You can use the other sounds too. Please write any you make on the homework page. e.g. bug, fog, bag etc. Please complete this homework for Friday.

The P1 children will be introduced to two new common words which can be reinforced at home by completing the common word homework for Thursday. Words for this week are on and all. You may need to help your child writing the number after counting the words together. Please write each word 2 times.
