All the best
Last week the children were given the homework letter with the curriculum overview for this term. I have also attached them below.
The children need to complete two pieces of homework, one for each half term.
Children need to read everyday this needs to be a high priority.
We HIGHLY recommend you visit www.phonicsplay.co.uk and try some of their free phonics games. The children have loved them and they have made a big impact.
Reading - At least five times a week and reading is always king, if you have not got enough time for homework please put reading as a priority. Enjoy listening, reading to and most importantly talking about what you like in the story with your child, a good conversation really helps them to understand what they have read.
Topic - NEW HOMEWORK -
This term we are going to be learning about how we can look after the world around us. We will be exploring the different ways we can help protect the environment and our persons of interest are David Attenborough and Greta Thunberg.
Spellings will consist of common exception words and words that follow a spelling pattern or particular spelling rule that directly links to the phonics we are leaning each week. They will be given on a Friday to be tested the following Friday. Please support and encourage your children to practise reading and writing their spellings everyday.
Please encourage your child to complete 20 stars on their doodle maths each week. This is part of their homework. If you have any problems or queries regarding Doodle maths please talk to Mrs Dixon.
Please visit the >Numicon< website for free downloadable resources, should you need them to support your child at home.
