Homework 28th October – Due Friday 1st November

Spelling – Access https://www.spellingcity.com/users/MrsKHorne, select the correct lists use spellingcity’s games to help you learn your words. Each week you are also to learn five words that you have selected yourself with the spelling rule taught on Mondays. These will not be on spelling city. Instead practise the rule making your words using active strategies (writing words on a partners back to guess, make with pasta or play doh, rainbow writing, cheerleading the words etc…). You do not hand evidence of this in to school. It should be short, fun and engaging. You will complete a short dictation which uses words of a similar difficulty, though not the 5 specific words, which follow the spelling rule on Fridays.

Talking and Listening – At some point during the week please sit down with your family to discuss your use of technology. During this time you should share some of the discussions which arose through our Internet Safety questionnaire on Thursday (Which information you should share online, images – trustworthy sources, do they show the whole picture and permission to share others’ images, your ‘online reputation’ – controlling who views your images and comments, who may view them in future, how your posts from behind your screen can affect others and how others’ posts and comments affect you…). This is an opportunity for you to discuss anything which may have affected you, or people you know, with your family and to talk about what you would or could do if you were upset by something online. You could even come up wth a plan where you regularly share with an adult what you have been using your online time to view so that both they, and you know you are safe if you all wish and do not already have this in place.  Having access to the internet requires trust and responsibilty, so try to be open and honest about what you do, and what you should do.

If you come up with any really good ideas that other families could use to help improve their internet safety we will be discussing these on Thursday during ICT.
