Primary 4: Mrs. Jackson’s Literacy Challenge (Everyone in P4 can do this)

Mrs. Jackson’s Daily Primary 4 Literacy Challenge

Take your child to work, take home a prize! – Michigan Medicine ...

Hi Primary 4, how’s the home schooling going? Can’t believe that it’s been almost 2 weeks. I thought that I’d give you some time to get used to your teacher tasks before I interfered!

I am just giving you notice that I will be posting a daily task on the Trinity Primary Website for you to have a go at.

Each day I will suggest a book from Oxford Owl for you to read or listen to; give you some spellings to learn and set a quick writing challenge.

How does that sound?

If you have time today please begin tomorrow’s task and get in touch with me:

  1. Read or listen to Eric’s Talking Ears at www.oxfordowl.co.ok

  • Can you create a silly story with some of these ee/ea words? Underline the ee/ea sounds.

There are many really interesting animals in this story – zoo animals to pet animals.

Cartoon Giraffe Cliparts, Stock Vector And Royalty Free Cartoon ...
  • If you could be one of these animals what would it be? Tell me about your day as this animal – Where would you live? What would you eat? How would you entertain yourself? Who would look after you? Would you prefer this life?

Draw a picture to match…

Email your finished work to:

Good Luck!

Primary 2 Parents/Carers: Help with Spelling and Phonics

During these tricky times ‘ Learning from Home’ is becoming part of our daily lives and many of you will be trying to establish routines quite different from before. For Primary 2 parents this is an even harder task as your child is still very reliant on adult support.

Reading and writing is so important at this stage and so I have attached a link to a useful website that your child can watch each day and will help explain phonics in more detail :

I have also copied a Sound Chart that you can go over with your child each day in order that they keep up their single sounds and double sounds recognition.

Every day – go over this sound chart. MTYT – My Turn Your Turn

Many of you may already listen to ebooks and Audible is offering free subscriptions for the next few months. I highly recommend trying this out! Just go to:

https://stories.audible.com/start-listen

In the following weeks try out the website and become familiar with the Sound Chart.

Good Luck
