Hello P1 families. Well this is certainly topsy turvey, inside out, upside down and back to front as we say in P1 when things change or are a bit different. Learning at home instead of at school is certainly one of those occasions. We know how you like to be busy and this is your chance to shine and impress all the grown ups with your amazing skills and talents by trying some of these activities which we hope will be fun and help with your learning.
- Look around the home to find items that rhyme and make a list.
- Revising Jolly Phonics sounds and actions https://www.jollylearning.co.uk/jolly-phonics/
- Reading a story with a grown up before bed every night. Try and retell the story in your own words.
- Use toys or puppets to make up your own story.
- Practice your tricky words, recognising them in your stories and saying them. You can check these in your home learning pack.
