📗Some parents requested homework over the weekend so I am trialling TUES-MON homework. Pupils should bring their yellow diary, book and book bag every day, especially Mondays. Children should do 10-15 minutes each night to help consolidate learning in class and to enable them to progress.
Sample of activities: But work this around your lifestyle.
Day 1 – Look at the pictures and discuss what is happening, help them to read the words for first half. Play a 2 dice board game.
Day 2 – Reading whole book plus key words (It is important this is done as much as possible throughout the week)
Day 3 – Read book with pictures covered plus trying to make sentences with key words. Play dominoes.
Other: Read every night to your child, identify key words they spot in the story. Number bonds orally or apps like Teach your monster to read, phonics match or similar.”
IF YOUR CHILD HAS THE SAME BOOK, THIS IS JUST TO ENSURE CONFIDENCE AND DEPTH OF LEARNING BEFORE MOVING FORWARD.
SEESAW – I realise the letters home about the Seesaw class app never went home while I was off so I will send these out this week so children can complete tasks at home.
🌹Notes: Can bring £1 donation for a poppy to class. In school we are designing atrium Tea towels, these are not Christmas themed but we hope for them to be ordered in time for Christmas. Payment for these needs to be in by the £17th.
Maths: In class we have been learning to read numbers, count and add to 13. E.g. in the sum 2+7 we are encouraging children to start at the bigger number and “jump up 2”
