P1 – Learning from Home week 4 (27th April – 1st May)

P1 – Learning from Home week 4 (27th April – 1st May)

Please find below all the details you will need for learning from home this week. Please remember to get in touch with your child’s teacher at least once a week to share what they have been learning. Also, if you have any questions or problems please just send us an email.

Week 4 Learning Grid

week 4 learning from home grid

Please find the week 4 learning grid attached. It would be great if you could work through as many of these activities as possible. Some of the boxes on the grid (coloured red) link to an attachment below. Please feel free to either print these and stick into the jotter or to copy the work onto a piece of paper or jotter.

WOW work

This week we will be focussing on rhyme for our WOW work. We will be choosing work from the rhyming sentences that you have written as part of the weekly grid activities. At the end of the week each teacher will choose an excellent piece of work from their class and this will be uploaded to the website next Monday.

YouTube Helpdesk

This week we have uploaded a couple of videos onto the P1 Helpdesk on YouTube. These videos will help with some of the learning in the weekly grid. Please visit the helpdesk here:

Rhyme activities

Here are a selection of activities to help your child to explore rhyming words. You can choose to complete 1 activity or all of them. You may wish to complete the activities on the screen, print them out or copy them into your child’s jotter or piece of paper.

Maths and Numeracy

Please remember to keep practising the daily activities listed in the Learning from Home jotter, as well as trying activities from the SEAL grids (in your child’s Homelearning jotter and provided on website last week).

We also want to encourage you to access the Sumdog website with your child. Over the coming weeks, maths and numeracy challenges and assessments will be set on Sumdog. Therefore, it would be helpful for pupils to have completed the diagnostic test before these are set. Please let us know if you require any assistance with this or to be reminded of your child’s login details.

The attachments below link to learning from the weekly grid. There is no expectation to complete all of the activities, they are there to provide some challenge and consolidation of the activities.

Topic – My Family

This week we are focussing on a Health and Wellbeing topic and will be looking at ‘My Family’. This is linked to the new Health and Wellbeing resource for Scotland and more information can be found here or in the attachments below.



Learning Intentions

  • Children talk about their own family. • Children are able to describe the role of parents and carers. • Children discuss different family situations.

Success criteria

  • I understand that families are made up of lots of different people who care for us. • I can think about my own family. • I know that I have a right to be cared for in certain ways and why this is important. • I know that care can be different and come from different people. • I understand there are lots of types of family. • I appreciate that everyone comes from different kinds of families. • I am learning to respect how people’s lives are different.

Below are some links to help you with the tasks this week.

Every kind of family

P1 – Welcome back message

Welcome back to Term 4 of Primary 1! We all hope you have had a lovely Easter holiday and are excited to be back at ‘school’. We would all have loved to have been at our classroom doors to welcome you back today but seeing as that is not possible we thought we would send you a little video message. We are all missing you lots and can’t wait until we are back together again.

Kindness at Trinity – week 2

This week we have had lots more kind acts shared with us. As we start the Easter holidays please remember to continue being kind to each other and think about what you could do to make someone smile. Next we are going to move onto our value of ‘Creativity’ and after the holidays we will be sharing some of the creative things you have been up to.

Primary 1 – Tricky Words

One of the daily tasks issued for P1 is to practise reading and writing their tricky words. This week there is also a brick on the activities grid to practise tricky words.

The expectation in P1 is that all children will be able to read and write the block 1 tricky words. Some children have already achieved this and are ready to move onto block 2. Please do not move on until your child is confident reading and writing the words from the previous block.

Primary 1 – Week 2 Learning from Home (30.3.20)

Please find below the documents needed for week 2 of Learning from Home for Primary 1. We have included a grid of activities for week 2 and please continue to practise the daily activities provided in the jotter and in our previous post. This week we have also uploaded some worksheets that you may choose to complete with your child. These could be printed off or copied into your child’s jotter for them to complete. There are also some suggestions for P.E. activities for you to try at home.

Communication from home

It has been lovely for all of the P1 teachers to receive updates and photos of the Learning from Home so far. We ask that, if possible, every family could share at least a weekly email with their child’s teacher (and more regularly if you wish). This way we can keep in touch, offer advice and also know that our families and children are safe and well during this time. Email addresses for each teacher were shared in a previous post and are also available in your child’s jotter.


  • Please remember to be kind to yourselves during this time. Although we have provided a grid of activities please do not feel any pressure to complete all of these. We would rather that you and your children are happy and do not want to add stress at this already stressful time.
  • Please remember that we operate a play based approach to learning in P1. At school your child may work in a focused, small group with the teacher for a maximum of about 20 minutes at a time. Please allow lots of downtime for your children and be understanding that they may lose focus after a short amount of time.
  • We have seen lots of fabulous sentence writing this week which has been great. Please remember that we do encourage children to ‘have a go’ at writing unfamiliar words using the sounds they can hear, rather than spelling everything out for them. This is a very important part of learning to write and encourages their independence. We would rather that they tried to write words phonetically than having all words spelled correctly. There is a short video on writing a sentence on our YouTube help desk.

Thank you and sending our best wishes to you all,

P1 Team
