on building our comprehension skills during reading.


  1. Read your story forwards and then read it backwards. If there is any words you cannot sound out, have a go at writing it a few times. Say and point to the word in your book.
  2. Play find the word – ask your child to find a word within their story as quickly as they can. Can they tell you what the word means?


This week we will be learning the last few sounds in Block 3 of the Literacy Rich Programme. Each of these sounds only has a few words to learn, so we will be looking at 2-3 at a time!

We will be going through the powerpoint in today’s whole class session – if you are attending there is no need to look at this before.

Today’s sounds are: ‘lk’ ‘lm’ ‘ld’ and ‘lp’


  1. Please watch the powerpoint attached below. In this powerpoint, there is a number of tasks to do whilst you watch. Reading words, writing words and as an extra challenge writing a sentence using words which have our new sounds in them.

Tricky Words:

Attached below are the tricky word powerpoints we use in school. Ask your child to say the words quickly. They should be able to read these words from sight memory as we cannot sound them out. We have looked at all of the Block 3 words now, however, these still need some revision.

As an extra challenge ask your child to write some tricky words from memory. Please continue to practice these – especially Block 3! However it is good to go over block 1 and 2 daily!



Complete today’s speedy maths challenge! Again focus on using your mental maths strategies (counting in your head/on your fingers!)

Today’s Focus:

Today go into the outdoors and choose as many of the activities on the grid below to complete.

Have lots of fun playing and exploring number in the outdoors!

Please share what you get up to on the Learning Journals – would love to see how you explore numbers in your local environments.



Under the Sea

Today we are going to be learning about some of the creatures that live under the sea!

Watch these videos below to find out about what animals live under the sea:

Here is a powerpoint game – can you work out the sea creature from the descriptions?

Main Task:

Now it is your turn to be creative! Make your own sea creature picture! Choose one of the sea creatures you have just learned about and make a piece of art. You could draw, paint, create – whatever you like! Here are some photos for ideas! I am looking forward to seeing your creations!
