P2 Homework w.b. 18.3.19

Hi all,

We had a lovely day on Friday seeing all of the children dressed up as Disney characters or in red for Comic relief!

On Friday 29th March, P1 and P2 will be doing a Fairyland assembly for the school, we are going to do this for the parents too. Next week we will be deciding the parts and begin practising! A letter detailing the date of the assembly for parents and the parts will go out at the beginning of next week too – it will be in your child’s book bag.

P2 will also begin their rugby sessions on Monday, they will be getting rugby every Monday afternoon for 3 weeks. Please ensure your child has a full P.E. kit so they can take part!

Homework for this week: 

Spelling: We are learning the ‘y’ sound so the the spelling list will contain words with this sound and tricky words.

Reading: Please check your child’s green reading record for the pages to be read that night. If possible, could you please sign or tick your child’s reading record for that night just so I can check that reading has been completed. It is so important that reading homework is completed every night, as the more children read the more fluent and confident they become. Again, children are more than welcome to bring in their own books for personal reading time or story time.

Numeracy: The last 2 weeks we have been focusing on missing addend and subtrahend sums. These are sums with missing numbers, for example, 13 – _ = 10. The children have been learning to use a number line to work out the answer. This week I will be sending out a mixed sheet with missing addend and subtrahend questions, it will be due back in on the following Monday.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Miss Lauren Waller

P2 Homework w.b. 11.3.19


Apologies that this post is being uploaded later than usual. As the phonics worksheet went out late last week, I have decided only to give the children reading and spelling homework this week. Next week we will go back to having an additional task for them to complete.

Please check that your child has indoor and outdoor shoes for everyday and a full PE kit. 

Homework for this week:

Reading: Pages to be read that night are written in your child’s green reading record. Please sign your name beside the pages to be read that night so I can check that reading has been done.

Spelling: This week we are learning the ‘igh’ sound, this is in words such as bright, light, fright etc. Spelling lists will contain words with this sound and tricky words.

Hope you are having a lovely week,

Miss Lauren Waller

P3 Homework week beginning 11/3/2019




Red Nose Day

This Friday is Comic Relief. The enterprise has opted for a Disney theme and are welcoming donations for Comic Relief. Options for dressing up/down are fancy dress as a Disney/Fairy tale character or Disney/Fairy tale related clothing. We appreciate this is last minute, please do not feel obligated to buy something new for the occasion if children don’t have anything to fit the chosen theme they are encouraged to wear a red piece of clothing but of course school uniform is fine too.


This weeks spelling sounds are is ‘or’ and ‘al ‘, ‘aw’ and ‘au’ as in fork, jaw, walk and fault found on list 21 of the spelling sheet . However spelling homework this week is optional.

I have sent home a reading for understanding worksheet based on the children’s fairy tale ‘The Billy Goats Gruff’. This is the main homework alongside reading this week.


As normal select a task from the new home learning wall. Please remember to colour in tasks after you have done them so I can see what you have done at home and know when to issue a new home learning wall.

P4 Homework 11/03/2019

Firstly apologies for all the noisy items that came home last week; we had been learning about sound and how we make it and how it travels.

Homework this week:

Spelling – (for Friday 15th March) all words are in their homework jotter – sentences are to be made using these words, it does not have to be one sentence per word, they can use more than one spelling word in a sentence. Children should also learn their words in a  way of their choosing.

Reading – see their reading diary. We read every day so please ensure that reading homework is completed and that your child has their reading book and diary in school every day.

Maths. The children will have a fraction revision sheet this week – this is to be returned by Monday 18th March.

Swimming: This week is their last swimming session.

Red Nose Day: P4 will be at swimming on Friday so will not be able to dress up, they may get opportunity to go to the bake sale, I will check this. Red noses will be for sale this week at £1.25

Many thanks,

P6 Home Learning W/B 4th March 2019

Hi all,

Homework this week:

Spelling – There’s a new spelling list this week plus affect and effect.

Writing500 words. Deadline time!  The annual Radio 2 writing competition is upon us and closes on the 8th March so there’s not much time for us budding authors to get our stories written. I’d like this to be a flexible home/school task whereby children will get ample time in school to work on this and can  save their text onto USB sticks or I can email stories back and forth so that these can be worked on at home too.

Reading – Everyone will read for a minimum of 20 minutes per day in class.

Debates –Groups will get together and practise on Monday. One debate on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. New topics next week!

Numeracy – children will get a worksheet home on Tuesday to be handed in the following Monday.

Ski-ing –  Wednesday. Final week!

PETuesday and Thursday
