Wednesday 10.6.20 – Primary 1


Good Morning Primary 1.  I hope that you have …

Here are your learning tasks for today:


This week we are going to look at a different way to make the ai sound.

This is another long sound which can be made in different ways.  Our sound this week is made using the letters a and y – ay.

Here are some activities to try at home:

  • Online – There is a phonics task ready for you on Active Learn (BugClub).  This will allow you to learn the sound and practice making words.
  • Independent tasks – All – In your jotter write 5 ay words and draw pictures

Blue/Yellow – Try writing some sentences independently using your words or you could print and complete these ay task sheets.

ay bugclub

ay make and break

Green – Try writing a sentence with some support from an adult.

Or print and try this bugclub worksheet: ay cut and stick

– remember your capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

  • Online games – – phase 5


Purple Group tasks:  Please feel free to try the activities above but if you feel like trying something else look at the activities below:

  • I have set up some extra learning games on bugclub to revise the sounds.

Use your letter cards – can you make the words alongside the video clip?

Use your letter cards to make words – write the word in your home learning jotter.  Can you tell an adult or older sibling a sentence using this word (don’t worry about writing the sentence).

  • You could also print out and try this activity booklet –


Numeracy:  Addition and subtraction to 10

We have been learning about addition and subtraction to 10.  Here is a clip to help remind you:

Today we are going to use our knowledge of addition and subtraction to solve missing number sums.

Resources Needed – a set of small counters or loose parts, paper/jotter, pencil/pen

Circles – Please focus on addition and subtraction facts to 10 (or 20 for a challenge).

Triangles – Please focus on addition and subtraction facts to 5 or (10 for a challenge).

Below are a selection of activities to try at home – Please remember that you don’t have to do them all!

  • Here is a PowerPoint for you to work through with an adult or older sibling if you are able to:

count collections + screened

Work through the addition to 10 sums as a starter then try the missing numbers to 10

(remember to use counters, cubes or loose parts to help)

  • Work through this clip with an adult or older sibling – if you need some help remember your loose parts!

  • Try this practical activity:

  1. Write number sentence 6 + ? = 10 – How will we find this out?
  2. Place out 6 red counters and 4  green counters.  Say “Here are 6 counters, here are 4 green counters.  I’m going to cover the green counters”
  3. Place a screen (a piece of paper, plate or material) over the counters. Ask “How many counters are there altogether?”  
  4. Ask children to show you how many.  After your child has answered remove the screen to check.  Re-write number sentence 4 + 4 =10.
  5. Repeat for different examples – 2 red/2 green, 8 red/3 green, 10 red/4 green, etc.

4 + ? = 6          2 + ? = 7          1 + ? = 5         ? + 2 = 4         10 + ? = 10

To help with today’s task please watch the clip below or read through the powerpoint with an adult or older sibling:


Your task:  Create a bee factfile

Use the information from the powerpoint or clip above and create your own bee factfile.  You could use the template provided minibeast-fact-file-template or make your own.

Other tasks:

  • Bee hunt – Where is the best place to find a bee?  Draw or take a picture and write about it in your home learning jotter.  Remember to be very careful not to bother or frighten the bees – I don’t want you to get stung!
