We are back to a full week and the following homework:
New spelling patterns are written up in individual homework jotters and taken home on a Wednesday afternoon to be returned the following Tuesday morning. This must be checked and initialled by an adult.
At home they should use:
LOOK THINK COVER WRITE CHECK
Write out their new spelling words three times in neat columns. They should also complete a green activity card which will earn pupils 2 credit card points. An optional red activity may be completed for extra practice (and 1 credit card point) but is not mandatory.
Reading will consist of a variety of activities including Literacy Circles, Novel Studies and individual reading tasks. A library novel will also be chosen by your child.
This week individual reading books will go home on Tuesday and returned on Thursday 31st October to be read again in class. Please check your child’s bookmark to note pages to be covered and ensure that you initial to show that an adult has heard reading at least once per week. Your child will read to an adult between two and three times per week in class. It is extremely important that you take the time to listen, encourage and correct any sounds that your child is reading incorrectly. Thank you for your support with developing your child’s love of reading.
