The P1 Rhyme Challenge

This week, our challenge is linked to one of COMETS key skills: rhyme.


Firstly, before you do this challenge with your child, ask them do they know what rhyme means? What is a rhyme? Can they think of any nursery rhymes? Can they give any examples orally?


Then, ask your child if they can they find items in your house that rhyme? Take a picture of the items that rhyme. Have a look at the pictures below for some ideas and to have a peak at some of the items that rhyme in our homes. Can you guess the rhymes from the pictures? A cat on a....?


Finally, send your rhyming picture to your teacher’s email or upload your picture under Monday’s P1 Facebook post so we can guess your rhymes!!!

If you haven’t done so already, have a look at the COMET Home Learning Pack to try some of the activities that link with our P1 COMET targets. 


Below are some pictures that link with rhyme. Can your child find the picture/word that doesn’t rhyme? Can your child explain why that picture/word doesn't rhyme?



We focus on number 10 this week. 


Warm up: Order the number cards from 1 - 10.  Ask your child to count to 10 pointing to each number. 


Activity: Play missing numbers - hide a number from the cards can your child guess what is missing. 


Task: Ask your child to complete the pages in the activity pack. 


A good game to revise numbers to 10 is to play “Say it, Make it, and Write it”

Watch the link below to play the game. 

Say it, make it, write it.

We are going to revise our numbers to 10 by saying each number, making a set for each number and writing the number.


Below is a link for Topmarks Maths.  Perfect games to practice numbers to 10 and ordering numbers.

Good choices are Count the Yeti and Teddy numbers

Listen to our Jolly Phonics song in the link below.


In your Essential Learning Pack complete the cut and stick activity for z and j. Look at the pictures, think of the first sound of each word.



Jolly Phonics Phase Two

children good

If you get that finished quickly why not try these ‘i-Spy’ pages – we appreciate that not everyone has a printer at home but you could even complete it verbally with your child.

HFW exercise:

This week our words are I’ve, come & said. To complete your rocket cut the words out from the table and stick under the correct word on the rocket.


What sentences can you think of that have these words in them?


We have completed a few high frequency word rockets and now is be the perfect time to revise them. Here’s one of my favourite ways to revise them… Write down the words we have covered in the past few weeks on large(ish) bits of paper. Go over these words with your child. Then pop a few of these words on the ground and ask your child to jump on the word you’ve said, e.g. jump on TO, Jump on LITTLE.


Now that you’ve got them written out you and your child could also jumble them up and make sentences out of them.


Revising our sounds and words regularly is an important part of helping our children retain this knowledge.

Pirate Rhyme:


This week we have a rhyming activity to complete based on our story, Pirates Go To School. Did you hear the rhyming words in this story?


Start off by looking at the pictures on the rhyming worksheet – say the word out loud. Now try and see if you can draw a line to match up the rhyming words.


Once you have that done see if you can write down the rhyming words – there is a word bank at the bottom of the page to help you spell some of these words.


When you’re finished why not practice this online rhyming game:

You’ll need to sign in to play but it’s well worth it – fantastic rhyming practice for your kids!


Use the worksheet from your Essential Work Pack (Week 8) to cut and stick the sentence, ‘Come with me.’


Some clues to help you with this are:

  • Which word has a capital letter? (This one comes first).
  • Which word has a full stop after it? (This word comes at the end).
  • Use your initial sounds to help you sound out the words.
