We will develop our understanding of texts by listening to and discussing stories.  Your child will take home one/two reading books a week. We will be extending our phonetic skills to blend sounds to read words and phrases.

Help your child learn their key words and spend time discussing reading books together.

Ensure your child takes their reading book and word tin to school every day.


Initial sounds – reinforcement and correct letter formation.

Primary 1 Blends

Encourage and support your child when completing any phonics homework at home.  Tasks and activities will be posted in Google Classroom.

Imaginative writing linked to topics

Encourage your child to use a correct pencil grip when drawing or writing at home and encourage him/her to use correct letter formation.

Numeracy and Maths

We will continue to practise correct number formation, ordering, counting and subitising.  We will reinforce addition and introduce subtraction this term.  For topic maths we will focus on information handling, Time and Angles, Symmetry and Transformation.

Any practice is beneficial but should always be fun.  Use apps and games to reinforce number skills and knowledge.
