Good afternoon! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. We have had a very busy first week back at school. The children have been working hard. Homework and reminders for the coming week can be found below.
Sounds: Our sound card for “oo” will be sent home this week. Please continue to practice all of the sounds in the book bags. These should be looked over as often as possible at home. To challenge your child, please ask them to think of/find something that begins with or contains that specific sound.
Word Walls: Please continue to check over these with your child as often as possible as this will build their confidence in reading the words independently. Only the words highlighted in yellow should be practiced. Your child should also be able to use these words correctly in a sentence. Once we are seeing your child do so, with confidence, we will highlight the box green.
Reading: New reading books will be sent home this week. Please read over them with your child, discussing the story/words. The children should sound out the words and, where necessary, use the picture cues to help them “read” the words.
New home readers have also been chosen and these will be kept for 2 weeks. Please read, and discuss, the story with your child using the Three Sharings method. Library books will be collected in on Friday.
Listening & Talking: As a school we celebrate “All About Scotland” during the month of January. The children will be learning a Scottish poem of their choice to recite to the class later this month. They should practice this poem as much as possible at home. Please click here for further details.
Maths: You will find a new Bingo sheet in the book bags. Please complete 1 activity. Once completed, please sign and date the sheet beside the chosen task.
H&WB: As mentioned last week, we will be setting new targets for the children to complete. Target sheets will be issued this week. Please click here for further details.
- P.E. will be on Monday and Friday. Please remember long hair should be tied back and earrings removed or covered
- Book bags should be checked each evening for homework and any letters which may have been issued. These letters should be removed from the book bag.
- Read and Munch will be on Friday.
As always, if you have any questions regarding homework, please do not hesitate to contact us. This can be done via the blog or your child’s book bag.
