P1 Literacy




  • Read your word cards and word books.
  • Ask an adult to read one of your favourite story books. 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. Can you find any words in your story book that begins with our new sound ‘r’? Can you retell your story from start to finish in your own words?  
  • Listen to the story ‘Ridiculous’. (See link below). This links to our new WAU topic on ‘Winter’ and our PDMU.
    Can you retell this story from start to finish in your own words?
