Week 1 - Literacy
Each week Mr Gullen and Mrs McDougall will upload some Literacy activities for you to do at home. These will be a mixture of online links and worksheets. You can complete the worksheets in your pink book, just as you do in school, or print out the worksheet.
Monday to Thursday you should complete the activity listed and on Friday complete the writing task.
If you have any spare time keep an eye out for an activity grid that will be uploaded soon.
Remember to also learn the spellings listed in the spelling folder. You should have your own spelling booklet to complete. If you do not, then email us at
and we will upload the spelling booklet sheets.
When you have completed this page and your Numeracy, go to the World Around Us section on the home learning zone. Don't forget to learn your spellings and to read on Bug Club.
For this week the Literacy recount activities are the same for all groups.
All week keep a diary. Try to make it interesting, writing about how you and your family are keeping safe and are keeping brains and bodies active. Use the diary template or record in your pink book. Add a picture.
Use the tips and word mat to help you.
