Welcome back, we hope you enjoyed the half term.
Homework for this week:
This week we will be reading and having whole class learning activities based on the book ‘The day the crayons quit’.
We will be assessing the children’s progress with their reading and their recognition of the key words this week. Whilst we are doing this we will not be sending home reading books as homework.
Phonics: Please help your child complete the following sheets in their red phonics book:
Tuesday – ue – the sound heard in cue, queue, barbecue
Wednesday – er – the sound heard in flowers and number
Thursday- ar – the sound heard in far, car, bar
For science week this week P1 will be investigating forces and electricity. We had a Ready, teddy, go! Science workshop on Monday where the children were predicting the affect of the following forces on a variety of objects:
Pushing, pulling, sinking, floating and friction.
Please can you help your child find a small toy to bring into school which shows one of the above forces for Tuesday. This should only be a small toy – a small car, a rubber duck, a small ball.
We will also be discussing the every day use of electricity and how to stay safe when using electrical appliances. Your child will have a worksheet to search for electrical items in the house. Please can you help them complete this by Friday.
