  • Remember to use ‘Inference’ when discussing books with an adult. Plus, the adult helping you with your reading can use ‘Guided Reading Questions: Level 1’ / ‘Reading Strategies’ in your Pupil Support Book.


  • Revise the following: author, illustrator, front of the book, back of the book, title, blurb, spine. Continue to focus on recognising the difference between a letter, a word and a sentence plus recognising the difference between a line of writing and a sentence. How many capital letters can you find? Can you retell your stories from start to finish in your own words? Continue to read with expression.


These activities are related to PDMU.

  • Even though our time together was shorter than anticipated I'd like you to think about your P1 year, especially your favourite memories. Here are some of my favourite memories when I was in P1 (a very long time ago!) - new friends, playing in the home corner and with the sand, making necklaces with popper beads, reading, singing around the piano, tasting a lemon and sitting on my teacher's chair!  Try to complete 'My favourite memories from this year'.

  • There's lots of talk about 'bubbles' in the news. You are nice and safe in your family bubble. Complete the activity 'Who is in my bubble?'

  • Other activities: Talk about your feelings. We all experience – happiness, sadness, excitement, worry, anger, etc. How do you feel at the moment? How do you feel about going back to school? Maybe you could write down your feelings on the bubble lined writing page. You might also like to try: 'Things that make me happy' / the 'Gratitude game'. 

  • Remember when you are writing to start each sentence with a capital letter, use finger spaces between each word and finish with a full stop. Read your sentences to an adult.


  • Sing your alphabet.
  • On P1 homepage click on Useful Links to access ‘Starfall’ ‘Letter Formation’ / ‘Jolly Phonics’ websites to REVISE ALL letter formation, letter sounds and words from a-z. If you have the ‘Hairy Letters’ app remember to use it too.
  • Take out the sounds, words and pictures that you got in your homework pack. Continue to revise them. Over the week see how many you can match independently.
  • Revise the vowel sound – a, e, i, o / u.



Write the word you hear?

  • Adult to call out the following words and you write them on your whiteboard or in your Literacy book: they, for, out, that, then, there, come / one.


 Write the sentence you hear?

  • Adult to call out the following sentence: I like to sit in the sun. You write it on your whiteboard or in your Literacy book. Try to draw the picture to match this sentence. Remember to use your sounds to sound out the words. Parents don't worry if your child writes 'lik' for like or 'son' for sun - it shows they're using their phonic knowledge.
