- Spelling: pupils have written their new spelling words in their jotter on Wednesday this week. At home they should use: LOOK THINK COVER WRITE CHECKto write out their new spelling words three times in neat columns. They should also complete an activity card which will earn pupils 2 credit card points. An optional second activity may be completed for extra practice (and 1 credit card point) but is not mandatory. Completed spelling homework should be returned the following Tuesday to be marked and the next spelling pattern will be given for homework on Wednesday each week.
Please cover your child’s homework jotter using wrapping paper or old wallpaper to help keep it from ripping as it goes back and forth between home and school. All pupils have also been given a plastic folder to help with this transition.
- Numeracy & Maths: please use the enclosed activity sheet to practise addition work which has been taught in class. Pupils can write straight onto this sheet so no need to copy into their jotters and this can be returned in their folder on Tuesday of the following week.
- Reading: all pupils have been allocated a new reading book which will go home on Wednesday each week to be returned on Friday for in class activities and then taken home to be returned again on Tuesday with their other homework
- PE/Health & Wellbeing: will be an outdoor activity where possible and to that end, can children please come dressed for outdoor PE on the allocated day each week (see dates below). An outdoor kit will consist of trainers, jogging bottoms/leggings, t-shirt and outdoor showerproof jacket. We have no changing areas at present so children will wear their kit for the day.
