Enjoy the Summer Break!!
Below you will find some information about reading, phonics and spelling that will help you ensure your child is ready for the new session in August.
There are also lots of links at the bottom of the page that you can continue to use to support learning at home 🙂
Any books that have been allocated but not completed will be left on Bug Club over the summer break.
It would be great if you could please log on to complete these before returning to school in August!
Primary 1 Phonics and Common Words
Here is an up-to-date list of sounds covered in P1 for you to use for consolidation of learning. Sounds highlighted in red were introduced as part of home learning so if any have been missed it would be greatly appreciated if you could introduce these to your child before returning to school in August.
Primary 3/4 Spelling
Below you will find a note of where each group should have completed up to in their ‘My Spelling Workbook’. If they have not yet completed up to this point, it would be greatly appreciated if they could do so before returning to school in August. Please return your child’s workbook to school in August.
The Great Whites: up to the end of Book C Unit 9
The Megalodons: up to the end of Book D Unit 11
Shark Boy: All of Book D
Find spelling games for your words on Spelling City https://www.spellingcity.com/users/MrsMartin18 – Lists are organised by book letter and unit number.
