Good afternoon! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. Homework and reminders for the coming week can be found below.
Sounds: Sound cards for “er” and “ar” have been added to the book bags.. Please continue to practice all of the sounds learned to date. 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: It is very important that the children are practicing their sight words as much as possible as this will build their confidence in reading them independently. Please continue to check over these with your child as often as possible. 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 by Tuesday. Please read 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.
Book Hunt: On Friday we headed out to hide the first of our books for our Book Hunt. A huge thank you to the parents who came with us to help. Folders with books and covering letters were sent home for hiding with the children. Thank you if you have already hidden your book. Please remember photos can be emailed to us (we have already had one set of photos sent) which we will post on the blog to send out clues as to where the books are hidden. The children can also go book hunting themselves for any that their classmates have already hidden. You can also send photos if the children are lucky enough to find any. Happy hiding ….. and finding …….. and reading!
Maths: Please choose one of the dotted activities on the maths sheet. Once completed, please sign and date the sheet beside the chosen task.
H&WB: March school targets are being set with the children. If your child’s February target has been achieved, please set a new one for March with them.
- P.E. will be on Monday and Friday. Please remember long hair should be tied back and earrings removed or covered.
- Please remember to add any books your child has read to their Reading Challenge Passport.
- 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 & 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.
